There was an opinion piece recently in the Baltimore Sun that made the argument that dog attacks are not the fault of dogs but the fault of their owners. Not sure I buy that but here’s part of what the opinion piece had to say
“If reader Tom Paxton were actually a lifelong animal lover, he would understand that all dogs are “potentially dangerous” (“Pit bull compromise deserved to fail,” April 15).
All dogs have teeth. All dogs, given their breeding and life experience, can be problematic — or wonderful.
I’ve been a professional dog trainer for decades. Mr. Paxton says the owner of a dog that bit him treated her pit bull “like a poodle.” I’ve been threatened (more often than bitten, thanks to dog-smarts and good reflexes) by every breed in existence.”
Over 1000 people every day get hospitalized by dog attacks in the United States. Many of them are small children.
We heartily recommend the Mace Pepper Gun because it has range of 25 feet which makes it longer than any other self-defense product. And if you know anything about dogs and how fast they can run, a medium-size dog can cover 10 or 15 feet in the blink of an eye.
