I just wanted to know what your opinions are on muzzles.

As with most anything, if used correctly and for the intended purpose, muzzles do what they are intended to do very well. If they are used in specific situations, where dog biting may come into play, I agree with their use. They should not be left on for long periods of time, and if a dog has a serious biting problem, a muzzle is not the answer, as there are underlying behavioral problems to be corrected.

Excellent reply, Melissa!
