Been there, done that... for free... in the military.

They had 2 Belgian Shepards (The Navy) and asked some of us (Marines... Insert intelligence jokes here) to "catch" thier dogs.

The male Belgian was HUGE (his name - Rambo) and we had to wear a double gauntlet to catch him. Even then, the pressure he applied through the gauntlet was very intense.

The female Belgian was much smaller then the male (don't remember her name.) and was trained to go after the hand instead of the arm since her mouth wasn't big enough to grab arms. Needless to say, that was probably more painful then the male.

Anyway, "catching" these types of animals can scare the shit out of you but also give you an adrenaline rush at the same time.

Except that here the dogs are catching you.

Sounds like easy money to me.

I wrote a story once about this guy who had 41 Rottweilers. The house (read: single wide trailer) stank terribly. The dogs were penned in an area smaller than my study. I shuddered to think what might happen if they were ever released all at the same time, and heck, I own a Rottweiler myself!

Great link, timeistight.
