I haven't heard of a Taser killing a dog yet, but it might be that I'm just not listening hard enough.

I have heard it has had lethal effects on humans, but the majority of cases involve suspects w/ heart conditions and other health problems prior to being "tazed"

I like NDD's bomb blanket idea. I'd just hate it if chomper was keen and got loose only to get a mouth full of tactical ass!

Cattle prods are always fun. Especially on city folk. Had a friend that was always touching the fence, took the prod, placed it on the wire to see if the current was enough to give him a jolt. It was. I grew up on a cattle farm in Missouri, I've seen and done worse.

As a city boy, I just wanted to thank you for not bringing that thing along with your AR to our shoot!

Besides it seems that you're an honorary redneck.

Honorary I'll gladly accept, although I claim no true creds - no matter what my wife thinks!

(Tasers)...
While they claim their product isn't designed to be used on animals, there are other reports that it works effectively againt them.


***************
It might work just fine, and in a lot of situations a Taser would be great. But a raid is not one of those places for two reasons:

1. Tasers occasionally fail. One of my friends in a Florida dept. had his fail (ctg. popped out or somesuch; don't recall exactly) and one of his deputies ended up having to shoot the guy instead.

2. If you're busy operating the Taser whilst the subject is shooting you, the dog has done it's job. They are not "fire and forget".

Similar to other posts here, 9mm and 5.56 just do not incapacitate a determined dog quickly enough, IME. Even half a mag of hollowpoints from a canned MP5 take awhile. Pity you cannot shoot the jerks who deploy these poor critters. And even buckshot will sing right through a wall, etc.

I would suggest 12-ga. *frangible* slug. Total energy dump and minimal risk of overpenetration. Many of the common Breaching slugs (like AVON) will work, and have the advantage that if someone pops up firing at you, it'll work on them as well.
FWIW...
