I am gravely disappointed.  Again, you have made me release my dog of war.

I'd prefer a doggo-drone backpack with rapid-fire weaponry. The hawks will back off if Foo-Foo Fluffs blasts a few of them out of the sky.

This might be the best google image search I've ever done.

It's made using three layers of Kevlar

I expected it to be quite pricey, and it sort of is - $100 USD.

See, I thought people were stealing little dogs, like Lady Gaga's dog.

Read the article and it looks like birds of prey have realized that major parks in cities are like the KC beef stockades.  Endless food.

Do they make these for crotchfruit? I got a baby shower coming up.

I've got a nine pounds soaking wet dog and have red tail hawks nesting in close proximity to my home so I'm getting a kick out of this thread.

If your dog is considered prey by a bird, perhaps you need a better dog.

Go big or go home.

My smallest dog is 16 lbs and I have know doubts that any hawk that gets near ground level will be repelled promptly.  However, there are two tiny dogs that wander around the cul-de-sac; plus cats, who in general think they are apex predators.  So far the resident hawk has stuck with moles and rats.  If it's looking for a challenge, we have many, many squirrels.

I saw a giant bird of some sort just the other day at my local canyon.

I thought I saw a vulture but I wasn't sure as I've never seen one in the city before.

I leashed by 30lb dogs immediately and saw a couple on the road across the creek fussing with their stroller because of this bird.

It was enormous.

 I had a falcon try to mess with my 120lb Akita (RIP). I remember thinking, "this is the dumbest bird I've ever seen." If it got too serious the dog would've crunched it's body until death and then dropped it at my feet as a gift.

Thankfully that never happened except with squirrels, he loved bringing me squirrels. But this falcon seemed to be trolling. He knew he couldn't lift or kill my dog but he kept showing up anyway, which pissed me off over time. I was this close to shooting it, but it's not my style.
