fortunately "in my neck of the wood" there are very few mean dogs...most of em are friendly and are still in a fence or chained up.

A metal pump? what about it? smack the dog over the head with it? I'm assuming you're saying that THAT particular pump wouldn't explode into 20 pieces upon meeting with a canine's cranial area.
funny story last sunday i was lost in the woods and finally found a road.after all the pedaling up hills i did the roads started going downhill. flying down the hill i al,ost hit a amish buggy the damn thing came from the very side of the road out into the middle ALL THE SUDDDEN it pissed me off so i "yelled my horse is faster and it dosent pollute the road with sh*t!! " refering to my diamondback....then like 20 min later a german shepard ran right out infront of me when i was going downhill and i had to lock up my disc brakes i powerslided my way around him and continued pedaling barking back.
i was never attacked just chased for a lil...i have a habit of barking at the dogs it dosent do anything except help find humor in the situation. maby dogs in other states will fear a barking human and stay away...might as well try it
I'm guessing you're from PA given the Amish comments? That IS rather amusing that dude in a horse-drawn buggy pulling out is just as bad as a soccer mom in her SUV for not paying attention.
Very odd but it worked, and back then I don't think you could buy pepper spray in the ukOriginally Posted by cryogenic
lemon juice in a squirt *** is plenty in most cases. Plus if your thirsty, you can carry some sugar packets and make lemonade
With pepper sprays, isn't there a high risk of it blowing back at you?
An air horn will usually stop most dogs. The horn can be recharged with a bike pump and the "air tank"
slides into a water bottle holder.

ps. once, I was attacked by a pack of 5 dogs on a dirt road in rural Mexico (which means they're probably not vaccinated or whatever). A liberal sweep with the regular pepper spray the mailman carries stopped them all instantly. Only problem: after using it two more times, my cannister was dead! So I carried a machete
