Put a HALT on Aggressive Dogs
I've had Halt for three years after a large dog was threatening me while out walking. A few weeks ago a dog in the neighborhood no longer stayed behind his invisible fence and scared me pretty good. After that incident I start carrying my Halt again. It hooks easily on my pants and if I'm out for a short run it doesn't bother me at all.
I have to say it works just like it is supposed to. As soon as I saw the dog leave his property and start crossing the road towards me I had it out and gave him a good spray in the face. It comes out in a good straight stream so you do not have to be close. He yipped, like he didn't like it, and promptly turned around and fled the scene back to his house!!
The most annoying part was that the dog's owner saw it all and didn't even come to apologize that his dog was coming toward me being aggressive. I would have been mortified had that been my dog and I would have been so apologetic. It was at that time that I wished the spray would have smelled like skunk too so the owner could have a bit of punishment!!
I see you can find it here on Amazon.
