SALT LAKE CITY — Within the last year, KSL has covered at least five severe dog attacks, and this week’s vicious attack on 6-year-old Wyatt Abraham is number six.

In several of these cases, there was nothing the victims could do to prevent the attack, but there might have been something they could do to help minimize the damage.

Abraham was playing soccer in a neighbor’s yard this week when a pit bull’s chain snapped and the dog attacked him.

Over the last year, an 11-year old girl was also attacked by a pit bull and had to have reconstructive surgery.

In May, a group of Rottweilers severely injured an 11-year-old boy, and in July a 5-year-old girl was mauled by a neighbor’s husky.

How can you protect yourself?

Dr. Rick Campbell, veterinarian and founder of the Willow Creek Pet Center, said he’s been working with dogs for more than 30 years and in almost every attack, the dogs are not properly socialized or trained.

“Dogs will always be protective of their surroundings,” Campbell said. “It’s what we do with our dogs. If we want them to be good then we train them. We socialize them.”

But if a person or his or her child is ever caught in a scary situation, Campbell said they need to either become a tree or a log.

“If a dog tries to attack you then you just cover your eyes and stand still,” Campbell said. “The dog will just think, ‘this is boring.'”

The dog’s owner wrestled the animal off of Wyatt earlier this week, but as Wyatt began to run away, the dog attacked again.

“Do not run,” Campbell said. “Do not scream.”

If someone is not just approached but attacked by a dog, Campbell said to always keep one’s hands over his or her face and ears.

As tragic as these situations are, Campbell said they can be learning experiences for everyone, especially pet owners: “I would encourage training outside of the house,” he said.

Pet owners have a major responsibility, Campbell added. Most dog experts advise owners to not keep their dog on a chain as it only makes them frustrated and more likely to bite someone.

Below Are My Top 10 Suggestions For Controlling Traffic If SHTF

Below Are My Top 10 Suggestions For Controlling Traffic If SHTF

Below Are My Top 10 Suggestions For Controlling Traffic If SHTF

There are a wide variety of disasters that could potentially effect anyone of us and we should stop and spend some time thinking how we could potentially redirect, divert or detour traffic from coming in or around our homes if the situation got bad enough. In the video below I talk about what I think are the Top 10 Ways To Control Traffic If SHTF.  If you prefer to read I have the ways typed out for you below. Also feel free to print this page as a .pdf file and include it in your emergency binder as well to give you ideas should you ever need them.

In stuff hits the fan ( SHTF ) situations, vehicles can drive over curbs, through front yards, and around roadblocks. Plant ( evergreen, pine, etc. ) trees around the inside of the property line all around except the driveway entrance. This controls vehicle entry/access. This needs to be done long before SHTF. Then control driveway access at time of SHTF. This is defense in depth or jawbreaker security or whatever you wish to call it. You should still employ the measures listed here as well to provide security from a greater distance. Additionally those nails may not stop the approach, but may prevent or slow the getaway/exfil process. The attackers may drive in, but may not necessarily be driving out. Sweeping away the nails may be impractical for a fast infil. The nails are small enough to go unnoticed by those with less attention to detail and awareness.

Additionally evergreens are a good windbreak in winter. Deciduous trees are good shade in the summer and are best planted further inboard from the property line. See Pg. 106 of “Tom Brown’s Field Guide – City and Suburban Survival” for more on these. He also has a wilderness survival version that’s probably the best book on the subject. It’s best to keep all trees at least 30 feet away from any house, building structure, etc. for wildfire reasons. http://www.firewise.org now redirects to another website but still has more info on this. It’s against the law to have a fence that harms people who try to go over it. It’s not against the law to have thorny bushes all around the property line too. In ROL, criminals are paranoid of forensics getting a blood or skin sample, so most will not cross such bushes or “take on the dog”. Small dogs are good emp/cme/grid down- proof alarms.

Good stuff! Thanks for adding your thoughts to the conversation!

Your Welcome, sir! I have a request for a youtube video and article here on realitysurvival.com ( wilderness Survival category? ). I have literally watched every youtube video you have and read part of this site. I downloaded, read, and agree with your survival e-book ( I have the training too, and dirt time, and have had navigation issues on the trail ). This is entirely your choice of course, but I wish you would do a youtube video/ realitysurvival.com article on your survival experience with that blizzard as you and your friends ( I saw the picture you posted from before the blizzard hit ) navigated off of Mt. St. Helen’s using a button compass. There is compass training for a map compass, and directions for a compass like the Suunto M-9 ( that I EDC with a 20mm Nato watch strap, I saw and also agree a navigation quality compass is better ), but I have seen nothing on navigating with a button compass. Did it have a baseplate and rotating compass rose like in one video you did or was it basic like the video on the CRKT ( altoids tin sized ) mini survival kit? What were your methods and techniques of navigating with it? I would also like to see many of the videos on your list ( per the comments of some videos ), but this would be the video/article I most wish to see.

Thanks for the request! I will add it to the list!

Magento – AdWords Conversion Tracking

Magento – AdWords Conversion Tracking

When you use Google AdWords to receive more traffic, don’t forget to track the traffic. AdWords Conversion Tracking is a free tool to help you understand how many users actually buy products or services from you.

Installing AdWords conversion tracking codes is pretty straightforward.

Open the file /app/design/frontend/your_interface/your_theme/template/checkout/success.phtml.

Find the following code in the file.
<?php echo $this->__(’Your order # is: %s’, $this->getViewOrderUrl(), $this->getOrderId()) ?>.
<?php else :?>
<?php echo $this->__(’Your order # is: %s’, $this->getOrderId()) ?>.
<?php endif;?>

Add the following code under the above code. If your success.phtml is customized, add it at the end of the file. In most cases, it should work.

To look at the conversion data from Google AdWords, generate reports as follows:

Reports -> Create Report -> … ->
Add or Remove Columns from Advanced Settings (Optional) -> Choose conversion related columns.

AdWords Conversion Report

This code is to track conversion rate for regular sales.

Worked like a charm! Thanks for the concise tutorial. I edited in the php for the order subtotal into the noscript part as well, although it’s probably not necessary since Magento requires javascript.
