“We’re trying to protect ourselves, and the Bite Terminator gives us a strong barrier between us and the dog”, says Bob Moon, AEP supervisor of field services.
Workers will carry the device in a specially designed swivel holster. The device is spring-loaded, with a button trigger on the handle. It inflates quickly and with a sudden sound to startle dogs. When fully opened, it creates a physical and visual barrier that disorients dogs.
