you said "Our thought as well,so what is she nervous about ? Zola does that when we are getting ready to go for a walk AND mouth slaps..... "

Zola is in a lot of stress even getting ready to go for that walk . A muzzle is not going to help while you drag her out into a situation that creates stress upon stress . That is a lot of apprehension --- the dog may very well bite and that is what you need to prevent.

What is her fear .
