Dog Muzzle Barking

There are several styles of muzzles, which are manufactured using fabric, wire, leather or some combination of the three. Dogs come in different sizes with snouts of various lengths, so muzzles come in a number of configurations that correspond to those various shapes and sizes.

With most dogs, if you fit them with the proper muzzle in the appropriate size, you can get it just right so that the dog will be able to drink, breathe, and pant in a normal fashion, but will not be able to get his mouth open wide enough to bark. Therefore, it is possible to use a muzzle as an anti-barking device, and there was a time when they were commonly employed for that purpose. But times have changed and perspectives have shifted to the point that it is now considered cruel to muzzle a dog for an extended period of time

Dogs bark. It is part of their normal and natural communication and behavior. Dogs can bark for appropriate and good reasons, such as when strangers approach our house, they hear an odd noise, or they are herding sheep. Most of us want our dogs to be "watch dogs" and alert us to anything unusual. But dogs can also bark inappropriately. In two scientific surveys of dog owners, approximately 1/3 of them reported their dogs barked excessively.

Another type of collar that may be effective is a halter collar. This type of collar looks more like a horse halter; brand names include Gentle Leader/Promise System Canine Head Collar and Halti Head collars. When you pull on the leash portion, a portion of the collar tightens around the dog's muzzle. By using a quick pull of the lead, saying "Enough" when the dog is quiet, and then rewarding him, you may find the training goes faster.
