Self-Defense Against Dog Attacks And Dog Bites

I admit to having a bias against dog bites and dog attacks. I have the psychological scars and the physical scars from being attacked and bitten by a dog. It is just something you never forget. I even have nightmares about it once in a while. It took 80 some stitches to sew up my arm leaving a lasting physical reminder of what happened years ago.

So to this day when I go walking in my neighborhood I’m always concerned about dog attacks and dog bites and my own self-defense, personal safety and personal security. Millions of Americans every year are attacked by dogs. It is a situation that is never going to get any better-at least it seems that way. Nearly 1,000,000 people every year are hospitalized by dog bites.

You hear all kinds of stories about unprovoked dog bites and dog attacks on unsuspecting people. For example, is recently a TV news anchor was doing a story about a dog. The dog probably that would have drowned without a fireman’s help. It made for a good human interest story. So the news anchor brought the dog and fireman to the TV studio. While doing this story live on television, the dog attacked the anchor and bit her in the face.

It just shows that dogs can attack and bite at any time for seemingly no apparent reasons.

So what are people supposed to do? People love the outdoors and love to walk, jog, ride a bicycle or just exercise. If you are concerned at all about your self-defense, personal security and personal safety, here are some great ways to defend against dog attacks and dog bites.

I used to carry a specially formulated dog pepper spray but it only had a limited range of about 12 feet. If you’ve ever seen how fast a dog can run when he’s charging at you, 12 feet is about a half an eye blink. Then I carried the telescopic stun baton and used it on two occasions. It was very effective and frequently scared the dog away with the sound of charging device.

The Scram Animal Chaser sends out an ultrahigh frequency sound that repels dogs, cats, squirrels and other nuisance animals up to 20 feet away. Just aim the scram animal chaser and pull the trigger. The laser light helps guide your aim. It is a favorite of many customers because it can be used against other animals besides dogs.

And finally, one of the most effective tools for self-defense against dog attacks is the Mace pepper gun. It shoots out a full strength concentration of pepper spray up to 25 feet away. The replaceable cartridges holds enough pepper spray for seven shots so if you miss your first shot you have more.

Those are the best defenses against dog bites and dog attacks to help improve your personal safety and personal security while in the great outdoors.

The Mace Pepper Gun is extremely effective for self-defense against dog attacks.
