|I used to work at a doggy daycare and there was one dog that was always muzzled on walks - owners choice too, not just mine.
He would lunge, snap and go after ANYTHING/ONE out of the ordinary. If a kid on a skateboard went by, he'd lunge and try to attack. And yes, he WOULD bite. If kids in particular were near him, he'd snap and try to go after them. He was very uncomfortable in general, and while his owners were doing a lot of training classes with him, etc... They were very in denial about their dogs issues for the most part. They fully believed their dogs could do no wrong, but agreed to the muzzle since we were in an area with a school.
People gave him plenty of space, but otherwise, I had no issues.
I fully believe it shows you KNOW what your dogs issues are, and are trying to work on them while keeping everyone safe. That in itself tells of a responsible dog owner.
