We provide the option to customize your muzzle for what you need it most. For more serious bite-risks, consider the bite guard to reduce the flexibility of the muzzle. See the videos below for a demonstration on the difference between these two options. A treat hole can be added to any muzzle at no charge; however, in cases where scavenging is a risk, treats can still be administered without it too!
Custom Vinyl Muzzle
All Mia’s Muzzles are custom made to your dog’s specific measurements. Made out of 2mm thick crystal clear vinyl, they are lightweight and strong. These types of muzzles are great at protecting your dog from scavenging and nipping, and are still soft enough that an accidental muzzle punch is no problem. Personal customization requests are available.
All Mia’s Muzzles come with a carabiner hole located at the bottom of the muzzle by the neck. For additional stability, a carabiner (found at most dollar and hardware stores) can be fitted through the hole and attach to the collar.
Biothane is a synthetic leather alternative that has become very popular in the pet trade due to its high durability, water resistance, odor resistance, and availability in many fun colours. It is lightweight, has a rubbery texture, and is extremely strong. For dogs getting daily use of their muzzles, or ones that are particularly adventurous and prone to water or dirt, biothane is very easy to clean.
An adjustable forehead strap which runs up between the eyes of the dog. Typically more helpful for shorter-nosed dogs with little to no nose length to hold up the muzzle.
Treat holes are handy for rewarding your dog while wearing the muzzle. Free of charge, the treat hole is a 1” diameter hole on the front of the muzzle for easy feeding. Simply check off the box on the order form if you’d like the treat hole added to your muzzle.
Solid Front/Scavenger Guard
For dogs that are prone to eating things they shouldn’t, it’s recommended that either the Solid Front or Scavenger Guard option be chosen to prevent anything from being eaten through the front holes.
The Solid Front Option is simply the lack of the front-most vertical row of holes to act as a stool guard and does not utilize a second layer of vinyl. Without a treat hole, treats can instead be dropped down through the top holes. This is not difficult once both you and your pup have practiced it a few times!
The Scavenger Guard can be chosen if you still wish to have a treat hole for training, OR if you have both a scavenger and a bite risk dog. It is a second layer of solid vinyl placed inside the muzzle which, like the regular Bite Guard, can be removed and replaced as needed. This allows you to cover and uncover the front treat/air holes as needed to prevent scavenging, and will additionally reinforce the front of the muzzle the same as the Bite Guard does.
While the regular 2mm vinyl is bite-resistant, it is highly recommended that for determined or high-risk biters to also include the bite guard. This option includes a double layer of vinyl on the front of the muzzle, increasing the thickness to 4mm (thicker than your average bite-proof vinyl muzzle). This decreases the flexibility of the muzzle substantially to ensure effectiveness.
Add your pup’s name or other general phrase to the muzzle! Choose from pre-set phrases or create your own. Comes in regular (lettering only) or high-vis (with yellow biothane to increase visibility). Available on either the top bar or side bar of the side straps, whichever you prefer. For size medium and up only.
High quality hardware that is less prone to rusting and comes in several different colour options!
For quick on and off convenience, the quick-release buckle is a sturdy plastic buckle on adjustable straps. Simply move the buckle up and down the straps to get the perfect length and you’re good to go!
Standard vs. Bite Guard
As it can be hard to visualize how a muzzle can not be bite-proof, here is a quick demonstration on the difference between the two.
The standard option will stop nipping and scavenging, but if enough force is applied the dog may still be able to bite through it. This is the same for any flexible-type muzzle.
The bite guard option creates a double wall against the front end of the muzzle, removing virtually all of its ability to be bent inwards.
