Protecting dogs against attacks by wolves (Canis lupus), with comparison to African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) and dholes (Cuon alpinus)

 

How do you protect your dog against wolf attacks? There are a lot of different ways from tracking the hunting area for wolves in advance and then avoid unleashing your dog in that area, to the use of a bell attached to your hunting dog. However none of these methods are sufficient as dogs still get injured and killed by wolves.

In other parts of the world, problems exist also with African wild dogs and dholes in regard to livestock.
 
In this study, five different protection harnesses have been tested for their deterring effect.
