I just got some pepper spray to carry with me when I go on walks with or without Bella. We just had a random stabbing here on a jogger for no reason but pure thrill for the punks who did it. They believe it was a local gang.
Anyways, I also have bought some citronella type stuff I picked up at petsmart that works on aggressive dogs but it does state it is very limited in effectiveness if the dog is highly aggressive. Now I know pepper spray and mace both work on humans but which is most effective on a dog? Pepper or mace or both. There is a leash law where I live but once in a great while you get a loose dog on the run and you never know how the dogs will react to eachother. I just want to be able to stop the loose dog if it shows aggressive behavior approaching me. I forget what the mail people carry with them. I think its mace? My last dog was highly human aggressive towards strangers so I never had to worry about protection with him near me. Plus I would carry a knife as well. I honestly wish I didn't have to carry anything with me but some poop bags. But in the city when your a female who likes to walk early morning hours or at night when it is still dark I have no choice but to. Thanks for any input :)

if your looking for non lethal protection against people a high decible sound device is good if you get the one mad for bears and I wouldnt recommend any mace except bear mace and the gel mace .. gel mace is horrific ... horrific :) I've self tested several mace products :"( gotta know what it does or ya dont know how to use it.. Gel and Bear mace burns more IMO than other products and gel mace is gel its sticky slimy, OMG.. Bear mace is just pure fire.......

Myself I prefer the .45 and make my day law. ;)

Bear Spray, ASP, Mace

Bear Mace Pepper Spray - Wilderness Survival Tool

outdoor and wilderness type stores would have them, but in Boston, (chuckles) you may have to order from online.. Your right though, in the metros where "distinct" people act like animals.. LOL better order a couple of cans. ;) hahahaha Dallas was the same way, after Katrina I had some Ghetto superstar role up on me to steel Hooch, LOL Hooch was police trained and knew the guy had crack and gun before the nukklehead who had it on him realized he was too close and now he was fkd.. LOL That was his freebee, after that he and his NewOreleans crew avoiding me at all costs; though they did try to kick my door in and got gaffled by Hooch, ironic cause they were trying to steel him while I was at work, as they pulled the door shut to save their life and got blood all over my town house front porch, and NO one saw or said anything ever...... Like moses divided the red sea, was the case with me in ghetto ;) ... Bear mace will fk someones whole world up great for crowds too ;) If I was trying to evacuate I'd wear a gas mask and pump a :poop: load of bear mace in the vicinity of me.. LOL :D Best of wishes ;)

I don't want to commit crime just ward off the thugs or stray dog that may come and get me lol! Will the pepper spray still work though? It is police issued spray so I'm thinking its strong :)

Committing a crime? :confused:

Bear Mace will clear thugs; were I've been sprayed by police mace, gotta test yourself first ;) and its really not that bad, unless you get the gel which is also for riot control, your not washing that sht off you'll have to go get first aid.. and its plenty legal everywhere.. I noticed some mace products are illegal in Boston.. Jeese.. No guns, no mace, here take my rights and give me what you think I should have..

JFYI I had a State Lt of the Highway Patrol, tell me that a flare gun is ideal cause its a saftey device you can use for self defense ;)

Massachusetts sucks! We can't even buy fireworks for cripe sakes! And if I use mace or pepper spray without an FID card I could get in trouble. Ridiculous! :hammer:

keep in mind if you use it, it could get on Bella's eyes when your trying to get it on the attacker. Also, a knife is totally a weapon that gets used against you, so unless you have training a knife could cause more problems. As far as the FID card, its no big deal. I had one, and its really for safety and making sure lunatics don't go out to get mace and go after an ex boyfriend or attack someone in the heat of the moment. Its more of a way to say, OK your a good person, you want to be protected, here you go, have fun. Not a expensive or long process either. And you can get it just for mace, not for guns which is faster and easier.

In a lot of states, you're actually obligated to retreat rather than defend yourself w/ a weapon, even in your own home. Here in NY, you have to retreat unless you're on your own property. Otherwise, your self defense is assault.
Being an old fashioned sort, I have an old Louisville Slugger in the front hall. A few years back, I heard shouting outside, and assumed it was kids playing around, turned out to be an old woman being mugged, I felt awful that I hadn't looked and maybe be able to help, that's when I put the bat there. A couple of times I've had occasion to speak to people while holding it...The implication really can't be missed, 'no stop it or else' is required.

My daughter reads meters for a gas company and is given a product called Halt! Dog Repellent by her employer.

She had to use it for the first time last summer on a large dog who was chained inside it's owner's garage. She didn't know the dog was there, so it surprised her when it came running out of the garage and snapped the chain. She sprayed it in the face, but missed the eyes and the dog turned a couple of circles and charged her again.This time she sprayed it right in the eyes and the dog stopped long enough for her to run to her car.

It comes in a palm sized canister that says it's effective range is 10 feet. I think it might come in a larger canister that might spray a bit further, but she likes the small one so she can keep it right in her pocket.

I will try my best to avoid bellas eyes but if I am getting attacked that will be the last thing on my mind. Sounds terrible to say that but its the truth. Hopefully if she is with me the attacker will think twice before touching me. I Have some training with knives and guns. Used to go to the shooting range when I was a kid with my grand dad. I took lessons in a later part of my life as well. I really don't want to carry a knife let alone a gun. I jog alot so I don't want a big clunky piece of metal lugging around in a pocket. I go out in early mornings sometimes. Alot in the summer actually and want the pepper spray or mace. Mentally it makes me feel more secure having something with me. I also took some self defense classes awhile back to. I don't live in the heart of Boston but there are alot of the MS-13 gangs amongst others in the cities surrounding boston. Its just getting bad everywhere these days. We need to go back to the old wild west days when everyone was strapped lol! JK. :D

Ames I'm a nature nut and love to hike in woods. We have alot of conservation land around my area. Thing is, is you never know who's in there. I am always aware of my surroundings though and never walk with headphones on. That's when a dog, pepper spray, and a knife comes in handy. Such a shame we have to worry about violence just trying to take a peaceful walk or jog :(
