Dog lovers worldwide constantly fight over which good boy is the cutest and most adorable. However, for some dog owners, cuteness is boring and they want their doggo to scare the living daylights out of their neighbors instead. They achieved this in one of the most innovative ways ever - by turning their furry friends into vicious werewolves with the help of a simple novelty muzzle.
If you’re all about shock value as well, love supernatural creatures and believe it’s never too early to get ready for Halloween, then you might consider getting your dog a muzzle that looks exactly like the snarling jaws of a rabid werewolf.
However, be warned that this muzzle will make even the most innocent puppy or sleepy old-timer look as though they want to tear a chunk of flesh out of somebody’s leg and then howl at the moon.
While the werewolf muzzle is great for a laugh on Halloween or during the full moon when others are expecting odd-looking creatures and weird monsters to roam the streets, it might not be the best idea to have your dog wearing it every time you take it out for walkies. The muzzle’s massive plastic bloodstained teeth are liable to give anyone a heart attack, especially kids and the elderly. It’s great for keeping thieves away from your home, but far from not the best way to make new friends at the local park.
According to SpookyPup’s listing for the muzzle on Amazon, their product is supposed to be ‘hilarious’ and a way for man’s best friend to join you on your annual Halloween hunt for candy, chocolate and, hopefully, Scooby Snacks. There are three muzzle sizes to choose from (medium, large and extra-large) so most dog lovers will have the opportunity to turn their fluffy amigos into terrifying Terriers.
The werewolf muzzle is as fun as it is scary, but it raises a couple of important issues. First of all, most dogs that wear muzzles are seen as dangerous, whether or not they really are. Secondly, some people think that muzzling dogs is cruel.
The fact is, a dog with a muzzle means its owner is being responsible and very careful. For example, the dog might have recently been injured and we all know how pain can make even the friendliest critters lash out. Meanwhile, other dogs are very inquisitive and will eat anything in sight, from pebbles to bugs, so it’s important to prevent this for their own sake. Lastly, depending on where you live and what breed your dog is, you may be legally forced to make it wear a muzzle, even if your pupper has never hurt anyone before. As far as cruelty is concerned, it’s very important that your dog has been trained to wear muzzles and that they aren’t too small or constricting.
Some experts argue that all owners should get their dogs used to muzzles from an early age, just in case they need to wear one in the future. According to experts, sooner or later a situation will occur where your dog will have to wear a muzzle, so it’s in everyone’s interest for the dog not to fear muzzles from the very start. Unfortunately, not all dogs love muzzles.
The best way for your dog to quickly get used to muzzles is to associate it with fun, getting compliments and plenty of delicious treats. Remember to generously reward your dog and shower it with love for being near a muzzle at the start of the training and for wearing it later on.
"Looks great. Fits a little lose but that could just be me getting the wrong size, a little bit confusing."
"Ordered this just for fun and it is worth every penny. Made well, fits well, and looks fantastic! I'm so glad I ordered!"
"Love the spooky teeth muzzle. My German Shepherd pup wore it on Halloween and seriously got more reactions and compliments than my kids did. It's made very well and shipped extremity fast. Definatly would recommend this to anyone."
"This thing is great! I wouldnt suggest it as an actually muzzle if your dog is super aggressive. But as just a precaution or as a costume its very cute. It worked very well for my pup in both the haunted house we worked at and in the creative grooming competition we competed in."
"I bought this for halloween. I think it looks a little goofy but fits like described( large for a lab) and looks like the picture."
"Great! My dog is from the shelter and she is very shy. Kids always try to pet her and she is horrified!! Put this on and she gets confidence!"
"This is a pretty cool looking muzzle. And the durability isn't bad either. I would definitely recommend."
"The medium was the right size for my husky, but I got the large. I'm happy with it because she has extra space to drink water with it. And it's very easy to adjust she never fights when I put it on. I just got it for when new people come to my house that my dog doesn't know, she can be a bully to strangers and has a small nipping issue if she hasn't warmed up to you."
"Size was a bit big for my shepherd but for Halloween it will work. Just to have her dressed up and a sense of relief to take the kids out. It is super hard plastic and nice sturdy clip to attach behind the head"
