How to survive a dog attack, you should know what to do and should not do to come out untouched,without a scratch……..

this can be nerve racking, ask someone who has gone through this experience he would not wish to go through it again from the close up  barking and aggressive face staring at you

From past experience, you shouldn’t run that’s legit prey instincts and guess who is the predator? (The dog). Most often their goal is to intimidate you , Many angry dogs don’t want to engage in a fight with you unless he was trained to, he is probably trying to protect his territory or family.

The best thing to do when you’re about to be attack is to ignore the dog, stand your ground and back off slowly with your eyes somewhere else, try not  to make eye contact with the dog but keep him in lateral view, call for help.
