    Hello all,

    Any recommendations for a muzzle? I am going to acclimate and train my dog to use a muzzle in case of an emergency.

    Henry, Robert has several videos related to muzzle training, plus recommended products on the “Shop” section. I didn’t find any of the videos when I did a search on “Lessons”, but you can find them by going to YouTube and doing a search on “Robert Cabral Muzzle”.

    Hi Henry. The “emergency” muzzle I use is the Baskerville Ultra. I prefer it for fit, and canine comfort. Proper sizing is crucial. Familiarization went smoothly in small steps and the same for duration. Associating the muzzle with “positives” made it just another piece of equipment. I couldn’t recall the brand name of it – went to get it and my GSD sat for me to put it on. Whatever brand you opt for, proper introduction and reward will make it a non-aversive addition to your equipment should the need ever arise. Kudos for training before the need arises and hoping it never does.

    baskerville muzzles are good, but I prefer the Jafco muzzles!
