Hearing protection for dogs

Post by Basin_Runner355 »

I got me a lab and I got a good bit of time and money in him and don't want him to go deaf anytime soon. I have the mutt muffs for him but they don't stay on his head at all.they stay on for like 5 min and come off what do y'all
Use for y'all prize labs.

He'll cut your throat, baby, stick you in the back, drive off in your Cadillac.
He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

I have a lab mix puppy and initially had trouble with the muffs staying on. Now that he's used to them, I was able to work with the straps and got them to fit much better. The main problem we had was his skull is tapered towards the back and the muffs would slide off. Of course, him shaking his head didn't help.

I have a German Wirehaired Pointer. I bought him medium sized muffs on Amazon. They fit well and he seems to enjoy them. At first I was concerned because his ear flaps did not fit in side the muffs, but the manufacturer said that the flaps help hold the sound out.

I also got a set of doggles for him. His eyes are important also.

Do whatever it takes to keep them on!

Many years ago when I was much younger/more stupid, neither I nor an Aussie that was our "once in a lifetime dog," wore ear muffs when airboating. He deserved better.

The dog was deaf as a post in his old age, and my ears have been ringing for the last 25+ years.

Ear protection is a MUST when airboating or shooting at the range!
