A ridiculously adorable and friendly Labrador and she has recently received her custom BUMAS muzzle, which means she is now back to running through mud puddles and rolling in unthinkable smelly things.
She is a super friendly dog and happy to meet people and dogs on her walk, so why does she need a muzzle?
Hannah has Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) but she also loves to eat basically anything she can put in her mouth. This makes walking a bit stressful for her owner.
Her owner decided to get Hannah a fancy BUMAS muzzle with added security straps so they can both still enjoy their forest walks together. Hannah is no longer able to put everything in her mouth so her owner can relax and enjoy the walk too.
Hannah is now also a diabetic along with her IBD so eating things that she isn't allowed is a triple threat to her health.
Muzzles aren't just for aggressive dogs, there are so many other reasons including medical and behavioural. Sometimes people put muzzles on their dogs to keep other dogs and their owners away because they have anxiety disorders and prefer not to have other dogs in their face.
Let's drop the stigma and start embracing muzzling our dogs.

A solid Recall is essential for your dog but yet it is probably hit and miss for many dogs.
Come is most often used without teaching the dog what it means first, so it just becomes a meaningless word. Teach your dog to come on a lead when it's a puppy.
Many people call their dog back, ask them to sit and give them a reward. This rewards them to sit not to come. Don't ask them to sit. Just reward them.
Make coming back to you exciting! The world is full of wonderful things to see and smell, you need to be better than the rest of the world. Be exciting.
Don't always call your dog for boring and of fun things. Ask them to come and then let them run free again. Call them to you to play a game..
