When are Muzzles for Dogs Useful?
There are all kinds of situations when a pup might be scared, anxious or nervous and using dog muzzles can avoid any disasters with biting, nipping or chewing.
Muzzles for dogs are safe, gentle and practical, and ideal for dogs struggling with aggression, that suffer from anxiety issues, or tend to bite out of fear if they have any phobias (particularly the vet!).
Some dogs simply don't like socialising, and while they can be loving and gentle pets at home, if you have any worry about biting, then using muzzles for dogs alleviates the stress of managing unpredictable behaviour.
Small muzzles for dogs are also ideal if you are experiencing something new and don't want the concern of not knowing how your pup will react. This includes visits to the countryside where they might encounter new animals, or perhaps that visit to your friends who has the tempting little guinea pigs running around!
Are Dog Muzzles Unkind?
A common misconception is that muzzling a dog is unkind. Still, it can be the safest and easiest way to deal with unwanted behaviour and protects your dog from getting injured or upset in an aggressive encounter.
The Baskerville Ultra Muzzle is an excellent choice in dog muzzles, made from a super-light rubber, so it feels weightless and unrestrictive. With a simple clip connection, you can slip your Baskerville muzzles on and off with ease, and your pup is free to drink, eat treats and pant without any hindrance.
