I briefly considered it but decided I was t going to risk a missed shot. If itíd be just me, my dog, and the Pit there wouldíve been a dead Pit that morning.

    Iíve avoided a lot of dog incidents with a harsh word and a flashlight. Iíd yell PFUI(Dutch for shame) and put a strong flashlight beam in the dogs eyes. It worked a lot. You could yell no or whatever word as long as itís a sharp, harsh command. Itís the voice tone thatís needed. Oh and a Maglite to the head or back usually gets a dogís attention.

    A walking stick or a cane can turn dogs even without using them as an impact tool. The best I ever saw was a patrol guy whoíd been an animal control officer. He used a 26Ē ASP to turn and make a dog avoid him. He never used it to strike but to push. I complimented him afterwards and he just laughed and said dogs donít like sticks. I know from using a pole noose you have one shot of getting the noose over the dogs head. If you miss he knows the game is up and will avoid the pole making it a lot harder.

    Iíve used OC on dogs. Itís hit and miss. It doesnít effect them like humans. I think theyíre more scared of the cloud then whatís in it. We used fire extinguishers with pretty good results on dogs. Our patrol dogs are trained to work in chemical agents.

    From SWAT and OTJ experiences Dogs donít like flash bangs and they donít like Tasers. Iíve seen several pit bulls get tased and they ran off like their ass was on fire and their tail was catching. They hit the end of the wires and were gone. Beanbags work well.
    I used the stern words and confrontation technique against a charging 120lb Boerboel. It worked, but I was close to jumping in the truck or putting a round in the dirt in front of the dog. It was a near thing.

    Yup. They seem more stable than some of the other fashionable Molossers, but I have very little data other than that of my friend that owns the one that charged me.

    My neighbor has a couple of English Mastiffs. The small one is 180 pounds.

    Similar stories with Boerboels in other countries as well. They are a serious dog but when bred correctly should be very stable and good with children. A do understand it you want one from the original Mizpah lines. Iím personally I find the most stable mastiff to be the Tibetan. Serious dogs as well but very solid and relaxed with the family.

    I knew of an English Mastiff. Great dog. When he was in the back yard he was always on a chain, no fence.

    An older woman would walk her small yappie (Pekkie?) and the yappie knew the chain length to a quarter inch. Onwer wouldn't restrain the yappie and it loved to tease & torture the Mastiff.

    One day the chain was wearing so it got replaced with one that was five feet longer.

    The yappie got bit clean in two.

    A cautionary tale with an interesting chain of events.

    Good data, thank you. Although, I donít want to own a Molosser. Why? Racism?! No, the drooling. I do confess as a Northern European Shepherd fan (Dutch/GSD/Mal), being shocked by large Molossserís drooling.
