Shitzu Muzzle Buying Guide
Now that you have seen some of the options available to you, I will go over some of the features available in muzzles that you may want in your pup’s muzzle. Alongside explaining why you would want them, I will also give a basic definition of the term.
Nylon and Mesh Combo Material
Nylon and Mesh is the most common materials in quality dog muzzles. There are few materials that beat nylon for both comfort and durability for long lasting usage. The mesh is preferred thanks to it adding additional breathability to the muzzle, lowering the natural worry every dog owner feels with muzzles.
If the muzzle pulls over your dog’s face it is vital that you be sure the eye holes will be placed in a non-painful position. Measure your dog carefully and compare to their sizing guide before purchasing.
Many muzzles are made with openings or holes in them to allow your pup to drink, in the worst case scenario of them getting away with it on you don’t have to worry about them being unable to drink. It also sets your dog at ease to be able to drink water with their muzzle on.
Tear and Chew Resistant
This is great for those puppies who chew apart anything they get their teeth on. With a chew proof muzzle you don’t have to worry about them tearing the muzzle to pieces at the earliest opportunity.
Having an adjustable strap on the muzzle allows for you to best fit the muzzle to your dog’s jaw. Some dogs have slightly odd shape to their mouths which makes fitting them into a muzzle difficult at times. The adjustable feature also lowers the risk of the dog managing to pry the muzzle off with the tighter but not too tight fit.
This is right up there with Drinkability in terms of importance. There are many muzzles that the material used is not easy to breath through, causing unnecessary panic in your dog or in some extreme cases health issues. Mesh is the best known fabric for this which is why it is so wildly used in muzzles, for your dog’s safety and comfort.
