Thank you everyone I appreciate all the kind words. I am so grateful my boy and I are ok. My boyfriend placed an order for pepper spray so I guess I'll be walking with that....
Next step is to teaching Chester not to jump on top of every dog and think that they are friendly. I'm still a little afraid of this and don't know if I'll be taking Chester on this walk tomorrow or the following day.

We practiced this drill at every class.

I have been lucky on our walks, but more and more neighbors are getting pits, rotties and other big dogs. The Pits down the street are really sweet and the next time they are out I plan on talking to them about having their dogs meet Sage, but some of the other big dogs I have seen out, I'm not sure about...

I believe the one I have is legal in WI (The Runner Pepper Spray for Exercising Outdoors (0.75 oz)).

It delivers a ballistic stream to improve accuracy and prevent wind blowback. The best way to describe it is similar to a small squirt gun. It comes out red.

I've read a detailed description of the effects of getting sprayed with this. I can't imagine many things being worse, other than death. It rarely does permanent damage, though.

While I do not know what is legal or not in every state, I know that where I live one of these two would be my choice for close contact protection (Stun Guns or Expandable Batons ) not any kind of spray. Of course you have to go by what is allowed where you live.

I may have to consider that. There are no restrictions on stun guns in Minnesota. Browsing on Amazon, they look inexpensive. I don't like that you have to make contact for it to work, but there are situations where it may be a better option. I don't know about the baton. I doubt that would get a dog to release it's jaws, and it could be taken and used against you by a human.

I agree. A baton seems like it wouldn't help me with the situation that happened today.

Thank you for this. I'll have to look up the laws in new jersey.
