How do you protect yourself against this?
 
You're shooting and then 2 pitbulls attack you.

Well loll,

I kanda have had the same experience 2 weeks ago.
I was filming a bicycle race, and i had to run over the street to reposition my camera, and i din't notice that there was a guy with a dobberman dog ( don't know if the name is the same in english!). I was just turning myself, and then out of nothing the dog bit me. luckely for me the dog let go, so i could just get away. result: 4 toothmarks and 1 week out, ohh and yeaaa the bicycle race was ruined.

greets

MichaŽl.

I wonder if you could mount these Animal Repellants on an L-bracket like Beach amp or microphone.

For really mean dogs you might have to mount one of these.

Not sure about the laws in Canada, but a small can of bear repellant (pepper spray) would probably work quite well. It is legal to carry here and very effective against most large animals.

hopefully your shooting your .357 and not a camera!!

well, actually if you kick a dog in the rib cages theres a good chance their ribs collapse, now thats a real hard kick mind you, but thats what i was taught. Course with teo dogs, you'd have to do some fancy foot work i supose

Maybe something like this would ease your mind a little ...
