I don't have a fierce dog, I have two cameras online at the moment, the weather is holding up installation at the front of the house, but they are a good deterrent. They also provide evidence for any potential prosecutions that may arise.

I have one of those, the 'duster' bit is 'charged' with static so the dust sticks to it quite well. I did 'damp dust' when we first moved in this new house as it had stood empty for quite some time.
