There are lots of situations where using a muzzle can greatly benefit any dog, and responsible owners are now proactively using this tool for visits to the groomers, public transport or to prevent wildlife scavenging. The Ultra Muzzle offers clever features to improve ease of use and your dog’s comfort, whilst strongly retaining our product promise of safety first. And for dogs that are reactive around other dogs, people or new situations – like vet visits – the Baskerville Ultra Muzzle is a great choice.
1 Safe and secure
The Ultra Muzzle helps remove the risk in situations like vet and groomer visits, riding on public transport and dog walks in the park. Made with durable Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR), this dog muzzle is very strong and secure, for peace of mind wherever your adventures take you.
2 Versatile range
Dogs are full of energy and panting is an important way for them to cool down and self-soothe in stressful situations. That’s why the Ultra Muzzle was designed to allow your dog to pant, drink and enjoy treats while being worn. It’s humane basket-style design makes it the ideal choice for daily walks or for occasional use.
3 Heat shape for a custom fit
Like a mouthguard, the Ultra Muzzle can be heat-shaped to fit your dog’s unique size and shape. You can find out more about how to do this in the fitting instructions.
4 Optimal fit
This innovative dog muzzle is available in a variety of sizes, making it ideal for small, medium and large dogs.
How do I acclimatize my dog to wearing a muzzle ?
It’s important to remember that for your dog having a new training aid on their head / face will feel unusual for your dog and it is perfectly normal reaction for them to try and remove it. We encourage you to help your dog acclimatise to the muzzle by using positive associations methods. This can be through using treats to encourage your dog to place their nose into the muzzle and placing the muzzle on the dog for a few seconds, then taking the muzzle off and rewarding immediately. Build up the length of time the muzzle is on slowly, so your dog has time to adjust. You can find more information on how to do this with the ‘how-to’ video on this page. If your dog is trying to take the muzzle off, try to distract them with a treat or their favourite toy to stop this behaviour. In the early days of acclimatising your dog we strongly recommend you use the collar loop and the headstrap for increased security and stability and minimise muzzle movement if your dog tries to remove it.
How long can a Baskerville muzzle be worn?
Due to the Baskerville basket style design, our muzzles can be worn for longer periods e.g. for daily dog walks, as the dog can pant and drink at all times with the muzzle on.
However, even with Baskerville muzzles we do not recommend leaving these on your dog for extended periods of time unless absolutely necessary e.g. your dog is aggressive even at home. We recommend, as with all our products, to fully supervise your dog while they are wearing the muzzle from both a safety and welfare perspective. In the early days of muzzle training this will also ensure your dog does not remove the muzzle and potentially chew the product.
