It’s exceedingly rare for coyotes to attack humans but they will take mid-size or small dogs or cats or attack geriatric large dogs.
Pitbulls have stronger bites but are not as naturally aggressive as coyotes and less likely to initiate an attack. A pitbull’s bite is almost twice as powerful as a coyote. A Pitbulls bite force is 235 PSI. A coyote bite is 135 PSI, what you’d expect from a medium-sized dog.
Rottweilers are larger and more powerful than coyotes and are physically capable of killing a single coyote. However, if a single Rottweiler is attacked by a pair or pack of coyotes, the coyotes will have the advantage. As wild animals, coyotes also have stronger survival and hunting instincts.

Should you be scared if your dog barks at a coyote? Dogs can smell and communicate with wildlife, including coyotes, via howling, barking, whimpering, sniffing, eye contact, and body language.

Coyote vests are made for small dogs and have a Kevlar neck collar armed with 1-inch spikes and spikes down the back, making it hard for coyotes to get a bite. If you have a small dog, these vests may provide good protection in coyote country.
