If the dog continues to snap at you, position your body side-on and fold your arms. Don’t try to run away, the dog will become more excited if you try to run away.
If the dog is trying to bite you, try and block the attack with something you are carrying, such as a bag of chips or a piece of paper. If you feel that you have been bitten, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Can you kick a charging dog?
If your dog needs to be thrown into a fenced area, lean into a wall. If the attacking dog is able to jump the fence, do not kick or punch the dog. Get yourself, your dog or your pet out of the area after the attack is over.
What to do when an aggressive dog approaches you?
Stay calm, and back away slowly. As you slowly back away, speak to the dog in a soothing tone, instead of screaming or yelling. Don’t make eye contact with someone. Staring in the eyes of an aggressive dog may prompt him to attack. If you can’t get away, call your local animal control agency. They may be able to help you find a new home for your dog.
What happens if you punch a dog in the nose?
Tapping or bopping a dog on the nose can be misconstrued as playful behavior, and being too rough with your dog can actually trigger biting, reactive, or defensive behavior. When your dog is still learning how to interact with people and other animals, you should be more sensitive to it.
Where can I punch my dog?
If you don’t have a weapon, you will need to rely on punching, kicking, and gouging. The easiest place to hurt the dog is in the vital area. The dog’s ability to hurt you will be weakened by this. If your dog bites you, don’t try to fight back. Instead, run away as fast as you can and call for help. If you are attacked by a dog, call 911 immediately.
Can you pepper spray a dog?
Using pepper spray on dogs during a dog attack will disable a canine attacker just the same as a human attacker, but keep in mind that the effects are temporary. The effects of the dog attack pepper spray will only last a short time to get you and your dog out of harms way.
Can you Taser a dog?
Carrying a stun gun to prevent dog attacks in puppy park settings is not a good idea. Dogs are known to die. Though tasers are considered relatively safe for humans, they are often deadly for dogs. Don’t think about carrying one in a dog park.
It’s just that I don’t think it’s a good idea to carry them in the first place, and I think I’ve said that enough times to make it pretty clear. If you’re going to have a gun in your dog’s mouth, you might as well use it to kill it, not to keep it from biting you.
