The Jafco Muzzle is lightweight, comfortable and secure, a perfect muzzle. Invented and developed by a professional police dog trainer!
The Jafco Muzzle is a secure muzzle designed for your dog's comfort and safety. The muzzle will allow your dog to bark, pant, eat treats, and drink (make sure the dog has a deep enough water bowl / bucket).
The Jafco Basket Muzzle is perfect for:
Preventing being bitten while training an aggressive dog.
Preventing wound licking.
Preventing eating items such as rocks and sticks.
Jafco Muzzles are easy to clean and cushioned for comfort. Ventilation holes are 5/8" in diameter except for the Treat Hole (optional) which is 7/8". The 5/8" openings easily fit the nozzle of an Easy Cheese canister or pretzel sticks for positive reinforcement training. Choose the Treat Hole option for feeding larger sized treats.
Available in two different materials. High-density plastic muzzles are available in white or black. These fairly rigid muzzles are best for light-weight security. Clear, flexible vinyl muzzles are best for comfort and for being able to view your dog's facial expression during training. The clear version is also less visible to the public.
More options! Now available with 3 Straps for additional security and/or Treat Hole for easy treat feeding. The 3 Straps version includes an extra strap for additional security that goes between the dog's eyes. This is very useful for dogs that have shorter snouts and as an extra security measure. Muzzles with a Treat Hole option include a 7/8" large hole for convenient treating!

We now offer two brands of muzzles, if you would like to compare the two, you can check out our Muzzle Comparison Chart.
We recommend ordering based on the breed and weight of your dog as long as your dog is a standard size/weight. If you wish to measure, use a soft measuring tape and measure the length of your dog’s snout from the very end of his nose to the point at which the flat plane of his snout starts to slope upwards to the eyes as shown left. Then, measure around the widest part of your dog's snout while his mouth is closed. If your measurements indicate a size different from your dog's breed in the chart below, please measure again to be on the safe side. Unsure of size? Ask the manufacturer at JAFCOMUZZLES@AOL.COM or 800-742-0389. When contacting, please let the Jafco know that you will be ordering from Pet Expertise and be ready with your dog’s breed, weight, and snout measurements.
Not recommended for small dogs with short noses such as Pugs and Boston Terriers.

The vinyl portion is too shallow for my dog's muzzle. When I attach the third top head strap, the muzzle becomes either too tight (butting up against her nose) or too loose (causing the strap to slide around and obstruct her view).
I wish the vinyl portion had a deeper cavity, so my dog could breathe easily and I could be sure the muzzle would stay on securely and comfortably. PetExpertise response: We would love to help you find the best size for your dog Megan as it sounds like a different size would work better for your dog.
My dog is much more comfortable in the muzzle rather than the giant cone. She is wearing this for wound licking due to a food allergy. Thank you so much. We did a lot of research before deciding on this particular muzzle and it is working out well.
We ordered the basket muzzle after our dachshund, in two separate incidents, swallowed acorns, both of which required thousands of dollars of veterinary surgery to remove. I selected standard shipping and your package arrived in two business days. The measuring instructions on your web site were excellent. The muzzle fits our dog perfectly, and thus far, has not affected his sniffing! I am a very satisfied customer.
Ordered the Clear #2 w/ 3 strap. My Australian Sheppard’s muzzle is 3" long and 9" around. Ordered muzzle because she has had surgery and will rip stitches out if given a chance. Last time, had to get her re-sewed up 4 times! She is able to pull this muzzle off in less than 5 minutes. Although the muzzle fits with her snout touching the end on the inside, the way the straps secure are too easily defeated unless your dog has large stiff ears. With the strap only going behind ears (soft silky ears) and only over the top of the head, she just pulls the strap back over her head. - no matter how tight they are. I even attached the top strap to her collar, only to wake up this morning and see the muzzle dangling off on one side still attached to collar. The rubber straps stretch to assist in pulling it off. Mind you, I cannot pull the muzzle off when pulling on the snout part of the muzzle up/down or sideways. It is the straps that are too easily pulled back over her head. Recommend they add a strap that that goes all the way around the neck for better security. I can see how it may be affective for a german Shepard (pictured) Cannot use this device for my particular dog.
The muzzle fit perfectly and is helping the dog to feel calmer. The directions that came with it were very helpful because we were worried he wouldn't take to it since he won't tolerate a GL nor could we put a Harness even over his neck. The owner was able to acclimate him to it over a week's time.
We ordered the size 4 (clear vinyl) for our 95lb German Shepherd, and it fits perfectly! We even cut out a hole so we could still feed him treats while he is wearing it, and the integrity of the plastic held up!
The great thing about this muzzle, is that he can still pant and bark if need be!
These are high quality muzzles that are very effective. My dogs haven't been able to get them off and didn't throw much of a fit over wearing them. They are easy to clean and being able to put a treat in them helps the dog to accept the muzzle much faster.
If your dog needs to wear a muzzle this is the best one I've found. I've checked at petstores and those are all tight fighting and low quality.
