Dog Attack And Dog Bite Defense-Top Three Ways To Protect Yourself
Tens of millions of Americans every day walk, jog and ride their bicycles as a means of exercise in the great outdoors. It not only is a prime way of reducing blood pressure and losing weight but it’s just a great way to get some fresh air and clear your head. More people are doing this with a friend but most do it by themselves or sometimes take their pet dog. No matter how they do it, it gets done.
For some reason dog attack prevention and dog bite defense are two of the hottest topics we have seen in the last six years. Maybe it’s because over 5 million Americans get attacked by dogs annually and those are just the reported cases. Of those attacked nearly 1,000,000 get hospitalized with dog bites.
Irresponsible pet owners who allow their dogs to roam freely and start or join packs of dogs don’t deserve any consideration in my opinion. The hairs on the back of my neck still bristle every time a strange dog approaches me when I’m out walking, which is daily. Several bad experiences and 87 stitches in my right arm that causes my heightened anxiety.
There are three great tools that can be used in a defense against dog attacks. You should have at least one of them with you when you go out to walk, jog or ride
The first is the electronic dog chaser that works up to 40 feet away. It uses an uncomfortable ultrasonic high-frequency sound that is audible to dogs, cats, coyotes and wolves, but not to humans. It helps stop the approach of unwanted dogs using the high-frequency sound and a super bright strobe LED light. Got pesky cats in your backyard? This may be the answer to getting rid of them.
The best dog attack prevention tool is the Mace Pepper Gun that shoots a full strength 10% solution of pepper spray up to 25 feet away. It is the longest range self defense product in the world. It is great against multiple attackers because it has up to seven 25 foot shots in its replaceable cartridge. The length of the shot-25 feet-and the strength of the OC solution-10%-is what makes this is such an effective tool against dog bites and dog attacks.
Third is the Scram Patrol, which not only repels cats, dogs, squirrels, coyotes, wolves and other nuisance animals with a high-pitched sound that is discomforting to the animals but not to humans. This device can also be used as a training tool for dogs. It has a laser, which helps in targeting the unwanted animal.
Those are three of the most effective tools to repel dogs.
The Scram Patrol with laser is an effective dog attack and dog bite prevention tool too.
