Last weekend I went on one of my usual tough climbing rides. Near the top of one climb I heard barking dogs. There were three dogs behind a wrought-iron fence. On previous rides I discovered that making puppy sounds at barking dogs usually calms them and stops the barking. Not this time
I was recording video like I always do on climbs, so I used a command I learned from reading one of the dog threads in this subforum. I believe it worked, or I left the dogs territory.
For those who don't know, yes I am a female, so remember that before thinking "that guy yells like a girl":
