As a loving dog owner, you probably think your pooch is the bee’s knees, the #1 Doggo, the best pet on the planet or any other number of awesome, sweet and loving descriptions. Chances are that you’re correct and your dog is loving, well-behaved and has the best doggy and people manners (especially if you read our regular training articles). Given all this, it can be difficult for some owners to reconcile that there may come a time when your dog may need to wear a muzzle.
Muzzles have gotten a bad rap from TV, pop culture, and other references to rabid, vicious animals that can’t be contained. The truth of the matter is that these helpful safety devices can protect both your pooch and yourself in many everyday scenarios. It only makes sense, then, that you train your dog to accept a muzzle or other head and mouth restraints, as part of their core doggy training.
