  • Can be used as a training aid

Essential Info

Whether you live in the city, where stray dogs are rife, or whether you live in a rural area, where you're more likely to come across a wild opossum or raccoon, encountering an aggressive, unknown animal can be both frightening and dangerous. But yelling or throwing something at a wild animal can be seen as potential threat and it could instinctually attack you in self-defense. You know that you need something to protect yourself and your loved ones, but pepper spray can not only blow back into your eyes and cause you harm, but it can also increase the aggression of the animal you're trying to deter.

What's Included

  • 1x - SprayShield® Animal Deterrent Spray
  • More Info

    Luckily, a solution now exists that is not only highly effective, but also safe and humane. SprayShield® Animal Deterrent Spray shoots a strong odorous stream of citronella to surprise the attacking animal. When tested with trained attack dogs, this product was found to be just as effective as 10 percent pepper spray, yet without harmful side effects. SprayShield® does not cause pain, it will not increase aggression, and it can be used indoors. In addition, it won't injure the user or onlookers if the spray is accidentally blown back into the eyes. There's no need to get close to the menacing animal since SprayShield® has a range of 10 feet!

    Ideal for dog trainers, mail carriers, or even people out walking with or without their family pet, SprayShield® uses R134a, the same propellant used in asthma inhalers. The citronella essence is a natural essential oil that has been used in many human, animal and environmental applications for thousands of years. When used as an aerosol, it poses no danger to animals or humans. The citronella solution is buffered to minimize any discomfort to the eyes.

    Fast and what I ordered. Thank you Bob
    MORGAN -- saint petersburg, FL   1/27/2014
    SMARTHOME finally sent the product I originally ordered. They did not double charge me for shipping nor did they charge for returning the wrongly shipped item. So, although I was inconvenienced, irritated by the overly cumbersome & complex return process & left in limbo regarding whether I would ever receive the product I had originally ordered or whether I would be overcharged shipping for SMARTHOME's error, SMARTHOME did ultimately produce the product as ordered. It is improbable that I will ever order from them again. Yet I am appreciative that I received the product I ordered for the price I expected to pay. They could have scammed me.

    This came quickly and is a perfect item on long walks with the dog.

    I am a Dog Trainer. I see so many people putting up a post about sprayshield saying that all they have to do is show the can of spray and the dogs starts to behave very good. Think about this, How long will your dog behave after you show him/her the can before your dog goes right back to doing what it was doing? When that happens the dog is training YOU not you training the dog. If you have to show the can to the dog you want to use it PERIOD end of story. Get the punishment done and out of the way. You only have 2 seconds to diciplyn and 2 seconds to reward your dog. That way the dog will not do the deed again after a weeks time for the rest of his life if you ar5e consistant with the punishment within 2 seconds. That is called spaciest repution education. You raise your hand to someone you really do not like and not throw a punch. Now he knows your not going to hit him. Unlike dogs they live in the moment. There is so much I can teach you all but all dogs are different. There is not one dog that is the same as the next. I have seen dogs really like the taste of sprayshield. Some dogs drink it like it is coolaid. You can not punish your dog for doing something 10 minutes after the deed is done because they have no idea why they are getting punished. They think it is just another bad hair day. I wish you all the best

    I feel much safer when walking my dog - Many of my dog walking friends carry the Spry Shield as well.
    DAWN -- hammonton, NJ   12/20/2010
    very happy with this product
    JEANNE -- prescott, AZ   12/11/2010
    Excellent service and prompt shipping.

    This product is wonderful! The Boxer Rescue Group told us about this product as we were having trouble with a recent adoptee who was attacking two of our dogs and these dogs had to have stitches. Using this product only three times produced the exact results we were looking for. We were going to have to give the dog back to the rescue group, but have now been able to keep her and she is a treasured member of our family. I have told everybody that I know about this wonderful product. One of my friends took a bottle home and used it on her dog, and it also worked. The dog was nipping at her and she sprayed once, and he quit immediately. It does not hurt them just stops them in their tracks. A wonderful product and I will continue to sing your praises everywhere.

    I've found this very useful in keeping unleashed non-agressive dogs from approaching and provoking my leashed dog. It's not going to be much a deterrent for really agressive dogs, but it's a nice harmless spray that helps keep other dogs away.
    Jan Hamilton -- Lake Worth FL   7/9/2010
    I was disappointed in this dog attack deterrent product, which I finally tried to use today when my dog on a leash was attacked by a dog not on the leash. Granted, I did not use the holster because it didn't work with all clothing. In my pocket the canister would go off from time to time due to the locking mechanism unlocking on its own. I pulled out the canister and tried to move the lock to unlock it only to find the canister was empty. Fortunately my dog was not hurt. I think a recessed mechanism would make more sense.
    LINDA -- east berne, NY   11/19/2009
    We love the Spray Animal Deterrent Spray. I works great on our two dogs. Now all we have to do is hold up the can and show it to them and they behave. Great product! ! ! !
    YANKEE -- chestnut ridge, NY   10/24/2009
    Love it. Really works weell
    RON -- birdsboro, PA   9/27/2009
    Worthless, it didn't phase my dogs in the least!
    CANDACE -- troy, NY   9/25/2009
    Works great! We recently adopted an Akita Puppy. With their reputation we thought it would be a good idea to get a personal trainer. With my husband and I now responsible for carrying on with the training, this product is invaluable. Most often, now, all the pup needs to do to behave is SEE the bottle.
    KAREN -- reno, NV   9/17/2009
    I like that it will deter aggressive animals without harm. We must remember it is not the animals fault for that type of behavior, but the ignorance of their owner!
    AMANDA S. -- canton, GA   9/13/2009
    Excellent product, stops severe destructive behaviors.
    LINDSAY -- webster, TX   7/20/2009
    The spray works great. Thanks!
    HEATHER -- camarillo, CA   7/1/2009
    Works great as a quick distraction for unwanted behavior.
    frances -- pollock pines, CA.   4/30/2009
    I was close to rehoming my german shepherd because of her uncontrolable aggressivness towards other dogs. Training classes did no good. I had a canister of SprayShield I'd purchased to ward off other dogs. My last attempt before rehoming my dog was to use the Sprayshield on HER! Now all I have to do to is make a pishing noise like the spray makes and she stops, if she gets really anxious, I show her the canister! She is now my forever dog, I can't tell you what a blessing this is.
    KATHLEEN M. -- tucson, AZ   4/15/2009
    I think this is a wonderful product - it can stop aggressive dogs without hurting anyone.
