Bear spray it can stop big cats i'm sure it would stop a dog . Just spray before he come near you and the dog will smell it and runaway .

I hate the idea of having to punish an animal because it has a shitty owner, but this is probably the best course of action.

The dog left the owners property and bit you? You were within your rights to end the animal right there.

I had a similar experience with a large black lab, after dark. I turned and faced it before it caught up to me, and the animal immediately powered down and went back to the property. I yelled something along the lines of:

Keep your dog on a fucking leash!

at the top of my lungs and kept going. I no longer run on that route - I stick with the treadmill. People don't seem to realize that responsible dog owners take the time to train their dogs.

If you notice the dog don't try to outrun it, just pause and make yourself big and scary. The dog will back away, if it doesn't then you may need to physically dominate it which just means hitting it or grabbing it's collar and picking it up slightly.

If the dog in question is too big and confident then you'd be better off running into it's home. The owner will likely be able to call it off, but if not then you'll be taking a trip to the hospital.

Don't try to outrun dogs, they can move much faster than most people even at full sprint. Humans can run farther than dogs, but dogs are faster.

If you want to take precautions then take a tennis ball and throw it for the dog, if it ignores that you might try a dog treat, if it's just to aggressive then you'll have to use something like a tazer if you want to be safe.

I find a swift kick around the snout area usually sorts them out.

Have not tried, but tempted to buy a dog whistle from Amazon... I've been nipped once this year.

I don't know that being drunk would help the situation.

Is expensive and boring worse than rabies shots?
