Hello /out/, serious question - how do you deal with aggresive dogs? Do you have any stories?

If it's not on a leash and running at you then mag dump.

well, fear can be encouraging to dogs for some reason. screaming like a girl will certainly make it worse.

Feral dogs innawoods get shot, or at least maced and then ideally stomped to death.
Dogfuckers be warned, don’t leave your mutts offleash. Your domestic vermin harassing native wildlife isn’t cute, and shooting them is protected by law.

punch or hit their throat with whatever is available the moment they charge. had to do that twice so far and both times, it ended the actual attack immediately witht he dog running towards it's owner for protection and only barking and growling at me.

In theory, if they actually manage to bite on, stabbing their atlas (the place where the spine meets the skull) is probalby the fastest way to kill.

Yesterday I was out fishing a canal that has houses lined down it with wooden fences. It was riddled with big piles of dog shit everywhere so I knew one of the home owners let their dogs out to shit there instead of the backyard.

So I ride my bike every day, and along my commute is a little rat that keeps barking at me and getting in the way of my bike. I'm not afraid of being bitten, I just don't want to run it over but since the owner just lets the dog run wherever the hell it wants to go I have to slow down and practically walk my bike the next quarter mile. What should I do?
>>
I've never had a problem with them. Unless you're acting like an autist or acting aggressively (especially towards their owner) it's pretty rare for them to attack.

I got attacked by a dog when I was still in school. Ended up with my hand in it's mouth squeezing the ever loving fuck out of its lower jaw while I stabbed it in the brisket until it expired. Got 18 stitches in my hand and a pretty bad case of the shits from the antibiotics they put me on. Overall, I think I would recommend shooting the fuckers if you have the means, it was not fun.

take 5m to tape a note to their door you are not responsible if your dog gets underfoot or runs into traffic chasing you. Just wear long pants. Let law enforcement know you've contacted them. Always wear a helmet for when it gets caught in your spokes.

>>1452845
Should've pressed charges, man. I've had two pitbulls, both well trained, loving, family animals. Also, both never let into a situation they could escape from, just in case something just like this happens. Pitbulls are loving, loyal animals. They do, however, have a strong hunting instinct. If someone is going to own one, they need to take care of it properly

End result two dead pits and a cat with PTSD. Now that I have a trained german shepherd cat is warming up to dogs. Letting an unruly dog roam free is asking for it to be gunned down or euthanized

On the trails it’s not uncommon to have a dog run up and sniff you and ask for scratches. Stick to the city park if you’re too dumb to recognize the difference.
His hiking buddy attached. Also off leash in national forests.

>>1453150
I get that. I’m seeing others in here that are willing to “mag dump” on literally all dogs off leash in the backcountry or city. There are places that all dogs need to be on leashes. I walk mine off leash when /out/ and when the law allows. Obviously aggressive dogs should be leashed. Don’t jump to conclusions when you see a dog running around legally or you might have to deal with a pissed off gun/dog owner.

Off leash is a death warrant and shows the owner doesn't care. So yes off leash is aggressive and I will enjoy your sobs and screams more than the dogs dying whimpers. Your dog deserves better than a dog raper like you

>>1453293

The scenarios you're talking about deal with dogs that are at least somewhat trained and have owners that are confident enough to let them off the leash while on public land. If you're walking down the road past a run down house and a large dog comes running at you barking, then that dog is likely to be territorial and possibly aggressive. When I'm walking down the state park trail and a dog runs up ahead of it's owner I'm not threatened because it's most likely been accustomed to meeting people on the trail. Those probably aren't the dogs that are being mistreated at home, the ones that aren't socialized and rarely see people other than the owner.
>>
>>1448075
>dirtbiker

Ok buddy, you're just as bad as leashless dog owners. Probably worse. Every dog without a leash I've seen just wags his tail and greets me. Every dirtbiker tears up the land and makes a bunch of noise.

If someone shoots your dog it's not a big deal don't bother getting mad just get a new one. Dogs only cost like $20 and black ones are free because people noticed they are more violent and since you are a faggot who likes violence by letting your dogs run free to attack people just go ahead and get a free disposable nigger dog
>>
>>1453293
I'm gonna shoot the dog
>>
>>1447946
Ive been attacked by dogs a few times when I was younger. As a result there are only a few dogs in the world I trust.
As a result I always keep my bayonet on hand when out and about, and usually either my trench club or shovel as well. Im also working on some forearm armour (for my STALKER suit, but also good for this) made out of kevlar pads.
If a niggerdog attacks then I will try to get to somewhere it cant/will have difficulty reaching if I have the opportunity, otherwise I try to kill it before it gets me. Also got my bow and sling sometimes as well.
>>1453293
Context. There is a big difference between a friendly dog running up to say hello, or being curious (which I still dislike because of the above) and a mad mutt charging up to attack, snarling and barking away.
>>1453050
This shit happened to my neighbour. for context we occasionally get gyppos (basically trailer trash chavs who dwell in cars/campers/caravans and live off crime and get away with it by claiming to be travellers and a minority, not to be confused with actual romanian gypsies who are great people)
>Get back from camping at a festival
>Neighbour comes over, clearly depressed
>"Anon, Anons family, check your cats are okay"
>"Why neighbourfriend? Whats the matter?"
>Neighbour breaks down and tells us that gyppos have moved on to the local supermarkets carpark
>White niggers let their shitty mutts out to hunt pets and wildlife for food
>Two of them chased her cat of of the park and into the street
>It was literally under 4 feet from there house and safety when the mutts caught it
>She and her husband heard the commotion and got to the window in time to see their 1 year old cat be torn apart by two feral mutts

