I have found panniers make it difficult for a dog to get to your ankles. I also have an airzound , mace, and keep my cadence high. There is not much a rider can do if a really determined dog comes after you. I like the idea of ignoring the dog until you need to protect yourself but i have had five or more after me, in a residential zone, at one time. Some of those wanted to play others wanted me for lunch . What i would like to have avaiable is one of those flashlights that blink and make a person vomit. I wonder if they work on dogs???
