Yes pepper spray can stop a dog but you need to spray the dog in the nose as well as the eyes to stop them as the dog has a very sensitive nose and the pepper spray will affect their smelling and they will stop and go away.

As long as pepper spray is washed off a dogs or humans face within 30 minutes or so of it being sprayed on them then there's little chance of permanent damage being done.

However if someone or a dog is attacking me then I really don't care if I cause permanent damage to that persons eyes or health.

The dog and humans choose to do the attacking and it's either pepper spray in the face or the person gets shot and killed.

It could be possible for a dog to go blind or a human to go blind from pepper spray if not washed off in time but that's rare.

Police Magnum Pepper Spray is good strong Pepper Spray that works on dogs, humans and other vicious animals.

I've used Police Magnum Pepper Spray on a dog before and it stopped them from trying to attack me and the dogs eyes were even burning as well as their nose.

That dog never comes near me anymore when I walk by him in town.

He goes away when he sees me and doesn't grow or bark at me anymore.

I've also used it on guy that was trying to snatch a ladies purse and I gave the old lady her own Pepper Spray for her protection and showed her how to use it.

You only use pepper spray if someone is actually trying to attack you and you cannot get away.

Or if a dog is trying to attack you then you can and should use some pepper spray but spray their nose instead of the dogs eyes as the dogs have a very sensitive nose and when pepper sprayed they lose their sense of smell for awhile and it hurts them temporarily.

The dog will then flee or at least stay away from you.

Pepper Spray is pretty effective at stopping a dog from attacking at least temporarily for you to get away.

Be sure to spray the pepper spray into the dogs eyes and nose as well.