Depends on a case by case basis, but dominant behaviour over the animal from as young as possible keeps them in line. Choke chain works too
>>
When I lived in rural Thailand there was always a group of street dogs that would give everyone a hard time on one part of the road. Everyone would just grab a stick before they walked by to keep the distance, and some would toss them treats until they became friendlier
>>
>>1453386
Where do you people even live where dog attacks are so common you feel the need to wear anti dog armour? I have been doing /out/ activities all my life and never once been approached by a hostile dog off leash, neither in the city or outside.
>>
>>1453762
As I said, it is for my STALKER cosplay rig, but you get families around here that decide not to bother training their dogs, or even worse some chavs who train their fucking niggerdog (guess which breed, fucking GUESS) to actively go after people and cats. I saw one training his mutt to catch cats as they climbed trees to escape, teaching it to jump and hold on with its jaws to a dangling rope.
>>
>>1453169
But my dog is aggressive, so I keep her leashed. When your dumb dog comes running up to her, I have to yell and kick to keep them apart. Leash your dog faggot

you are a fucking idiot, fuck i hate dog owners. if your shitty trained dog is rushing people and getting physical, its your fault if it gets fucked up. you have no telling what kind of experience people have had with dogs in the past and no one deserves to die just because your dumbfuck shiteating pit bull hasnt been trained and no one can tell whether it's jumping them to steal the food out of their hand or to eat their face
>>
>>1453293
Your dog should not:
>Be charging at strangers
>Be jumping on you or anyone
>Be trying to eat people's food, especially from their hands

>Be invading personal space
This is not cute or admirable behavior at all and you're a failure of a dog owner if you allow this and you have only yourself to blame when it's put down
>>
>>1447946
It depends on the circumstances. I lost a few cats after a neighbor's dog managed to hop my fence, which I now consider shooting on sight.

If a dog bolts up to me on a trail and I can't see the owner then I consider the above, but I generally don't like killing animals. A dog doesn't deserve to die just because it's owner is a bleeding heart retard.

Working a roofing crew when I was 20 out in the boonies, had to kill a German Shepherd with a claw hammer, not a fun thing.

bend down, maintain eye contact with the dog. This is the dangerous part.

Pick up a rock, or pretend to pick up a rock.

Hurl your real or pretend rock at the dog.

Repeat until it fucks off.

Dogs seem to instinctively understand you can throw things at them, and they hate it. Just my experience as a sometimes homeless person. Homeless people constantly have to deal with bad dogs. I got bit a couple times before I figured out the trick.

The first thing you want to do is figure out whether it is being aggressive or territorial. The second thing you want to do (while determining aggression) is pick up a nice rock that fits snugly in the palm of your hand

If the dog stays on whatever side it approached from it's being territorial and wants you to go any direction but the one it's guarding. Stay calm and try to show the dog that while you don't really care about it's threat you are watching it. Then move casually away in a direction other than the one it's guarding. It will follow you so keep an eye on it and if it drops into your periphery turn and raise the rock with a death glare because dogs are predictable and it will try to get at your legs from behind if it thinks for even an instant that you aren't paying attention but will also back off if you make it realize it's not going to get a free attack in. If you absolutely need to go in the "dog's" direction treat it like an aggressive dog because it will be one soon.

An aggressive dog will circle you and bark less but will still come in close when your back's turned and bare teeth when you turn and catch it in the act (a pet that's just playing won't feel the need to bare teeth in that situation). Start out with the same strategy of intentional disinterest but if it starts nipping at your heels or if you have a small kid with you just kill it. If you happen to trip or stumble it will be on you in a second. You're in the right, it's a dog. Don't let it take anything from you.

I got attacked by a big rottweiler once. I was wearing steel toe boots and kicked it as hard as I could 8n the mouth. It ran away whimpering and the dog owner started yelling at me and I completely flipped my lid on her.

The dog knocked me over and all the skin on my knee was scraped off
