Encountering an Unfriendly Dog

This entry was posted by Rob on Saturday, 5 May, 2007 at

Man’s best friend. Usually. But sometimes an unfriendly dog
may threaten someone on the street. Now if you are
trespassing on someone else’s property and you chose to
ignore the “Beware of Dog” sign, that is your own fault.
However, if you are minding your own business and an
aggressive dog crosses your path, that is a different story.

Dogs are complex animals and share many of the same feelings
and emotions as humans. Just ask any dog lover or a family
that considers the dog as a true family member. Many times
you can read a dog’s mannerisms as decide if the dog
approaching you is attacking or exploring, threatening or

If you enjoy the luxury of being able to determine this from
a safe distance, stand very still and attempt to be calm.
Don’t scream at the dog and run, you could easily confuse
the dog and escalate the situation very quickly. Be aware of
where the dog is and keep looking in its general direction.
Do NOT stare into the dog’s eyes. This could be considered
an aggressive challenge to a dog, which is surely what you
are looking to avoid.

When the dog approaches, let the dog sniff you. In a low
voice, tell the dog, “No! Go home!” Stay very still until
the dog leaves. Back away slowly until it is out of sight.

If a dog does attack, try to remove your workout jacket or
other item of clothing and give it to the dog. This may
distract him or appease its curiosity. If you are knocked
down or fall, curl into a ball and keep your hands over your
ears and face. Try not to scream or roll around.

Of course, there are other methods when all else fails.
Using the latest ultrasonic technology, there is an
electronic Dog Repeller that produces a discomforting but
not harmful, high frequency sound. It is audible to dogs but
not to humans and can help stop the approach of unwanted
dogs at up to 15 feet. It is one of the most humane and safe
way to deter unfriendly dogs.

The ultrasonic dog repeller emits a frequency ranged from
20,000 Hz to 25,000 Hz interval, which is hardly audible by
humans but can be heard by dogs or cats. The dog repeller
may harmlessly deter the approach of a dog or cat when
properly used. The device will project these ultrasonic
waves as you continuously press the power button and
directly point the dog repeller toward the approaching
unfriendly dog. The ultrasonic waves emitted from the dog
repeller will discomfort the dogs and make them get away.
This dogchaser will help the user establish a safe zone
between the user and the unfriendly dog.


As a last resort, EPA approved Maceâ„¢ Muzzle pepper spray
provides safe, effective and humane protection against
canine attack. Ideal protection for walkers, joggers,
cyclists or delivery people. This spray stops attacking dogs
and forces them to retreat. You’ll never have to be scared
of another dog. Keep with you whenever you’re out.

Maceâ„¢ Muzzle canine repellent is an excellent product for
defending against attacking dogs. This specially formulated
pepper spray is designed specifically for dogs and has been
proven to be effective in encounters with aggressive
canines. If a dog attacks you, spraying this repellent in
it’s face will stop him in his tracks, overpowering the
animal forcing him to retreat. If you jog or take walks,
then you should carry this dog spray with you. It is
lightweight, easily accessible, and will provide fast
protection when you need it most.


Hopefully most of your encounters with dogs would not resort
to a determination of needing to result to a self defense
situation. Dogs bark. It’s what they do. There is no reason
to hose him down with pepper spray for it. But when the
unfortunate time arises when you think it will attack,
especially if your children are involved, do not hesitate
from deploying whatever means necessary to protect yourself
and family.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you,
but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could
be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection
to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal

Stay safe and be prepared!

Yours in Safety,
