Am I the only person who thinks this is starting to sound a bit millitant?
Now shock collars are illegal, dog trainers are using collars that spray either plain water, or diluted lemon juice. You don't need more; don't be suprised if carrying a bottle of bleach or ammonia to spray dogs with ends up with you in an awful lot of trouble.

Quite regularly I have to sound my approach using my rather nifty AirZounds Horn.
I don't know what stretch of the cut you mean, but I suspect you mean towpath, not cycle path.
I am a keen cyclist, but I am also a residential boater, and I can honestly say anyone that uses an airzounds horn on a towpath is just as unpleasant and antisocial as someone who lets their dog run around off its lead and &$£! everywhere, IMO.
I wouldn't be at all suprised if one day trying that on an unsuspecting dog walker ends up with you suddenly finding yourself swimming instead of cycling.
If there's other people on a long stretch of towpath, slow down. Swap your horn for a bell, ping as you approach, then smile and say thank you as you pass. You'll arrive at work happier, and you give all cyclists a better name. Sorted.
