In the world of dog behavior, one of the most essential pieces of safety equipment we have is the muzzle. Unfortunately, their appearance and the judgments associated with them prevent their usage, sometimes with tragic consequences. Dogs wear muzzles for a plethora of reasons.
In this DVD, learn why dogs wear muzzles, how to properly muzzle train a dog, incorporating enrichment activities into the muzzle training plan, and strategies to educate clients and the public on muzzle safety.
