Yes, if you have dogs, please contain them. I've known mountain bikers who even rode with their dogs running along with them. I don't see why people would buy an animal that is prone to chasing and then not train it, even just for the sake of avoiding liability.

Why does this "go shoot the owner" comment always come up in any discussion about defensive firearms and stray/loose dogs pursuing bicyclists? That is just a dumb idea.

The owner could be a meathead, or could be a teenager. The dog might be behind a fence yet hop over it. I am not sure if the comment was some kind of sarcasm or not.
happy, I do not advocate murder. OF COURSE I was joking, kinda. How about just giving the owner a good b**ch slap for being stupid.
I've been a dog owner most of my life. Not one of my dogs ever chased a bike or car. Puppies need close supervision and older dogs need to be trained for their own safety. If you can't do this then you should NOT own a dog.
Ya need a license to ride a little motorized bike. Ya don't need anything to raise a kid or a dog. Now there's the REAL stupidity.

installing a new engine bottom with custom mounts and testing a new exhaust if it will fire on later.

Fatdaddy, ok, fair enough. hahaaha. Luckily in TX you don't need a license to ride a motorized bicycle (49cc and 30mph top speed. Please, armchair lawyers, don't pipe up about the scooter laws or posts walls of text, it's been done already), but you do have to jump through hoops to carry a handgun.

I agree about the responsibility to train a dog if owning one. I don't own any dogs. I like a few but generally don't enjoy dogs, and don't like animals in the house. There are tons of dogs here that stay in their yards, even if they bark their heads off and run the fence line or the ditch. But it only takes one dog, even a little bitty sucker, to wreck a bike or injure a cyclist.

Saw a little yapper dog attacking a mail carrier. The guy was apparently used to it and had a spray can of some thing attached to his bag. He kept spraying at the dog's face. The dog would stop and rub his face in the grass but was soon up and yappin' at the guy again. Didn't seem to hurt the dog but did keep him at bay.

Made me think of the original BatMan movie. During a shark attack while hanging from the bat 'coppter. "Robin, quick. The shark repellent!"

SO, This being the "What did you do to your motor bike today" thread, and we're talking about stupid people letting their dogs chase bikes, Has anyone done anything to their bike, today or any day, to prevent, defend or in any way guard against a little yapper trying to get hold of yer leg. I'm thinking perhaps I should start thinking about this before I have a chiuaua hanging off my leg. ANYBODY?
fatdaddy.
P.S. and please, I don't really want to hurt the dog. The owner? Maybe.

You can dangle the pull start rope and hope the sucker goes for that instead of fresh meat.

35,000+ miles on a road bike and the best thing I found was to stop. Dogs are pretty much operating on instinct and to them a bicycle looks like a deer or some other sizable prey. That's why they tend to nip at the tires or run under the front wheel. They don't see a person until you stop the bike and say something to them.

On my bike today? Still messing with the wiring.
