Dog Attacks-New Opinion

Share

Here is an editorial written by a concerned citizen about her observations in people’s attitudes when out walking dogs, riding their bikes or just out through daily exercise.

You can read the whole opinion piece HERE.

Her observations are that people are arming themselves with pepper spray, sticks, stun guns, wasp spray or anything else they can use if there dog was attacked by an aggressive dog or if they are attacked.

The fact is, there is no excuse for a dog to be aggressive. An aggressive dog is an aggressive dog, period; end of story. It’s like going to any self-help group and taking the first step by admitting that you have a problem. That done, the next step is getting help, and there is help for you and your aggressive dog.

“The number one thing any dog owner must do is keep your dog on a leash! This goes for every dog, friendly or not. This is for their safety and yours, as well as the community. There is a leash law and for good reason; please adhere to it for the safety of all involved. I will admit that I have been remiss at times with my own dogs on this, but have amended my ways with a renewed, and vigilant attitude.

Let me say again that there are no excuses for an aggressive dog. You can’t take back the damage that your dog has done after the fact. There is documented proof that the dog who is the victim of a dog attack will become dog aggressive themselves for survival sake. I can’t blame them but this can become a snowball effect, with our beautiful and safe community to take the brunt of it. Take responsibility for your dog by being a responsible owner.”

In the United States over 5 million people are attacked by dogs every year and 1 million of them need treatment at a hospital. That equates to a huge cost, both in time and money. Insurance companies are going crazy paying out claims against homeowners. But the biggest thing is that people are afraid of dogs and for good reason.

They hesitate to go out walking, cycling or jogging anymore because of the fear of dog attacks. But it needn’t be that way if they arm themselves with a good self-defense product such as the Mace Pepper Gun or the Sabre Protector Dog Spray.

Family Dog Attacks Volunteer

Share

The New Zealand SPCA is reviewing its procedures around dogs after a volunteer was mauled by a “family” dog that had shown no hint of aggression until it attacked.

The experienced volunteer, known as Paula, was with the dog, a 5-year-old Border collie, and two smaller dogs in a pen last Friday when something caused the dog to attack.

“There were absolutely no indications of aggression or risk with this dog. We’ve reviewed all the history – from the moment it was dropped off and its journey in the SPCA – and, in fact, this dog showed no issues whatsoever,” Auckland SPCA chief executive Christine Kalin said.

But then last week it attacked Paula, aged in her 40s, leaving her with several wounds on her legs and an arm.

SPCA was now reviewing its procedures around dogs, although it may never be known what set the dog off.

This story is just further evidence that dogs are wild animals and as such an attack anyone, anytime, anyplace.

The best way you can defend against the dog attack is with the self-defense product such as this Sabre brand Protector Dog Spray that contains as many as 25 short bursts up to 15 feet away.

Dog Attack Makes Walk In The Park A Scary Situation

Share

A walk in the park with her dog turned into a nightmare for Dunedin woman Sonia McGregor after her dog Ali was attacked by another dog.

Soon after Ali had been let off his leash to run around Kettle Park, a dog, which looked like a pit bull, ran from the other side of the field and started biting Ali’s neck, she said.

At first the owner of the pit bull thought it was playing with Ali but soon realised it was worse when Mrs McGregor tried to pry the dog off.

The rest of the story is HERE.

“At first I didn’t know what to do and then I started hitting the dog but I was worried about my hands . . . It was very scary,” she said.

People with potentially dangerous dogs needed to consider others before letting their dogs off a leash.

”I’m not sure if he gave me the wrong number or in the heat of the moment I wrote it down wrong.”

Mrs McGregor had not contacted the Dunedin City Council but said she would soon.

Dunedin South Veterinary Clinic veterinarian Alistair Newbould said there had been a spate of animals coming to the clinic suffering from dog bites in the last month but it was not unusual.

”Usually, if a dog has bitten another dog or animal, they are likely to have done it before or do it again,” he said.
When an animal is bitten by a dog it should be taken to a veterinary clinic immediately because of the danger of infection, he said.

We like this Sabre Dog Spray because it has a longer range than the Mace brand dog spray and it is slightly more powerful so it has a better chance at repelling dogs.

One of the best ways to defend yourself against dog attacks is with a self defense product like the Mace Dog Spray.

But we have been recommending a different product for years. It is the Mace Pepper Gun which can shoot a full strength 10% solution of pepper spray up to 25 feet away. And if you know anything about dogs and how they attack, a dog can cover 25 feet pretty fast.

This is a news story about how dog attacks continue to be the number one problem for postal carriers nationwide and that San Diego is number two in the country for dog attacks. The story points out that more than half the dog attacks are against children.

You can read the whole story HERE.

The story goes on to say “dog attacks are a nationwide issue and not just a postal problem. Working with animal behavior experts, we’ve developed tips to avoid dog attacks, and for dog owners, tips for practicing responsible pet ownership.”

The most common defenses against dog attacks are the Electronic Dog Chaser that sends out an ultrahigh frequency sound that chases dogs away or the Mace Pepper Spray. Those are very effective. But many people are choosing the Mace Pepper Gun because it has a longer range of up to 25 feet and has enough oleoresin capsicum in the cartridge that’s replaceable for seven shots-just in case you miss.

Here’s an article that was in US News and World Report last week about a major insurance company that paid out $109 million for dog bite claims in 2011. The number of claims and the amount paid for them is up from 2010.

You can read the rest of the story HERE.

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.
