Take it on the road!

You did it!! 

You’ve made it to the end and I hope you’re feeling confident and your dog is feeling comfortable. 

Work in short bursts around the house, then the backyard, then for a short walk, all while reinforcing them with food frequently to keep their attention on you and the food rather than on the muzzle. 

If at any point, your dog is rubbing the muzzle against your leg or the ground, or trying to paw it off, it means you’ve moved too far too fast. Redirect their attention to something else for a swift moment, and once they’ve stopped for a second, remove the muzzle and re-evaluate your training plan.

Where did you rush the process? Go back and try again. No harm done! 

Great job!!
