Unleashed dogs charge ours AGAIN

It's getting old. Just got to a CG and set up. It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday so we took the 2 dogs for a leashed walk. Sure enough some entitled clowns have their dogs out and here they come, barking, growling and coming hard.
I got a little ugly about it but enough is enough. This is the third time in the last 2 campgrounds The next one is going to get sprayed with something organic but effective. It seems there are lots of legal ways that are harsher but it's not the dogs fault their owners are irresponsible.

Maybe it's the dog's owners who need spraying.

Make them smell like skunk. The owners won't like that.

My girl has been attacked by off-leash dogs 3 tiles. I carry a 5' long maple walking stick and will (and have) used it to defend my dog. I would rather use the stick on the dog's owner, but I would get in trouble for that. When we were in Port O'Conner for the winter a few years back, they had no leash requirements and there were way too many loose dogs. I carried my walking stick, and a pepper spray can. A local deputy asked me if I had a carry license, which I do. He told me to carry the pistol and shoot the dog if it attacked me or my dog. I do not want to seriously injure an animal. All I ask is for the dog owner to be responsible and keep his animal under control.

Hopefully you get lucky and the dog owner doesnít come after you either physically or legally. Bashing a dog with a baseball bat will very likely earn you an arrest for cruelty to animals. That charge seldom earns sympathy or leniency from judges or juries. Unless the charging dog truly is a threat to do you great bodily harm (think pit bulls, Rottweilers and similar large attack breeds ) you might win the battle with your ball bat but the war you very well might ultimately lose would likely just be starting.

There is no reason you should have to purchase something to keep dogs off leash from attacking your dogs. This is highly rated PetSafe Spray Shield Citronella Spray on Google search.

I carry one of these. I've never had to use it, but just the sounds scares the crap out of my dog and cat.

We live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range and wild animals have been known to come into our neighborhood, so I carry a Sabre Pepper Gel in a belt holster.

I've never had to use it, but wouldn't hesitate to do so on a loose dog coming after me or my dog wherever we might be.

We use a boat horn/klaxon to drive away unwanted dogs and of course it alerts the neighbors.

If there are people that are just letting their dogs run around the campground unleashed, then they need to be corrected or kicked out.
I have a Bull Terrier and I always have him leashed. I've had dog owners frantically run over when their unleashed dog approaches mine. My dog is very friendly but I caution them to keep there dog on a leash or corralled.
I also pick up after him as well... another pet peeve of mine when it comes to some dog owners.

You need a new attorney. You don't have to endure minor bodily harm to legally defend yourself or others. And Labs attack alot more than Rotts. The breed has little to do with aggression. Both of my Rotts were very well mannered because they were both very well trained from a very early age. If you have a baseball bat cocked and the dog gets within striking range of said bat, regardless of breed, swing away, you have been threatened.
