Default Long range pepper spray?



Advertise Here

We've been having a problem with dogs roaming around and trying to fight with our dogs when we walk them in the yard. They're not strays, just owned by people who don't care that they run around loose. We're constantly calling animal control and the police and it doesn't make a difference. We have the Sabre pepper spray but it only reaches out to the length of our dogs' leashes. Is there anything that's effective out to at least 30ft? Preferably something that's either cheap or reloadable so we can practice with it.

There are numerous homemade pepper spray recipes out there that’s certainly not as effective as commercial made, but loaded into one of those battery powered squirt guns made give you the desired results and the ability to practice.

Some bear sprays claim they can reach out 20'-30' - you might want to check those out. Something my dad did when we had a similar problem when I was a kid - he got a supersoaker squirt gun and a quart bottle of really cheap smelly perfume. It avoided all of the potential legal problems and it drove the dogs crazy when you hit them in the face with it 8-)

Ammonia water works about as well as anything else in one of the super soakers. If you use the soapy one and aim for the head, you'll run 'em off in short order. And you can get your thirty feet if the wind ain't too bad against you.

I can't remember the brands,but look for "stream" not "spray"..even the small key ring ones will reach out there on a calm day.(unless your dog leash is more than 6 foot,any of them should reach)

Ammonia in a battery powered squirt gun? Maybe just leave out a nice refreshing bowl of propylene glycol?

5 % ammonia water isn't going to cause permanent damage to the dogs in question, and it's going to cause enough immediate grief from the eye-burn and the smell to get 'em off the OP's dogs. Antifreeze is a slow and painful poison that will kill in a fashion that is slow and tortuous. SonOfLiberty, I don't like your suggestion much.

I understand that you might not. OTOH, when my children were small they got chased by some unruly pitbulls 1 one which I had to shoot. The other three still continued to come into my yard(my yard was fenced with a 4' tall chain link and posted with no trespassing signs), same owner as the first, so I "accidentally" left some out and the problem was solved. A better solution would have been if I could have shot the owner or if animal control had done their job. Sometimes bad solutions are our only real choices.

What if one of the kids drank that "kool aid"?
Rationalizing bad choices is another bad choice.

You know, we should never have let the ladies talk us into outlawing the old Code Duello. Given your experience, I'll not criticize. A man does what he's gotta do to protect the kids.

Go buy you a new shovel handle. When an aggressive dog runs up, knock the living **** out of them. If they don't run off and keep coming back for more, that dog needs to be put down. Give the owner ONE courtesy visit. After that, don't call the cops, don't contact the neighbor, just do what needs to be done in quiet. The best kept secret is the one you keep to yourself.

How does a neighborhood have menacing dogs and local dog pound not picking them up? Have you tried contacting them? Be sure to say they are chasing children and are biting people. That will get them there promptly because of the potential for lawsuit against the city. Oh, and city dog catchers are peace officers. They can ticket homeowners on leash laws, etc.

That is how it should be. That is not always the case however.

Vinegar solution in a squirt gun, harmless but smelly and stings the eyes.

That's ok. I'm sure it could be drained and refilled with wasp spray.

The super soaked ideas are good except I'll have a leash in each hand. The dogs are only a problem when we're walking ours (on a leash, in our own yard). One of the owners is the son of a former mayor do he just pitches a fit instead of paying a fine. He'll definitely pursue legal action if he has any kind of case. The cops/animal control have been called multiple times, he doesn't care. The bear spray sounds like my best option.

I have used Kimber Pepper Blasters and they work great. The range is probably not 30' but certainly more than the 12 or so feet you get out of the Sabre canister. Also they are non-aerosol so the product doesn't drift around as much as spray from one of those canisters so you can less likely to give yourself or your own dogs a dose.

The only thing is they are relatively expensive, you only get 2 shots, and they are not reloadable.

Jframe beat me to it. I was going to suggest wasp spray. I don't think it has a 30' range but its cheap. I buy it from Walmart (Eliminator brand) and I have never got a bad can of it and its just a couple of bucks.

I never thought about it being flammable. I have something new to try now.

If the damn dog is coming into your yard and attacking, just shoot the stupid thing and be done with it. When the neighbor comes to confront you, have the cops on the phone to respond to that.
