Hi @mydogisgreat and welcome to DF!

I worked on muzzle training over the winter with my dogs. Neither bite but I find that it's a good skill to have. You never know if they may find themselves in a vet's office needing to be muzzled. I'd prefer to prepare for it now so they are less stressed should the need arise.

I prefer a basket type muzzle. It allows them to pant, drink and accept treats while wearing it. I bought a Baskerville muzzle off of Amazon for about $20, I believe. It wasn't very expensive at all.

I'll second the vote for the Baskerville. They can pant, drink and take training treats through the muzzle. My dog has to use one at the vet (he turns into a snarling Wolf).

Muzzles that hold their mouth shut, are more uncomfortable and can't be left on as long.
