Jogging, Dogs and Pepper Spray

As the weather gets warmer, may people like to start taking nice walks or begin to jog more. You need to be aware that you´re always at risk when you are running, walking or Jogging, It is important to note that even if you are carrying pepper spray you need stick to well traveled streets. Please avoid shortcuts through wooded areas, parking lots, or alleys. If you like to jog on trails through a park, it’s like having a sign on your back that says “victim”. Hundreds of women are sexually assaulted every year jogging on trails, and dozens murdered.

Run or walk with a partner or a dog, do not wear headsets (IPOD, MP3, etc) , and carry a cell phone. If possible carry some type of personal protection product such as pepper spray or a big stick if you have to. For some weird reason there is a growing population of aggressive dog owners especially in the neighborhoods of the lower socioeconomic status.

Safety Tips

  • If you are out jogging and a dog starts to run after you, STOP. I know it goes against your basic instinct, but running excites dogs, and unless you are in top shape, they will catch you anyway.
  • If you are out walking or jogging and notice a stray dog, hopefully you can walk out of the dog’s roving range.
  •  However, should the dog attack, use your pepper spray to repel and disable the dog from harming you. Pepper spray is an non-lethal effective dog repellant that is easy to carry on your run.
  • If a dog happens to knock you down before you can get to your pepper spray, curl into a ball, and use your hands to protect your head and neck.
