Hello, Chitose wonder chick here again.



It's might be weird and I don't know where else to ask,
but I want to know about when human have to fight against dog.

... A Military Attack dog that is...


I try looking in internet and I found only how to handle when people get attack by normal dog.

What I think at first is, Full growth men are physically stronger than dog, The reason they lose is because they lose their clam fear and panicking.
But my friend says that Military attack dog is whole other story, They strong, smart, fast and deadly.

So, If someone need to fight against Military Attack dog, how should he do it? which part of dog body he should hit to knock it down? or temporary handicap them.

and another,

If someone have to break the pursuer of dog while It tracking his smell, how should he do it?

.........................................

I'm a novelist so, in my case is my main protagonist have to fight against two military dog at once. (well... he two or three time stronger than normal people and have a well train 'hand in hand' combat.)

He escape dog pursuer by scatter strong spices around place to blind dog nose, can it really work?


Thank you in advance

English is not my native language, forgive me If I'm wrong in spelling or gamma.

Military attack dogs are the same species as any other attack dog, I don't know why you should expect to have to hit a different part of the anatomy.

As far as spreading spices around to escape: that doesn't work. Mythbusters tested it.

Those dogs aren't left alone to fend on their own. Anyone who has to take on military canines are going to have a few guns on their heads, too.

I think the point is that attack dogs are skilled and well-trained, so techniques that might work on a regular dog might be a bad idea on an attack dog.

For example, a regular dog, not being skilled, might make a clumsy, instinctive attack, simply jumping up and biting its victim (go for the waving arm), thus exposing its vitals to three other limbs; whereas a trained dog might use its momentum to bowl over its opponent and land on top, thereby ruining the opportunity for a counterattack on its vitals.

Alternately, an attack dog might sink its teeth into the victim's neck, setting itself up for a killing blow even if the victim tried to counterattack.

I make no claim about any of the above having any truth, except for the concept that a trained dog would likely require different techniques to combat.

Attack dogs are generally trained to attack limbs to debilitate their target to ease apprehension. I guess a attack dog could be trained to go for the throat to kill. A pair of attack dogs would work together in a similar fashion to a wolfpack. They would attack at different angles and move at the same time. Depending on how large they are an unarmed human being would have a difficult to impossible task in taking them both on at the same time. Dogs can recognize a weapon and would avoid something like a knife or log, but I would think your chances would be better using something like this.

For a novel, I would figure that to survive an attack by two dogs it would behoove your hero to avoid getting taken down to start with. I would figure at that point it would pretty much be over.

Stay to the outside and try quick 1-2 combos?

If you can get them on a hardwood floor they're pretty much screwed

Have you ever compared the relative speeds?
I have dodged more than one car. The only reason that I escaped the bullet is that the guy was a lousy shot.

Now that would make for a novel scene in a novel!

You might escape the dogs, but what about the puppies?

Woops, I found the myth buster that you mention.

From what I watching, It almost impossible to break pursuer form dog... Dang it, I have to rewrite my work again.

only one way I can think of now is... Tear gas. think dog can handle it?

..........................

about fighting the dog, the last method I think of is, wrap it up with both arms, and smashing it to ground with entire human body weight like a Wrestling, I don't think I can withstand 60 kg. falling on top of it.

Ok, I'm going to have to say that a dog could not handle tear gas. Having been exposed to tear gas I can say I could barely handle it and I knew what was happening.

A dog would not understand why it was experiencing the pain and discomfort and would most likely react by running away from the area.

Pepper spray would work best IMO. If you can prepare for it wrap your forearm in something and "give" it to them and keep forcing it into their bite but you'll have to hold their head from behind because besides biting you they are playing tug-of-war and if you just push in their direction to give it to them they just take a few steps back and do more of the same. Eventually there will not be enough leverage for them to bite. Outside of that stick anything down their throat thats available including your hand.

Be advised though that usually a working dog on a police force or with the military carries the same protection under the law as an actual law enforcement officer as far as being assaulted by you.
