Greyhound adoptions are currently at about 1300 a year.
Minister for Agriculture Jaala Pulford told Neil the government has been looking at muzzles for about 12 months.
“I think the time has come,” Ms Pulford said.
“The evidence tells us that these are not dangerous dogs.
“From the first of January next year the requirement will be different.”
