Yep, that's how it's done. I have gotten out of jams using them split a few times when it's been wet in the barnyard.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I wish he would put up the dogs before he runs over them backing up without looking.

Survival of the fittest? I long ago decided that if you start locking dogs up you will always have to keep them locked up. Mine learn to avoid moving vehicles by a wide berth. This can be reinforced by using a shock collar. One of the few great uses I've found for shock collars.
