Techniques that will save you when attacked by a rabid dog. Remember once and for all!

Приемы при нападении бешеного пса

Stray (stray, street, stray) dogs - dogs that are on the street without an escort of the owner, who is responsible for their behavior and conflicts with people, or who never had one.

On the streets you can find a huge number of stray dogs. Especially there are a lot of places near markets, grocery stores and residential areas, places where you can profit from something. The unfortunate animals are not to blame for the fact that they had terrible owners who left them to their fate. But these dogs can pose a great danger to passers-by, because in a pack they can get angry and attack, in addition, they can act as a source of infection, such as rabies.

We will tell you about tricks, how and what to do if you find yourself near a pack of stray dogs and some of the dogs decide to attack you. In this situation, the main thing is not to get confused and be very careful.

Self confidence

Like any other animal, dogs feel helplessness and fear. Try to pack up and not think about anything at all if the dog comes up to you with clearly aggressive intentions. Look into his eyes closely, if necessary shout “Fu!”, “Get out!” - the words should be short and loud.

But all of the above is canceled if the dog suffers from rabies. It’s best to stay as far away as possible, and if she is next to you, then move away slowly and without sudden movements, controlling the dog with your gaze.

Distraction maneuver

If the dog is already aggressive and has begun to rush, try to distract the animal with any piece of clothing. Sacrifice your favorite jacket or even a bag: 40 injections in the hospital are not worth it. And even worse - injuries that will last a lifetime.

Ignore the barking

The mistake of many people is that when they hear a dog barking, they start to startle, turn around, or even run away. Remember: if the dog decided to attack, then you will not hear any barking. The maximum is a muffled growl. Barking, the dog tries to drive the stranger out of his territory.

Do not turn your back or even sideways to the dog. So the tramp will decide that he really managed to scare you, and will hasten to consolidate his success with his teeth.

Aim at the throat

If the dog starts to attack, try to find your back support, so that he could not knock you to the ground. Take off your jacket or use the bag and hold it in outstretched hands in front of you. The animal will grasp the object instinctively and will pull. Without wasting time, kick the animal with your foot in the throat.

Hand sacrifice

A dog can attack at any time, and you will not always have an object with you that you can use for protection. Here we must try to minimize the consequences of the attack: get up to the attacking dog in a half-turn and put your hand forward. When he runs closer, sharply put your hand forward.

The dog will react to the movement and cling to the forearm. Ideally, you need to kick the animal in a jump, if it doesn’t work out, take it to the ground with your weight and try to hit the dog as hard as possible so that he gets scared and lets you go.


The worst is waiting for someone who is faced with an aggressive flock. There is no time to lose, but you should not fuss either. Also, one should not begin to defend oneself from the leader - usually this is the largest and strongest dog in the pack. Everything that he does is repeated by other dogs: barking, attacking, nibbling. Beat the one who tries to bite first, or choose the dead mongrel. A successful kick may be enough to make the whole flock run away with a squeal.

Items of protection

Ideally, you need to have a gas spray or injury with you in order to be sure to protect yourself. But if you let the child go for a walk and know that a flock of dogs runs along your street, especially for a walking bitch, then it is better to buy a spray bottle or provide the child with hair spray.

If there is nothing like that in your pockets, and not even stones are nearby, try to defiantly pick something up from the ground and swipe it. The dog instinctively reacts to a familiar threat: there is a chance that she will simply run away.

Remember these tips, because you never know when trouble will happen. And also do not provoke dogs and treat them kindly, they are your friends!
