Walking my dogs in the woods last year and they run ahead and start barking. I run to them and there is a poacher with a shotgun pointed at them. I drew my 9 and pointed it at him and told him what would happen if he shot my dogs.
Yes, it's not cool to be chased by a dog but if you are seen shooting the wrong dog you just might find shots being fired at you. Some of us really love are dogs.
I ride bikes also and have been chased by dogs but never thought to shoot one.

Pepper spray works without aiming. Just spray it down and behind the dog will run into the cloud.

If someone feels threatened enough by your dog(s) to point a weapon at them, there's a problem with the dog(s) and their owner. I'd bet that the problem is mostly their owner.

Just sayin

I don't care how much you love your dog(s) if they're aggressive and/or running out in the street chasing cars/bikes/motos there's going to be problems.

Walking your dogs in the woods on a leash? You must be a city slicker.

If the problem is with the owner, then aim the gun at the owner, not the dog.

Apparently you understand the dog is not responsible for his inclination to protect his property by chasing away intruders, or possibly just rounding them up, so why would you choose to punish the dog?

Obviously you people from the city didn't get the walking the dogs in the woods and the poacher. All of the property is private and the poacher was hunting without permission and out of season. My dogs are very well trained and come when called. They are not ever on a leash on this private property as no one should be there.
Once again go ahead and get caught shooting the wrong dog and be prepared for what happens. If he had shot one of my dogs he would have been shot.
We had a guy move in down the road several years ago and he shot another neighbors dog which he said he thought was a stray. Bill got arrested for the beating he gave him but he felt it was worth it.

If the dogs owner chased the bike, while barking and growling, that might be a good option to use. The public road is not the dogs, or the owners property to protect.
If a pet owner can't control their pet, maybe they shouldn't be allowed to own one.

I have attacked dogs a couple of times. Once with a rock, once with my bare hands. In both cases the big aggressive dog appeared to be tearing up the dog I was with, but it was all show. Not a mark. Dogs are funny creatures.

What does a poacher on private property have to do with unrestrained dogs chasing bicyclists on public roads?

Next time I'm in the woods I will have to educate the black bears on the leash law :-)

Edited to add forgotten smiley. That means I am just being a wise ass

No deal.

The public road is not the bikes, or the bike owners property to claim.
If a bike owner / rider can't control their bike, maybe they shouldn't be allowed to own one.

In all seriousness, Gummee stated the gun wasn't the first, second, or third choice to control dogs. My thought is, if you have passed the same dog three times without incident other than some barking and chasing you should know where it is and what to expect. Hopefully you are at least as smart as the dog and able to understand it is not a real threat, just a 10 second inconvenience, much the same as cyclists are when they slow down auto traffic by riding three abreast on 55 mph roads.
