    Bottle rockets work great if you live in the country.

    I don't go straight to killing dogs if they are friendly and just show up. If they are clearly after something of mine then absolutely, I don't give second chances. Otherwise, paint ball gun works nicely, can also freeze the paintballs first for a little more bang for the buck. If it's just somebody's dog that got out or was let out it's a nice reminder to the owner to keep them home when that messy, painty dog gets home.

    I prefer the wrist rocket for the local dogs it adds a little difficulty. But they yelp and haul *ss when they get hit with a lemon drop it only takes once or twice before they start not liking our yard
