Biblical Meaning Of Dog Chasing You In A Dream

If you saw a dream of dog chasing after you, there is always a very deep spiritual meaning behind such dreams. Learn the meaning in this article.
It is not a happenstance if you saw a dog chasing you in the dream. Such a dream also doesn't just randomly show up. It is one of the dreams that communicate a very serious message about the dreamer. 

Different people do see different kinds of dreams about dogs, one of such dreams is a dream about getting chased by a dog

Dreams of dog chasing someone can show up in the following forms:

  • Brown dog chasing me in dream
  • Black dog chasing me in dream
  • Dream of dog chasing and biting me

A dream of dog chasing someone is often a bad omen. Each dream of dog chasing someone reveals that something spiritually harmful is happening in their life. We know that God's thoughts for us are good and not evil. In other words, God wouldn't work to harm us; it is the enemy who always wants to do so. 

Psalm 22:16 BSB
For dogs surround me; a band of evil men encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet.

That said, dreams of dogs chasing someone don't emanate from God; they're not prophetic but demonic dreams. They are always a manifestation of the attacks of the enemy against the dreamer. 

Biblical Meaning Of Dog Chasing You In A Dream

So, if you saw yourself getting chased by a dog in your dream, that is apparently not a dream to ignore or treat lightly. You should rise up and pray to frustrate the works of the enemy against your life. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Dogs Chasing You In A Dream


If you go through the holy scriptures, you will find out that dogs don't represent something good (spiritually). 

In the Bible, dogs often represent;

  • Evil 
  • Uncleanliness 
  • Immorality 
  • Falsehood 
  • Evildoers, etc. 

You can find this in Matthew 15:26, Philippians 3:2, Matthew 7:6, Revelation 22:15, etc. 

In the physical world, a dog is regarded as man's best friend. A dog owner would also likely not think their dog has something sinister in mind, if it chases after them. But if a strange dog chased that same individual, they would always think it wants to bite or hurt them. 

People are afraid of dogs (especially strange dogs) in the physical world, because they can be harmful. Sometimes, dogs can even hurt their owner, so people always take extra precaution when dealing with dogs. 

If a dog chased after someone in the physical realm, their instinct would naturally tell them it wants to bite them. Then how much more in the spiritual realm? If a dog chased you in the dream, it does so with an evil intent at the back of its mind. 

It is important to remind us that dogs in dreams are not ordinary dogs, they're often demons or evil people whom the enemy is using, in his attempt to harm the dreamer. 

A dog chasing after someone in the dream is itself a form of spiritual attack. Secondly, it chases after them not because it wants to play with them but harm them. 

If you happened to see a dog chasing after you in a dream—if it was unable to catch up with you—to some extent you're victorious. But that dream reveals that there's a laid out plot of darkness to harm you. 

The enemy is plotting your destruction in secret, and he has started making efforts to put it into action. The Almighty God shall not allow him succeed in your life, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Dream Of Dog Chasing And Biting 


If you saw a dream of dog chasing you and it was able to get close to you enough and bite you, what you saw is that you just came under a serious spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness. 

A dog biting someone in a dream cannot be a good omen. The effects of such dream can turn out to be very detrimental to the dreamer—both spiritually and physically. 

If you saw a dream of a dog chasing and biting you, on waking up, you should pray aggressively to cancel the effects of such a dream. Do not permit anything contrary to the will of God to manifest in your life. 

Prayer Against Dogs Chasing In Dreams 


  1. Heavenly Father, I ask that You contend with those that contend with me. Fight against those that fight against me. 
  2. O Lord! I ask that You would always frustrate the efforts of everyone who is desperate to hurt me. 
  3. Let everyone working to have be destroyed be caught in their own evil and destroyed. 
  4. I receive power to confront every evil pursuit it my dreams. 
  5. From today, I shall begin to pursue my pursuers.  I receive power and boldness to confront my enemies in dreams. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  6. Power of God, arrest and destroyed every evil dog assigned against me. 
  7. Holy Spirit, expose every unfriendly friend secretly working for my destruction. 
  8. Holy Spirit, reveal and destroy every evil conspiracy against my life around me. 
  9. I cancel every evil plot and handwriting of darkness against my life. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  10. Thank You Lord for the victory you have given me over all works of darkness.

Final Thoughts On Dreams of Dog Chasing You


No one has outgrown spiritual attacks. Spiritual attacks are also not inevitable, but it is the will of God that we are victorious over every form of attack the enemy launches against us.

A dog chasing someone in a dream always indicates that there are evil people around them who are desperate to harm them. 

These people don't only hate the dreamer, but they have an assignment from Satan to hurt the dreamer. Funny enough, these same people may be acting very friendly and loving to the dreamer in waking life, so that they won't be suspected. 

But if God be for us, who can stand against us. No weapon of the enemy fashioned against the child of God will ever manifest in their life, so long they stay prayed up and close to God.

Remain blessed.
