How to Train a Dog to a Dog Muzzle?
The training of a dog to a muzzle.
The puppies of large breeds are trained
since they are 5 months. A muzzle is chosen according to the size of a
puppies head. A blind muzzle, made of a solid piece of leather with
holes for air, is supposed to be the most comfortable. A puppy should
smell a muzzle before wearing. Put some delicacy in a muzzle and put it
on a puppy. Then they take it off after 2-3 minutes and give the
delicacy to a puppy and flatter it. Repeating this approach every day,
the time of wearing of a muzzle by a puppy should be gradually
prolonged. If it is made every time before walking, a puppy is not very
depressed with the procedure of putting on of the muzzle and it gets
used to it soon. While a puppy grows, a muzzle should be changed several
times. Try to put it on in such a place, where a puppy has no chance to
hide. Does your dog perform the orders? For example, call it to a
kitchen and order “sit”. Put it before feeding for a minute or two and
let it know that a muzzle is uncomfortable, but it is not for long and
there is something good waiting after. At first a muzzle can be a little
loose-fitting in the order to make it possible for a dog to half-open a
mouth and take a delicacy.
Put a muzzle on with a delicacy in your hand, then praise your dog, at once draw it away with a play, pat it, flatter, ask a couple of orders (showing delicacy in your hand) and take a muzzle off sitting a dog . It is better if you do not give a chance to a dog to take off a muzzle itself. Let it know that it is only you who takes a muzzle off and only for a good behavior, no matter what does the dog do good.
