I was bitten by our neighbour's dog when I was a kid. I was eyeing those ripe guavas on their tree. These were kind of mean neighbours who never shared anything. I did not know the dog was not leashed. I climbed the compound wall and went for those guavas and their dog went for me.

Be happy. I was bitten by a acrobatic monkey when I was about 9 or 10. Had to go to the hospital for dressing change for at least 3 to 6 months. There it was with its owner and I innocently walked past it, and then it attacked me for no reason. Perhaps my leg look like a drumstick? Yea, now I can laugh about it, but back then, I could almost believed I told my parents I am going to die from it. Maybe that's why I am a little mischievous nowadays. Which would you prefer? To be bitten by a dog or a monkey?

ehh...kind of. I was walking home one night , and for some reason a really old men was walking his dog( it was around 3 a.m, and it was a huge dog), I had some..smoking materials in my bag, I guess the dog caught on, and then started to freak out. he got away from the owner easily and started chasing me , tackled me and I fall( again, a really big dog lol). he didnt bite me he just tried to get to the beg, but It was reeealy scary. I left the beg, once the owner came he managed to get him under control

Same here. I have been bitten by our neighbor's dog when I was a kid. I ran fast to escape, but unfortunately, the dog was faster than I am, so I ended up being bitten on my legs. I went home crying. lol *memories

I was bitten by a dog when I was a child. It was on my ankle and it was kind of traumatic to me. But I must of done something to provoke the dog. I still love dogs and I have a dog right now. She is a beagle and her name is Princess.

We have had dogs all our life and none behaved badly with anyone. But this dog was as ferocious as the residents (lol)

I have never had a serious bite from a dog. I have been nipped on my hand by a small dog once. I was holding it and I did something wrong and it nipped the top of my hand. Barely even broke my skin. It is my understanding that dog bites really hurt.

Understanding a dog is so important as we will then know why they resort to biting.

I have been nipped on the nose a few times by our pup when she got too excited. She is trying to play, but she's too rough and she's no little bitty thing either. When I was a kid, one of our dogs bit me on my foot I pet her with. We were eating and she was under the table. She must have had some food. I developed this weird phobia about my feet after that.

Sad that your own dogs did it. There are situations when the most loved dogs take to this. Both times when they did that to you could be explained.

Thank God I have never experienced that. My late dad never allowed me to go out of the house when I was a kid
