Run, walk, stand, or scream?

If a dog comes barking and running towards you, what are you going to do? Are you going to scream, run, or what? I'm scared of wild dogs barking around while I pass their way. I feel like running but I know the dog will outrun me and then going to bite me. If you are in a situation like this, what would you do?

If a dog comes barking and running towards me, I will not run nor scream because the more we panic the more dog bites, instead I will stand still and bite my tongue, It is some sort of befriending the dog. I did this many times specially walking at nights in our village.

Blum I have experienced in the chase, but if the barking dog often, I wondered to a dog trainer said if the dog can not be mad at your opponent with a shout or run away but if we already know where they are every moment we could use stone or wood for against the dog, do not run or throw stones at an effective but were pelted with stones, set stones as much as possible and they are afraid or do not pass it again though

take it easy ,friends.I am also so scared that I will cry or be silly dew to frigtening when I am a child.buw now I will not be scared any more coz I have a good method to solve that situation. just stand there with calming down and stretch your middle finger pointing dog's eye until the dogs get away. try it and you will find it well.

hello neelia_lyn. me too i'm scared of dogs. if that would happen, i'll just stand still and think that dogs doesn't exist. because the more you panic, the more they will run towards you. keep safe.
