We caught a goat with it. We haven' tried it on a dog yet. Looks like it would be good for injured geese or those dogs that will come to you but you know if you grab them they will bite you and you can't quiet get a pole on them. Range seems to be 10 feet or less. It has its uses but I wouldn't expect too much from it. I'm still waiting to see how it does on a decent sized dog. I told the supervisor that the first dog we catch that gets reclaimed by its owner I feel sorry for the owner the first time he pulls out a flashlight in front of the dog.
Hey look----that cow looks just like a Gateway box
