The ends should be big enough so that it is flush with the end of your dog’s nose. This will prevent your dog from bumping his nose when retrieving it.
The bar length should be short enough so that your dog cannot throw it to the back of their mouth. This will help prevent chewing. One way to measure bit length is to place a dowel in your dog’s mouth just behind the canines and mark on either side where your dog’s lips touch the dowel. Measure between the lines.
The bar diameter should be small enough so that your dog’s mouth can close comfortably, but large enough that it will not spin when your dog picks it up.
