*Allows panting, drinking and treat training
*Quick and easy to fit
*An essential item for dogs that chase or may bite
The Mikki Muzzle is a lightweight, comfortable and a safe alternative to the traditional basket muzzle. It will allow your dog to pant, drink and treat train and comes complete with an adjustable strap with easy-fit snap lock. The muzzle also has a collar attachment to prevent your dog from pulling it off.
If your pet is keen on chasing other animals or shows predatory signs, then a muzzle can prevent injury or death. Legally, if the dog bites he MUST be on lead for everyone's safety. A Mikki Multi Lead can be used as a double ended lead, so you can attach to a collar, headcollar or harness and prevent lunging. Alternatively, you can also use a Mikki Recall Training Lead, which allows your dog to exercise without the risk he will rush up to a person or dog and attack.
Allow enough space for you to slide one finger inside the muzzle, around the side of your dog's nose (fig. 1).
This will enable them to pant, drink and for you to give titbits during training sessions. Practise putting the muzzle on, then reward and praise your dog to encourage him to relax (fig. 2). Attach the Velcro loop to your dog's collar for extra security.
When first introducing the muzzle to your dog, only put it on for short periods of time, building up until he is used to it and comfortable with how he feels.
