It’s a Dog Eat Dog World — Or Is It?
It’s a Dog Eat Dog World — Or Is It? by Jason Hanson
The notion of prepping is slowly becoming less stigmatized. When people are able to discuss their preparations more freely, it creates a community of knowledge sharing.
Pooling the best advice means everyone can be better prepared for the unexpected. Now, when the SHTF, you’ve got to look out for you and yours. But there’s no us-versus-them in prepping.
Part of my goal for the Weekly Drop is to foster a dialogue among my readership. I enjoy getting your feedback in addition to answering your questions.
So let’s kick off this week’s mailbag with a helpful reminder from one of my readers. And remember, you can send your own comments and inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be aware that in some localities if you post a “Beware of Dog” sign, there is an assumption that the dog, if you have one, has vicious tendencies. So if the dog bites someone under certain circumstances, that foreknowledge will be held against you. And the dog!
You bring up a good point, M.D. Dog bites are one of the most common liability claims on homeowner’s insurance. You should check with local and state laws before posting any signage — regulations can vary depending on where you live.
In fact, in some states it actually makes you less liable if you have posted signs that say “Beware of Dog.” This is because, in essence, you have notified anyone who comes onto your property that there is a dog on the premises, and sometimes dogs bite.
With all that being said, these signs are still a great deterrent for criminals — even if you don’t have a dog.
Can you recommend some spy camera glasses and a spy recorder able to pick up faint sounds?
— James Y.
That’s a great question, James. There are many different choices when it comes to spy camera glasses. One brand I recommend is the Toughsty hidden camera video glasses, which sells for around $65 on Amazon.
