Grooming Aggressive Dogs

Over the years, we have received several aggressive dogs where we had to employ this technique of wearing the basket muzzle during our grooming/bathing sessions.  This particular type of muzzle allows the dog to open and close his/her mouth and breath through it’s mouth allowing less chance of overheating.  Many police departments use the basket muzzle.  This type of grooming is not for the novice and a regular fabric/vinyl muzzle (which is the common type available at the pet store or at your vet) should not be used nor kept on for more than a few minutes, and less if the temperature is very hot.
