Your child is walking home from school or maybe even a friend’s house when they come face to face with a ferocious dog….what should he do?
Most kids are going to run out of fear. Most children are not told what they should do in a situation like that so they try to get away, which in return, causes the dog to chase after them.
It’s really difficult to explain to a child that they should stand still and look away from a dog that appears as if it wants to attack. Although this is better than running, the child would be scared beyond measure and would probably panic. Not only that, but what if the dog attacked anyway?
There are too many instances of kids being bitten and attacked by dogs to just hope it never happens to your child.
The inexpensive Electronic Dog Repeller uses a non-harmful high frequency sound [heard only by dogs] and a temporarily blinding bright LED flashing strobe to ward off an approaching dog.
There is no harm done to the dog and the would be victim is able to get away safely. Now that’s a win-win situation.
This device can also be used as a flashlight and is great for all outdoor activities and all ages beyond preschool.
There’s also Mace designed specifically for dogs. Canine pepper spray pretty much has the same effect on dogs as regular Mace has on humans. This would result in the dog experiencing a bit of pain for a short period of time.
Another drawback would be that it’s not practical to give a young child Mace of any kind, if that’s what you need it for. However, it’s perfectly fine for young adults and it doesn’t rely on a battery like the Electronic Dog Repeller.
With summer fast approaching, will you be safe from an aggressive dog? How have you prepared your children to handle such an encounter?
