Dog Dazer II
The Dazer II Ultrasonic Dog Deterrent is a great way to stay safe while you are entering a customer’s backyard. Over the years I have been bitten by several aggressive dogs and in almost every case the customer either let the dog out on accident or forgot to put them away. I carry Mace on my truck for extreme emergencies but the Dazer II is per friendly and perfectly safe.
For me, one of the biggest hazards of my job is aggressive dogs. Most of the dogs on my route are very friendly but there are those certain dogs that the customer puts away on the service days. I have even had aggressive dogs escape from a neighbor’s house and come charging out their front door at me. You never know what a dog will do and you can never rely on the customer or even the neighbors to keep their aggressive dog from attacking you.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a big dog lover. I carry all kinds of treats on my truck and the dogs on my route can’t wait to see me each week. The last thing I would want to do is to harm any dog and the Dazer II is perfectly safe. It confuses the dog more than anything. The Ultrasonic noise keeps them from focusing and even the most aggressive dog I have used it on doesn’t get close enough to bite me.
The Dazer II is small enough to carry in your pocket or clip it on your belt for easy access. After using on a dog for a couple of weeks all you need to do is pull it out of your pocket and show it to them and they will stay away. It is very simple to use, just press a button and point it at the dog. So far it has held up well and after using it for a couple of months I highly recommend it.
Here is more from the manufacturer:
“Using the latest ultrasonic technology, the DAZER II produces a discomforting but not harmful high powered sound, audible to dogs but not to humans. Help stop the approach of unwanted dogs at up to 20 feet. Also, a useful aid in training dogs. Made of lightweight high impact plastic, the DAZER II features a belt clip and low battery indicator, includes an alkaline battery and is MADE IN USA.”
I find the Dazer II to be highly effective and I carry it in my pocket when I am entering a customer’s yard with a dog. In the video, you see that the customer forgot to close the backdoor and the dogs were in the yard when I entered. The Dazer II kept the dogs from biting me as I carefully left the backyard and went back to my truck. If I wasn’t carrying the Dazer II these dogs would have bitten me for sure. You can see the aggressive stance they took and without the Dazer II, I would have not escaped.
I also use the Dazer II on barking dogs that can be aggressive at times. The Boxer in the video always charges at me and tries to sneak up on me while I am servicing the pool. With the Dazer II she backs away quickly and stops barking immediately. Of course, if the dog is old and deaf it will not work but in most cases, the device is very effective. I feel very safe entering any yard with the Dazer II.
