  • A String of dog attacks, Lead to a Fatal Dog Attack of a Woman

    On May 9th, in the Antelope Valley town of Littlerock, Pamela Devitt was killed in a fatal dog attack. She was 63 years young.

    Here is part of the original fatal dog attack news report:

    Numerous strays also roam the desert. Residents say Littlerock has become a dumping ground for unwanted dogs.

    "A car will come down the street at 40 mph, slow down and a door will open," said longtime resident David Cleveland. "A dog will be pushed out. It will tumble once or twice and let out a yelp, and then the car will take off."

    The dogs then head for the desert, where they meet other strays, Cleveland said. "And when you have five to seven of them in a group — that is a very dangerous situation."

    For years, residents in Littlerock and other towns in the High Desert have complained about stray and vicious dogs. Then a woman was fatally mauled by a pack of pit bulls May 9, resulting in murder charges against the dogs' owner this week. Now, both residents and Los Angeles County officials are vowing to finally do something about the problem.

    Neighbors say they carry sticks, rocks and even guns to shoo away the animals.

    "You just have to do whatever you can to get them away," Carolyn Eslick said. -- Read More about Fatal Dog Attack

    I must finish this blog by saying, I am very much a dog lover and I have owned a Pit Bull in the past. He was a great dog and never once was aggressive to me, my children nor anyone else.

    That being said, I have always been a responsible dog owner no matter what breed was part of our family. It is the owners or former owners of these dogs whom I blame in vicious and unnecessary fatal dog attack.

    Tragedies like this fatal dog attack are a failure in personal security, I am in no way implying that the victim has any fault in this situation, only that we should learn from it and if one person is saved from a similar fate, maybe this fatal dog attack is not in vain.

    TKW Self Defense Personal Security strives to help prevent this type of tragedy, through awareness, knowledge and personal security training.

    I am very sad for the family of this woman and hope this tragedy can somehow prompt others to increase their awareness of the types of personal security that will increase survivability in such a situation.

    Carrying some dog pepper spray or a dog chaser with you may be just the personal security tool needed..

  • Pointers On How To Defend Yourself From An Unfriendly Pet Dog

    In order to keep myself physically fit I run for about 5 kilometers every morning. But our area is full of dogs which bark at me each and every time I pass by their homes. There are even instances when I have to change my course given that a number of dogs chase after me.

    Getting a shot for a dog bite is a bit expensive. And although it is included in my health insurance I do not want to get bitten by a canine simply put. So if I wished to carry on running I needed to get the appropriate kind of self-protection like dog pepper spray in particular.

    A dog spray is non-lethal to both dogs and human beings although it should not be utilized on the latter. Likewise pepper spray intended for humans should not be used against canines.

    A dog repellent is a non-combative tool for protecting yourself. That is it doesnt provoke a canine to attack you. Rather it wards it off.

    What I wanted was a product that was authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be sure that it was indeed risk-free for dogs.

    I checked on the net for effective dog sprays that were EPA-approved and stumbled on the Mace Muzzle dog repellent. It was claimed to be perfect for use by mailmen joggers cyclists newspaper boys and delivery guys.

    This particular defense spray for dogs features a flip-top safety cap to prevent any unintended discharge. It could spray up to a range of eight to ten feet so you can take comfort in knowing that the dog will not need to be as near to you as possible before you spray on it. The 17-gram cylinder features 10 one-second bursts. Thus in case your aim is inaccurate you can have another go at it.

    The morning following the dog pepper spray was brought to my house I began taking it beside me every time I ran. Today I can run wherever I would like as well as just change routes whenever I want.
