    Default Where can I get muzzle that fits my bully's mug?

    Hello fellow Bully lovers,

    Need advice or suggestions regarding taking Hooch to get his nails cut. Just went to vet's office last night and was there for two hours trying to get
    Hooch's nails cut. He actually has to be drugged because he will try to bite anyone who tries to cut his nails. He obviously had a bad experience one time when we took him to a groomer and it is now impossible to do it without drugging him because they do not have a muzzle at the vets that fits him.

    This too was so stressful for him because first they tried to give the drug IV and couldn't find a vein by the time they decided to give him another drug via IM shot, he was so stressed out, hyperventilating and trying to jump off the table that I was about ready to call the whole thing off. They gave him the shot which they thought was going to put him out and were amazed that forty mins later he was still able to get up and walk around. I do not like using drugs and will not put him through that again. After all that he went through, there were still three nails on the front paw they were unable to cut because of his stress level. So please if anyone can tell me where to get the proper muzzle or come up with any other suggestions of how to resolve the problem it would be greatly appreciated. Shamrock13

    There is a website called Fordogtrainers.com, and they have training necessities for individual breeds. They have muzzles for English Bulldogs. I purchased several items from them, when I had my Malanois.

    That's to bad that he's become like that, I would have called it off. I cant handle watching that. Have you ever tried dremmeling his nails yourself? Not clipping. We had a really hard time with Buster when he was younger but my wife started to use treats and it has made all the difference in the world. It took a bunch of times to get to that point but he eventually got what she was trying to get him to do. Using Hooches favorite treats or treats he's never had before might make a big difference. I know they sell muzzles specific to English on Amazon.

    I'm sorry to hear that you guys are going through this. I have a similar problem with Brutus. They muzzle him. I don't know what size it is though.

    Lynn, thank you so much for that site information. They have the perfect muzzle for my bully boy. I will get my husband to help me get the proper measurements to insure the right fit. Hooch and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts . I woke up this morning and told my husband that I put a post on this wonderful site with it's wonderful people and that I knew this group would come up with the answer. No longer do I have to stress out and have Hooch stress out just to get his nails cut. Shamrock13 and Hooch

    Thanks Phil for you response. Believe me, I was so exhausted when I got home because of all the stress he had to go through, but he will never be put through that again. I do have a Pedi Paw apparatus but he (or my lab Sadie) won't allow me to use it on them. I told my husband I believe the pedi paw needs to be introduced to them when they are young puppies. So I will keep it and use it if we ever get another pup. The muzzle that Lynn recommended from the dogtrainersite.com, is the perfect solution. Your dog Buster is so handsome. Shamrock13 and Hooch

    Poor boy! I would probably need some anti anxiety meds myself. Even though Orion bites me while cutting her nails, she does fine with the techs doing it. Vegas has always allowed me to cut his nails....but he now seems to think that if he does what Orion does, he will get out of it. He doesn't realize that Orion is NOT a good role model.

    I love the bulldog kiss pic Cheryl, and believe me I was in bed early that night because of my stress level, it exhausted me. But, thanks to the site that Lynn posted, the problems is solved. Hooch has been measured and his new muzzle should arrive in a few days. And to answer you question Cheryl, yes I do kiss my bull dog on the lips shamrock13 and Hooch

    Poor Hooch and Momma.... hope the muzzle works out and you can help get him through the clipping with so much less stress.

    Great find Lynn!

    Every time Stinky goes to the vets they have to muzzle him. Seem like every time he goes there they cut something off.Poor little Stinky.
