I was in a training class and the trainer hung a Husky for talking (like Huskies like to do). The dog lost consciousness, peed and pooped, got blue in the gums...I left the room at that point. Didn't go back. On the other hand, I've had a couple come up the leash at me and can see where it could be useful. But, not to the point of near death. It happened to my daughter who is an ICU RN. A patient choked her (carotid, not windpipe) and she did not feel it was peaceful at all, as she lost consciousness, she was in a panic, but unable to move due to lack of blood flow. Kept thinking, though. Had to have a carotid flow study because the trauma can cause carotid micro tears like aneurysms. Remarkable bruises.
