Bear Spray Can Prevent Dog Attacks Too!

Now that the weather has gotten nicer, many folks are walking around their neighborhoods and walking paths, taking in the beautiful the spring colors and warmth. Enjoying the warm sun until a dog jumps out of the bushes and charges! UDAP Bear Spray can stop a grizzly bear but it can also stop a ferocious dog as well.

Here is a link to a story where a man was attacked by a dog in Lethbridge, Canada. The dog had never attacked anyone before, the owner stated.  You never know where or when an angry dog will come at you when you are out walking, so be sure to always carry your UDAP Bear Spray!

Travel Safely in Bear Country

Here is a list for traveling safely in Bear Country!
1.      Where should I keep my food?
·         UDAP makes bear electric fences for the backcountry including electric fences for food storage and camping. Keep the bears out with BearShock!
·          don’t leave pet food or garbage in areas where bears can get to it.

Keep your food and equipment safe In Bear Country!

2.      How should people visiting bear country behave
Bears are typically afraid and nervous around people. They will avoid humans. Bears may attack people when they feel threatened or surprised or when forced to defend themselves, their cubs, or their food. You should be careful to avoid all bears. Here are some specific tips:
·         Make noise, let bears know you’re there.
·         Travel in groups. Groups are noisier and there is safety in numbers.
·         Keep your dog on a leash at all times.
·         Stick to worn paths and trails and hike during the day, not at night.
·         Watch for bears for signs of them, including bear tracks and droppings.
·         Avoid areas where you spot potential bear food.
·         Don’t forget to carry your UDAPBEAR SPRAY!
