One of the best defenses against an assault or even a robbery is the Telescoping Stun Baton that extends to 21 inches from 13 inches once you press the activation button. It is also one of the best defenses against dog attacks.

This handy, easy to carry stun baton comes in a hip holster for easy access. Our customers love this as a defense against dogs so they carry it with them when they are out walking.

This multi-use self-defense weapon has a lifetime warranty because the manufacturer stands behind its work.

There are some things you can do to protect yourself against dog bites and dog attacks. The best thing obviously is to arm yourself with some self defense products that are geared towards fending off dog attacks and consequent dog bites. One of the best known is called the dog chaser. It sends out ultrahigh frequency sound that scares dogs away. The sound is only heard by dogs and will not bother your neighbors.

The Ultrasonic Dog Chaser is the most effective against small to medium size dogs.

It should be noted that some dogs like pit bulls and Dobermans seem to be immune to just about anything.
