He surprised me how high he got and how aggressive he was. It was a fairly small dog (like around my knee). Maybe I misidentified what kind it is - the owner called it a Beagle so I accepted that - it was not tri-color. Likely a mix - most around here are. This dog has always been a little more persistent on chasing me but this is the first time he has actually made contact or attempted to get in front. The change in behavior is what concerns me as much as anything. The chasing... ehh its a dog. The jumping and then getting in front of and challenging bothered me.

Consider it motivation.

But then again, it's beagle, not a rotweiler, give it a quick kick and it'll probably leave you alone.

That is kind of where the situation gets interesting. This dog does not bother until yesterday. However he likes to chase for a 1/4 mile or so. And in that 1/4 mile I pass another house which has a BIG dog (I would guess some Pitt mix but really do not know). The big dog normally walks to the edge of its yard but then tags along with Beagle thing though it is far less yippy. I am concerned about what it will do if Beagle thing is being this level of aggressive.

I am going to look at the change in my behaviors I guess. It was pretty late for me to be running and darker than normal so that may have influenced. I'll try the jerky trick and see if it changes anything.

I always opted for just carrying an expandable baton in my hand. Small enough to not look threatening to any passers by, but plenty enough dog stick. It does, of course, depend on your local laws. Back home, I could legally carry it in my hand, but put it in my pocket and it suddenly became a concealed weapon not covered under my permit.

Your only other option is running with a shotgun... good luck hitting a running/jumping dog with a pistol... and not shooting a neighbor.

Or just avoiding the areas with the arsehole dogs completely.

EDIT: Many states do not look kindly on expandable batons unless you are a cop.

I'm a dog lover, if it was me and I felt I was going to be bitten, I'd carry some pepper spray.

I second the pepperspray suggest, if the government issues it mail carriers it's probably relatively effective.

Also, dogs tend to mimic each others behavior, so if the beagle becomes aggressive the big dog might follow suit.

I know the feeling. When I was a kid, I was knocked off my bike by a neighbor's Great Dane who then proceeded to chew on my gloved hand. I couldn't get him off of me and finally a passerby stopped and pistol whipped him until he let me loose.

The glove saved my hand but nothing could have saved that dog.

Pepperspray and the like are effective if used correctly but could fail. Honestly a blunt object and some time in a batting cage is probably your best bet.

Beagles are just awful.

My neighbor had 3 of them and they ALWAYS barked at me whenever I went outside. One day one of htem ran through the invisible fence and actually bit me lightly on the leg. I was carrying my french horn case so I just knocked it lightly to get it away.
