Appreciate everybody’s ideas.
Art Your umbrella mention has me wondering if I can make a drop down shield off the tow bars for side protection.
I’m still running scenarios.
All possible scenarios are important to address. I never considered I would ever need it but seems I do need to start carrying citronella and or weak mace at all times.
On a night walk on my fenced property with Chet off leash, no ecollar he got nipped by rat terrier. Little rat terrier came bolting out of grass clump nipped chets back leg and took off. It’s little buddy
was waiting further down and got in another nip as Chet went past it going after the first one. They kicked in his prey drive pretty hard. Chet has good recall I don’t think he could hear me over the noise those 2 were making.
Been working on educating it’s not cruel to keep a dog in a pen, yard, tie out something as long as give them free time because they can get in trouble on their own.
