Dogs on public transportation

10 May

The question of whether dogs should wear muzzles on public transportation is quite a controversial one in Vienna. To address the concern dog owners often express that their dogs suffer when wearing one, the public transport authority here talked with a dog trainer (who actually gave some good tips on how to make travel easier on the dogs). His message: if properly (gently, with positive reinforcement) introduced to the muzzle, the dog shouldn’t suffer at all. To encourage the humans with the dogs to put the muzzle on their pets, the Wiener Linien were handing out free treats to those who complied. 🙂 Only in Vienna!
