Recently, The Muzzle Up! Project launched our first challenge: Show us how you make muzzle fetch fun and enriching for your dogs. We got some great responses, two of which are featured in this post. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook page to get involved!

“My rescue greyhound Dennis is delighted to finally have a ball he is able to retrieve whilst wearing his muzzle (Nobble ball from Just Dogs Shop).” – Jane Jones
