I wanted to point out something to folks here because of what I was reading in another post... Pepper spray for attacking dogs........ From personal experience, it just doesn't work on certain breeds. As a matter of fact, my boxer/pit mix smells it he starts drooling because he likes it spicy..... Most of the Dog Off pepper spray is for spaniel sized dogs and smaller. Hunting dogs are especially prone to be humbled by it due to having a keener sense of smell. Dogs bred for protection aren't always the brightest in the book, but are also immune to the more subtle ways of breaking off a dog attack. My advice? Carry a big stick, have a taser or gun handy. Used to be a rural DHL route driver with more dog stories than you can imagine. There was a reason I carried a kimber on my hip Just sayin.
