I was visiting a friend a couple of days ago. Upon reaching the floor of his flat I heard a dog barking, it sounded like quite a big dog. Turning on to his floor, I guessed the dog would be on a lead or behind a security door. I was wrong.
This huge dog, (not sure what breed) came running towards me, slobbering with its jaw open. Running wasn't really an option as it all happened to fast for me to turn and flee. I raised my left hand figuring the dog would jump to bite the extended limb while raising my right hand at the same time. In the split second I had to think I figured if the dog jumped for my left arm I'd move it and come down with my right fist to crack the animal on the nose or get an eye strike.
Fortunately the dog was called off just before it reached me. I was pretty glad about that. I have no idea if my improvised defence would have worked or not. I didn't really give it concious thought, I just reacted. And thats what I came up with. I would have probably got bitten but at least I would have had a hand free to strike (given a weapon that would prove fatal for the animal).
Anyway what defenses do you guys suggest. A part from running which isn't always an option, besides most dogs would catch us and we'd still get bit only we'd be tired when it happens.
I thought maybe kicks, but a lot of dogs jump. Any ideas?

Hit a dog on his nose, it's the most sensitive part that you can hit from that position.

I've always thought getting hold of it's head/neck would be the way to go. It only has one weapon, it's bite.
Easier said than done I know, and I'm not claiming to have ever done it, Lol.

I read somewhere that if it has an arm, you can reach behind its head and bend backwards to break the dog's neck.

I wrestle with my girlfriends alsation (not quite full grown) and although I can do a lot of feints to stop it grabbing my arm, he will get it eventually because of his speed and maneouvrability.
As for beating an angry dog that wants to hurt you, thats not going to be easy. The only real way to control them is with a bear hug, but they can squirm one hell of a lot, and the claws will cut you as they try and scrabble out. Other options are beating it soundly round the head as you feint with the opposite arm, and some form of roundhouse to the ribs, but their momentum may still take you over.
The big peroblem with dogs is they have 4 legs, hence have good grounding. Practicing taiji on a dog is great though, seeing if you can make them fall over.
Doubtless wrestlers/ground fighters may have a different viewpoint.

How about next time not be such an uptight loser and pat the dog on the head? If not, just shove your thumb up it's ass.

I know a guy who's dad was attacked by a dog in SA. It wouldn't relax it's jaws and the owner was doing nothing, so he literally caved the side of it's head in with repeated blows from one of his fists.
The damage he sustained from hitting the dog was actually worse than the damage he got from being bitten, which might make sense considering he is a serious karate black belt.
I think the dog was killed as a result.

Try get dog in clinch (with your arm on its neck to keep its deadly jaws away) and repeatly knee it in the sides. If it bite you and it is a male, grab its balls and break it! (I am being sarastic!)
It is a rat eat rat world.

You can't put a dog in a clich.
Try it on a pit bull and post pictures of your severed hand, mangled face, or whatever injuries you incur from trying to fight an dog like a man.
