While a lot seek stun guns, pepper sprays and knowledge of self-defense so that they can be able to deal with attacker and thieves, a lot of people also fear animals. One animal in particular is the dog, and not those cute French Poodles, we are taking about the big and nasty Doberman, Bull Dog and Pit Bulls. There have been many recorded attacks that were a result of wild dogs becoming overly aggressive or the result of carelessness of the dog's owner. Some recorded attacks even ended with the death of innocent bystanders who were assaulted by the blood-thirsty hounds.
One of the most interesting approaches to solving this issue and making you feel safe was developed by Mace, a brand that is famous for their pepper sprays in general. They came up with a simple and effective canine repellent that you can take around with you while you are jogging, riding the bike or put it inside your car, bag, purse etc.
It is the ideal protection for:
- Walkers and joggers
- Runners, sprinters, athletes in general who practice in the outdoors
- Those who work with delivery
The Mace Canine Dog Repellent is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and will not cause any lasting harm to the animal. The Muzzle can be used as a normal pepper spray which you may even be used to. Just lift the safety cap and burst fire towards the animals face. The effect should be instant and drive the dog away.
When facing the animal be sure to hold your ground, stay calm and stand strong. Hold your head up high and don't make any sudden moves. It is a like a stareing contest to some point. You can always choose to slowly walk backwards and away from it, but don't run (unless you can reach high ground quickly) or turn your back on the animal. Be prepared to use the Canine Repellent as soon as it comes after you.
The unit has 17 grams and can provide 10 seconds of burst. The maximum range is about 8 to 10 feet.
