Unlikely to work in real life. Professionally trained Attack, Bomb/Drug-sniffer, and Guard Dogs will ignore such distractions and stay on target. Needless to say, [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs don't expect to successfully use this trope]]. That said, {{Series/Mythbusters}} tested this one early in the show's lifespan and found out that your standard-issue guard Doberman can be distracted by raw meat for a little while, and they'll get completely obsessed over [[{{Squick}} the urine of a female dog in heat]] (Guard dogs are rarely, if ever, fixed since it makes them more docile) to the point where Tory was able to successfully complete his objective. But with even stricter training it's possible to get them to ignore these as well.

** Grant is able to stop a pissed [[TyrannosaurusRex T-Rex]] from crushing a stalled jeep (with children inside) with a flare. Unfortunately Malcolm decides he's going to do the same thing... it doesn't go as well for him. Justified in that the rex's vision is supposed to be so bad in the dark and the rain that all it could follow was the movement of the flare.
