Not in all situations the dog is a devoted friend and guardian. Sometimes these animals behave unpredictably, aggressively and can pose a danger to humans. Therefore, you need to be able to drive the dog away without pushing the situation to the limit.
It is necessary
- - pepper spray;
- - ultrasonic repeller.
Often, what you think is aggression from an animal is normal behavior for a dog. If you entered the territory that the animal considers its own, you want to pet the puppies, take the dog's bowl or toy, it will be difficult to drive it away at this time - the animal is convinced that it is right. It is better not to provoke such situations, or do it in the presence of the owner. By the way, the relationship with the owner of the dog also has its own nuances. You know that you just want to pat a friend on the shoulder in a friendly way, and a devoted dog may think that you have decided to encroach on his life and immediately stand up for the owner.
If on the street it seems to you that the dog is overly interested in you, try to ignore it. Even if you are afraid of dogs, do not show your fear and continue to go about your business, while, preferably, without turning your back on the animal. Most likely, the dog will soon cease to be interested in you.
Take a close look around. If the owner is walking near the dog, it is best to ask to remove the animal.
You can drive away shy mongrels by simply shouting at them or throwing a stone in their direction. The dog will most likely run away from you with a squeal.
However, with large, self-confident dogs, this method will not work - it can only provoke the animal. If you know that you will have to go through the area that stray dogs have chosen as a place of residence - an abandoned construction site, a wasteland, it is better to arm yourself with a gas canister. However, not all "human" gases will affect dogs. It is best to choose peppercorn.
There are also special ultrasonic dog repellers. The essence of its work lies in the fact that when turned on, the device begins to emit sounds that are not audible to the human ear, but extremely unpleasant for the animal. The repeller is small in size and can be carried in a purse or pocket.
