  • Why I like leather muzzles...

    They don't have to fit perfectly to work.

    I don't know Maggie, it looks like there is a pretty big opening there for him to get you. I like using a cat muzzle on Chichuahua's if they are to small and snappy to use a regular muzzle on. I also received a while ago some muzzles from pet edge that have a stiff mesh enclosure at the end of the muzzle. They can still breathe easily but the possibility of them nailing you is significantly lowered. Add the help of the GH and you are safe as can be.

      Too funny

      Really cute, always the little ones that need it the most.

      I really like that grate on your tub did it come with it or do you order it seperately?

        Looks like is would be stiff enough that the end of the muzzle would not bend enough to let the little ones teeth to get you. Were did you find them?

          i wish they made leather muzzles for CATS! i have almost been naild numerous times by cats because they get their tooth hooked into the muzzle and then they can getcha because by this timethey can then chew the muzzle...and since they can then chew it they can then bite you. i know some dogs that with those nylon muzzles they can STILL bite you...some arent a perfect fit and the dogs have a little bit of room to beable to open their mouths. with a leather basket muzzle (or even a plastic basket muzzle) it covers the front of their mouth and there is no way they can bite you. which is why when my one dog buddy had to be muzzled we spent 30 dollars on a leather basket muzzle...he could STILL drink and open his mouth...but there was no way he could nail us for it. plus it was much easier to get on him than a nylon muzzle would have been. with those types of muzzles you have to make sure the dogs mouth is CLOSED to slip it on..and if its not they are just going to rip the muzzle OUT of your hand and snap at you...so therefore now they know whats coming and are pissed off. your lucky to even try to attempt to get the muzzle back. with the leather basket muzzle it was nice and easy...he didnt feel threatend by it because he could still open his mouth...whereas with the nylon muzzle since he couldnt open his mouth he became extremly aggressive about it. personally id rather invest in a basket muzzle than a nylon one but thats just MY personal experience. some dogs accept them others dont...like the lady who posted about being trapped in her kitchen by a rottie i believe once she busted out that muzzle the dog went nutso!
          they know what it looks like...and if it dosnt look familiar they arent going to recognize it...and since its not forcing their mouth closed they arent going to be as stressed out about it being on...they can then growl and snap at you all day long but your not going to get bit because it covers the WHOLE mouth. dogs happy snapping away at you and you dont have the least bit of worry about that muzzle coming off or even getting a tiny little nip...

            here ya go...these have a nylon strap just like the nylon muzzles do...easy on easy off. these would be the muzzles ID use....none of those nylon ones for me no thanks!
            http://www.petedge.com/shopping/prod...ctID=6125&AS=1 this is only 40 dollars and comes with 12muzzles

            so ya see...id go with the plastic baskets over the nylons.

              Sheila, the muzzle extends past his nose and is hard so he can't pinch through it like a cloth muzzle. Its sort of the same idea behind an e-collar, but it goes around his nose instead of his neck.

              Daperdog, I have no clue, I work at a vets office and they had it before I ever started, but I love using it, less bending over for me!

              Shei, thats what I love about them! They belong to the vets office where I work, I don't know where you can buy them, but they had them at my previous job in VA, too.

              Houndlover, the cat muzzles we use are like this but bendable yet hard plastic: http://www.campbellpet.com/images%5C...5Ccatcone1.jpg

              Ironically, the one I found using google is leather, so they are out there!

                I hate hate hate basket muzzles. I have gotten so many bruises from dogs trying to nail me with one of those hard baskets on. THey nail you hand with the hard plastic and that hurts almost as much as getting bit. I like the soft polyester set better, I have never seen leather muzzles that is cool too.

                  ah but poodle...id rather have a bruise from the muzzle than a dog bite no matter HOW small. ive almost gotten bit by dogs WEARING cloth muzzles...id rather prefer the ones that the WHOLE MOUTH is ALL THE WAY AROUND enclosed..including the front. i bruise easily anyways...i can whack my arm on something and there goes the bruise! i welt easy too...nothing you can really do about dogs clawing up your arms either eh? ill take bumps welts and bruises over puncture wounds and bites any day.

                      also another thing about the nylon muzzles...last place i worked i said oh i dont like those muzzles the dogs can still bite you if they really wanted to...boss goes oh no they cant. they CANNOT bite you with those muzzles. i had my serious doubts about that too...my thing iwanted to ask her was this...okay if they cannot bite you...why dontcha stick your hand near their muzzled mouth and see what happens? also i wonder why she always jerked her hand back if they CANNOT bite you with those muzzles on?
                      when i groom i dont CARE how much more those leather OR plastic basket muzzles cost...plastic basket muzzles are by far better for groomers as they care cheaper and they come with the plastic clip. the leather one was a buckle one and cost 30 dollars for our dog. but it was a hard leather muzzle...no way am i even chancing it that the dog cannot bite me. most muzzles the dogs mouth protrudes from the end anyways...
