Do you want a muzzle that's light as a feather?  Your dog sure does!

Imported from Ireland, these plastic coursing/racing dog muzzles are light and sturdy.   Weighs a feather-light 3 ounces, so light your dog will forget he's wearing it!

All our coursing basket muzzles are made of one piece nylon and have rivets only on the sides. They are very smooth on the inside with no rough edges.

  • Single Piece Nylon Construction
  • Double leather straps (under chin and behind head)
  • Rivets only on the sides, and smoothed inside
  • Adjustable to fit any size greyhound, galgo or breed with similar size and head shape
  • Light and comfortable to wear
  • Extra close spacing between the plastic "bars" around the mouth are ideal protection for dogs who are fussy about who approaches them while still providing perfect air flow
  • Top edge of muzzle starts slightly further down the nose compared to American style muzzles, so it doesn't jam into the dog's eyes when lying down

Materials

These muzzles are made from a single piece of nylon plastic, folded around and riveted together on the sides. The straps are made from veg-tanned leather.

Sizing

Our Double Padded muzzle is popular with non-greyhound active breeds like shepherds doing herding trials!  If your dog isn't a greyhound, gauge proper fit by measuring your dog as shown in the Measuring Guide.  This muzzle will fit dogs in these size ranges:

  • Nose Length: 9 - 11 inches
  • Head Size:  9 - 12 inches
  • Muzzle Diameter:  up to 12 inches

If your dog has Nose Length 11 - 17 inches or a Head Size 12 - 23 inches, then this muzzle will fit with a custom-made strap.  Add the Muzzle Repair/Replacement Service to your cart along with the muzzle.  Muzzle Diameters over 12 inches should not use this muzzle as your dog must be able to open his mouth to pant and yawn.

Care information

The plastic basket may be cleaned with warm, soapy water, being careful not to get the leather components wet. If the leather does get wet (because some dogs like to play in the rain, too!), let it dry and then treat with a non-toxic leather conditioner.

Sharon's Thoughts

I love this muzzle also and think it undeservedly gets overshadowed by the popularity of the double-padded muzzles. This one may not have all the features, but it's seriously so light it almost floats away. It's also slightly larger, and is made from softer, more flexible plastic, which makes it easier to tolerate for dogs who hate having things on their faces. If I couldn't have the double-padded muzzle, I would totally use this one for my pups.
