The “werewolf muzzle” is the new trending accessory preferred by many pet owners who want their friendly dogs to look tougher. Created by a Russian company, this muzzle is essentially an anti-bite and anti-bark mask, accentuated by a set of very realistic-looking “werewolf teeth”, detailed further by fake “blood stains”.

Marina says that the werewolf muzzle is something she got for fun rather than training. After using the muzzle, she has noticed a drop in the number of strangers randomly wanting to pet her dogs. She feels the muzzle’s build gives her dogs a default snarl-face and highlights their “aggressive” personalities.

This controversial muzzle has divided the internet, with many believing that it is a stain on a dog’s grace and dignity. However, many people are taking it in a light-hearted manner and even calling it a great Halloween costume for dogs!
