comment What is the best way to break up a fight among dogs on a sled line?
Don't have sled dogs, but it does work on my 2 barn dogs. They're well-fed and not overly food motivated, but it distracts them enough to break up a fight. Truth be told, I do have to wave it around a bit to get their attention, which may fall under the "distraction' idea.

The 5th option there opened up a world of possibilities. I'm definately going to check out the Tonto trail in particular.
