...I certainly can't imagine what advantages the OP'S solution re: ... with sugar, shall we? Perhaps it would sweeten their attitudes.

Diddy, I believe the OP said "salt pelter". I suspect rock salt; but, without a gun, I can't imagine how that salt would be propelled. LOL Maybe a sling shot.

Whether it be salt or salt peter, I'm guessing either would be just as ineffective. If I had a pit bull attacking my dogs, I wouldn't limit myself to shot shells filled with popcorn, salt, salt peter, or whatever. I want the real thing.
No matter how he applied salt or salt peter, it's not going to work.

Without a gun, he'd better be thinking "FENCE" or forget the whole thing.
Your sugar-dusting idea reminded me of powdered donuts = yum yum.

Have one, or two on me! Happy Holiday Season!
We have some land that we take all of our ... to keep these pesky dogs from killing my dogs? Pfunk

I don't know about that. The owner DESERVES to know what happened to their pets. Hopefully they learn and take precautions, especially when there are multiple pets owned by irresponsible owners.
I shot one of my neighbors dogs that was chasing my horses. He had dobermans, a shepherd, and two Pit Bulls. I called him at 2 am in the morning and told him to get out here and find his dog that I shot. He said, it couldn't be his dogs, because they don't chase horses. He alwyas turned his dogs loose at night to run. I said fine then, it's not your dog, but if your dogs are all there, you needn't worry about it. He was over shortly. I think he was going to be mad, except i met him at the door holding a gun. He got very polite, and we went searching for his dog and found it.
That didn't stop his behavior unfortunately, because many of the neighbors also claimed they shot his dogs when they were terrorizing the neighborhood. But if they didn't tell him, he never knew they were a problem.
At least I was up front with him so he was aware.
Like a previous poster stated sprays don't always work. I wouldn't rely on spray. I hate to see any dog shot but when it comes to saving myself or my dogs it's acceptable.
I saw a pit that went through a plate glass window across the street from where I worked come after a kid, a next door neighbor, and one of my co-workers before animal control could get there. They were lucky enough to get away because another of my co-workers was hanging out a 2nd story window dangling a coat at the dog distracting it enough so the people could get away otherwise it would have attacked them.
The officer sprayed the dog 3 times trying to get a noose on it. In the end he had no choice but to shoot it. They finally determined the dog went out the window after a cat. The officer found the dead cat behind the house after the whole mess was over.

what about a salt pelter..keep 'em off, no permanent damage done

What will salt peter do? It's not a deterrant/repellant. It's used in making gun powder, but you said you didn't like guns. This is a perplexing suggestion to a very dangerous situation. You, yourself felt it was dangerous. Why make mockery of your own post?

There are salt launchers now (not guns but with the force to make it get into the skin and sting for days), that do not require deadly force. Be educated on "self-defence" means before spouting out unusefull advice.
