1) Measure around the dog's snout, just below the eyes. This is the circumference.
2) Measure the length of the dog's snout from the end of the nose to just below the eyes. This is the length.
3) Find the closest measurements in the chart above. It's better to size a muzzle a bit small than to size one too large. A muzzle that is too big will interfere with your dog's vision, and can be pulled off by the dog.
