This is an area that could definitely be termed a 'special interest' category. While there is a small but noticeable group of men who enjoy becoming 'dogs' or 'puppies', the majority still somewhat avoid this activity. The main attraction seems to be a much greater sublimation of the human-self than in most Master/slave or top/bottom scenarios.
Various dog training sessions:
The duct tape SILVERDOG Transformation
Perhaps the most intense transformation is one where the "animal" must walk on its elbows and knees. In recent years there has appeared the "gimp suit" in rubber which is quite nifty and is much quicker to get in and out of. However, the process and intensity of creating a full duct tape dog can't be beat. The subject below was quite flexible and thus was able to sustain his "form" for a full 2 hours. Here's the sequence:
A former puppy-in-training.
There was a promising part time pup in training here for a while, but he has since then not wanted to return for any further training. In any case, this was as far as he went when in training.
A Total RUBBERDOG Transformation
Though the 'headspace' of both trainer and 'animal' are paramount here, gear can also play a big part in this type of training. Muzzles and paws, even a tail for puppies, along with other gear such as dog masks, choke collars, and dog bowls, can be a big help. Below are a few photos of a rubber puppy we once owned and, though no longer in this family, we still remember him fondly.
For those who've been asking, here is a total transformation of the rubberpuppy.

Rubber Puppy Tail
I've had so much response to the photos of the rubber puppy tail I made as a labor of love for my rubberpup's Christmas present, and have sold a number worldwide. I am sorry to say that I can no longer make these for others. Certain materials are no longer available to me and, well, I just don't have the time anymore, either. I am very sorry for those pups and owners who've contacted me about tails for Christmas. Maybe someday I can make more.
