We guarantee that our muzzle will fit your dog in any case. With our experience, we can easily tell if your dog’s readings are plausible. If we have the impression that the measured values do not seem to be correct, we will contact you by mail and clarify the measurement with you.
If you are sure that you have measured correctly and do not respond to our email within 3 days, we will produce your Limuzz according to your specifications. In this case, the warranty of fit expires.
If you are unsure, you are welcome to contact us before ordering.(firstname.lastname@example.org)
Limuzz is custom made for each order and also fits perfectly only the dog that has been measured. Therefore, if a Limuzz does not fit, we unfortunately cannot take it back. However, we check each order when it is received whether the measured values can be correct. If we have the feeling that the values do not fit we will contact you and adjust the values. This way we can make sure your LiMUZZ fits.
Limuzz is not a biting basket. Our goal was never to develop a bite basket. If something like this is necessary for socially incompatible dogs, we recommend a wire bite guard so as not to put your own dog, other dogs or even people in danger in the worst case.
Our muzzle was developed from 2 basic considerations:
- As an everyday muzzle for dogs that simply must wear a muzzle on different occasions: public transportation, public buildings, cities, etc.
- As protection for the dog from unwanted eating of everything that the dog owner just wants to prevent. This is especially about poison bait, which is always put out by impossible people.
Limuzz was developed together with the IPPE Research Institute at the University of Linz, where it was tested for all possible forces that can act on a muzzle. Your muzzle can withstand a lot and is still very flexible. BASIC variant is the most flexible solution due to its shape and is ideal as an everyday muzzle. In the PRO version (PRO = Protection), the muzzle as a whole is stronger, because the incorporated feeding protection also strengthens the structure of the muzzle.
YES. Dogs who have always had trouble finding a muzzle for their little noses have a wonderful workable muzzle solution for the first time with Limuzz.
The Limuzz PRO and Limuzz BASIC models have been certified as compliant with animal welfare standards by the Fachstelle für tiergerechte Tierhaltung und Tierschutz. You can find more information here.
We have spent over a year studying dog head anatomy very intensively, measuring countless dog breeds using 3D scanners and obtaining opinions from veterinarians. Based on these data, we were able to develop a mathematical model that is the same across breeds for nearly all dog breeds. That is why it is possible for us to make a super accurate fitting muzzle with only 3 data.
Limuzz is extremely light and fits very precisely. This makes it easy for the dog to accept the muzzle.Also in tests with our ownDogs we have made consistently positive experiences with the acceptance of the muzzle. The dogs quickly get used to it, and even the longer-term wearing was very well accepted by all dogs. Therefore, we assume that it is quite comfortable for the dogs. However, we did not receive any concrete answers to our question.
For people who like to be active with their dog, possibly do dog sports, or simply have a very active dog but want it to wear a muzzle, the outdoor version is intended. This one is a little more stable and solid.
Limuzz is impact resistant, tensile, flexible and harmless if swallowed. It has a surface that feels like soft rubber and does not squeeze or chafe the dog. The material is waterproof and can be easily washed with cold water after use. An occasional wash in the dishwasher will not harm your Limuzz.
We chose 3D printing because it gives us complete freedom in the design and shape of the Limuzz, and we don’t have to think about one-size-fits-all and industrial production methods for new designs in the future. Limuzz is also intended to benefit dogs around the world. With 3D printing, we have the opportunity to keep the added value in the respective country and ensure short distances from our production to the customer.
Yes – We also offer a perfectly fitting solution for Frenchis, Pugs, etc. in our store. Again, each muzzle is made individually for your dog.
Your Limuzz is 100% made in Austria. We rely on Austrian quality and cooperate with regional partners. This makes processing easier for us and saves long transport routes.
Limuzz – pronounced “Leimas” – comes from English and is a fusion of the two English words “light” and “muzzle”. Limuzz is made of a very strong but at the same time lightweight material. That is why our muzzles are up to 2/3 lighter compared to other products on the market and therefore comfortable for the dog to wear.
The most important thing about a muzzle is the fit. The better the fit, the easier and faster the dog will accept the muzzle. A muzzle should fit exactly that it can not be stripped by the dog. However, it should not hinder the dog’s behavior. The muzzle must be deep enough to allow the dog to pant. If the dog cannot pant, it cannot regulate its body temperature. Muzzles that are too small are therefore a burden for dogs.
Muzzle is the only choice in this case. Muzzles are not muzzles and are considered cruelty to animals if worn continuously. They prevent panting and thus the adequate regulation of body temperature. Mouth loops are at most an option for short use at the vet. They are unsuitable for all other applications.
There are measurement instructions from each manufacturer on how to measure a muzzle. We at Limuzz have studied the anatomy of the dog’s head long and hard. For our muzzle we need the exact measurements of the dog’s nose, always measured at the base of the nose (stop). No additions, no estimates, no measurements from the desired muzzle, no balls in the mouth when measuring. We know how the dog’s head is created and fit the muzzle perfectly to your dog. You can find our measuring instructions here.
With Limuzz there is no fixed muzzle size. Other manufacturers think in terms of XS, S, M, L,… We fit each muzzle to your dog so that it has enough room to pant and not have the muzzle come off. With one measurement, you have finished the muzzle search.
Every dog should be accustomed to a muzzle. It may happen that you get into a situation with your dog where the muzzle is mandatory. A muzzle with food protection protects your dog from poison baits, or unwanted food intake. Of course, many dogs do not need a muzzle permanently. If it must be then however, the muzzle is to be trained. The muzzle must be comfortable to wear the dog.
NO! A muzzle must be deep enough for the dog to pant. Thus, he can open his catch and bark. Barking is your dog’s way of communicating. This should be possible with a muzzle. If only for the reason that conspecifics can adjust to your dog.
Muzzles with feeding protection such as the Limuzz PRO reliably protect against the ingestion of unwanted food. Whether it’s poison bait or disgusting other things.
YES! The Limuzz NoNose is specially designed for dogs with very short nose. It does not sit on the nose but is attached to the head circumference. The dog has no restrictions and the nose remains free. The muzzle is shaped so that it does not touch the nose. the dog is not restricted in breathing and nothing rests on the sensitive nose.
