Protect Their Hearing!
Noise can be dangerous. If it is rather strong and lasts a long time it can damage the hearing of your dog. Imagine how uncomfortable the noise that your dog is exposed to when they fly with you has to be.
Most often reported as the owner's first observation is that during the flight the dog used to sleep, but when wearing Mutt Muffs they seem to be really enjoying the flight and are looking out the window with interest. There is a very good reason for this: your dog was uncomfortable before and that is why they seemed to be asleep; trying to escape into their own little world.
"My dog will never go for having something strapped to their head!" you exclaim. We hear this all the time. Most people are very surprised to see how the dog adjusts so quickly. Most dogs do the math and figure out that they are better off with the Mutt Muffs on their head as opposed to off their head.
When correctly adjusted they will not fall off with vibration. A well-directed paw or human hand is really the only way to take them off.
Can I return it? Sure, no questions asked, but the Muffs must be unchewed and in good condition.
Want to know how to train your dog to wear them? Here are the directions from the creator:
Believe it or not, the best way to acclimate the dog (in most cases) is to muff him up and blast off. It's pretty well guaranteed the dog will get them off, but that's the empirical evidence for the dog that life is way better with them on. Usually that's the one and only time he will take them off in the plane.

One important measurement is the width of your dog's ear at the top of his head (red dashed line in the picture).
The overall circumference of your dog's head at the largest point is also a good determination of size. Why, you ask? Because if you choose a size too large, the muffs won't seal well against his head. If this happens you will lose all the sound-reducing properties that the Muffs have to offer.
When in doubt your dog's weight is also a good indicator of which size to choose. No matter what, if you order the wrong size we can always exchange them for the correct size, just let us know and we will take care of it. No hassles!
Overall Rating for Mutt Muffs DDR337 Hearing Protection for Dogs - Black
|(based on 2 reviews)| After watching an Alaskan program on flying, I noticed the dogs on the planes were wearing ear muffs. No one in Australia sold mutt muffs so I managed to find Skygeek.com and purchased a pair for my young golden retriever who flies weekly. We had no hassles with him wearing them, as soon as has them put on, he goes into his sleep position and awaits his arrival to our farm property. Thanks you for your prompt service, highly recommend Skygeek.com

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Hi, My Golden Retriever, Salty, loves her muffs. Put them on the first time last year and she loved them from the beginning. I fly a lot of Angel Flights and many of my patient fliers ask for Salty to come along on the flights. She always wears her muffs along with her life vest on the over water flights.
Mutt Muffs Rule!

How do you think these will work for dogs with pointy ears, like a Corgi?
By Customer Service on October 13, 2014
Answer:Here is what our contact had to say:
"As long as the ears have not been cropped (like some Dobermans), erect ears should be folded down. The muffs are pretty deep, so there’s some room in there. One other caveat… I would not use mutt muffs on puppies with erect ears. That cartilage needs time to form correctly. "
In addition, our contact was nice enough to supply us with a pic of a corgi:
