What can I do if an intruder breaks in that DOESN'T require a gun?

I am a newly single mother. I live in a small town that is fairly safe, but you never know. I do not want a gun in my house since it raises the chances of a gun-related accident with children.

I lock my doors, and I have a big dog (but he's friendly).
My question is: what is a good way to stop an intruder if one actually gets in? Mace? I've considered getting a gun and loading it with blanks as a scare tactic that wouldn't endanger my child....
