HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST DOG ATTACKS

Walking in the desert, or even in your own neighborhood, can be a relaxing way to exercise but encountering aggressive dogs can be terrifying and dangerous. Managing editor Tami Roleff offers these tips about how to protect yourself if you are threatened by loose dogs…

Dog attacks can be vicious and bloody. Reduce your risk of attack by being prepared. If you can, avoid walking in areas where loose dogs roam. Dogs in packs are especially dangerous. If a dog threatens you, don’t turn your back on it or run away, as dogs can easily outrun you. Don’t make direct eye contact. In a firm, loud, and deep voice, tell the dog to SIT, STOP, or GO HOME. Carry protection with you on walks, like a golf club, walking stick, stun baton, or pepper spray. If a dog charges you, use anything handy—like the club or stick, or a purse, or backpack, as a barrier between you and the dog. If you are attacked, shove the club or stick or your arm—wrapped with a jacket—down the dog’s throat and push hard. Wait to spray the dog with pepper spray until you can spray it directly in the eyes.
