I've never had a dog try to chase a mountain goat. They have stared at them for a while though. Nothing happened.
Porcupines are the spawn of the devil.
My previous dog got porcupined in the ass. To this day, the only thing I can come up with is the porcupine chased my dog and caught her. Although that seems unlikely.
Any theories on how my dog got porcupined in the ass are appreciated.

I have used this for over a year and it has been excellent for me. It works as advertised, seems very durable, and both the remote and collar are rechargeable. Completely changed my dogs life for the better. Before I purchased it I spent hours upon hours training her and still was never able to let her off leash (she was a stray I found in a bush on a farm in Israel - long story). I spoke to a few people that had the cheaper models you can buy from the big chain pet stores and were unhappy with them. That is why I decided to do more research and purchase something that would last.

I also have one of the Sport Dog models. It's been extremely effective. No "shock" option like was mentioned on other collars, just varying degrees of strength. It's basically meant to simulate a leash tug - sometimes a gentle nudge will do it, other times you really have to yank to get the dogs attention. It's worked wonders for my easily excitable pooch. Just be sure to pair it with an appropriate training program.
