Dogs are the one thing that ruin my runs. Either having to plan alternative routes or having to stop and walk til I am past the offending mutt. Dogs who dont stray tend to be left around the outside of the houses with the gates open. Owners dont seem to care if they come chasing after you barking and snarling. " ah they wont touch you" doest wash with me. I find it hard to stick to my pace and the stopping and starting has often almost given me problems.
I need to practice loops for a race that is coming up. There are two 3 mile circuits near me but both have a dog . I am tempted to get bangers ( like at halloween) to try and scare them off , or would I be better bringing dogbiscuits so that I can throw them and they will eventually stop running after me? My postmas has a tazer4 that he smuggled in from the USA> Would not like to have to resort to that but am not adverse to inflicting pain or fear on them
Anyone got any successful tips to share?
