Lonely,

Try backwards skipping then sprint forward.  We do this with a whistle as the cue to sprint.  This adds an element of reaction time.  Thanks again for being so generous.

Crafty,

I'll snap some pics tonight and send you an e-mail.

An important consideration I look at when choosing a training knife is the length of the blade.  Does it match my carry blade?  This more than any other factor will determine its effectiveness as a training tool in my eyes.  Fortunately I learned this early on in my training when I missed shots that should have landed due to using a slightly shorter training blade.  Even a difference of as little as an inch will effect your accuracy.

One of my students manufactures polymer training drones which are quite thick for this purpose.  He mimics our carry knives.  We've found that even the thick aluminum trainers can cut if they get a bur on them or if they are too thin.

DougMacG,

With cb or walkie talkie type communications using coded messages.  An even simpler method is raising an alarm with a bell or whistle or some other audible signal.  Some time ago the women of my community where being harassed by a pervert.  I armed them with pepper gas canisters and whistles.  The goal being spray and whistle to get each others attention.  They actually took it one step further and when the whistle was finally blown they came running with clubs and beat him quite unmercifully.

On the flip side cell phones and social media is also a great tool for the good guys.  In a shtf scenario getting reinforcements may be very useful.  In a grid down scenario cb's, walkie talkies or even bells or whistles could be very useful for sounding the alarm.  The Koreans in LA , the Turks in the UK and the Cubans in Miami where very effective because they where organized.  I think communication is a very powerful tool the civilian good guys very often overlook.

I witnessed the riots of the 70's, 80's and 90's here in Miami.  During the McDuffy riots they actually bused us out of school.  During the Mcduffy riots I learned many things.  First of all the scumbags are organized and pick their targets ahead of time.  Targets of opportunity will be taken advantage of immediately.  A teen age boy was sodomized by other teenage boys which precipitated the busing of kids out of our school.  The groups divided among racial and ethnics lines.  The rioters planned to loot, pillage, and burn the neighboring Cuban neighborhood.  They where met by a HIGHLY armed group causing them to return and burn their own neighborhood.  Everybody knew what was going on by word of mouth.  With cell phones and social media modern riots will probably be more widespread.  During the time of the L.A. riots we had our own here probably inspired by news footage.

Maija,

Remember dogs are pack animals a couple or even a few go from possibly being a push over to a pack.  A friend of mine came home one day after work to find his dogs had cornered the mailman and kept him there all day.  These dogs are pathetic examples of canines individually.  Doug brought up some great points the no trespassing sign and the motion activated lights are excellent as are the timer controlled lights when you're not around.  I once saw a sign that read beware of rabid monkeys I think that would keep many out and would a biohazard sign grin

All kidding aside I think a signs referring to having a dog are probably best.  Being that you already have a dog you can back up the implied message wink  I have found that homeless people and even low level criminals are usually deterred by such warnings.  Something else that may be useful would be a burglar alarm or even the sticker of an alarm company to deter low level burglars.  All the shooting related stickers I would avoid for possible legal repercussions and to not inspire some jerk looking for guns to steal.

Hope this helps,
