Question by lady j: Has ” dog to ? How does it the dog?
When walking my dog I sometimes fear another dog attacking mine. Would the Muzzle Pepper Spray be a good way to protect me and my dog?

Best answer:

Answer by Shanna
I always carry pepper spray when I am out walking my dogs. Just in case another dog decides to attack one of mine I don’t want to stand there helpless. I think pepper spray is a great defense weapon because it won’t give the dog any long term injuries but it will stop any attack immediately. I have never had to use it, but I am glad I have it.
Just remember, pepper spray doesn’t just effect the dog you spray it on, it affects everyone in a small radius around you so you will get some, your dog will get some; it isn’t fatal but it is very painful so only use it if absolutely necessary.

17 month old personal protection dog Xena being trained to deal with multiple aggressors. The muzzle allowing repeated strikes, to ‘bad guys’ not wearing protection, before the muzzle is slipped off to allow the bite on the final ‘bad guy’ wearing a covert sleeve. My thanks as always to Damian O’Donnell, Ron Stanley, Colin Huskins, Ian Walshaw, John Davidson, Kev Roper and Graeme Jones (the final bad guy in this clip).

    Great routine. Its neccesary to rain with a hidden sleeve because a lot of dogs get confused if they are suppose to bite and dont see a classic sleeve.

    Nice to see training n the muzzle and then the use of the hidden sleeve. the line work during the muzzle work can be improved. keep the drag even and a bit tout and don’t pull the dog back to you at the 19 second mark. Just saw she is a PPD wow, most police k9s don’t do as well in the muzzle.

    Glad you liked the video, training and dog. Thanks for your advice, you’re absolutely correct. I’ve learned a bit more since then. Glad you like Xena’s work, she was only 17 months old at the time that video was made. She’s now 3.5 years old and matured nice. She’s still 100mph everywhere though. ha. Winning this year’s UK working/service dog of the year with a 3 year old PPD bitch, has made the hard work worthwhile. Thanks again.

    Great video and wonderful training job! What type of muzzle are you using? I’m going to start muzzle training my GSD and want to know which one is best for that type of work.

    You would want to be really careful about pepper spraying a dog. As it stands, pepper spray is a ‘defensive weapon’, but its a weapon all the same. There is a fine line to define self defence, and if you use it, you could end up charged with assault, animal cruelty, or something. There was a person on here ages ago, that was walking their doberman in a dog park, which is a legal off leash area, and someone who was walking their small dog, got paniky and pepper sprayed the dobe, and accidentally got a little child standing nearby as well. I have a dog whistle that i take with me on my walks, and it seems to be effective, one good long blast, and it distracts the attacking dog. But i wouldnt recommend pepper spray, have you ever been sprayed? Its nasty stuff, and i wouldnt like anything to get it, even if they are attacking my dog.
