How to Choose an Italian Basket Dog Muzzle.
Your dog MUST have enough room to pant & open his mouth when the dog muzzle is on.
CIRCUMFERENCE
The circumference given is the exact circumference of the basket.
The dog muzzles circumference must be larger than your dogs nose measurement.
If your dogs nose is the exact same size as the dog muzzle, your dog will not be able to open his mouth to pant & drink water.
How does my dog drink water with a basket dog muzzle on??
For most basket dog muzzles, the dog should be able to put his snout in a water bowl and lap the water up from inside the basket muzzle.
Drinking water is something that your dog will have to figure out on his own.
LENGTH This muzzle is not for flat or pug nose breeds.
