Animal Repellents

Humans aren’t the only ones that can pose a threat to us. Sometimes our furry neighbors can endanger us, however, just like humans there’s sprays out there to defend ourselves with.

Dog Deterrents

Dog Spray

This is an effective deterrent against any type of canine attack, including those that occur in public areas. Its effectiveness is similar to that of human self defense sprays, but it lasts longer and does not cause permanent damage to dogs. Capsaicinoids compounds work on both animals and they’re found in chili peppers. These chemicals irritate the eyes, nose, throat, skin, and lungs. They act as a natural repellent and may prevent further attacks.

Electronic Devices

Our electronic deterrent systems emit an annoying noise that dogs find unpleasant, discouraging them from approaching certain locations. These devices are safe to utilize. The noise produced by these machines can’t be heard by humans, nor do they contain any harmful substances. There’s no electrical current used either, which means the dog won’t feel any discomfort.

Bear Deterrent 

Bear spray disrupts bears’ breathing, vision, and sense of smell, allowing you to get away from them or attack them.

Bear Spray vs Pepper Spray

Bear spray and pepper spray are not the same, and they should never be used interchangeably!

For bear attacks, it is crucial to bear in mind that you use bear spray and not pepper spray. Bear spray is used to protect yourself from large, wild bears, whereas pepper spray is used to protect you from human attackers.

Both pepper sprays and bear spray aren’t lethal in most situations. However, if you shoot someone with bear spray, they could go to the emergency room because of the high volume, pressure, and strength of the product. Bear spraying someone is like pepper spraying them 10 times the amount of a normal pepper spray. 

For protection against other humans, you should stick with pepper spray. On the flip side, pepper spray isn’t strong enough for bears.

Be aware of your surroundings

Before any outdoor activities, familiarize yourself with the wildlife in the area.

Bears tend not to approach humans unless provoked by something else. Most humans don’t even realize that bears are nearby until they’re right next to them. It’s always better to be prepared for a worst scenario than to get caught off guard.

Be careful when hiking on trails known for their abundance of wild animals. It may be tempting to run through them, but doing so could provoke an aggressive response from a predator.

Have your bear spray easily accessible if you see any sign of bear activity (tracks, feces, torn up logs, scratched trees, etc.). Our bear sprays also come with a belt holster so you can keep it close and at the ready.

When you’re faced with a situation where there’s no other option than to confront the animal, try to stay at least 20 feet away from it and aim for its head. Spray in a long burst so that the mist rises and gets inside the animal’s eyes and mouth. Then slowly back away from the animal. Do NOT run as this can provoke the bear to follow. Continue to spray at it in short bursts and the bears will most likely run away from you.

Other things you need to be aware of include wind, rainfall, temperature, and the distance between you and the bear as these can affect the effectiveness of bear spray.
