1. Why do I need a muzzle?
Many people think that the muzzle is ONLY to prevent the dog from biting someone. If we have a peaceful pooch, we often do not use a muzzle, because we know that the animal will not do harm to anyone. Wrong. The law requires that a dog that belongs to an aggressive breed must wear a muzzle, a forgetful owner may be fined when walking the pet without muzzle. Furthermore, the muzzle is useful in situations where we are not able to totally control the behavior of the dog. An example might be an evening walk, when you do not always see all the objects in the grass or on the sidewalk. If the dog is sniffing around the floor might find unwanted junk and the muzzle will effectively prevent it from eating it. e.g. An used syringe, sharp pieces of glass, stale food or poison for rats. The muzzle is also useful in the handling of aggressive dogs and serves as an additional safeguard against biting other animals. Furthermore, it should be on the dog's mouth during a visit to the vet or a ride in the train or bus. The animal can decipher bad intentions from the vet or a person who approaches the dog while commuting by public transport. With the muzzle you will avoid unnecessary inconveniences resulting from the fact that our dog might bite someone or even rip someone’s pants. As far as we muzzle associated with something unpleasant for the dog, so much for a pet it will even protect against dangerous "morsels" from the sidewalk.
2. Are muzzles CrazyMuzzle safe?
Although it is not required by law in the case of accessories for pets, we examined our muzzles as if they were a toy for a small child. A sample of the material we use to make our muzzles meets the requirements for migration of the elements Al, Sb, Ba, B, Cd, Cr (III), Cr (VI), Co, Cu, Pb, Mn, Hg, Ni, Se, Sr, Sn and Zn (PN-EN 71 + 3 + A1: 2014-12), as well as the content of phthalates and cadmium (Regulation of the European Parliament and Council Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), as amended. d.). The study was conducted in an accredited Laboratory of Material Engineering and the Environment (AB 910) of the notified body KOMAG (notification No. 1456) in the framework of Directive 2009/48 / EC. The test report No. 70 / DLS / 2016 can be downloaded here. We give great importance to the safety of the pets, because we are dog owners as well. We want our products to represent safety for pets.
3. How to teach your dog to walk wearing a muzzle?
The best way to teach a dog to wear a muzzle is to start at an early age, so the dog gets used to it from the beginning. However, if there is in the house an adult quadruped, we also have a chance to quickly teach him to walk with the muzzle. Take advantage from the beginning of a few tricks so the dog can get used to the fact that something is tightening up his mouth and it’s not associated with anything bad or harmful. You can put its favorite treats to your pet in a narrow bucket, cup or relax in the house to pet him with the hand while he is wearing the muzzle. In this way, placing the muzzle will not be associated with something unpleasant. Another recommended exercise is to leave the muzzle on the floor and prepare treats for your dog. We can teach the dog to wear the muzzle without jerking him and forcing him to do so. If the dog shows any interest in the muzzle, he will get a treat. The next step is to place the muzzle on the dog fur just a moment and then reward the dog with a treat. Then place the muzzle once again but this time you buckle it, and then you take it off and reward the dog with a treat. When doing these actions you must say the command “Muzzle”. Do not drag this training too long or the dog will learn to insert the mouth into the muzzle just for a moment in order to get a reward. Another exercise may be placing a treat in the muzzle and encourage the dog to put his mouth into the muzzle and eat its favorite morsel. The next step is to motivate your pet to plugging in the mouth muzzle, where there are no goodies. Such home-training will accustom your pet to wear a muzzle.
4. What size?
Selection of the proper size muzzle is very important, because the dog is an animal that do not have sweat glands, and regulates body temperature thanks to the opening of the mouth and the pads on the feet. The muzzle must allow the dog to stick its tong out. Mounting should not constrict the dog, but must also prevent the pet from losing the muzzle. Length should take into account the fact that a muzzle too tight muzzle can irritate the dog's nose. The length of the muzzle should be measured from tip of nose roughly to the space between the eyes. About a centimeter from the eyes pooch will be able to measure the circumference of the widest part of the mouth. These two dimensions will help us choose the right muzzle. Manufacturers use different markings and a size M in one company may not match the size of M in the other. Remember that the dog must freely open their mouth in the muzzle, nose and eyes and cannot be irritated by any components of the product.
