Happy Safe Muzzle
Every dog can benefit from muzzle training
Why Muzzle Train?__________
Stress Free Vet Visits
Did you know that your dog may need to be muzzled for veterinary visits/tests/procedures? It is important that they are really comfortable with being muzzled so that they do not experience stress at the vet.
When dogs are in pain, they often don’t know why, and can be snappy. If you dog is already terrified, the last thing you want to do is add to their terror with a new and/or uncomfortable muzzle. If your dog feels comfortable and safe in their muzzle, they won’t feel extra stress when they need it for safety reasons.
Dogs Who Can Be Snappy
If your dog has snapped at people or dogs before, it is very important to seek expert behavior help. For the majority of cases this course will help you fast track muzzle training so you can spend the time you have with your professional focusing on and tackling the tough stuff. There can also be wait time to get into the schedule of a qualified behavior professional, so you can begin this course right away. If you feel unsure or unsafe at any point with muzzle training, wait to proceed until you have consulted with your behavior professional. Even then, the materials in this course will likely compliment your program.
Dogs Who Eat Things on Walks
If your dog eats non-food items voraciously on walks, it is worth consulting with a behavior professional. For some dogs, this is an ongoing challenge, and a muzzle can be very useful for the dog’s safety! If you are waiting to see a behavior professional for this issue, please don’t delay on muzzle training. It could save your dog’s life.
Peace of Mind
Any dog can be unpredictable. If you are about to enter a new chapter in life with your dog, having them muzzle trained so that no unexpected surprises occur can be invaluable. You will be calmer, and in turn, your dog won’t pick up on any reasons from your body language to be concerned in new situations. If your dog has been through a behavior program with a professional, it can be wise to still muzzle them in new situations. Here is a great video clip of a Terrier Academy client about halfway through a program of getting used to her new fence neighbor. ❤️ They are great friends now!
