(U.S. Patent #14-606141 Pending)
The K-9 FAZER (U.S. Patent #14-606141 Pending) Model 16-10, is a revolutionary new piece of equipment that is a non-mechanical,
non-invasive, non-lethal device manufactured and distributed solely to the nations Animal Care and Control Field, to deter vicious, aggressive dog attack/bites
and give the field officer a greater option/chance to survive a bite/attack without injury.
Animal Control Officers encounter dangerous situations involving vicious dogs on a regular basis. It is very much an inherent risk in
the daily duties of an ACO/ASO. In reality, many ACOs/ASOs have little to no "readily available" equipment to deter the "inevitable" attack/bite.
As it has been said many times, it's not IF you get bit, it is WHEN and how bad.
"NOTHING IS 100%, BUT THE K-9 FAZER IS 100% BETTER THAN NOTHING"
According to the American Humane Association:
- An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year.
- Nearly 800,000 dog bites require medical care
- Approximately 92% of fatal dog attacks involved male dogs, 94% of which were not neutered
- Approximately 25% of fatal dog attacks involved chained dogs
- Approximately 71% of bites occur to the extremities (arms, legs, hands, feet)
- Approximately two-thirds of bites occurred on or near the victim's property, and most victims knew the dog
- The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog-bite claims each year
- At least 25 different breeds of dogs have been involved in the 238 dog-bite-related fatalities in the U.S.
- Approximately 24% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs. Approximately 58% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs on their owners' property.
The K-9 FAZER is designed to be carried and used much like a "Taser" would by a police officer, to without actually having to make contact
with the animal, HOWEVER, in the case of a HUMAN AGRESSOR, the OFFICER may be used the K-9 FAZERs "STUN-GUN" feature to STOP the agressor.
There are future plans to design, manufacture and market a device for Utility and Postal workers.
