Sometimes You Just Can’t Take the Bite out of the Dogs

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 4 February, 2010

In this case out of Ljubljana, the dog’s bark is definitely not worse than their bite.

Slovenian authorities report a 52-year-old pet owner was mauled to death by his three bullmastiffs dogs after saving them from being put down for previously attacking other humans.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you, the dogs attacked the owner in his garden Tuesday. The owner was dead before the police arrived. The dogs were put down immediately following this third attack.

Bullmastiffs (not actual animals from attack)

Apparently, some four years ago, the dogs viciously attacked and seriously injured someone walking past their owner’s house. The dogs spent years in custody awaiting legal trial, but then one of the dogs attacked another person, this time a dog handler. Authorities ordered the dogs to be put down, prompting an appeal by the owner.

Sparking a national controversy, their owner’s appeals succeeded last June and he got the dogs back. An opposition party is now petitioning that the agriculture minister resigns for allowing the dogs to be released.

Product Review: Stun Master Telescopic Stun Baton

Posted by Casey on Tuesday, 2 February, 2010

Day by day it is becoming hard to live peacefully and life has become even harder for women all over the world. We aren’t talking some post-apocalypse degradation of society like in those futuristic movies, but cases of theft, break-ins, robberies and rapes in the news are just as common as the daily sunset. So what exactly can people do in sticky situations which pit them against nasty miscreants?

Begging sounds good but it doesn’t even wiggle a tick on their ears so it’s best to give them some of their own medicine. Carrying a pepper spray is just too easy, and a small burst of OC spray may be just enough distraction to increase your success at running away.

Another impressive self-defense innovation is the “Stun Master Telescopic Stun Baton”. These batons can serve a couple different purposes such as:

- You can use them effectively as a flash light
- There’s an in-built alarm system which is shrill enough to pierce your assailant’s ears
- More importantly, just flip the safety and press the trigger and your Telescopic Stun Baton extends into a High-Voltage (800,000 volt) shock emitter

This stun baton is capable of causing muscle spasms, mental disorientation, fear and confusion against your target. Once you have purchased this product, just charging it up (it’s rechargeable, no batteries needed) and strap it to your hip. Your Stun Master Telescopic Stun Baton will make those predators cringe with jolts of pure electricity while simultaneously alerting those passer-bys through its high pitched 120 decibel sound.

The best feature is the telescopic reach. It is 21.5 inches long when fully extended, keeping extra distance between you and your attacker. If your attacker has a stun gun himself, or a knife, you want him as far away from you as possible.

The next time you go out on that hiking trip, stroll in the park or just a picnic in lush green woods, make sure you have Stun Master Telescopic Stun Baton with you. You just never know. We understand that deep down inside, every human being demands a safe and secure environment. Although, we can’t make this world a perfect place, you can certainly gain an upper hand through self defense products.

We get many questions asking on if  Telescopic Stun Batons would be effective on defending against dog attacks. Many of the described attacks are vicious attacks on other dogs and their owners, usually causing injury or trama to the pet. Often, there are more than two dogs are involved and breeds like American Pit Bulls, Rottweilers and other large dogs are typically blamed.

As we certainly do not advocate cruelty or mistreatment of any animal, we do believe in the safety and security of our customers first. Everyone has the right to defend themselves,  others, and their pets from unwanted injury or attack. We have been getting several cases of positive feedback on the effectiveness of these Stun Master Telescopic Stun Baton when used in defense against attacking dogs

The effects of a less-than-lethal stun device on a canine is similiar to the effects on a human, and in many cases, the dogs are smaller in size allowing the device to work quicker. No man, woman or animal wants to go toe-to-toe, or paw-to-paw with 800,000 volts of attitude adjusting voltage, while the extended reach of the telescopic stun baton is ideal for keep some distance between you and the animal or reaching the shorter animal without bending down to its level.

Be Safe, Be prepared.

Dog Bites Boy, Boy Bites Dog. Take That!

