    The biggest issue we have ever had that way was a fire where we had a 400 pound sow carry the assistant chief out the door because he was in the way of her getting out. Wish we would have had some video of that one.

    Has anyone tried using the can for a blast of water in dog's face?
    It could be a problem, but once you start hitting the halligan there's a good chance you'll hear him barking.

    I think a blast from a can would just make him more mad. Maybe a 21/2.

    I was skeptical too until I saw it work.

    Some are trained not to bark. Of course fire conditions can make dog behavior unpredictable. Human behavior too.
