Measuring Instructions BUMAS

Within 3 steps to the perfect muzzle

You will need: a soft measuring tape, paper clips, pen & paper and some treats for your patient dog

1. Measure the closed mouth circumference

Loop the measuring tape around the dog's snout and fix it with the paperclip. Make sure you left enough room to the eyes, please measure where the BUMAS muzzle will lie down later, as shown in the graphic below.

The measuring tape should run downwards vertically, from the bridge of the nose to the lips, it shouldn’t slope towards the throat or the nose peak. The measuring tape also shouldn’t squeeze the lips or have too much slack.

Please note the snout circumference preferably in centimeters, do NOT add anything extra, the room for panting will be queried later!

If possible, please take a photo of the side profile of the whole dog's head, so that we can read the numbers (your measured snout circumference) on the measuring tape.

2. Measure the snout length

Long snout: Place the measuring tape in front of the corners of the eyes on the bridge of the nose, where the BUMAS muzzle will lie down later and measure to the outermost point of the nose peak.

ATTENTION: Please make sure that the measuring tape is not set too close to the eyes, but in front of the eyes, as shown in the graphic below.

Write down your measurement, don't add anything extra!

Please note the snout length preferably in centimeters, do NOT add anything extra! If possible, please make a photo of vertically straight above the snout, so that we can read the numbers (your measured snout length) on the measuring tape.


Short snout, underbite or overbite: Place the measuring tape SIDELY in front of the corner of the eye, where the BUMAS muzzle will lie down later. Measure to the extreme point of the lips or nose peak, depending on what’s longer on your dog.

ATTENTION: Please make sure the measuring tape is not set too close to the eye, but in front of the eye, as shown in the graphic below.

Please note the snout length preferably in centimeters, do NOT add anything extra! If possible, please take a photo of the side profile of the whole dog's head, so that we can read the numbers (your measured nose length) on the measuring tape.

3. Enter the measured values

Please choose your favourite colour combination and select the options to fit your dog´s body structure and suit his or her personality. Enter the measured values (do NOT add anything extra) into the BUMAS online configurator.



What are the next steps?

Only after completely finished order (which is after payment), we will send you the so called „pant control" within 24 hours by e-mail. This e-mail must be answered, because your dog, of course, should have enough space for panting and drinking when wearing the BUMAS muzzle.

Based on your information and measurements, we are going to send you a non-binding suggestion for the inner size of your BUMAS muzzle and a simple guide on how to do the pant control on your dog. Please follow the instructions and answer with your result.

Important: Only after your reply, your individual BUMAS muzzle will be produced. If we have any further questions, we will of course contact you before reliably.


Feeling unsure about your measurements? To be on the safe side, upload your dog's measuring photos (at the end of the configuration process).  



Your dog does not like the measuring tape and is not cooperative in measuring? We have a few tips to get your dog positively used to the measuring tape.
