Cases of dog attacks on people – alas! – Not unusual. Therefore, one must always be prepared for such a situation, as they say, warned – it means that it is armed.
If your daily route is to work, studying in places chosen by dogs, then the most faithful and effective tool will be the acquisition of an ultrasound repeller of dogs. Such a device can be searched in specialized pet stores, or in online stores. Such a gut can cost from $ 30 to $ 150, depending on the manufacturer. But, you must admit, this is not so much money for ensuring security: after all, dog attacks can turn into not only bites, but also deaths. The device operates using a high -frequency ultrasound signal. A similar sound acts oppressively on the dog: it experiences a panic fear and if it does not run away at all, it tries to stay from the source of sound (and at the same time from you) away. For people, the device is safe, because it can be trusted even by the child, although it is still not worth sending an ultrasound signal to a person. The repeller is compact and can easily fit in a pocket or bag.
If you consider the purchase of such a device inappropriate, then you should be prepared for a meeting with a dog and remember a few important rules:
It is always better to warn trouble: because, having seen a flock of dogs from a distance, it is better to change the route or hide;
If there is no way to bypass the dog, then say. Wait until it passes by. Do not make sudden movements and, moreover, do not swing at it with a stick. This can provoke an attack;
If the dog barks at you, then, most likely, it will not bite – it demands to leave its territory. The best you can do is to calmly leave, trying not to run, not to fall and not turn to her with your back;
Look a dog in the eye. Feel a threat – grow in, show your teeth;
If a flock of homeless dogs attacks, then it is better to enter into a fight with a leader. The victory over him will cool the rest. After waiting for the dog to jump, step aside and give it under the breath. The missing during the attack can also cool its fuse;
It will be reasonable and correct to remember himself and teach the child not to touch other people’s dogs, do not approach a bitch with puppies, do not tease the dog on a leash, do not interfere when she eats and not make sharp movements towards the owner of the dog so that she does not rush to protect him.
You need to act according to circumstances. Do not cause the dog’s aggression, do not flirt with it – and you will not be interesting to her.
