research question

I turn to Livejournal, which Knows All, in search of an answer to a research question:

Is it possible to put a sleeper hold on a canine? I’m looking at a model of a German Shepherd’s circulatory system, and it looks like the moral equivalent of a cartoid artery is further back in the throat than a human’s is, so I’m wondering if it’s possible to subdue a dog with a sleeper hold without compromising its air passage.

Corollary to that, of course, is how long it takes, assuming it’s possible. Somebody who knows what he’s doing can knock a human out in about ten seconds with a sleeper hold, but it’s a big damned quite-exposed vein in a human, and I’m not sure it’s as big or exposed in a dog. A big dog, in this case…
