If you have a dog-aggressive dog, consider a well-fitted nylon muzzle. Aggressive dogs use biting as a coping mechanism. A muzzle is a passive way of taking away this coping strategy. Once the dog realizes he can’t rely on a quick nip, he will resort to body posture and growling to cope with other dogs.
Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
