Thank you! I have been looking at all of those articles and I will be watching the Q&A as well. I have a feeling that postponing the vet visit would be best for this dog for the time being so they can work on the muzzle conditioning. I’m excited to see what Michael says!
Another thing I should mention is that he snapped at them when they were shaping him to go onto a bed to teach him “place.” Standing farther from the bed resolved the issue, so I asked them to resume shaping while the muzzle is on the floor in a plastic dish and they can stand farther away for now. I asked them to try the D&T muzzle because the baskerville is not bite-proof, but I will ask them to use the baskerville if that is going to help in the conditioning process.
