personally i think the best way to catch a non-people dog is with another dog. maybe you can try to get a good, social shelter dog to ride-along. they may be be more likely to interact with the "bait" dog and then use your throw net or whatever you can from there. good luck

Lots and lots of good suggestions. Any luck yet?

I was able to catch one in a trap friday. The other one is still running loose and people in this ritzy neighborhood are upset. The little Terrier mix dog is not hurting anyone but people want it caught.

Good job.
Dont you just love how the citizens think we have speacial powers to capture an animal. We have had our share of "why cant you get the dog", Or "you are not doing youre job" Like we have a magic flute. Oh well one out of two so far is great.
I love the idea of the trash can trap, way to cool!!! I have also got some great ideas from the other suggestions, that is why I love this site.

I have used a female in heat to catch un-neutered street dogs before. Put the bitch in the trap and snare the horndog when he comes to investigate.
I have one friend who caught 5 street dogs in one day using this method.

Now if I could find a Pootch in heat that might work.

Unfortunately, I don't have any real good suggestions for you because if I did I wouldn't be having the same problem with a Blue Healer. For the last 3 weeks I keep getting calls on this dog, but I have been unable to catch him. I can get to within 10 feet, but not close enough to snare him. I thought I had him one day, because I had him cornered in a backyard; however, he found a hole in the fence and was gone. This dog is making me look bad, and it's becoming laughable at this point.

Hey, one out of two is .500, in baseball that gets you in the hall of fame !

BTW, just out of curiosity what finally worked for you ?
