The inner foam that we use is the exact same ester resin foam that is used in many high end commercial head sets designed for humans. Based on the materials used, the estimated decibel reduction is between 21 and 24, assuming proper fit and a good seal against your pup's head. That's 21-24 dB reduction in the human hearing range of 20,000 cycles per second, which is the only range that we have data for. Our canine friends can hear much higher frequencies (in the range of 43,000 cycles per second). As the frequency goes up, so does the effectiveness of Mutt Muffs, simply because the higher the frequency is, the more easily it is absorbed. Therefore, Mutt Muffs are especially effective at protecting against the high frequency wind whistles and shrieks we humans cannot even hear.
There is another factor that comes into play as well. The dog's own ear flaps are down and covering the ear canal, providing yet another layer of protection, better even than placing your hands over your own ears.
Mutt Muffs are designed not to block out all sound, but to be a passive, noise reducing device that will make a ride in the airplane a comfortable experience for your mutt.
I have a Golden Retreiver year and a half old, bought the extra large and they fit great. He wore them the whole flight with no problem. Many more to go. Wish I could get noise canceling.
MUTT MUFFS X-LARGE
We have a 20 lbs Tibetan Terrier. This worked perfectly. He accepted them right away and doesn’t knock them off. They’ve stayed on nicely for 45-75 minute flights so far, and appear to work well. Our dog seems content and rests easily with them on. Perfect.
MUTT MUFFS SMALL
fit the pup fine, was actually able to use these on the 4th as my do is not a fan of large explosions. seemed to help.
I bought these for my border collie who is afraid of most loud noises. He tolerates them well and seems to get some relief from the anxiety. He can still hear the noise, just not as much. I am pleased with the mutt muffs because they fit well and seem comfortable.
The headphones arrived fast. Very well made and they look adorable on my furbaby. Unfortunately they don’t help with the constant loud boom of The never ending fireworks and or other explosions going on here in a Philadelphia. I will unfortunately have to return them. Vet prescribed a sedative hopefully it will work as the holiday weekend is coming up.
Fix is good. Easy to adjust and put on the dog. When we tested them at home, she had them off in seconds, But, in the plane she happily leaves them in place. From that, I take it that they work and she appreciates them.
I use the mutt muffs when I velocity dry my 5 dogs after a bath. I have No issue with the dogs taking them off!
Fits my dog perfectly. I was worried she might not cooperate with this but no problem. They appear well made.
My dog doesnt seem to mind them at all. He doesnt try to take them off, and he cant seem to hear much when theyre on. He didnt mind flying in the plane without ear protection (he just slept the whole time) but I figured adding some hearing protection would be best for him.
We got XS for our 7 pound mutt (a mix of who knows what hes actually such a dorky looking dog that hes cute). Anyway, they fit very well on him. He did paw at them initially, but now hes happy to wear them and sits obediently while I put them on him and seems to be happy with them on for long trips.

Probably best to go with the smaller size as it is essential that there be a tight seal to gain the noise reduction benefits. "If you choose a size too large, the muffs won't seal well against his head, and you lose all the sound-reducing properties you were shooting for."
Yes, the outside of the Mutt Muffs are black.
These will reduce the noise the dog hears. However, we have no data or testing which shows how effective they are for eliminating firework noise. They were intended to reduce the sounds of the airplane engine for dogs.
Yes, we accept returns on product that can be resold as new within 30 days of receipt. Please try them and if they do not work, return them before use. If the product appears used or damaged, a return may not be accepted.
They should work for blocking the noise but they may be slightly uncomfortable for the dog if they have very pointy ears.
These Mutt Muffs are black.
Yes, they may not be great for dogs with pointy ears. They are better for dogs with floppy ears.
These will provide hearing protection in any environment, however, the amount of noise reduction varies by fit on the animal and it will not provide total quiet.
At this time, there are no canine headsets available or Bluetooth mutt muffs.
Most likely Large size but each dog is different so we cannot guarantee fit.
