You are right about the doggie treats, the country drivers all use them, and most of the dogs out in the country are family pets, and not dangerous, so its a good trick to have them just in case. But the pit bulls and rots, dont seem to care, and I dont push it, once bitten, still shy. I remember going back to work after being attacked, and every time I heard a dog bark, or growl, or heard a collar rattle, I would just freeze, which is the worse thing to do as they can sense fear. Im a little better now, but still too cautious some would say. But the ones who would say that arent listening as they cant hear us anyway.
