The Husher - Elastic Training Aid MuzzleRated 5/5 based on 1 reviews.
The most humane & effective solution for reducing barking, chewing biting and agression.
As the name suggests, The Husher is a product that takes away a dog’s desire to bark. A barking dog is a terrible nuisance to owners so a product that prevents a dog from barking in a humane manner will always be in high demand from dog owners.
Many products that stop a dog from barking do so by delivering an electric shock. This can be cruel, and the dog only stops barking because it is scared of the shock. The Husher simply tires the dog out when it opens its mouth wide enough to bark, there are no shocks involved.
When a dog is amongst other dogs, the pack leader will show his superiority by grasping the other dogs’ muzzles in its mouth. The Husher works on the same philosophy.
Dogs feel greater security when they know who is boss. The Husher shows a dog who is the boss, and you will receive greater obedience from a dog that is wearing The Husher.
The Husher has an elastic panel that gently, but firmly, puts pressure on a dog’s muzzle. There is very little pressure on the muzzle when the dog is not trying to bark, but when the dog tries to bark the pressure increases, tiring the dog and removing his desire to bark.
Dogs are still able to pant and drink without hindrance, it is only when a dog tries to open to its jaw wide enough to bark that The Husher kicks in.
Selecting the correct size of The Husher that fits your dog is very important.
Using a piece of string, measure the circumference of your dog's snout by starting at point "A" and taking the string around your dog's mouth finishing back at point "A". Next, measure the distance (bridge length) from just below eyes (start of snout) to tip of the nose. Compare the measurements you have taken ("A" to "A") and ("A" to "B") against the sizing chart to select the correct size of The Husher for your dog.
Fitting The Husher to your dog.
Once you have The Husher with you, identify the top side of it for correct fitting. The top side has the word 'Husher' branded on it for easy identification. Slide the Husher, top side up, over your dogs snout so that it fits snugly. If it is difficult to fit then you should consider the next size up if it is too tight, or the next size down if it is too loose. An incorrectly fitted or wrong sized Husher will not change the unwanted behaviours of your dog. It is very important the correct size of the Husher is used otherwise the dog may not be able to pant, drink or eat. The Husher has the black elastic at the top which is slightly cut back so that it wont rub up against your dogs face.
Snap the buckle together behind your dog's neck and tighten the strap so that it is firm, but not overly tight. If you find that after pulling the strap tight, your dog still removes The Husher, then try wrapping the strap once around your dog's collar before you snap the buckle together.
Do not leave your dog unattended while wearing The Husher until you are certain it can pant and drink properly. Check your dog regularly.
Training your dog with The Husher
To get your dog used to wearingThe Husher,leave it on for two minutes, remove it and then repeatseveral times. The time and frequency The Husher is used should be gradually increased until the dog accepts it. Once your dog is comfortable wearing The Husher, you can begin to train and modify their unwanted behaviour.
Teach your dog a moderate verbal "Hush" command when wearing The Husher or displaying unwanted behaviour. If you find that you dog continues to bark or struggle whilst wearing the Husher, then try distracting your pet during the process by either playing withthemor taking them for a walk.
Don't forget to praise and reward your pet when it behaves properly. Positive reinforcement is a good thing.
THE HANDLER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ANIMAL'S SAFETY AND BEHAVIOUR AT ALL TIMES.
husher muzzleBy: debby Mccafferty on 9 July 2019it worked a treat. no barking
works well16 March 2017We had an excessive barker and tried everything. We have found this to be a good solution to the immediate problem but not so good as a training tool. She now hides if she sees it. But when it is on it works well. Love that she can still eat drink and pant. We occassionaly hear a couple of barks but not the ongoing ones like before
It worksBy: Gerry on 16 March 2017I have found the Husher to be an effective, safe and kind aid to the stopping of unnecessary barking by my dog. He allows me to put it on which he wouldn't do if it was harming him in any way. He certainly doesn't like it and knows when I reach for it that he is doing wrong in senseless barking. After a few wearings I usually just have to wave it at him and say Hush and he will stop. But as he has a very determined nature I have to be consistent in its use when necessary.
