Hi all,

We were out at a pet shop about a month ago and found a spray for dogs called pet corrector not sure if anyone has heard about this ?

It's mainly to stop your dog from Unnecessary barking ,pinching food from other pets in the home, jumping up on visitors which i know myslef it can be a pain in the a$$ if a dog keeps jumping up , sitting on furniture you do not want them on etc....

Anyway mika and poppy will be out playing and sometimes mika pushes it just a bit too far being quiet rough with poppy so we use pet corrector its a quick blast of Compressed air which you point above the head from quiet a distance , this automatically stops them which is great we also found it great for stopping mika from pulling on the lead short blast and she slows down and walks your pace. Also she tends to run off like a race dog when we are on the beach and it takes a whileto get her back so we give another short blast she comes back which is great.

Just letting you guys know about this product if you have not already heard about it , i have found it very helpful.

Just got some of this from PaH I think, is it in a red aerosol ?

It's got really good reviews all over, apparently mimics the hiss of wild animals examples snakes, geese, swans etc... Will let you all know if it works on Chloe's dog aggressiveness..... Watch this space

It's worked really good on both Chloe and Blake today...

Blake normally barks and howls in his crate if put in during the day, however today after two blasts of this with the command quiet he went to sleep. Tonight he has gone in the crate, told quiet and gone straight to sleep..

Chloe stopped jumping up after just one blast, but it is early days

I found this info about "Pet Corrector" http://petshops.about.com/od/PetSupplies/gr/Dog-Training-Aid-Pet-Corrector.htm
The Brainchild of a Dog Trainer
The Pet Corrector is manufactured by the Company of Animals, a United Kingdom company founded by leading animal psychologist and dog training expert Dr. Roger Mugford that designs and makes a number of pet training and behavior products, including the HALTI®️ head collar for dogs.
The Pet Corrector aids in eliminating such bad doggie behavior as jumping, stealing, chasing cars (and people), climbing on off-limits furniture or just plain anti-social animal antics.

I got one here in New Zealand so it should definately be in oz somewhere.

I bought it to take on walks with me and don't no what I'd do without it. I was having real problems with walking past two seperate properties on our route, both with Labradors that would rush and lunge at the gate and fence trying to attack my dogs. My big dog Bull would go crazy lunging back and just about pull me over. It didnt take long to sort him out as well as the labs though as the Pet Corrector lets out such a loud blast it gave the labradors a hell a fright too. Bull walks past quietly now and the labs are no longer a problem - the black stands back at a distance to bark and the golden one completely retreats when it sees us and doesnt bark at all.

I was at the local dog park last year and Henry got attacked by a Rottweiler - it just rushed up and grabed a hold of his head but luckily I was able to blast the Corrector at it and it let go but still left 3 puncture wounds. It could have been alot worse though - I think its worth while for every dog owner to carry one on them.

Unfortunately yes so I wouldnt use it for everything or perhaps as a last resort for minor things like jumping up - it certainly puts a stop to unwanted behaviours though. It doesnt hurt them just startles them as it lets our a real 'woosh' of compressed air.

I only carry mine on me for walks and havent had to use it much, but its highly useful to stop to any aggression immediately. It just worries me that if Henry was attacked by another dog again while out walking he would get the blame because of his breed. My friends German Shepherd 'Angus' and Bull don't particually like each other as they are both fairly dominant males, but get on fine now after I blasted it at Angus when he had a go at Bull!

any type of loud noise will startle your dog i made a small sounder, with pp3 battery and old sounder out of an alarm box. it helped when beau would not stop jumping up at every one, mind you any type scary sound should only be used when all other things fail.

the wife gives of a load scream when he would not keep of the leather settee worked fine.

I just bought a can of this from PAH. i bought it mainly to carry in my pocket in case we get any more incidents of stray dogs jumping out at us. However, Densil gets very noisy and agitated when the postmen and dustmen come as the layout of our house means he can see and hear them before they are even at the gate. He can get into our front window as the sill is low and he is actually clawing at the glass, which thankfully is double glazed! I sprayed it yesterday when he was having a go at the dustmen and said "quiet". he immediately stopped and turned at looked me as if to say "what on earth was that?" so I rewarded him with a treat. Just waiting for the post to arrive today to try it again.

I dont believe in punishment for natural behaviour. I think it is better to train them not to bark by teaching them to only bark on command.Sprays or shaker cans can make them nervous.

I would also be worried it would make them fearful, I would rather put in the hard work of training.Big Grin

It is only meant to be used for extreme behaviour and not things which you can train against. Unfortunately Densil knows well before I do that the postman/dustmen are on their way and by the time I have reached him he has already started to react and it does get exteme - as I said he is clawing at the window, so I only intend to use it initially to stop him doing it and once he has learned then the command to be quiet should be enough.
