A temporary muzzle can be created from a strip of cloth. Find a cloth bandage, rope, or other long strip of fabric. Tie a large loop (with a half knot) in the center of the bandage. Approaching the dog from the side or from behind, slip the loop over the end of the nose, and with the loose ends to the sides of the head, gently tighten the loop around the muzzle (Step 1). Cross the ends of the bandage under the dog’s jaw (Step 2). Firmly tie the crossed ends at the back of the dog’s neck, behind the ears. (Step 3).
