Is it just me or do lots of people have their drones get attacked by dogs.

Hi, we're sure that our valued DJI Forum members would participate in this poll. Please be mindful of our environment when flying the drone to prevent the incident. May you please always have a safe flight! Cheers!

The older drones use sonic sensors in the VPS and the pulse drives animals nuts so be mindful not to fly too low over animals with VPS turned on.

I fly in an off leash area, I am sure legally I am in the grey, but if your aproachable and friendly, dog owners and dogs don't seem to mind. When dogs come by, I just bring the Quad up around 50 feet and just hover to the side not directly below, Dogs just seem curious at the flying bird like object and move on. Owner sometime want to chat and I like to be a good ambassador to our hobby. I never bring the drone down, as the dogs may chase it and a prop stride may cause injury. Also if it's busy, I never use a phone or tablet. People like privacy, this way they don't see the fpv feed and start talking about spying or peeping, stuff like that. Anyway Miro, best of luck in your situation and good and safe flights.

In my only low level 'encounter' with someone walking a dog I was hoovering about 100ft away from me. The walker was on a path that went past the drone, the dog suddenly took a run at the drone from about 30ft away so I sent the drone up quite a way, after that the dog wasn't bothered by the drone.
Since then if I see a dog getting anyway near I get the drone out of the way either up or sideways etc.
I wouldn't want a dog getting its face or eyes slashed for one thing

Thanks. BTW, that table is 70 cm high... Never measured the dog -a three years old Irish Wolfhound-, but I think he might be around 93 cm or something at the shoulder. and 90 kg... Of course I don't fly the drone when the dogs are around, but they don't seem interested anyway.

Indeed. It is a slight difference in the size and color of the cheese.

Absolutely right. I myself am rather partial to Danish Blue -or even better, Italian soft Gorgonzola -But it would be difficult for me to fly safely my drone while eating and warding the dogs off my cheesy snacks...

I feel you guys. I am a still a newbie here. I fly my drone in a city park and while some dogs tend to ignore the drone, some would follow the drone like crazy everywhere it goes. Usually I try to wait them out and I make sure there are no dogs nearby when I am landing. DJI engineers should think about some additional features or drone dlcs - perhaps a dog snack launcher would work?
