Training your dog to wear a muzzle can be a helpful exercise for all pet dogs, muzzles can be used for many reasons; safety (if your dog has displayed aggressive tendencies towards other animals or people), prevention of scavenging during walks, whilst at the vets or groomers or when introducing to new pets. Muzzles should be comfortable for your dog to wear and allow him to pant and drink especially if being used during exercise.

Time should be taken to teach your dog acceptance of the muzzle so he is happy and relaxed about wearing it. Read our Muzzle Training Guide for lots of helpful ideas on how to do this.
