Muzzles

Looking for a leather basket muzzle, preferably with the hard strip at the nose.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a brand they like?

I don't have one. But if I did, I want a customized one from working dog dry goods. I really like the company and what they are doing for working dogs too.

Sorry, I just saw this. Of course I use muzzles, Kimber has a muzzle title .Are you talking like an agitation muzzle? My favorite muzzle I have is actually the least expensive from For Dog Trainers. The leather is actually really nice, good quality, Iíve had it three years and have zero issues with it. https://www.fordogtrainers.com/leath...ng-p-3849.html

I also have a redline muzzle that is also decent, but I usually just use that one to entridice dogs to the muzzle.

Iíve heard great things about Hortons custom muzzles, but I donít have any experience with them personally. https://hortonsquality.com/Muzzles/

@mycobraracr

It doesn't have to be hardcore agitation. He took exception to the vet being to close to me and Jax last time. Decent one for safety, not work but I want plenty of air flow for him, with the nose strip that he can't bite thru.

Iíd check out some of the muzzles from for dog trainers. Iíve been really impressed with their quality on their muzzles. Iíll be buying a wire basket muzzle from them in the near future, just havenít got one yet.

You are happy with the airflow on that? If she can work in it then he can certainly have enough to sit thru a vet exam. I should be able to call and get help with sizing, right?

I have never used a leather muzzle, but I do recommend plastic jafco muzzle and this wire muzzle: https://www.german-shepherd-dog-bree...erd-p-375.html

One problem with jafco though is that the airflow could be better.
One problem with the wire muzzle is that it really hurts when the dog bumps into you. Also I am somehow paranoid about children poking fingers into the wire opening, lol, guess that is because I used to be that crazy kid haha.

Let us know if you find a leather muzzle you like! I love trying out new muzzles on my dog

For this purpose, you only need an inexpensive cloth muzzle you can get at a pet store.

I don't like the cloth muzzles.
