Great muzzle for the price
Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2018
UPDATE: (Feb 2019) after several months of using this consistently, it has held up very well. Fenrir is now used to it and we can keep it on for about 30-40 mins without him trying to remove it. And hes associated it with being quiet (we usually only use it when he comes across someone that really bothers him and he wont stop barking) so when he sees it, he shuts up. Lol
Straps occasionally need readjustment but nothing major. All straps and hardware are still in great condition. Highly recommend!
I have a ~85lb 3 year old German Shepherd who occasionally barks at random people who he doesnt like. I wanted something that would put people at ease if I choose to take him out but nothing super crazy like a cage muzzle. *I* know he will not bite people, but strangers don't. That being said, I read through a lot of the reviews and noticed many were having issues with the muzzle staying on the dog or getting their dog to keep it on. You need to work with the dog and train a dog who has never had a muzzle to be ok with this new, strange thing being on their face. My dog, Fenrir, hated it at first but after a couple weeks of putting it on in longer increments and taking it off before he gets uncomfortable with it, giving treats and doing basic commands like "come", "sit" and "stay", hes getting more and more comfortable with it. The muzzle is not too tight to where he cannot get it off. He can get it off rather easily, if given the chance, but the point is to train him to be comfortable enough to ignore it being there and leave it on. You can't just put on a muzzle and expect a dog to understand or want it to stay there.
The quality of the muzzle is good. Nylon straps, plastic buckles, metal D-ring for attaching a leash and a padded nose guard. It has withstood the few times Fenrir has pawed at it, without breaking or coming undone and it seems to be comfortable enough for him to keep on for an extended period of time, once he becomes accustomed to it. :)
