Question by lady j: Has anyone ever used “Muzzle” dog pepper spray to protect yourself from dogs? How does it affect 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?
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).
