The results are heartwarming and beautiful. Imagine a fearful dog gaining confidence and weaving around agility poles while wearing a muzzle. Or a shy dog running toward the muzzle from across the room in order to place her snout in the basket, eagerly anticipating her reward. These aren’t just pipe dreams; training makes them possible for dogs of varied breeds, backgrounds and temperaments.
Dogs may need to be muzzled for a variety of reasons
Soft, anti-irritant fabrics wrapped around the basket portion of the muzzle, the straps, or both are a great way to prevent your dog’s skin from becoming irritated from rubbing against the muzzle.

Several types of muzzles are currently available for dogs, and many dog owners find there is a need for a muzzle at one time or another. The length of time a dog can wear a muzzle depends on both the muzzle and the dog. You first need to select the correct muzzle for your dog and the situation. You then need to train your dog to accept the muzzle, and observe the dog with the muzzle on before deciding the best maximum length of time your dog should wear it.A dog sometimes requires a muzzle when she eats or chews inappropriate items, such as rocks, sticks or feces. Some trainers use muzzles during training exercises for police and protection dogs. Finally, dogs that are aggressive may need a muzzle when out on a walk or at the dog park to prevent them from harming other dogs or people. Determining the situations in which your dog needs a muzzle for is the first step of choosing the correct muzzle for your dog.You might find your dog needs a muzzle for several reasons. During a veterinary exam or while being groomed, a muzzle ensures that your dog can't interfere with the procedure or behave aggressively towards the people handling him. Many dogs experience fear at the vet or groomer and in some cases this can lead to aggression, even in dogs that are not normally aggressive. Dogs can use muzzles to prevent them from biting and licking an injured area, as an alternative to the "Elizabethan Collar" commonly supplied by vets. A muzzle can be more comfortable and will be less in the way than the traditional collar.Wire and plastic basket muzzles are among the most secure muzzles for dogs that have biting problems. They resemble a baseball catcher's mask in their design, creating a cage around the dog's mouth. Inside this "cage," the dog can easily open and close its mouth, allowing him to pant. He can also drink by inserting the cage into water. Wire baskets allow the dog to eat, but food must be fed through the openings in the cage to reach the dog's mouth. Plastic basket muzzles function in much the same way, but instead of wire, the cage surrounding the dog's mouth is made of strong plastic that contains holes.
