How many uses in this product
Answer by ChewyJun 14, 2018
The amount of uses would differ depending on how often you use it and the amount of spray needed to correct your pet. This contains 3 ounces of product.

Can it be used on humans if attacked?
Answer by ChewyJul 30, 2020
This spray does not cause pain or injury and would not affect human behavior.

Does this product work outside ? There is a cat that poops in my mulch bed every night and my dog digs it up and snacks on it ! I want this to stop ! Thanks for any advice.
Answer by ChewyMay 21, 2020
This product can be used outside however this product is not intended to reduce negative behavior. Consider the PetSafe SSSCAT Deterrent Spray instead (Item # 140655).

Would spray deter wild animals? Mosquitoes?
Answer by ChewyMay 21, 2020
The PetSafe Spray Shield Animal Deterrent Spray will not stop all animals. It has only been tested on trained attack dogs.

Great product!

Wish I had this two weeks ago when we were attacked by an off leash dog. This product is more humane to use over pepper spray.

Stay outta trouble

I don't leave the house without SprayShield. It's about 50/50 on breaking up a really aggressive dog fight (I've had to use about 6 times over last 8 years) but always keeps that loose dog from approaching when I'm walking a "selective" or "reactive" shelter dog. Usually, just a short shot or line across the ground is enough. I wish we could send a can home with every adopter.

Love this stuff

I work at a doggy daycare where we have to have these on us at all times and I really appreciate them. To be honest whenever a fight happens my first instinct is to just grab them and pull them apart so personally, I don’t use the citronella much. I do know a dog trainer we work with who uses it ALL THE TIME though and he loves it. It does deter fights in most cases unless they’re really in a severe fight where they cannot be broken up. I would recommend using the spray first bc it’s an easy and quick way to get them to stop, and reaching in can get you very hurt. I always just end up sticking my hands in and grabbing dogs but I will tell everyone else to use the spray!!! Our trainer also uses it on the more reactive dogs bc he says it has a calming effect on them. It’s completely pet and human safe, i’ve seen this man spray himself in the face with citronella before to show people it doesn’t harm the dogs. He also likes to rub it on himself sometimes if the dogs tend to jump or nip. I would say to definitely have one of these no matter if you’re a dog owner or you go to the park or not. It can be extremely helpful.

Must Have!

Neighbors let their BIG dogs run loose, they charge at my little Jack Russells and scare them to bits. Just a little tap towards them with this repellent and no more problem. I don’t want to hurt the big guys but don’t want them to get a chance to get my Babies. I gave one of these to my elderly neighbor so she wouldn’t be afraid to check her mailbox because these same BIG dogs tried attacking her. And yes we have all called animal control, but that’s another story. We are safe because of these little canisters of citronella! Thank you.

Feeling secure to carry it with me in our neighborhood

It sprays on a longer distance than a regular pepper spray and is under higher pressure which is good. I had to use a regular pepper spray once so I can compare. The regular pepper spray was not a good experience at all. I had to come really close to reach the dogs with the stream and then My dog was all sticky and brown where she was sprayed and was miserable until I washed her with shampoo at home. Fortunately I didn’t have to use this spray in a real situation yet.But I know that it would be working much more efficiently and be safer for the dogs than a pepper spray. Definitely worth having it on me all the time for being prepared, for peace in mind. In our neighborhood there are lots of free roaming dogs.

Pet Spray Shield

I found this to be a complete waste of money. The spray lasted maybe 3 seconds and did not deter dogs.

Not Happy with product

Had to use for a moment and it lasted for about 10 seconds before it stopped.
