Below we outline the basics of getting your dog used to wearing a muzzle.
Introducing your dog to the muzzle
Like any new accessory your dog will wear, it’s very important to take the time and introduce your dog properly to the muzzle. This will get them familiar with it before trying to put it on the first time.
Sight & Smell
First, let your dog sniff the muzzle. This let them get used to its smell and you should reinforce their interest in it by using treats and giving them lots of praise.

However, you shouldn’t just simply slip on your running shoes and grab the dog when you’re going out the door. It is important to have a basic understanding of how to jog with your dog safely and responsibly.

Making sure you have the perfect harness for your pet can take some time to research. So once you’ve decided on a suitable harness for your dog it’s important to make sure it’s the right size and is adjusted correctly.
An incorrectly fitted harness can do a lot more harm than good, and getting it fitted properly will help keep your dog safe, comfortable, and under control.
Whatever harness you have bought, reputable manufacturers will include printed illustrations with guidelines instructing how best to successfully fit and adjust their harnesses. However, sometimes these instructions can confuse owners.
