Lol thats why I have a GSD! We arent allowed to carry anything here, I hope they change the laws someday. Ill protect my dog from other dogs, but walking around with a GSD is very proactive when it comes to people.

I'm getting my concealed carry soon and at that point I will likely carry a small .380 or one of the new 9mm minis like a Walther PPS. I want it more for self-defense against criminals and wild animals while fishing than a vicious dog attacking myself or my dog but, I imagine it would be equally effective against both.

With the strict gun laws we have here - that means no one has a gun, except the bad guys LOL! (not exactly true, but you get my drift!)

I carry nothing but my loud obnoxious self and have never had to worry.
I was thinking the exact same thing. I don't carry anything extra on my walks.

Being law enforcement I carry a firearm most places I go. whether I have it on me when im walking the dog depends on what im doing (I wont carry it specifically to walk the dog) but if I dont have that I carry a knife.

Step 1: make sure your dog is not gun shy, and if he is, change that.
Step 2: buy a cap-gun from the dollar store, but MUST have the bright-orange tip to show it is a toy.
Step 3: use on attacking dogs. Fire into the air so people don't think you're about to shoot it. Your dogs will stay buy your side, attacking dog takes off. It works like a charm!

Problem with a cap (or a blank) is, what do you do when the noise doesn't stop the dog (or person!)? Generally, I suggest that you might start with "Our Father............!"



A few dogs will not stop/run! Noise just pisses them off!

OI do carry a spray but two trainers highly recommended those airhorns ( compressed air) that people use at football games etc for when dogs start to get into a fight.

(yes, I know this thread is almost a year old....)

Why all the choices of different things, but not an actual gun?

I carry a gun (yes, a real one) virtually everywhere I go (I just renewed my CHL). Mostly for use against the 2 legged variety.

I doubt I would shoot a dog that was attacking me away from my own property (on my property, I follow the "3 S rule"). I have been around large dogs (including most of the supposed "aggressive" breeds) my whole life - I just don't get intimidated by them.
