Oh Tracy, I know! But perhaps after wearing the basket muzzle 
awhile, he'll catch on.  Cleo did.  She wore it.  Then I'd try 
not having her wear it, and she'd screw up, so back on it would 
go.  After awhile it got longer and longer between times when she 
screwed up.  She literally would almost pull me off my feet 
lunging under a table in a restaurant as we passed by if there 
was food there.  I really think that there are dogs that just 
can't resist grabbing stuff, no matter what you do.  So you have 
to make the consequence something that they hate, really hate.  
Cleo really hated the basket muzzle.  But like I said, she 
eventually got over grabbing stuff so much.  Hang in there!
