As a dedication to Denny Dahm's, (operator of Terror By Design,) dear departed dog "Hoover" Carl Chetta and
myself created a pretty neat scare. It consists of a 4 foot deep 3 foot
wide dog house with a removable top. Inside is Hoover, a taxidermist
mannequin of a coyote with an incredible jaw set. Carl put the mannequin
together and he sits atop a 4 foot air ram (PVC) just inside the opening.
He went to the salvation army and picked up a fake fur coat and dressed
the mannequin. It looks just like a real dog.
When activated he comes charging out teeth flashing. I envision putting a
recording of a bad dog barking inside the dog house just before activating
We hope that with this effect Hoover will be remembered.
