You can’t outrun a dog unless the dog is either way too fat to run or maimed.
Next time, bring something to protect yourself – like mace. Then you need to call the police and report that they are terrorizing you.
If you happen to be near a public establishment like the market, then go back inside and call the police from there.
They sound like punks and are getting their kicks by terrorizing you and your overweight friend. They definitely need to be stopped, but try going about it the legal way first.
what is the best way to stop a dog fight?
I’ve started writing multiple answers to this question and keep deleting them as I change my response.
It depends on the circumstances is my final answer.
Prevention is best but in the event that a fight does occur do not under any circumstances jump between the dogs or grab up collars as both are good ways to get bit. Don’t take that personally, the dogs are in fight mode and don’t see their owner they see another threat in the heat of the moment.
I have never seen water actually work though I have herd of it working. A high pressure hose spray could potentially break the fight up.
Getting something between the dogs is always the best option if possible. Doesn’t matter what it is the point is to either restrict the dogs from continuing or at least to stop the contact long enough for them to cool down.
Many people recommend each person snagging the back legs of each dog but if you do this you need to slowly do circles to keep the dog moving on their front legs to prevent the dogs from turning around and butting you.
With a strange dog running up my opinion is that all bets are off. I would not hesitate to hit a strange dog with some mace to prevent injury to my dog.
When you get into fighting breeds such as the American Pit Bull Terrier or any other breed that will grab and hold (most dogs will release some for a better hold making them easier to pull apart) it tends to be better to get one leashed to a person or solid object and the other held and use a break stick to break them apart (this is an item that goes in the dog’s mouth behind the teeth to force them to open their mouth. Don’t worry it’s not cruel and you can YouTube proper break stick usage).
Though with the number of Pits being bred every day and the amount of people breeding that are clueless I don’t necessarily trust a random Pit to have the breed’s endless tolerance of people and use a break stick on them (a well bred Pit has the genetics for going after other dogs but never people for any reason- handlers back when dog fighting was legal were in the pits with the dogs and would kill a dog that bit a handler).
It’s all going to depend on circumstances- Are you familiar with the dogs involved and their temperaments? What kind of dogs are involved? (A soft breed may stop at a yell from the owner but a hard headed breed or a breed traditionally used as a fighting breed will likely require more) Are you willing to chance a bite? Are you in a rush to get a small dog away from a big dog or do you have two hardy breeds that you can watch for a moment to see what your options and/or opportune moments are?
I don’t think I, or anyone else really, can say what the best method is going to be without considering what’s going on.
Is that really legal?
My friend has this little Jack Russell mix dog, the dog does not bite at all, so this afternoon, her dog got sprayed repeatedly in the face with mace from a mailman who looked to be pretty old, my friend told me that she kept telling him that the dog was not going to bite him, but he just kept spraying.
Then as she was bending over to pick her dog up, he sprayed her in the face, luckily she’s ok, her eyes are still burning..
Cece my friend understands that the carrier was only trying to protect himself, but he shouldn’t have sprayed her too..
I could understand if I were a mail carrier and a little barking dog came up to me, and if I WERE NOT a dog lover, I’d freak out too!
I read somewhere that a mailman is supposed to scare a dog with their bag first, interesting.
That’s animal cruelty in my opinion.
I also read that it‘s not mace, but pepper spray, interesting
Note, my friend’s eyes are still burning 8 hours later.
Please feel free to comment, please no harsh comments.
Please no harsh comments!
No, actually what the postman did was assault. One of the things you have to be careful of when using pepper spray is not to get other people involved. That can open you up to civil as well as criminal charges. The fact that the dog was not attacking and the postal worker was in apparent violation of Post Office policies regarding the use of said spray, your friend might have a case. Also it sounds like he sprayed for quite a while. There usually is no need to do that as one good whiff of spray is enough to send most dogs running. After reading more closely it seems that the mailman used mace or tear gas not pepper spray. A shame as neither are nearly as effective as pepper spray. That could also be why the dog wasn’t fazed by it.
The fact that 8 hours later your friends eyes were still burning is a little more serious. OC spray, AKA pepper spray, is supposed to wear off after 45-60 minutes. Even Tear Gas is supposed to wear off after a few hours. If your friends eyes are still burning, she needs to go to the ER, that’s not normal. In that case she needs to get the doctor’s report and talk to a good lawyer because now the Post Office and it’s employee are liable for damages to your friend’s health. If it can be proved that the postal employee did in fact violate policy, it needs to go to court. It seems harsh, but really, that’s why policy is written the way it is to protect the postal employees and the general public from incidents just like this.
