Dog Pepper Spray and Sonic Vicious Dog Repellent
In the past five years, roughly 30 to 35 people have died from dog bites. Each year, there are approximately over 350,000 dog bite victims. Many are joggers, runners, cyclists, and outdoor recreationists. In many cases, dogs bite their owners. In all these cases, it would be safer to have a vicious dog repellent.
A dog repellent is exactly what it sounds like it is. It will keep a vicious dog away, preventing it from attacking you or a loved one. Shooting a dog outright is illegal, and animals do have their own set of rights as well, but when they attack, you still need something to protect yourself.
There are generally two types of dog repellents you can choose from. Both of these are effective and non-lethal means of self-defense against vicious, attacking dogs.
The first and perhaps the most common type is dog spray such as the Mace aerosol dog repellent spray. It’s basically pepper spray with a slightly altered formula so it is safe against dogs but still strong enough to push them back away from attacking.
The ingredients in pepper sprays contain a level of oleoresin capsicum or OC, which can cause temporary blindness and difficulty breathing. A well-aimed spray can cause enough pain to stop even the most threatening dogs.
It is an effective and quick-to-use dog repellent when walking since you don’t need to worry about battery life, safety pins, and others. You can even keep it on your key chain.
In cases where dog pepper spray is not enough, then the best solution is an electronic dog repellent. These are small, handheld devices that can do two different ways of repelling a vicious dog.
The first feature is its unique ultrasonic sound. The sound is around 20,000Hz to 25,000Hz, a sound well beyond the normal hearing of a human being. Humans can’t hear the sound, but dogs will find it so discomforting that they will immediately stop attacking.
The other feature is its LED strobe lights. The lights confuse the dogs and can intensify the effect caused by the ultrasonic waves.
Many people prefer the dog repellent electronic ultrasonic device because it does not harm the animals. Pepper sprays are non-lethal, but they can be painful. An electronic dog repellent on the other hand is just a discomforting sound wave, but in many cases, it is just as effective as the Mace dog repellent spray.
Remember that even the tamest dog can suddenly turn into a vicious attacker. Sometimes it might due to territorial issues, food, or simply because the dog was annoyed or unintentionally threatened. You could be on your own lawn when the neighbor’s dog breaks loose and attacks you.
Keeping a dog repellent with you can be the only means of preventing any harm from happening to both you and the dog. A quick spray or burst from an ultrasonic dog repellent can disable the dog, ensuring that you won’t get bit and that the dog would not have to be put down by the authorities.
