There may be times when you just have to use a muzzle for the protection of your ME dog. It might be due to them “surfing” outside meaning they want to pick up and eat everything or are selectively choosing things such as dog poop, mulch, etc. Muzzles can help you carefully control what goes in their mouth with some things, but not all.
CRITICAL: NEVER allow your dog out of your sight while it is wearing a muzzle!!!!
Muzzle Up Project:
Muzzle Up! started when Maureen Backman, a dog trainer and business owner in San Francisco CA, wanted to change the stigma trainers and dog owners face when they put a muzzle on their dog. Through partnering with local businesses, rescues and trainers, not only in San Francisco but across the globe, Muzzle Up! aims to educate the public about dog behavior, safety, and why we don’t need to fear muzzles.
