How many dogs spawn with the attack dog killstreak? Is there a set amount, or do they just spawn for X seconds?

The dogs spawn for ~60 seconds continuously. There tends to only be 4-5 dogs active at once, but when one dies another replaces it by jumping into the map somewhere else.

However, the dog mechanic is quite a bit different in Black-ops then it was in World at War. Because dogs are harder to get (11 kill streak instead of 7) they now kill in 1 bite. But instead of immediately 'knowing' the location of enemies dogs are now attracted to gunfire, making them much easier to avoid

I never realized they spawned for so long. I gues that's why they're so hard to get. – Malabarba Nov 19 '10 at 17:57
Yeah the 1 bite/kill makes them pretty damn scary as well.. Its like a chopper gunner that you can't shoot down! But as I mentioned above, you can actually hide from them in this game – Aardvark Nov 19 '10 at 18:20
Dogs bark so loud it's almost hard to miss them, and they also go down in one bullet, they themselves are never a threat factor for me. Though in the RIGHT hands, they are excellent distraction and while you are looking out frantically around, some guy stabs you in the face. – DrFish Mar 29 '11 at 6:06

The attack dogs will continuously spawn for about 60 seconds.
