The muzzle will hang over the edge of the cups as it is slipped inside. The dog should be able to pull their head up and down with their mouth open. If they can’t do this, they will need to be trained to do it themselves. This will take some time, but it can be done.
It is also important to train your dog to put their muzzle on the side of their body, rather than the top, as this will make it easier for them to get the food in their mouths.

Do muzzles calm dogs down?
Muzzles are a great training tool because they give you opportunities to have fun with your dog. They can also be considered part of your emergency kit, something that may come in really handy to relax your dog and, possibly, even prevent your pet from getting hurt. What is a Muzzle and How Do I Use It?
A muzzled dog is one who is not allowed to bark, howl, or otherwise communicate with other dogs or people. This is done to prevent the dog from injuring himself or others. A dog’s muzzle is designed to keep him or her from biting or injuring another dog or person.
If you have a dog that is prone to biting, you may want to consider purchasing a muzzle to help prevent this from happening in the first place.
Can you train aggressiveness out of a dog?
Yes, training an aggressive dog is possible. Aggression in dogs, whether it be toward a dog’s owner or other dogs, is a serious behavior that needs to be adjusted with the help of a trained professional.
If your dog shows any of the following behaviors, it is likely that he or she has a history of aggression toward people and/or other animals: barking, growling, lunging at people, biting, chasing, jumping up and down on people or objects, running away from people/objects, and biting.
If you suspect that your pet may be aggressive, please contact your local animal control agency for assistance.
Will a muzzle teach a dog not to bite?
Muzzling your dog should not be used in place of training. A muzzle will only prevent your dog being able to bite; but a dog wearing a muzzle is much more likely to be trained to behave in a way that is acceptable to you and your family.
Should I muzzle my aggressive dog?
If your dog is aggressive and/or has bitten another dog or a person in the past, a muzzle can be used for safety. If you think the risk of a dog bite exists, and your dog lunges and barks at other dogs or people, then a muzzle may be a good idea.
A muzzle is a device that covers the muzzle of the dog with a cloth or cloth-like material. The cloth is placed over the nose, mouth, and muzzle. A muzzle does not cover the eyes, ears, or muzzle itself. It is designed to prevent dogs from biting people or other animals, but it is not a substitute for proper training and socialization.
Is putting a muzzle on a dog cruel?
If the wrong muzzle is used, it can be cruel. If the dog is not acclimatized to wearing it, or if a muzzle is used without addressing the underlying issues that led to the problem in the first place, it can be cruel.
In fact, I would argue that the opposite is true: that dogs with muzzle wear are less likely than dogs without to suffer from the problems that lead to their wearing of the muzzle. The reason for this is that, in general, dogs wear their muzzle for a variety of reasons, some of which are obvious and others not so obvious. For example, many dogs are fearful of people and other animals.
How long should a dog wear a muzzle?
You should try to keep your dog muzzled for 30 minutes. When the dog is calm and quiet, the muzzle should only be removed. If you remove the muzzle immediately after the dog struggles or paws at it, the dog will learn that the actions you take get it what it wants.
If you have a dog that struggles with a muzzle, it may be a good idea to try a different type of muzzle. For example, you may want to use a soft muzzle that is more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.