How to keep dogs safe on walks?
I am nearly bordering on being too scared to walk my two little jack russells for fear of them being attacked by another dog.
I have been through this twice already with other dogs I have owned. I nearly lost one and the other did get killed by another dog. I read it all the time in the newspaper of dogs being attacked and it really worries me.
I really love to walk my two dogs but in my neighbourhood there is not enough policing by our council for dogs that aren’t contained. Seems people just don’t care. One of my little dogs is very friendly towards other dogs and the other one isn’t.
I bought a Dazer which emits a high frequency sound to scare off other dogs but I have noticed that this only works on some dogs so isn’t guaranteed to work when I need it to.
Short of carrying a stun gun or mace (which are banned in Australia) I don’t know the best way to keep my dogs safe.
If another dog approaches I can pick up one pretty quickly but the other I would struggle with as she is slightly bigger.
Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to give me some peace of mind and protect my little ones?
Do not carry anything with chemicals (portable fire extinguisher) or loud noises (rape horn) that will not only harm the other dogs, but also your own, and probably aggravate anyone else who is in the area. The first thing I thought was a baseball bat, which shortly after I realized was too severe. A walking stick or cane is the perfect idea, and should any dogs happen to attack your own, you can quickly whack it (try not to on the head, as that can do more permanent and serious harm). When you describe the area you are in I think of two possibilities — a) you are over-exaggerating the amount of threatening dogs, or b) It is as you say, and seems like a place where a lot of aggressive stray dogs run unsupervised. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a place where THAT many dogs have been not only unfriendly, but dangerous and aggressive. Maybe this is my misunderstanding, but when you said another dog “approaches,” I’m not sure if you ALWAYS pick your dog up in this situation, but some may just be wanting to say hi, no? Either way, with the stick you don’t even have to get close enough to the dog as a stun gun, and mace is generally not a good idea, for legal and health purposes. This way, if any of these dogs really are willing to attack yours, you can whack it.. I’ve seen big pit-bulls scurry away after being kicked because they were attacking another dog, so the stick should work. Good luck.
How can i keep a dog in a apartment. File for service dog or?
Ok im a young female and i live on the bottom floor alone. I want to get a German Shepard. But our apartment has a weight limit of 25 pounds. There are other tenants who have dogs well over this limit though. I really want to get this dog for protection and companionship. I live in oregon. Is there any ways i can get around this? Like take him to be taught to be a search and rescue dog or isnt there a way to file for some type of service dog. Like i think it is called a compainion dog.
could i get a doctors note for this? For depression?
what can i do?
“You really shouldn’t rely on a dog for protection because unless they have been specially trained (in which case they also become a legal liability)”
if they are trained correctly in NO way should they be a legal liability.
and i never said i needed a service dog. Im asking what i can do in order to be able to keep the dog. I know some people with sever depression are able to keep dogs. that is what im thinking of.
Because of the line of work i am in. ( i am a escort)( and no i dont want to hear the B****ing about it i know it is not legal)
so because of the line of work i am into. People are in and out of my house and see what i have here. I have had my house broken into 3 times and robed once.
this is why i need something large and isnt going to put up with shit if i comand him properly.
When clients see this kind of dog they will know not to come in the house or pull something they should not.
oh yeah. I do not have the option to move. i live in oregon. Here in almost all apartments they require proof of income and employment to move in. and well i dont have that. I was lucky to find this place so untill im done with school i will be living here.
You can wait and move into an apartment that allows large dogs after your lease is up.
Filing a request for a service dog when you don’t really need one is not only unethical, it is probably illegal in many areas. People like you, who don’t really need a service dog but just want the kind of public access that service dogs receive for their large dogs, make life extremely difficult for people with true disabilities who genuinely DO need their service dogs but don’t have an obvious disability (such as being restricted to a wheel chair or blindness) because it makes it harder for service dogs to be accepted. Just because others in the apartment are breaking the rules doesn’t entitle you to do it too (and they could be evicted if the landlord found out).
Take a personal protection training class and carry a can of mace. Working for a vet and volunteering for a german shepherd rescue I can tell you that I’ve met plenty of GSDs who would sooner turn tail and run away than protect you in the case of an attack. You really shouldn’t rely on a dog for protection because unless they have been specially trained (in which case they also become a legal liability) there is no guarantee that the dog will actually protect you in a real life situation. Besides, predators are looking for easy targets…people who aren’t aware of their surroundings and what’s going on around them…and for that purpose a bichon frise would work just as well as a GSD (a barking dog would put you on guard, therefor you are no longer an easy target).
