Self-defense against people is all well and good, but what about self-defense against dogs and other animals? Not all threats to man are from animals that go on two legs. Occasionally the four-legged variety pose grave dangers. .

I usually carry pepper spray for dogs when on foot, along with my firearm. It has stopped several dogs from getting too close. Unfortunately it did not work very good a few months back when I was attacked on my bicycle. I could not get to my canister, or gun. I was lucky a passing motorist tried to hit the dog giving me a chance to get away without a bite. That pretty much did it for riding the bicycle.

I did stop a charging pit bull on my own property with a PA63 about 10 years ago. Aim for their feet when charging. If you aim higher the shot will probably go high as they get closer.

I really like dogs and think most of them are "cute". I would like to think dogs like me and have gone out of my way to be respectful, considerate, and nice to them - always attempting to establish a mutual relationship of good will and trust.

I can remember when a big Doberman-shepherd mix owned by the caretaker of a neighboring industrial site attacked me, while I was on public property. The beast was allowed to chew on me for some time (seemed like forever) before the laughing owner pulled the dog off, stating "that should teach you something". Later I was attacked by a malamute cross and I can still see its huge mouth snapping at my face.

Ending with - I usually carry a plastic Sjambok while taking walks, this is in addition to a 1911. Sjamboks were originally made from some type of pachyderm hide and are sort of like a semi-rigid whip. Sjamboks where often used by those who were not permitted fire-arms by elite rulers, for self defense against humans and animals.

We have our constitution with its 2nd amendment that allows me to carry my 1911 (out of sight) and my sjambok.
