Muzzles are a valuable tool for keeping pets and people safe. Unfortunately, muzzles seem to have gotten a bad reputation, and many people think they are only used for dangerous dogs. But this is not the case at all! There are so many positive ways muzzles can be used, but the most important step is that the dog using them needs to be properly trained to do so. Muzzles are a great way to protect pets and humans during uncomfortable situations like nail trims or veterinary procedures. But they can also be used for dogs on off-leash walks to prevent them from eating things they shouldn’t. Muzzles can also be used to prevent dogs from licking or chewing at incisions, or wounds. Most importantly, they can be used for nervous or anxious dogs that can be unpredictably aggressive, especially during early stages of training. Selecting the correct type and proper fit will help dogs feel comfortable and be more accepting of their muzzle.
