Dog Attack Defense Options For Women

The annual study that shows how overweight Americans are by state was released recently. Not surprisingly Alabama and Mississippi have the highest rates-they always do. Colorado and Connecticut have the lowest rates. Compared to four years ago the rates have skyrocketed. So all the work that the government has done to control obesity has been a big failure much like everything else the government does. But I digress.

One of the reasons Colorado is again at the top of the list for the least obese in the country is because its’ citizens are much more active in outdoor activities like walking, running and cycling. In case you haven’t figured it out two of those activities walking and running can be done pretty much for free while cycling requires a bicycle. When you live out in Colorado you’re motivated by the beautiful scenery just about everywhere.

The biggest threat to people who rely on walking, running and cycling for their exercise are dog attacks and dog bites. Reported cases of dog attacks and dog bites on an annual basis show that over 5 million Americans are victims. Of those over 1 million require hospitalization for serious injury. Those are just the reported ones.

That is why dog attack defense has become such a huge concern. And since well over 50% of all people who do walking, running and cycling are women, dog attack defense has become an integral part of female self defense.

The self-defense options for female self-defense are basically these three.

1. The first is a special pepper spray formulated by Mace brand. It is strong enough to repel a dog but not injure it long-term. Muzzle brand is an EPA approved pepper spray that can go up to 10 feet and has enough for 10 one second bursts.

2. The second is the telescopic stun baton that extends out to 21 1/2 inches at the press of a button and electrifies to 800,000 volts. The sound that it makes and the site of the sparks flying off the handle are very intimidating and often are enough to stop the dog in it’s’ tracks.

3. But the most popular is the MACE PEPPER GUN. It uses a unique dispensing system called “bag in a can” technology. The replaceable cartridges have an enough oleoresin capsicum, or OC, to fire off seven 25 foot shots making it the longest range self defense product in the world. Is extremely effective against dogs because it uses a full strength 10% solution of OC and is great against multiple attackers. It is small enough to carry in a pocket or purse but a holster is available small extra charge.

When you go out to do your walking, running or cycling the best female self-defense you can carry with you against dog attacks and dog bites is the Mace pepper gun.
