Muzzles are good for reactive dogs, especially when there is a chance of a bite. Just be aware you have an issue to deal with on this as well.

When Woolf has his muzzle on is when I am an absolute witch about anyone approaching because I already know it is going to be one of those 'don't worry. I am good with dogs'
Absolutely, there are wack jobs out there anywhere.

When Delgado wears his Halti people will veer away, if he's just wearing his prong they are much more likely to walk up. That's just the Halti, I can only imagine what response a muzzle would elicit
