Dog Muzzles & Head Collars
Keep your dog from barking or biting with high-quality dog muzzles from Chewy. Muzzles can be used by pet parents for a variety of reasons, but the most common is to prevent biting. Muzzles come in multiple varieties, but choosing the best dog muzzle is determined by your canine’s behavior. A nylon muzzle is a good dog muzzle for biting, because it keeps a canine’s mouth almost completely shut. The restrictive design keeps pups from panting, so they should not be used in hot weather or for long periods of time. The basket muzzle allows a dog to open and close his mouth.
Muzzles are used to prevent dogs from snapping during pet manicures, cleanings or vaccinations. A muzzle might be necessary for the sensitive pup who bites during visits to the groomer or veterinarian. Muzzles can also be used during training sessions to help modify bad behaviors. While muzzling your dog may seem harsh, there are circumstances where it becomes necessary. For example, it may be necessary to muzzle your dog while in the rehabilitation process. If stressful situations cause your dog to bite, a muzzle for dogs may be necessary when he’s introduced to new environments or multiple people. Muzzles should be used for brief periods of time, up to twenty minutes, depending on the temperature and level of activity.
