Breaking the Stereotype: Positive Basket Muzzle Training​

  • Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 7:00pm
  • Location: Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

It's time to eliminate the negative associations with muzzles and learn all the good muzzles can do.

Muzzles can be a life saver (preventing dogs from eating things off the ground and to avoid a foreign body surgery), a training tool (great for gentle handling, especially near the face), a behavior modification tool, and a piece of safety equipment (for use during vet visits, on walks, and transporting or treating a dog who has suffered a traumatic event). And with proper training, it can be low stress and fun for your dog to wear.

Join us to learn why it is important that all dogs are trained to a muzzle (just like a leash, harness or collar). We will teach you about the different types of muzzles, which ones are appropriate for certain situations, and how to properly fit a muzzle. All while learning how to make muzzle training fun and positive for your dog.

The goal of positive muzzle training is when you have to use a muzzle it does not create any extra stress on your pet.

A little about our Free Help Sessions:

Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. As much as we wish we could include your pet in this class, it is for humans only, so please leave all those sweet and wonderful pets at home.

These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care. Thank you for understanding.

In case of inclement weather, class will be cancelled. If you have any doubt whether the class will be held, check our Facebook page or call Animal Hospital of North Asheville at 828-253-3393.
