Measuring properly is the most critical part of ensuring a muzzle fits well. Below are some examples of each measurement needed and how to take them. It is important not to add anything extra to the measurement. We account for this already! Submitting photos of the measurements on your dog is also highly recommended. Should you have any questions or need any assistance, please feel free to reach out!
Dogs which are difficult to measure may be measured first using a length of string, and then measure the string afterwards.
Check out the video below for tips on how to measure!
Nose length is one of the most common incorrect measurements I see. The measurement must be started from 1/2” below the eyes to the tip of the nose. It may be tempting to round up to the nearest half inch, however this will result in the muzzle being too long. It is important to note that whatever length of muzzle is sticking out past their nose will also have the potential of being pushed back up into their eyes as they sniff.
Measure your dog’s bridge width at the top only, and do not curve the measurement around the sides of the snout as this will create a larger measurement than is necessary.
For dogs such as bully breeds with very wide bottom jaws, please make sure to either include a picture of your pup or a note indicating the breed so that adjustments can be made to allow for the additional width!
This measurement is just as it sounds- from the top of the snout to the bottom of the lower jaw while the mouth is closed.
If you aren’t able to easily measure pant height, you can also place a tennis ball or other large toy either in the dog’s mouth or underneath their chin and measure with that there as well. Having pictures of your dog panting can also be beneficial in order to see if they are a big panter or not.
Nose Tip to Neck
Some dogs have long bottom jaws, others have short ones. Measure from the end of the snout to just where their jaw meets their neck. If the front of their neck sticks out more than this measurement, measure to that spot instead.
Note: do not measure to where your dog’s jaw ends; only to the front of their throat.
Ear to Ear
Measure from below one ear and around the back of the head to the other ear. While the straps are adjustable, it is important to make sure this measurement is not taken too loosely to ensure a snug enough fit.
Start measurement from 1/2” below the eyes, up the forehead and finish approximately 1” below the ears.
Cheek to Cheek
Measure approximately from the centre of one cheek underneath the jaw snugly to the centre of the other cheek. This measurement is for the collar strap which sits like a martingale collar for added security. This strap is adjustable.
For collar orders, please measure the circumference of the base of the neck where the collar will sit. For martingale style collars, please measure circumference at the top of the neck just below the head.
