A Good Idea
Bonny is a ferocious girl at times and we are considering using a muzzle so she can be trusted when out in public. She is nice to me (mostly), lovely to people, but she does not like other dogs who are new to her and mum often has to “lead her up” to punish her or simply to protect the other dog. The brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier who lives next door, Sheba, who is the love of my life (I once ran all the way home from the park – just to “pay my respects”) has the same kind of temperament as Bonny. Sheba loves her family, is friendly to people, but can get very cross and “bitey” with other dogs. The solution: Her mum Mandy uses a muzzle. Now Sheba can run and play off the lead and “not to get into any trouble!”. Sheba’s dad Sid, has a bad back at the moment and we wish him a speedy recovery.
