A Russian-based online store offers a muzzle which instantly gives your dog the appearance of a werewolf. Not all readers like the idea.
The muzzle is available from the online Russian store Zveryatam. It gives the illusion that the dog has large bloody snarling teeth. It is made of plastic and includes a nylon strap. It costs around $32 US.
Russian guitarist Alexey Kurulyov posted a photo of his dog wearing the muzzle, which has been heavily shared on social media.
The reaction to the muzzle has been met with mixed opinions. While some have marveled at the illusion that the muzzle creates, some readers have expressed that it could lead to unnecessary use of such a device for the entertainment of the owner.
The use of a muzzle is typically only ideal if the dog will be in a stressful situation. Caesar Milan writes, “If you have a dog that is likely to bite and you’re going to be in a situation that’s stressful for the dog, a muzzle might be a good idea.”
