pepper spray

Have any of you gotten pepper spray or anything else to ward off attacks from other dogs? If so, what kind did you get and where did you purchase it? I have been reading too much about small dogs getting attacked and have decided that carrying something to protect my dog will give me some piece of mind. Any suggestions or opinions will be welcome. Thanks.

I believe that several forum members carry Halt dog repellent with them when they are walking or in areas where a dog attack could happen. I have never used it, but in past years it would have come in handy, as both Bailey and Tyler have had encounters with big dogs and Bailey actually developed fear aggression toward them because of it. I, personally, have a LTC mace but would never use it on a dog, only a human, if absolutely necessary. Thankfully, I've never had to use it!

Thanks Mary - I just ordered some HALT from Amazon. Hope I never need it.

Yep. That's what we have. Fortunately, like umbrellas, having it seems to have kept us from needing it!

I have pepper spray on my key chain. I bought it at one of those spy stores. I have had to use it. A few years ago, I was walking my lab in my neighborhood and a loose dog came up to us and went for my lab and started biting him! I peppered it - at the same time a car was driving by, the car pulled up and the occupants rolled down the window and yelled "get in!" my dog and I didnt hesitate and jumped into the car (with total strangers no less)! They drove us home and I called animal control on the dog. Turned out it belonged to a kid in the area.

The ones meant for dogs are too big for a key chain, and the spray has more "reach". The idea is that you can spray the dog when it is still far enough away that it can't harm your dog.
