It's not a muzzle already.

It's summer again which means it's time to get out with the dogs. And by "out" I mean outside our neighborhood.
So here recently for some reason people have been making comments about Greighson's Gentle Leader. I have had 3 people in the past two days comment about his having a muzzle on.
It's not a muzzle.
I always correct people and wonder how they think that thin strap would keep him from licking all over them if they got close enough to him.
But that's what seems to be the consensus.
And the last thing I want is for people to think my kid has on a muzzle. He's not a biter and we don't want to promote fear of dogs of any kind.
But he is a puller and the Gentle Leader provides a safe, non-violent means of redirecting his behavior.
But it's not a muzzle.
Maybe I should just make him a sign to wear around his neck.

**Disclosure: Greighson's ears are not cropped - they're just really floppy and they're flopped over in this picture.


  1. I hear you, plus, it's on a Pit Bull. Which means the mean, awful Pit Bull has to be muzzled. No, you ignorant fool! Argh.

  2. we ended up switching the the halter style because people kept commenting on Mesa
