The area where I reside is in a peaceful and quiet place in Arizona. But because it is very open, there are strays that meander about. I am especially scared of the dogs that litter the roads.

Something came about when I was about 8 years old that resulted in my extreme frightfulness of dogs. Now, I am on the lookout for protection from dogs because of that terrible episode in my life.

I was playing out on the streets with my friends one day, being a typical kid. After a while, it was time to come home and have supper with my family. I did not usually wander far from home when I played so it was a short walk to our apartment.

All of a sudden, I heard a growling behind me. I looked back and there was this big, black dog just staring at me. At that time, I wish I had proper protection from dogs.

I ran away from the dog. He chased me for about 2 blocks and then he leapt and bit me on my right calf. He took quite a big chunk and I had to be rushed to the hospital.

Presently, I try to seek out protection from dogs because I never want a repeat of that occurrence. I discovered the Dog Chaser and was relieved to have found the right fit for my needs.

The Dog Chaser is the complete solution to my dilemma. All I have to do is touch a button and it will make sure that dogs, as far as 40 feet away, would not approach me. The repel mode button would set off the right sounds and lights that would make dogs run the other way.

I would say that this is very humane protection from dogs because neither of us gets hurt. And I now have control over where I can go without fear or anxiety.
