I condition all of my dogs to muzzles. Most do not tolerate them well without it, and if your dog ever needs one, it is likely to be a very stressful situation already. Why stress them out more?
Whether you do it now or wait doesn't matter, it will work just the same, but if you need a muzzle between now and then, it'd be better to do it now.

I like leerburg's words on it. Though I haven't done it, read too late.
'When you're crate training them also condition them to the muzzle. Gives them something else to think about besides being in the crate.'
Lol I don't know how this works, just passing it on. It was funny to read

|tjpearse||OK. I've been trying to socialize him/condition him to everything I possibly can. Just wasn't too sure on the muzzle so thanks for the info.|

Unless you need it, there's no reason to worry about it at this point.
Both my dogs have had to wear a muzzle once in their life, for hip x-rays. No fuss, no worry, it was on in seconds and off in minutes.

I'm sure he won't ever need a muzzle because he's the world's most happy-go-lucky dog. But, Is it better to start conditioning my pup to a muzzle now in case he ever needs it when he gets older? Or is it pretty simple to get them used to it as an adult?
