Thanks for the ideas. I am purchasing this as well. If the air horn doesn't bother them, I will have the pepper spray. I just hope I never have to use either. Now I will be very aware of what is around me. My neighbor told me today that a small dog in our neighborhood was killed last year by coyotes.

I turned around and saw a coyote running down the street towards us, probably 50 yards away. I realized there was another coyote following him. I knew we were in trouble, so I quickly ran the dogs to the front door of a neighbor, while luckily the coyotes made a turn and crossed the street cutting through another neighbor's back yard.

Just a week prior to this, I let the dogs out in our fenced in yard, at lunch time. I quickly grabbed a jacket and followed them. Both dogs were at the back fence barking like crazy. I ran out there, only to find a coyote on the other side of the fence. I started yelling and it just stayed there. I grabbed both pups and sprinted in, and the coyote just stood and watched me.

These coyotes are not afraid of people unfortunately. I am thankful for some ideas presented here. An airhorn would definitely come in handy. Might scare my dogs like crazy, but could save their lives. It is pretty sad I am afraid to take my dogs out for walks in the middle of the day.
What a drag to have to be fearful every time you go outside. Does the city try to do anything about it? When I lived at my sisters I almost bought stuff that was wolf urine I don't know if it really works .

Laurie- this was in NJ (Wall area). I have been told that there have been coyote and bobcat sightings (we have never seen either), but I never let them out at night without me there.
