What is the Difference between Pepper Spray and Dog Spray?

Pepper spray is one of the most commonly used personal defense products on the market today. It is made with oleoresin capsicum (OC) – a natural substance derived from the resin of chili peppers that can cause inflammation to the eyes, skin, and nose -and sprays in a stream with the ability to deter multiple attackers. These effects can temporarily incapacitate the attacker, which can provide you an opportunity to call for help or escape to safety.

SABRE pepper spray is more potent than Protector dog spray. SABRE’s Protector Dog Spray is made according to EPA guidelines and regulations containing a formulation that has the maximum heat allowed by the EPA (1.0% Major Capsaicinoinds), making it safer to use on dogs.

Why Can’t I Use My Regular Pepper Spray Against a Dog?

Dog spray is designed to temporarily incapacitate an aggressive dog by irritating its eyes, nose, and ears, without causing long-term damage if used correctly. Only pepper spray that has been approved for use on dogs by the EPA can be used to deter an attacking dog. Regular SABRE Pepper Sprays, Pepper Gels and Advanced 3-IN-1 Formulation Self-Defense Sprays have not been approved by the EPA to deter attacking animals - only Protector Dog Spray by SABRE has been approved for use as a Dog Attack Deterrent. If you wish to use a SABRE product to deter attacking dogs, you should only use SABRE Protector Dog Spray.

Does Dog Spray Actually Work?

Yes, SABRE’s Protector Dog Sprays are formulated to be safer for you, your dog, and an attacking dog. It’s designed for short-term effects that can deter the aggressive dog from attacking while also allowing the opportunity for you and your pet to get to safety or call for help. Protector Dog Spray contains 14 to 18 one-second bursts (depending on the model) to protect you against multiple aggressive dogs. They spray from 12-15 feet (depending on the model) to help keep you and your pet safe.
