The Ancol Mesh Dog Muzzle is one of the most humane ways of protecting other dogs and people around your dog. It's very sad to have to admit you need to use this muzzle, but for some dogs, it is essential to give you piece of mind.
Your dog is probably very comfortable around your home and familiar environments, but when a dog is placed under stressful situations, whatever they may be, his or her temperament may change. Small children who climb on and try to play with your dog is a prime example.
It would be very difficult to prosecute you and your dog for being dangerously out of control in a public place, If he or she was wearing a muzzle. As an expert witness under the Dangerous Dogs Act, I am more than aware how easy it is to be prosecuted under this act. Leaving you with a criminal record, a hefty fine, and the possibility of your being euthanised. Be safe not sorry.
The Ancol Mesh Dog muzzle is hygienic, washable and comfortable when fitted correctly. When fitting for the first time, introduce the muzzle for short periods of time, lengthening the time of use gradually until your dog accepts it. See my article Introducing a Muzzle
Try to do this during normal, unstressed times of the day, your dog will probably not enjoy this at first, but perseverance will ensure an unstressed dog.
The Ancol nylon mesh muzzle is comfortable to wear, fits well and allows the dog to drink and pant safely.
