Geez, my bf and I just got back from a short walk with Aspen and low and behold, out pops a huge brindle pit from the bushes. He didn't come near us, not right away at least. We crossed the street immediately and went another way when the dog dashed after us. Good thing my bf picked up a nice stick he found before this incident, so it came in handy. He was able to scare the dog away, without hitting it.

There has been a pitmix loose by my parents house. Apparently he isn't fond of my dad although in all fairness my dad was probably chasing him out of the yard with a stick or something. I hate when people don't care enough to take care of their animals really why own one at all.
Yeah, unfortunately I see loose dogs A LOT. Some people think they can just leave them out in the front lawn unsupervised, and the dog will be fine and not cause trouble. Well, when another dog walks by, the unsupervised dog is going to dash off to meet him (unless that dog is really, and I mean really trained). Aspen is fine with other dogs when he's off leash. But when he's on a leash, he might be ok he might not. He's just very protective. Especially at night.

Her girl is pretty protective as well (GSD/husky mix) and it got to the point this summer where she just stopped walking her in the neighborhood. She actually got in the car and drove elsewhere to walk Luna.
We don't normally walk in the neighborhood either. Last night we had a big dinner, so decided to go out for a short walk. We usually take Aspen for runs early in the mornings were the trails are by the canyon...

Why don't you just carry a whistle with you.
That's the first thing I tried a while back. Didn't work out. There were some that got scared and ran off, but most ignored it and just kept coming!!
