Why You Need Self Defense Against Dogs

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia keeps track of all kinds of statistical data. One of the things that they track is dog attacks and dog bites. Over the last 10 years their statistics show that, on average, 4.5 million Americans are attacked annually by a dog. That figure has remained pretty much constant for the last 10 years. Close to 20% of those attacked require hospitalization. That is nearly 1,000,000 people requiring a hospital stay for treatment due to dog attacks and dog bites. Surprisingly, the number one category of people attacked are little children in the family where the dog resides. Close behind are mailmen-letter carriers from the USPS. The next category of people who are attacked are adults who are out exercising in the great outdoors-walking, jogging or cycling.
