Spray Shield Rocks! by S. Mackay04/21/2008
As a dog trainer and kennel owner, all our employees are required to have this spray on their belt. It's a great deterrent and much safer than pepper spray and mace. No license required. The citronella which is the primary ingredient, simply tastes bad and overwhelms the senses. While no one product will stop an agitated dog 100%, I have had good luck with this product and I take it personally on my walks with my dogs and suggest it to my clients. It's a great product and the price is right.
Harmless Deterrent Spray by tsangkyi01/08/2012
Having purchased "Halt" pepper spray, the deterrent provided to mail carriers, I refrain from using it because I don't want to cause discomfort to errant dogs. Instead I continue to rely on Sprayshield because it is effective and non-injurious--all good.

Great for stray dog encounters by A. Williams08/12/2008
I keep this with me when I walk my dog. Whenever we encounter a stray dog and I'm concerned about whether it's friendly or not, I just use this product to scare the stray dog away. I think they dislike the sound of the compressed air the most. They never get close enough to actually encounter the spray itself. Works great. Just wish it lasted longer.
WORTH EVERY PENNY by KATHY07/15/2008
This is the best device to use to help control barking. Use the element of surprise and have it ready every chance you anticipate your dog will bark. Works like a charm.
AWESOME SAFE AND EFFECTIVE PRODUCT by Bassetdriver from Northern Illinois08/08/2012
This is a great product to use to defuse mild to moderate aggression in your dogs. It does not inflict pain, it is safe and trust me.... the dogs do not like either the sound or smell of the citronella. We have one guy who will mellow out as soon as he sees the can. If you have multiple dogs in your home who occassionally get into a scuffle or if you have a dog who is exhbiting aggressive tendancies such as growling, etc- try this. It is amazing what a short blast will do. You will be please with the result
Great product by Scorpiocs01/30/2009
This spray really works! Mmy Labrador retriever and I have had many bad encounters with stray dogs. It is amazing how many people allow their aggressive dogs to roam the streets. I have used this spray on 5 occassions with great success. There was only 1 encounter (with a Siberian Husky) when the spray did not deter as I would have liked it to, but as the package states it may not work on cases where the attacking dog wants to KILL your dog. I do not go on my walks without this product, and I highly recommend you do not either.
Everything it's advertised to be by juliek06/05/2012
In one short week, it has already prevented two separate dog fights with aggressive neighborhood dogs. Easy to use, safe, humane, and does the job like none other. Congratulations on a terrific product!
this works! by sunshine04/21/2012
I bought this product 7 years ago (it was called Direct Stop then - same product) I put it in the drawer just in case of a fight - I have rescue dogs. Last month, my Shepherd and Great Dane got into a fight. They have fought previously but I've never been home to stop it. This time, I remembered the Direct Stop in the drawer. I grabbed it and pointed it at their faces and sprayed. They immediately stopped. I was entirely relieved and grateful that I had this product (and after 8 years of sitting in the drawer it still worked) - there wasn't much left that wasn't evaporated but there was enough to stop the fight IMMEDIATELY. I have since purchased 2 more and hope I never have to use them but if I do - thank goodness I know it will keep them from hurting each other. A dog fight is a terrible thing and you don't want it to happen but if it does - I know I have something on hand. Thank you for this product! (And - absolutely no harm to my dogs - no sting no problem at all).
great product by JudyB01/09/2013
We take in rescue dogs with issues. This product works great without hurting anyone. Highly recommended.
Good idea by peppermintp08/15/2012
Haven't had to use this yet but it seems like a good idea to have on hand.
Spray Shield by NayNay from Divide, CO04/19/2013
I am a professional pet care provider and am always out walking dogs. I used to carry my gun with me for protection but now I am carrying spray shield. I am currently enrolled in an in depth class to become a dog trainer and this is what they highly recommend.

Best companion on our walks by Labby Lover from Milwaukie, Oregon04/16/2013
We learned about Spray Shield from a Doggy Day care where they use it to break up any confrontations. To date I have been able to stop two pit bulls, one labridoodle, two labs, a Husky mix, and a small dog that wanted to attack my two dogs on lead. I am on my third can and will not leave home with my dogs without the Spray Shield. It does not hurt the dogs they just don't like the smell.
Not harmful to pets. by Suzanne from Orlando, Florida07/08/2011
Spray Shield seems to work on mildly aggressive dogs. We walk our dogs on lead and on occasion an unleashed dog will run up to them and I can tell a fight's about to happen. One or two blasts have stopped or prevented a fight without harming the animals.
Spray Shield by Carol from Alpine, NJ01/24/2013
I love this product. It has got to the point where if my dog is doing something bad, I just have to show him the spray and he stops immediately. It is great when I am walking him and an aggressive dog, who is off its leash and wandering the street, comes near to us. If it goes after my dog, I just spray it and it goes away. This has happened a couple of times.
