Stun Batons for Dog Attack Prevention
Post by Bryan Buckner
I'm a dog lover! I have a Golden and Yellow Lab, both of which are considered family members. That said, my dogs can be quite aggressive and territorial toward strangers. As a responsible owner I make sure to keep my dogs restrained to ensure their safety as well as the safety of others. Unfortunately, some owners are not responsible and allow their dogs run the streets and setting the stage for bites and attacks. The most recent US survey places the number of dogs in the United States at a staggering 74.8 million. (American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA) 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey.) Another survey of dog bites, conducted by CDC researchers and based on data collected during 2001-2003, concluded that dogs bite 4.5 million Americans per year (1.5% of the entire population). Sacks JJ, Kresnow M. Dog bites: still a problem? Injury Prevention 2008 Oct;14(5):296-301. Almost 800,000 bites per year -- one out of every 6 -- are serious enough to require medical attention. (Weiss HB, Friedman D, Coben JH. Incidence of dog bite injuries treated in emergency departments. JAMA 1998;279:51-53.) One of the safest and most humane way to protect yourself from aggressive dog attacks is to carry and utilize a non-lethal self defense weapon such as a mini stun baton. Stun guns and batons use high voltage, low amperage electricity and are excellent at deterring and even stopping dog attacks. Simply firing the stun baton and emitting the loud "crackling" sound is usually enough to back a dog down. If it doesn't, touching the animal with the stun baton will have them "tucking" the tail and running. Stun batons do not cause any long term or serious injuries to the animals. A mini stun baton is affordable, effective, easy to operate and packed with great features. This mini stun baton is ultra powerful, sporting the equivalent of 4.5 million volts of jaw dropping electricity. These are rechargeable stun batons, which means you can re-charge the batteries by simply plugging it into a standard wall outlet. A wrist strap and safety pull pin keep the mini stun gun from being used if the pin is pulled out. A powerful built in LED flashlight will keep you out of the dark. The mini stun baton itself is only 9.5 inches long, not too big or bulky, but enough length to keep you out of harms way. Lastly, if it breaks we replace it free of charge! Postal workers, delivery drivers, meter readers, walkers, bikers and joggers; this is a must have product that will increase peace of mind while providing you the safety you need.
