Muzzle Training Fail: any Tips?
We’ve been muzzle training our 1 y/o Mal to get him acclimated to the device. He needs to see a vet soon and didn’t do great last time around.
On day one I moved too soon and he got mad. Next day I resumed training and this is what happened.
Peanut butter swiped on the inside worked well for several mini-sessions throughout the next 3 days. Then he had enough. He was doing well licking the PB, so I gently put the top strap over his head. That’s when he let loose and tried to bite me through the muzzle. I immediately dropped it and walked away.
At what point is it best to resume training, and how can we do it but still protect ourselves during the process?
Thanks for any insight!
