(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, except there is no need to actually
make contact with the animal, unless necessary, and it costs nothing to use or maintain.
There are future plans to design, manufacture and market a device for Utility and Postal workers.
