Tips & Advice
Introducing a muzzle to your dog
When first introducing a muzzle to your dog we recommended taking your time. Not rushing the acclimatization process will ensure your dog accepts wearing a muzzle as a positive process, not a punishment. In the end, if wearing a muzzle becomes part of the daily routine for your dog when going out for a walk, or to the vet or groomer, then your dog will view it in the same way as putting on their lead!
Please see the Baskerville videos in this section for our top tips on introducing a muzzle to your dog.
Tailored fitting of the Baskerville Ultra Muzzle
The Ultra Muzzle can be warmed and molded by hand to provide a more tailored fit for your dog. The Baskerville videos in this section will show you how to do this in more detail.
To avoid any heat injury to hands we would suggest placing the rubber part of the muzzle in a bowl of hot tap water (not boiling water) and leave to soak for about 2 minutes.
Then reshape the muzzle by hand and cool in cold water to set shape.
Then test fit on the dog. You may need to do a couple of cycles of this shaping and fitting process to get the width fit right.
Please note - the muzzle reshaping process might have to be repeated every few months as the rubber will pull back to its original shape over a period of time.
