Default Attacked by bulldogs again

Some may remember a "bullie" thread where I mentioned 3 Old English Bulldogs who attacked my little guy while we were out for a walk . Well , they did it again and this time was a bit worse . They didn't get him but came within an inch from it . Had I not yanked him up by his leash he would have been all done . Had him hanging by his collar about 6 feet up .

Really my one and only question is , has anyone here ever actually used pepper spray on a dog ? If so how did it work ? Thinking of ordering one of these...

Not looking to start the typical pissing match about bullie breeds , just asking for personal experience with these sprays .

Use bear spray, Although normal pepper spray will work.

I have no mercy for dogs that attack.

Seems like a reasonable response as long as they are on your property or if they are running loose on public property.

Get a squirt gun or sprayer and fill 'er up with ammonia. One shot to the snout and the dog will get the message.

Why can’t you use a more permanent solution?

Funny thing is and I know I'm an idiot , but I wonder what bear spray would do to a brachycephalic type dog like the OEB's . I actually would feel bad if it killed them . That said , I'm glad I didn't have a gun . I would have shot one in particular .

The main problem with most personal sprayers is a lack of range and force. The dog can see the spray coming and dodge it if the spray is weak. And range helps a lot. You don't need a lot, just a fast spray. Higher capacity sprayers are highly regulated in most areas. I can't even have some shipped to me in Florida, have to buy it at a gun shop.
We had a couple of stray wild dogs in our neighborhood and the small units were of no use at all, no range and no force. They would just step aside the spray.

I do like this one for range and spray force, but it has some obvious dangers in use:

I don't think you need a lot of speed with OEBs, just aim and release the ammonia. OTOH, what is your dog doing that they would attack, wearing an ALABAMA collar, or what??

Ha ! He wears a camo collar . He is just waddling along minding his own business . His main offense is probably looking like this...

I wonder if you were walking a Belgian Malinois if he would be as free with his English bulldogs. I'm thinking not. These types of people drive me crazy.

The range I'd be using it at would be withing 6 feet or so . I'm able to kick or knee them off but they keep coming back at him , even when I'm holding him . Were the dogs you used it on that close ?

The owners are good people in many ways and I'm trying one last time to play as nice as I can , but this 2nd time the attack was more prolonged than the first . They are fully at fault , but I'm trying not to get the police or the association involved . I haven't heard a peep from them yet this time , it happened on Saturday and I am losing patience .
