Spiritual Meaning Of Dog Attacking You In A Dream

When you see dogs attacking you in a dream, such dreams often mean more than you may think. Read the spiritual meaning of dog attacking you in a dream
I understand that seeing a dog attacking you in a dream may be a scary experience. For some people who already have fear for dogs (for some reasons), the experience may be even worse. 

Probably you saw a dream of dog attacking you, and you're on here to know what it means, let's trust that you get the meaning by reading this article. 

On our website, we bring you dream interpretations from a Biblical and Christian standpoint. So you know what to expect. Let's trust the Holy Spirit to help us decipher your dream of dog attacks. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Dog Attacking You In A Dream

In the physical world, a dog may be man's best friend. But in the spiritual realm, the case isn't the same. Dogs in dreams are not really dogs, that is why even though a dog may play with you in a dream, it does so with evil intent. 

Philippians 3:2
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilators of the flesh." In this verse, "dogs" are used metaphorically to represent false teachers who lead people astray.

If you go through the Holy scriptures, you will discover that the Bible does not portray dogs in a good light. This doesn't in anyway mean that there's something wrong with your lovely pet dog, it simply means that dogs spiritually represent the opposite of what they are to man in the physical world. 

  • In Philippians 3:2, dogs are portrayed as evil workers. 
  • In Revelation 22:15, dogs are attributed to violence and aggression 
  • Deuteronomy 23:18, dogs are ascribed to prostitution. 

We can go on and on about the negative symbolism of dogs, as seen all over scriptures. But this is to let you know that you shouldn't entertain dogs in your dreams. 

Dog dreams are not godly dreams. It's either God is revealing to the dreamer what the enemy is doing against them, or the direct manifestation of the enemy's attacks against the dreamer. 

Seeing Dog Attacking You In Dream


That said, there's nothing harmless about seeing a dog attacking you in the dream. What you're seeing isn't a real dog being aggressive. You're seeing a direct and deadly spiritual attack from agents of darkness. 

That means each time you see a dog attack you in the dream, you should understand what the enemy is plotting and trying to achieve. You should pray aggressively to counter-attack and destroy the works of darkness against your life. 

Being Meaning Of Dog Attacking You In A Dream


Dogs are descendants of wolves, the flesh eaters. A dog would comfortably devour the carcass of a man or animal, given the opportunity. The Bible likens evildoers to dogs. 

Psalm 27:2 ESV  
When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall.

That is why we see in the scriptures, the Psalmist prays against evil doers who are bent on eating his flesh. Like the Psalmist, you shouldn't welcome or pet spiritual dogs. You should pray against them. Their presence is always sinister.

If you see a dog attacking you in a dream...

  • There are people who act like they're your friends in your waking life but secretly hate you. Dogs in dreams are enemies who are experts at disguising as friends.
  • You are experiencing attacks from demons. Demons sometimes take the form of dogs in the dream, especially demons of lust and perversion.
  • You are seeing a deadly witchcraft attack. Witches and warlocks sometimes appear as dogs in dreams.

These enemies don't attack anyone out of their good will. They attack because they want to destroy their target. The effect of dog attacks in dreams are very deadly and can manifest in so many ways. 

Now that you know what dog attack in the dream means, the right thing to do is to not be friendly with any dog in your dreams.

Some of those who message me for dream interpretation always go like, “Oh, I saw two dogs in my dream. They were not aggressive. They were playing with me.” No, you're actually playing into the hands of spirits of lust. Their charm is in their playfulness. They're luring you into welcoming them into your life. 

Resist dogs in dreams!

Final Thoughts On Dog Dream Attacks


Contrary to different opinions around the internet, dogs in dreams rarely represent friendship or companionship. Dogs are only man's best friends in the physical world, not in the dream.

If you have been seeing dogs playing with you in dreams, you need to stop entertaining them. Start praying they stop coming and leave you alone.

Dog attacks in dreams are very deadly spiritual attacks—which may stem from diverse departments of darkness—as I've mentioned in this article.

The ememy comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). Dog dream attacks are meant to destroy the dreamer. That is why you should take it seriously whenever you see dogs attacking you in dreams. Always pray against the dogs that attack you in your dreams.

God bless you.
