#501 SprayShield Dog Deterrent Citronella Spray
SprayShield™ Animal Deterrent Citronella Spray:
Mitzi’s comments on SprayShield; "The main reason sprays work on some dogs is because of the spray action. The dog is scared off by the spray before the smell. The smell is secondary. When this product first came out they sent it to me for testing back in 1999. I liked it because it was just as effective as pepper spray on dogs but safe for the employee. I hated thinking about an employee spraying an attacking dog and worrying that the employee would be sprayed also and now suffering the effects of pepper spray or Halt. Pepper spray is an inflammatory. It causes immediate closing of the eyes, difficulty breathing, runny nose, and coughing. The duration of its effects depends on the strength of the spray but the average full effect lasts around thirty to forty-five minutes, with diminished effects lasting for hours. This and stronger sprays like Wasp or Bee sprays can cause extensive injuries to a child when the child graps hold of their pet after being sprayed. This will not happen with SprayShield. A can of SprayShield is great to have within reach in shelters, training classes, kennels, or veterinarian offices. It also easily fits into the pockets of joggers, dog walkers and family members who enjoy taking strolls around the neighborhood."
Standard Operating Procedures SPRAYSHIELD™ Animal Deterrent Spray
1) HOW TO 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 those animals that persist.
2) IF THE 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.
Remember: SprayShield and Pepper Spray are only effective against dogs with moderate to low tolerances to pain.
