Infographic – how to survive a dog attack

This is a really cool infographic on how to survive a dog attack by Art of Manliness and Ted Slampyak. I’ve taken this from the website. Although the infographic is copyright protected by the aforementioned person and organisation, I believe that I can publish it on my website due to fair use and because of the fact that publication on another website has been allowed by the authors of this image. I hope that they will allow it here. It is a very good and very well constructed infographic which needs to be utilised, if I may say so, to educate people. I have provided a link to their website as an act of courtesy.

Here is a video as a backup to the infographic. The technique is slightly different to that stated in the infographic.

Note: This is a video from another website which is embedded here. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.

I have watched the video and it seems to me that the key is to switch off the impression in the dog that you might be a threat. At the same time, you’ve got to switch off the predator instinct in the dog. They chase fast moving objects. This is a predatory instinct. And if you turn sideways on but stand your ground you present less of a threat. And you might want to try distracting them as explained in the video by throwing something away. A dog might instinctively chase it. And if you have to fight the dog you should try and immobilise the head to prevent the animal using their teeth on you. Protect the face and neck and clinch your fist to avoid fingers being bitten. Perhaps of all these the first instinct to run needs to be countered. You need to stand firm without eye contact. Once again this is to eliminate the impression that you are a threat to the dog.

At heart this site is about ANTHROPOCENTRISM meaning a human-centric world.
