I often take my girl to the "dog park", so she can join in and socialise. However I also want to take my camera gear (two bags. You can probably guess what I want to know.
How do I prevent males from peeing on my camera bags? One has actually done it when I was carrying the bags, and peed on me as well! Not much because I yelled and he stopped.
Many of the owners either do not care or are ineffectual. Some even get snotty if I have a go at the dog. Usually all I say is "AH!"
I have tried citronella oil, and it sort of works, but will not stop some dogs. Once a dog has left its little present, others follow.
I can't be holding the bags up all the time. I want to throw stuff for the dog, or even take photos and the bags are too heavy to be held out of range for extended periods.
SO, has anyone tried to avoid this? What was tried and what worked? I am willing to cough up for something like the Dog Off pro etc, but even they require that I watch my bags like a hawk at all times,...........there is something suspiciously surreptitious about the leg cocking action....the advantage of an ultrasonic unit is that I am not yelling at the dog and risking the ire of the owner.