Posted by Rob on Sunday, 27 July, 2008

An 11-year-old boy in San Paulo, Brazil is recovering after being attacked by a pit bull dog as he played in his uncle’s back yard. But this isn’t just one sided, the boy actually retaliated and bit the aggressive canine back. A group of stonemasons were working nearby and intervened, chasing the dog away before it could do any serious damage to the boy.

Or perhaps saving the dog from serious damage from the boy. Gabriel Almeida, broke his canine tooth as bit into the dog’s neck. “I grabbed him by the neck and bit,” he told a reported. “It’s no big deal. It’s better to lose a tooth than to lose your life.”

Gabriel needed four stitches in his arm but other than that, came out of the incident only slightly shaken up. Pretty amazing story, pitbull attacks can get pretty ugly.

Mace Muzzle is a specially formulated pepper spray designed specifically for dogs. It 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.

Using the latest ultrasonic technology, the Super Dogchaser uses two ways to repel a dog. One is the discomforting but not harmful high frequency sound, audible to dogs but not to humans. And, the second is a super bright LED flashing strobe that temporarily blinds and confuses the dog. It helps stop the approach of unwanted dogs up to about 40 feet.

If all else fails, don’t be afraid to take a bite out of crime.

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 well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob

More Tips for Encountering Aggressive Dogs

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 22 May, 2008

Being a lead animal services worker for Public Health
in Wisconsin, Pat Comfert has a number of suggestions
on what you should consider if ever confronted by an
aggressive dog.

If approached by a dog and you are not sure of its
intentions, Comfert advises “stand like a tree”. Offer
the animal a decoy, such as a jacket, backpack or
briefcase – anything on hand that may be used if the dog
intends to bite. Anything other than your leg, arm or
other body part.

Dogs will usually use quite a bit of energy when they
bite and then back off. A small tear or hole in your
jacket may satisfy the animal and save you from getting
bit yourself.

Pitbulls tend to bite and lock on to the object, says
Comfert. If you encounter a dog that latches on the your
decoy object and does not want to let go, keep the dog
interested in the object by shaking or pulling slightly.
While the dog is still occupied, back towards a safe
place, such as a building or car. When close enough to
flee, drop the decoy object and slip inside the safe
place.

“Most dogs can run faster than you can bicycle,” so most
people should not attempt to outrun or out ride a dog. If
attacked by a aggressive dog while you are on a bicycle,
Comfert recommends getting off the bike and keeping it
between you and the dog as a barrier or shield. If
necessary, you may even need to use the bicycle as a
weapon.

Some people end up getting bit while intervening when a
dog attacks another. If possible, Comfert recommends
keeping your dog away if a strange or aggressive dog
approaches. If practical, pick up your dog before any
confrontation can start and leave the immediate area.

Specially formulated canine Pepper spray is known to be
effective to stop most dogs. “But on the odd dog out, it
will make him more angry,” Comfert said. Namely, some pit
bulls were bred to fight and may not be as sensitive to
pain as most normal dogs. “Pepper spray won’t necessarily
have the same stopping power with them,” Comfert said.

If you routinely encounter a dog on your regular travel
route who behaves aggressively, you may opt to change to
a different route. “You shouldn’t have to, but sometimes
it’s the best thing to do” offers Comfert.

Your morning jog or walk may not be a big deal, but if
you are in the delivery business, this might not be an
option afforded to you. Mace 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.

It will overpower the animal and he will 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.

Another option is using the latest ultrasonic technology,
the SUPER DOGCHASER uses two ways to repel a dog. One is
the discomforting but not harmful high frequency sound
(20,000Hz-25,000Hz), audible to dogs but not to humans.
And, the second is a super bright LED flashing strobe
that temporarily blinds and confuses the dog. Helps stop
the approach of unwanted dogs up to 40 feet.

Nothing is foolproof, but when in danger, every little
advantage could help.

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 well-being?

Yours in safety,

Rob
