Dyneema vs. German Shepherd

Recommended Posts

Could an 80 lb German Shepherd chew through a  1/4" line of Dyneema? 

Asking for a friend.

10 minutes tops.  Gave a piece of 1/2" amsteel blue to my buddys malinois, did not last a day.

NO shit?  Thanks for the info.

I take this big guy back packing and when I set up camp he goes into total guard mode.  Wants to challenge and charge anything that comes near- including nearby hikers and campers.  i'm trying to figure out something other than a couple feet of small chain to keep him from getting into trouble.  But looks like a bit of chain it is.

Zip tie something he wont like along it(very light chain that he could pull and snap) or wire wrap the end.  Anything to take away the appeal.  If he's likely to learn and not try again later, soak it in bitter-yuck or something else nasty.

rub pepper all over it so he won't chew it. 

I dunno about this. I had a Lab once that kept chewing my garden hose at the bib. I bought some super hot (like 5 million scoville) sauce and slathered it on, left her out back with plenty of water in her dish and came out ten minutes later to find her licking the stuff off. Maybe German Shepherds prefer sauerkraut but Labs like it hot.

Actually, your best bet might be some small braided wire, with a nicro press at each end. You can make your own at west marine. We have a cane Corso and a ridgeback, and they won't mess with it.
