Will this prevent my dog from being able to chew on self or other objects?
My female pitbull is typically a happy go lucky girl, very mindful, and easy care, but NOT while she is going through treatments and/or recovering from treatments, as she is now. Bitter tapes have been used with a head cone but she is very much a Houdini, and not deterred by much. We have had to completely readjust our schedules so that someone is with her always. We do NOT want her to repeat what she did 2 yrs ago, after returning from vet for treatment of a pretty bad laceration to her tail (from "HAPPY TAIL") she had to be rushed back to have it amputated because she chewed it off/down to the bone.

I would not recommend this as a long term solution to prevent your dog from chewing on things. That is a behavior that needs to be prevented through training not a muzzle. It is unfair to keep a muzzle on a dog for long periods of time.

Yes, it will. I also have a Pit, and I got him the muzzle mostly cuz he loves to destroy our room when me and my bf leave, but also because he gets bad about chewing on himself too. The muzzle stops him from being able to chew up anything- including himself. Definitely recommend it.
