Dog School Manchester Getting our dogs used to a variety of equipment is super important, as you never know when we may need to use novel equipment. Muzzles can be super handy to help keep our dogs safe. Dogs may be wearing a muzzle for a number of reasons: 🌟 To prevent them eating things they shouldn't and ending up in the vets. 🌟 Anxiety around other dogs and people and the muzzle helps the dog to feel safer. 🌟 Creates a bubble of space for the dog. A muzzle does not always mean: 🛑 The dog is vicious and will attack you. 🛑The dog should not be allowed to enjoy nice walks with their owner. 🛑That you can stroke the dog without asking. #training #reinforcement #muzzletraining #dogsofinstagram #Manchester #tameside #stockport #offerton #cheadle #rottweiler #dogtrainingnorthwest #dogtrainingManchester
