    That's a tough one! I would never go empty-handed against a viscious dog and would first try to run away. But if a chase happens and I wasn't fast enough, I would opt for a utility blade as defense.

      My Opinion

      I once had a guy sick his German Sheppard dog on me. He was trying to scare me and told me that his dog would be able to take me out in a second no matter what martial arts I could do. I told him that if he wanted his dog to get seriously hurt to go ahead and do it. He told the dog, "Get him, boy! Sick 'em!"
      That dog was like a bolt of lightning, the dog was about twenty feet away and within a second he was almost in my face. At the time I was in TaeKwonDo for about 6 years. Without thinking my "fighting" mentality kicked in and I timed it absolutely perfectly and I did a spinning 180 roundhouse kick that was straight out of a Jean Claude VanDamme movie. I nailed that dog square in the sid eof the head as he lunged to bite me.
      All I heard was "CRACK" and that dog went down like a ton of bricks. I just stood there, I was more shocked than the owner was, in a fighting stance. The dog picked itself up and yelped all the way back to the owner and hid behind him. The owner almost wet himself after my display and he quickly went back in his house all the while he was swearing at me that next time I wouldn't be so lucky.

        one of the more painful but worth while ways, is when the dog attacks you, grab it's lower jaw and keep it low... it keeps the dog from being able to bite, thus rendering it unable to attack you...

          I read on another forum that if you pull the dogs front paws apart very sharply it will kill the dog. I don't know how true that is though. I do know the snout of a dog is very sensitive so I would strike him on the nose.

            I find that a little hard to belive, but then again, doing that may break the rips, and puncture the heart..

            i don't reccomend killing dogs, just being able to defend yourself against them...

              I dont know whether it actually works or not. But I know if I am being attacked by a dog you can guarantee I will try it.

                Anways i would reccomend a staff, walking stick or some sort of club. But hear is a link to another thread about dogs. I wouldnt suggest trying to get down log with the dog where it is closer to your throat to force its legs appart. I would say that it would be more of a on the ground technique, like when the dog has you down and is close to your throat anyways.

                      I suppose you could always purchase one of those loop things that you see them using on Animal Cops, but pearsonally a regular walking stick, or staff is easier.

                      sarcasm bro, it was sarcasm. Seriously, though, your opinion is dead on.
                      go check out the debate on highschool wrestling and please tell me what you think about the argument there

                        Would a staff weapon work against other animals as well? I usually go outside with my Bo, and where I live there are a lot of animals free to roam around spontaneously. I've even seen a bull walk in the street once eating things along the way. And about the dogs... I'm sure I can handle a dog attack with my Bo, but what if there are a multitude of hostile dogs?

                          Well besides a Bo I also train with a Rapier, but I usually keep that very hidden in my car when I go outside. I guess that wouldn't do any good, so I should probably get a small knife like you say. I know where to get quality crafted types, so I guess I'll just do that. It could help against other animals too. I don't knowing about the walking sticks but since I've been training with the Bo for a long time I guess I could figure it out (I could figure them out especially if they're like Escrima Sticks, but again I don't know about that).

                            Actually I started out with a wooden Bo, but after seeing it start to crack and get grass marks I got an aluminum one (nice blue color, too). This one was heavier but I got used to it and can now move it with ease. The "unweildly" idea that some people place on the usage of a staff is not so farfetched, but also not close to being true. After much training and practice you can weild it fast, easy, and efficiently. It seems that book is pretty long (judging by the Preface and first chapter), so I'll take my time. Bo, Rapier, Knife, and walking stick seem like my best bets for defense as of current (before I look into any Martial Arts schools). And I don't know why I spell weapons with a capital, I'm just used to it. Thanks for the information.

                              Kicking the dog on its side like the ribs, or the belly with a roundhouse (hook) or front kick. With either kick the front point of the shoe should be used like in Savate. If you go for the jaw or neck or throat be sure to snap the kick very fast back (recoil). If you follow through with the kick like in Muay Thai be sure to move your kicking foot as soon as you follow through without planting it because if you plant it, the dog might bite the foot especially if the kick didn't land fully.
                              Of course you are much better off with a stick and 2nd choice would be a knife.
