Greyhound, Lurcher And Whippet Muzzle
It is not a legal requirement for a greyhound to wear a muzzle in public, but it is good practice. Greyhounds really do not mind wearing a muzzle and it shows you are a responsible owner. Until you fully understand your dog and how they interact with other animals, your dog should ALWAYS be muzzled. You can read more about using muzzle on our Love Your Muzzle page
The greyhound lurcher and whippet muzzles are only available in 3 sizes.
The sizes are:
Greyhound: approximately 9.5″ (240mm) from the tip of the nose to behind the ears. This muzzle has the leather around the nose and is open for drinking water. The greyhound muzzles are the style photographed without a doggie model – or the brindle in the main picture, and the black greyhound lying down with a pink muzzle.
Lurcher Don Pare 107 : approximately 220mm from tip of the nose to behind the ears. This muzzle is softer plastic so does not need the leather band. It is more closed around the mouth area but the dog can still drink through it.
Whippet/small lurcher: approx 7.75″ (197mm) from the tip of nose to behind the ears. This muzzle is softer plastic so does not need the leather band. It is more closed around the mouth area but the dog can still drink through it. The muzzles on the black lurcher in the pink harness (both he blue and the white) and the white lurcher with the red muzzle – are lurcher muzzles.
The greyhound and lurcher muzzles are essential if you have a cat and are about to adopt a greyhound – see more information cat and dog about training.
