I'm positive that seeing DA dog lunging at other dogs as a child is NOT beneficial to the breed when that child grows up and has a say in things like BSL. When you have a breed as misunderstood as the Pit Bull you want to show the public good examples of the breed. I really think you're missing my point. I never stated that DA dogs attacked children, nor did I discourage the use of muzzles for safety reasons.How does being a DA dog have anything to do with harming or traumatizing children? If a dog is muzzled for the safety of other dogs, it has jack to do with people generally. Dog aggression does not equal human aggression in the least.
As for "traumatizing" other dogs, I'll say that my dog and a few of my fosters have been the presence of muzzled dogs and have not seemed traumatized.
The entire point of muzzling a DA dog is to make is safe to be in public around other dogs (should there be other dogs- I'm not suggesting going to a dog park, but things like walking on-leash in a neighborhood)
