There was an article recently from a health department that gave some dog attack prevention tips. Dogs attack millions of Americans every year with close to 5 million Americans being bitten annually and over 1 million requiring hospitalization.
Among other things it said to never pet a dog while it is eating or drinking. Never reach over a fence that has a dog behind it.
Some other tips include 'Do you know what to do if you ever encounter an aggressive dog, one that growls, stands stiff-legged or has its ears laid back? Stand as still as a tree and be quiet. Do not make eye contact, and running away will probably cause the dog to chase and attack. This is the reason why the “chase” game should never be played with your own dog. Wait for the dog to move away and then slowly back up.'
One of the best defenses against dog attacks is a device that makes an ultrasonic sound and can repel dogs from 20 feet away. The Dog Chaser is amazingly effective.
