There are many reasons dogs need to wear a muzzle. To protect them from their own actions, when they eat things when they are out, aren’t keen on the vet, don’t like other dogs, or are scared around strangers. Or to follow government legislation which dictates that their breed should wear a muzzle when out. Whatever the reason, we know the main aim is to keep the dog safe.

Many dogs can be resistant to wearing a muzzle which will result in them trying to escape its confines at every opportunity. Many are fearful of the muzzle, so can become overwhelmed when it is used. With either reaction, muzzle use can be a huge stress for you and your dog.

For this reason, we believe it is extremely important to muzzle-train dogs using positive reinforcement methods and a gradual process, going at a pace the dog is comfortable with.

Dogs should not be scared of wearing their muzzle, and those who have to wear one on a walk should be as excited to see the muzzle as they are when they see their lead coming out.

In this session, our experienced dog trainers will talk you through the stages of muzzle training and explain why each stage is so important. This will be followed by a question and answer session for you to ask any questions which were not already answered.
