    Question In need of Muzzle and Harness suggestions

    Hi all,

    Mr. Brink had a vet appt today and he went nuts after the vet did a dry eye test and then booty squeeze ontop of the reason we actully went to check his feet -.- long story short he is required to have a muzzle now for visits and I figured if ask if anyone has suggestions since it's harder to fit a smush face. It can be open or closed front he doesn't have any issues other than letting vets know he doesn't like things with his mouth.

    Also looking for any step in harness ideas (bonus if it has a handle) so we can control and hold our 67lb baby better when he is uncomfortable since that's the only tI'm he isn't just a snoring pile of mush that let's you do whatever to him.

    We had a basket muzzle for our American Bulldog when she started attacking our cats, although she never actually hurt them. Her nose was a bit longer but I would think it would work for an EB. Just as an example.....English Bulldog 13"-3" Leather Basket Dog Muzzle Boxer American Bulldog 2 colors | eBay

    Note to add, we later found out our AB had a brain tumor and she soon after started having seizures, poor girl. Not her fault.

    Hi, I don't have any experience with muzzles, so can't recommend one, but we use the K9 Julius Harnesses, and they have a handle. They are easy to put on with Velcro are light weight. You can order them on line from the K9 Julius website, or from Amazon.

    we love our Julius Harnesses, and I know others on here also have them and love them. They are really lightweight, about 2 lbs, they are really easy to put on and take off, and they are super comfortable on the chest. They have a handle for better handling, especially when they jump up, or you want more control, and they are not bulky at all. They wipe clean, and the Velcro name tags can be customized to anything you want. These are the harnesses that the police and the military use on their training dogs.

    Wanted to add, the basket muzzle we had was plastic, much lighter that the leather.

    I was looking at the K9 Julius so I'm so glad it got mentioned I am going to give it a try.

    I'm totally intimidated by the leather studed muzzles, they make them look so mean =( he's a cuddle monster.

    I can't seem to find a plastic cage one or even just a less biker one lol

    *Update*

    Just incase anyone else needs some ideas. We did end up with a Julius K9 IDC Powerharness in a size 1, Brink is usually between 60 and 70 pounds and his chest measures about 33 inches, it fit's very well and there is room to grow or make smaller as needed.

    As for the muzzle we went with Canine Friendly Short Snout Dog Muzzle in Xlarge which was a perfect fit for mister no nose bridge. He doesn't seem to mind it and has been less growly and nippy during things that normally anger the big boy. He actually has been pretty calm when he has to wear it which has made nail care SOOO much better.
