    OPPO Quack Turns Your Dog Into A Duck

    Muzzles are great for preventing your dogs from unwanted biting and barking.   You have to admit, though, muzzles can make even the nicest canines look extremely menacing (especially when they’re sleeping in a supervillain pet crate).  That won’t be the case when your pet wears the OPPO Quack over his snout. Like regular dog muzzles, it will keep your hound from biting strangers that spook them in the park or bark with the fury of noisy fireworks at three in [...]
