What protection when you walk your dog?
I'm thinking of a small spray bottle filled with some liquid to spray in an attacking dog's eyes. Ammonia, pepper spray? Yesterday while on our three mile walk, a large yellow lab barked from his back yard as we kept walking. My dogs ignored him. All of a sudden he was on us snapping and growling and barking. Mine, of course, were leashed and snarling and barking. I had nothing except plastic poop bags which I rattled at him. Then he turned on me and almost bit me. I was hollering for someone to get him when a neighbor two doors down came out and called him and he left. I was shaking. Dogs were okay, but I was scared thinking what might have happened. And this was a lab. What if it was a pit bull? There are usually no loose dogs in my town, and this is only the second time this happened. The other time the owner was there and ran down and got her dog. I want something to spray in their eyes to stop them dead in their tracks. Any ideas?
