Making an effective way to stop a dog attacking yours
By Josh Chandler

It's a big fear of most dog owners that their dog will be attacked when they are are going for a dog walking session in the public. This can be of real concern if you feel vulnerable in your area. One time when I was in Australia doing a dog sitters job for free accommodation, I came across this park which was frequented by some aggressive dogs.

I tried bringing a stick with me just in case, and I even brought with me a water pistol to see how that would work. I let the dog I was walking off the leash and then found it in trouble with some other dogs. I got the water pistol out and squirted the other dogs and they didn't like it. They would back off but then go for another go at the dog I was working as house pet sitter. This is when I brought the stick into play. I would not go to seriously hurt the dog, more so to separate the two.

The other dogs would try and bite the stick which was fine as I could then drag the dog away from the one I was caring for. It was a scary time really and I always had to be on my toes. Eventually though things would calm down and I could go back to the owners place with a dog safe in tow! Try it out next time and don't be afraid to get your hands dirty!
