Description

SprayShield uses an innovative formula to interrupt dog attacks by surprising and distracting the dog with a powerful citronella scent, giving you time to escape. When sampled on trained attack dogs, SprayShield was found to be an equally effective alternative to 10% pepper spray, with none of the harmful side effects.

SprayShield is the perfect safety tool to carry with you to prevent dog attacks, whether you’re walking your dog, visiting the shelter or vet, or just jogging around the neighborhood.

Key Benefits
  • Powerful citronella spray deters low to moderately agitated dogs without increasing aggression
  • Safer alternative to pepper spray for preventing dog attacks without harmful blow-back that can incapacitate the user
  • Spray solution has been found to be extremely safe and poses no danger to animals or humans, spray interrupts a dog’s behavior and distracts the animal because of its strong spray stream and unique odor
  • Compact can with handy belt/pocket clip
  • Full can will spray up to a 10-foot stream continuously for up to 12 seconds
Precautions

HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS: May not stop all animals. SprayShield is highly effective in low to medium level aggression. However, some dogs are so strongly motivated that no known spray deterrent is effective; physical restraint is the only way to stop an attack by these animals.

Instructions
  • Shake can for 1-2 seconds.
  • Slide trigger right to activate.
  • Aim spray nozzle at the animal's nose.
  • Spray stream has a maximum reach of 10 feet. A full can will spray continuously for up to 12 seconds.
  • To lock trigger, lift red tab and slide to the left until locked. *To be most effective, the spray stream should be aimed at or near the nose of an attacking animal. Try to avoid aiming for an animal’s eyes. Before using SprayShield on an animal, the user should test the spray to become familiar with the range of spray. Citronella is the active ingredient and presents a strong odor, effectively distracting an attacking dog. The propellant in the product is flammable, and if heated, the can may explode.
  • Effectiveness: Independent sampling has shown that SprayShield is effective in controlling dogs exhibiting low to medium aggression. It should be noted, however, that while the product has matched the effectiveness of 10% pepper spray on dogs, it may not stop trained attack animals or animals with a strong motivation to attack.

  • Proper use: The first defense is observation and awareness of the area. Potentially dangerous situations should be avoided. However, if faced with an attack situation, SprayShield can be sprayed at or near the nose of the animal to distract it and allow valuable seconds for retreat to a safe place. A second or continuous spray may be used for animals who persist.

  • If the aggressive dog’s owner becomes hostile: Remain calm. The owner most often assumes that you have sprayed their pet with pepper spray. Explain that the solution in SprayShield is not pepper spray and does not cause pain to the animal. The spray contains a natural essence, citronella oil, which serves merely to distract the dog. Let the owner smell the scent and spray a small amount on your hand to demonstrate that it does not burn like pepper spray.

  • If bitten by a dog: Immediately call Animal Control to report the bite so that the dog can be checked for proper rabies vaccination. If possible, keep the dog in visual contact until an officer arrives. This will help insure that the correct animal is identified. If unable to do this, attempt to have someone else do this for you. If the bite breaks the skin, seek medical attention immediately.

FAQ

Can SprayShield be used as a training aid?

Yes. Some people use it to interrupt unwanted behavior in dogs. Once the unwanted behavior is interrupted, the dog’s attention can then be redirected.

Can SprayShield be used to defend against an attack by another human?

No. SprayShield interrupts a dog’s behavior and distracts the animal because of its strong spray stream and unique odor. It does not cause pain or injury and would not affect human behavior.

Can the spray be harmful to my pet or family?

No. The spray solution has been found to be extremely safe and poses no danger to animals or humans. The active ingredient is a natural essential oil that has been used in human, animal, and environmental applications for thousands of years. Although it can cause discomfort in certain individuals with allergies to citronella, it is considered safe for the vast majority of people and animals.

Can the spray harm the dog’s eyes?

This would be highly unlikely. The citronella solution is buffered to minimize any discomfort should it get into the eyes. However, as with any aerosol product, the spray should not be aimed directly into the eyes.

How many sprays are in a can?

A full can will spray up to a 10-foot stream continuously for up to 12 seconds. The actual number of sprays will be a direct result of how the user chooses to meter those sprays.

Is SprayShield as effective as pepper spray at stopping attacking dogs?

Yes. When sampled at the Canine Aggression Research Center, it was found to be as effective on moderately aggressive dogs as other personal defense products including 10% pepper spray solution.

What are the primary advantages of using SprayShield?

It will effectively deter low to moderately agitated dogs without increasing aggression. Other personal defense products such as pepper spray and mace have been proven to increase aggressive behavior in dogs. A second notable advantage over other spray deterrent products is the absence of harmful blow-back that can incapacitate the user and make the user even more vulnerable.

Who should use SprayShield?

SprayShield is designed to be used by kennel employees, animal control officers, utility workers, meter readers, delivery personnel, joggers, bicyclists, outdoor enthusiasts, sportsmen, or anyone who may potentially come in contact with a moderately aggressive dog.

Will SprayShield deter any attacking dog?

SprayShield has shown to be extremely effective in deterring low to medium level aggression. In many cases dogs that are strongly motivated to attack cannot be stopped without restraint. The best protection is to be aware of the presence of and avoid an encounter with a potentially dangerous dog.

    I’m at ease carrying this.

    By on

    My dog was viscously attacked by another dog on a walk.. it took 3 humans to get my dogs neck free.. thankfully my dog is thick skinned and walked away with only minor injuries.. I bought 2 of these after that and now I will not go out without this on my leash! I don’t know for sure if it were to happen again if the dog would stop, but I feel much safer now that I have at least some type of defense mechanism!

    I feel safer carrying this spray

    By on

    My dogs sometimes get overexcited or play too rough, this spray works like a champ. You don’t have to be be too close in order for the spray to reach where the situation is happening - my dogs scatter and scuffle is resolved. I have used it during playgroups at the Animal shelter where I volunteer and it did not deter those dogs from fighting (they were in too much of a frenzy). I feel safer carrying it on walks with me and my dogs. I also recommend it to other volunteers at the animal shelter.

    dog shield with citronella

    By on

    slightly disappointed to learn this has low-moderate strength and only lasts for 12 seconds. Maybe that is all we need just seems a little like false security. The citronella formula is interesting as i would not have considered that for a deterrent.

    Cannot say enough good things about this

    By on

    We encountered a situation involving our dog and another dog. One was biting the others ear (no puncture wound or bleeding thank God). We sprayed this and they immediately broke apart. No damage to either dog. A happy ending for all.

    Dog training aid

    By on

    Very effective, harmless training tool. I used it to deter unwanted dog behavior and my dog responded to it immediately. I like it because it doesn’t harm the dog just breaks their attention.

    Never walk without it.

    By on

    My 105-lb dog sometimes is dog-reactive when he’s on leash. There’s been several occasions on our walks when dogs have approached us and won’t back off. This spray is harmless—dogs just don’t like the smell. It’s better than the Pet Corrector, which scares my dog as much as the other dog. Highly recommend.

    Saved me from a dog fight

    By on

    Absolutely great! I have 2 large male dogs who sometimes can get aggressive with each other and this stopped them before anything could escalate. No ill effects no obnoxious smell. Great product.

    Lost it Before I could use it, the glue is NOT STRONG ENOUGH

    By on

    The clip is glued on with some sort of sticky clear stuff that looks like hot glue. It is NOT STRONG enough to hold the can permanently! The can came off 2 times but the glue was still sticky enough to hold on to the can, the 3rd time it came off I didn't notice and I lost it somewhere. Never got the chance to use it. I think I might be better off with real mace because it has a reliable clip. I hope someone finds it and puts it to good use.
