[If you know vicious dogs live in your neighbor and you can’t/don’t carry a handgun for protection then it is a must for you to carry pepper spray made especially for self defense against dogs. It’s far better to have it and never need it than to desperately need it and not have it. We have this and many other non-lethal self defense supplies at our web-store.]
