The Austrian company BUMAS produces high-quality, friendly-looking, colorful Biothane dog muzzles and is currently expanding to the US market with a Kickstarter campaign. It's the only animal welfare and humane-certified canine muzzle on the market, vegan, mould resistant, soft and lightweight on the snout and custom-made for the dog's individual needs.
BUMAS has been established in the Austrian and German market for over two years, with over 10,000 muzzles sold. Like car manufacturers and other high-end retailers Bumas offers an online configurator to design your own dog muzzle and preview its appearance before ordering. Since the canine muzzles have become very popular, BUMAS' next step is expanding its European territory and entering the U.S. market as www.bumas.us.
Our muzzles were developed by co-founder and force free dog trainer Verena Lanner. One of their great features-important for the dog's health and safety--is that the dog is still able to breathe and pant comfortably, receive treats, and drink while wearing a custom fit muzzle. At the same time, the humane muzzle prevents the dog from eating undesirable food or poison off the streets. Also, dog owners use them as a replacement for The Cone of Shame, for vet visits or in other stressful situations.
Soon BUMAS' friendly and colorful muzzles will be available at better pet stores, vet clinics, or through your dog trainer. As more dog professionals become aware of BUMAS they are advocating for our muzzles. San Francisco-based initiative, The MuzzleUp! Project has recently partnered with BUMAS. Maureen Backman, founder of The Muzzle Up! Project says: "I have never endorsed a product or company before, but I am very proud to support BUMAS and BUMAS USA because of the company’s high standards and their commitment to comfortable and humane muzzles."
