P-421 Canine Persuader is a robotic replica of a Poodle developed by Santa at UNITY for use by the field agents as a way of distracting guard dogs. The item appears only in the original game. A related piece of equipment, Angry Kitty, that shares certain similarities with the Persuader appears in the second installment of the series.
The poodle is activated by extending its tail and then placed on the ground. It will then seek out a suitable target if placed within a certain distance from it. Once it is close enough, it will release powerful pheromones that will distract the guard dog, thus allowing the agent to slip by without causing a disturbance. The persuader can't be reused after being activated.

- The persuader is of limited use since there are only very few occasions where to use it.
