Your dog has the potential to lash out, can be reactionary, or has a tendency to try and eat things it shouldn't.

when you think a dog is gonna bite you or someone else's ass
>>
When it's in a situation where it's a liability/danger to people/other animals. Such as taking it to the vet, since you typically have to sit in a waiting room with a bunch of other people and their dogs. Or the groomers. I took my dog to the groomers and my dog just got mobbed by like 5 dogs.

when your 'dog' is just as likely to maul and devour you as it is other people
>>
>>2016633
With all pit bulls and pit mixes

That's an overgrown ferret.
They spend more time mauling each other than actual food.

When your dog is a big guy

Holy shit that nigga looks fabulous

Are you using overgrown ferret as an insult? Because ferrets and their entire family are about the most formidable carnivorous mammals.

whenever it's not being fed.

When there's a chance it will attack other people.

Or when it's a pit bull.

Can a muzzle be used as a training tool to break the habit of an adolescent dog's mischievous or attention-whoring snips? Not aggression, just ... I don't know. Playfulness, I suppose. But that shit still hurts if you get nipped on the inside of a thigh or something.

Training tool? Yes. Solution? No.

In training scenarios a muzzle should be used as a means to limit the harm or instant gratification that comes from performing whatever act you are training against. You will still need to put in the time and work to train the dog to behave in the way you want it to, not just teach it what they shouldn't do, and the muzzle should just be used as a back-up precaution for the instances when a dog doesn't behave as it should.
