Muzzles are used to reduce the risk a dog poses to people and other animals by restricting the dogs ability to bite. They are commonly used by veterinarians and animal care staff concerned with handling or treating frightened, injured or distressed dogs, as well as anyone managing - or introducing - dogs that may be aggressive to people or other animals. Some municipal bylaws or provincial legislation, such as Ontarios Dog Owners Liability Act, may require your dog to be muzzled when off your property, or on your property in an unsecured area.

Below are some tips to help guide you as you select a muzzle and present it to your pet. How you introduce a muzzle to your dog can have a significant impact on how quickly he is able to accept wearing it calmly. If your dog is already struggling with wearing a muzzle try incorporating some of the training pointers to help him learn to adjust.

What type of muzzle should I buy for my dog?
It is important to purchase a muzzle that allows for normal breathing, panting and drinking. Basket style muzzles, such as the one pictured below, are recommended by the Ontario SPCA because they allow your pet to be comfortable during regular outdoor activity - however, no muzzle should be worn for a long period of time. The Ontario SPCA does not regard alternative styles of muzzles as appropriate because they restrict the dogs ability to pant, trapping heat inside the dogs body, and prevent the dog from being able to drink water - increasing the dogs vulnerability to overheating and heatstroke.
