I ride a Trident ST2 trike with my head only about 3ft above the road. For the first time I have started to think about dogs chasing me. We'll after years and thousands of miles one finally did. Luckily I was carrying a small anti-dog pepper spray and the dog seemed to know what it was and backed down as soon as my straight arm was pointing at it. Although it was hard pointing back and riding so there was a slow speed standoff until I hit a nice hill. I did spay one test and what a pathetic little stream(I wish I could have done the test on the irresponsible dog owner). Aim would need to be great and dog only 5ft away. Any suggestions on a good longer distance spray that would be legal in Canada?
Also I was thinking of carrying/attaching an 18"x2" wood dissuader should the spray miss. Any thoughts on this and would this be legal in Canada. Canada seems pretty draconian about personal defense IMO. I guess there is no personal crime up there
