Are Muzzles Bad for Dogs?
Muzzles are not bad for your dog. A muzzle can hurt your dog only if you put it on your dog and leave them unattended.
Why? Because your dog would not like the idea of wearing a muzzle. And, they would try to take it off by scratching with their feet. Therefore, they may hurt themselves in the process.
Some quick tips:
- Do not leave your dog unattended when you put a muzzle on.
- Use a muzzle which is of the right size for your dog’s mouth. Please make sure a muzzle does not cause discomfort to your dog.
- Train your dog step-by-step, so he can adjust to wearing a muzzle.
- Seek advise from an expert, dog groomer or a dog trainer.
