I have been hearing on teh forums about break sticks and honestly before I joined this forum I had never even heard of them let alone seen one. So to be honest we dont have one in our home but I am looking into getting a couple to keep around and to take on walks since we have had issues with off leash dogs here. I have to order on line since non of our petstores carry them but I was wondering out of everyone here who actually has one and uses them ?

Angel I have a few scattered around the house ... Just incase they are like Fire Extinguisher's here .. Keep them on hand in case of emergency. Both my kids have been taught how to use them as well. Although I am the one who handles the dog's they still know what they are and how to use them.

I have them and have used them once. Normally I run in and grab collars. The one time when I used the breaking stick, it was a fence fight where one dog had a leg hold through the mesh, and the other dog couldn't get a grip, so I only had one dog to break off.

what kind do you get sadie? I see a few different designs from plexi {which I wouldnt think strong enough } to the wooden ones and the electric ones mentioned in the above link. Showing the kids how to use is a good idea { mine arent alone with the dogs and my youngest 2 are probably too young but my daughter could learn}.

I use the wooden one's. I had to break up a fight with my finger once as a break stick. It hurt like hell and I broke a nail in the process. So that's when I went a grabbed a few of them. I like these

Yeah most people make them themselves and they are pretty easy to make if your handy with the tools. Always good to have them just in case. If you go to show's you should also take them. Even if your dog's aren't Da someone else's dog may be. So just take them with you as a back up.
