'Biteback' dog spray

Post by JimmyRiddle »

Has anyone been issued with Biteback dog spray? Which forces? Any particular units?


I think it's a bit dodgy they only list it as 'a blend of natural oils' and keep using that phrase. Yeah, it's great it's friendly to dogs, but if it has the effect of an incapacitant spray like OC (pepper), CS or CN on PEOPLE, then you know what comes next... But nowhere does it say that it's not offensive to humans (okay, no more offensive than Fairy Liquid in a super soaker).

At least with pepper spray etc. you get a description of what the cannister contains, but with this?
