I know of situations where wolf packs have chased after dogsledders. Conversely, I've walked within 25 yards of a wolf in the wild and he followed me just out of curiosity. Bears are generally more bothered by small dogs than big ones because they're harder to swat away.
    I agree that wolves can be vary dangerous to dogs, they are intelligent hunters. One method wolves get dogs is by one wolf running out of the woods in front of a dog and his master, once the wolf has the dogs interest the wolf runs back into the woods luring the dog away from the human, once the dog has followed the wolf into the woods the rest of the pack jumps him and its all over.
    I donít think a dog would win if it got into a fight with a cougar however I do think a big dog would discourage a cougar from attacking. Iíve seen small and big dogs stand up to things that could kill them and yet they were able to ward them off just by there ferocious attitude. Cougars have been known to attack humans and I still think theyíd be less likely to if I had a dog. The combination of a dog and human would be more discouraging than just a dog or human alone. And like I said before, at the vary least it could distract the Predator away from me. I still feel safer with a dog then by my self. Though I have to say Iíd prefer a human instead.

    Very good points, owl girl, one of the other things that wolves will do is let a female in heat go prancing around in front of dogs to lure them out of town and they (the males obviously, one of the weaknesses of the gender, not necessarily just the species..the gender) become wolf food. People often underestimate the physical prowess of wild animals. There is one caveat I still want to add though is...it depends on the dog. Unfortunately, these days most dogs can't hunt much better than we can and they're more likely to scare prey away than they are to help hunt it. Remember any animal that you or I would hunt for food is also hunted on a regular basis by those other predators and so has developed pretty keen senses of smell and hearing. A dog that is bred or trained for hunting, by all means. My favorite would still be a dog with its' own satellite phone though (Call for help Lassie, call 9-1-1, good girl Lassie, good girl,)
    some fella confronted me the other day and asked "What's your problem?" So I told him, "I don't have a problem I am a problem"

I would however worry about wolves getting my dog because they hunt in packs, but if Iím there I donít think wolves will try it. So if a predator sees me and a big brave noisy dog it will probably leave us alone where as if it just sees me alone I look a lot more week to it. Also predators like the element of surprise and considering dogs have better senses and are more alert it could warn me of the presence of a predator giving me the upper hand. And in the sad and unfortunate event the dog dos get attacked at the vary least it has distracted the Predator away from me. Plus they can hunt, keep me warm, be good company and discourage humans with ill intentions. So Iím still not convinced a dog is all that bad of an idea.
    Not to mention that if you were really in bad shape and you had to have food or die Fido would make a nice stew. Okay, before you all start jumping down my throat how many of you saw the film: "Shackleton"? Also my wife is part Cherokee and you know what they used to serve honored guests, right? Finally, we are talking about survival here, right?

    Lol yes Iím rally a girl, why? And yes I was raised in Alaska itís a beautiful place and powerful, for example today something happened in Juneau AK where I lived part of the time I was up there. Just a few second ago I got a call from my uncle saying that part of the glacier broke off and is going to flood east Juneau. And as you probably know glacier water is very very cold. Its just another reminder of how powerful nature is, even in the city. Luckily my uncle isnít in that part of Juneau. He said he felt shaking so my assumption is an earthquake broke it loose.

    If I kill the dog, after I eat him all the food will be all gone, but if he hunts I could get food over a longer span of time and not all at once which would be bad in the summer because he would rot and some would go to waist, and it would be bad in the winter because I could freeze.

    owl girl. I see that you live in Minnesota and that you must like to camp. Have you ever been to the Boundary Waters up around Ely? I have made alot of trips there in the past several years. It is some of the best camping and canoeing in the world in my opinion. bear
