Dog Repellant Experience?
(And yes, I did misspell "repellent" in the title. Shame on me.)
Might get a bit warm in CA, but sweat doesn't hurt as much.
And for those really strange jobs.
First month as a rodman, dog growling and barking, older lady, " oh don't worry, suzie doesn't bite" Party Chief, "I know lady, dead dogs don't bite" Never saw that dog the rest of the job.
NOTHING will stop a mad pit bull. And they are quicker than you can swing a ditch blade. I believe you'd have to kill one before he latched onto you to avoid serious injury.
