Muzzle Art Monday – February 17, 2014

In the spirit of the winter season, today’s muzzle art features something that’s been dominating the weather forecasts lately: snow! Thank you Eleni Luuersz Calomiris for sharing this gorgeous photo of her late dog, Pike. Eleni says Pike “loved to stick his muzzle in the snow to make snow cones.”

Lynn Bartkowicz Heun sent us this photo of her dog, Balton, sporting his blue Baskerville muzzle during a romp in the snow. (You can watch a video of his winter adventures on our Facebook page.)

Muzzle comfort and style

Meet this gorgeous rescued whippet from Muzzle Up! supporter Leanne from the Warwick Dog Training Club.

“She is a rescued Whippet mix so wears a whippet muzzle. (She has a purple and a pink one! I’ve slightly modified them by putting fleece on the nose band),” Leanne writes. “She gets nervous around boisterous dogs and also when people she doesn’t know approach her. I feel so much more confident when she wears it in public. I have been able to take her to the beach, country park and public places where I would have worried before hand.”
