Pekingese... they are either 100% sweet or 100% rotten. That's how it is in my shop, anyway. I used to get by with only a large cat muzzle for my most rotten (and beloved!) Peke, but she finally figured out how to bite through that little hole in the front. She gave me a nice little rip in my hand! It was my first "open" bite (rather than a bite of the "scrape" or "bruise" variety) and it made me so mad that I cried... How embarrassing!
Anyway, I figured out a trick for muzzling the little stinker so she can't get me again. I put on the large cat muzzle, followed by a "shaped-for-a-chow" basket muzzle applied upside-down so that the short end is under the chin. It looks silly, but it works! This also works on those Shih-Tzus that I just can't trust to stay in a basket muzzle. If you try it, let me know how it works out for you. Or, if you have a different method for disarming these short-nosed dogs, please share!
Here is a picture of Crabby Abby in her fashionable double-muzzle attire:
*Please remember: Be very careful when using the cat muzzle, especially on a flat-faced breed of dog. Be sure the dog is breathing normally, and try to limit the amount of time that the dog is wearing the muzzle to prevent any overheating/suffocation problems. Give them a break if they need one!
