    What is a head collar and why do you use it. Also, I know what a muzzle is. When do you use it?

    • Sarah Baker says:

      A head collar is like a halter used on a horse. It controls the dog’s head so they cannot pull very hard. It is used to make it easier to walk a dog that pulls hard when on leash.

      Usually I use a muzzle if I am concerned about someone’s safety. For example, Hops wears one when he goes to the eye doctor because a stranger putting their face near his makes him very uncomfortable. He also wears one when loose in the house with our dogs so if he goes over threshold he cannot hurt anyone.

      I also travel to Europe with my dogs. Over there dogs are allowed to be in many more public places than in the states, especially if they are muzzled.

      I think all dogs should be muzzle trained so in case they have to wear one some day they will be comfortable and not freaked out.
