Product Description

The world’s most effective and humane elastic training aid muzzle for reducing barking, chewing, biting & aggression allowing the animal to pant, eat & drink while wearing it!

The Husher is a very simple but effective training aid. It is made from stretchable elastic, with webbing around the elastic to limit the expansion of the dog's snout. The elastic exerts a firm yet humane pressure around the snout, similar to that applied by a canine pack leader to maintain dominance.

When pressure is applied around their snout, the controlled expansion of The Husher tires the muscles very easily. After a few short barks, dogs find it easier and less tiresome not to exhibit nuisance behaviour.

This amount of pressure though still allows your pet to breathe (from both the front and back of the mouth), pant, drink and eat with ease. The neck strap is attached at three points, which makes it very difficult for the dog to dislodge. The straps are attached to a buckle which clips at the back of the animals head.

The Husher comes in a range of sizes to fit all sizes and breeds of dogs. To find the right size for your dog you will need to take some simple measurements and compare them to The Husher sizing chart.


Sizing the Husher
Checking the right size for your dog

Step 1.

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". This can be seen in the box below. Next, measure the distance (bridge length) from "A" to "B", which is also shown in the box below.

Step 2.
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. (If you would like a larger photo please click on photos)

Fitting
Fitting The Husher to your dog.

Step 1.
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 HusherTM, top side up, over your dogs snout so that it fits snugly. If it is tight and difficult to fit then you should consider the next size up, or the next size down if it is too loose. An incorrectly fitted or wrong sized HusherTM will not change the unwanted behaviours of your dog. It is very important the correct size of the HusherTM is used otherwise the dog may not be able to pant, drink or eat. The HusherTM has the black elastic at the top which is slightly cut back so that it wont rub up against your dogs face.

Step 2.
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 can still remove the HusherTM, then try wrapping the strap once around your dog's collar before you snap the buckle together.

CAUTION:
Do not leave your dog unattended while wearing the HusherTM until you are certain it can pant and drink properly. Check your dog regularly.

Handy Tips
Dogs will vary in the time it takes them to get used to wearing the HusherTM. Make the experience of wearing the HusherTM a positive one and your dog will accept the training aid easily. Try some of the following tips:
•Get your dog used to the HusherTM gradually. Put the HusherTM over your dog's nose and give your dog a treat. Take the HusherTM off again and then put it back on, fasten it and leave for a few seconds. Reward your dog and take it off again.
•For those dogs that are reluctant to wear the HusherTM, put it on the floor and allow your dog to sniff at it, but not to chew or bite at it. Put a treat on top of the HusherTM and your dog will associate the elastic training aid with a pleasant experience. Do this several times before attempting to fit the HusherTM on your dog.
•Gradually extend the time that your dog wears the HusherTM. Make wearing the training aid a positive experience for your pet. Try feeding your dog, giving your dog a treat or taking your dog for a walk while they are wearing the HusherTM.
•If your dog attempts to take the HusherTM off, distract your dog by asking your dog to walk, sit or perform another activity. Reward your dog with treats, pats or praise when your dog leaves the training aid on without complaint.
•If your dog continually manages to take the HusherTM off, you may need to tighten the strap or consider a different size training aid.
•Be prepared to devote anything from a few minutes to a couple of weeks to achieve your dog's acceptance of the HusherTM.
