Shelter Dog Spike Learns To Muzzle (Up For Adoption)



Spike has been looking for a family for 8 years. 🐶 He is a fearful dog who is still learning to be comfortable with humans. Our volunteer dog mentors decided to include the muzzle game in his training to help him in situations where handling is needed, e.g. vet visits, ear cleaning.

To form a positive association with muzzles, our volunteers first gave him treats whenever they showed muzzles to him. After many sessions and advancing only when Spike felt comfortable, muzzle training has now become a fun game! He voluntarily stuffs his nose into the muzzle when it is presented and gets rewarded handsomely for that.

He will do best with a family who can continue his force-free training and show him that this world can be a wonderful place if you have the right support system. If you or someone you know can give him a home, book an adoption appointment: bit.ly/SPCABooking.
