Why is this?

That you see someone out walking their dogs and they have a stick with them? I see this all the time.

  • A lot of folks let their dogs run loose, and in some areas there are quite a few strays. People that I know who carry sticks do so for their own protection as well as the protection of their dog. I don't carry a stick, but I'm seriously thinking about getting a can of pepper spray to carry with me when I take my dog out. I recently moved into an apartment complex and there is one dog here that has come after my dog 3 times in the last 2 weeks. I try my best to notice when the lady who owns him is out with him, but sometimes she comes out after me or I don't see her when I take my dog out. Her dog sure sees my dog though, and has dragged her across the yard to get to my dog. Just last night the dog almost got into my apartment because it heard me open my door and came charging after my dog. I won't let my kids, myself or my dog get hurt if I can help it... so pepper spray or a stick is a logical choice to help defend. :-)

  • I think they do it to discipline them with it.

  • I know people that carry things (pepper spray, large sticks, etc.) when they walk their dogs and it's due to loose dogs in their area.
