It seems like you are having a perfectly normal dream. You see a cute dog and reach down to pet it. Instead of cuddling you, the dog bites you. You wake up in a state of terror as the sensation of the dog bite runs through your hand. Was it just a dream or was there a deeper meaning to the dog bite?

dog bite spiritual meaning

Experiencing a dog bit in a dream can be traumatic and emotional. Dream meanings vary depending on the situation, symbols and location of the bite in the dream. While the dream interpretation can vary, there are a few common interpretations for this type of dream.

If the dog bites your right hand, it represents the masculine side of nature. It may also represent strength and activity. The left hand is thought to represent gentleness, femininity and generosity. If the dog bites your hand, it generally means that someone is trying to control you. They may be using words, slander or gossip to try to hurt you. If it bites your right hand, it hurts your masculine hand. If the dog bites your left hand, it means that someone is harming your feminine side. If the dog just bites your fingers, it may mean that you are losing skills associated with the side that the dog bit.

When a dog bites your arms in a dream, it generally represents something going on in your working environment. Often, it means that someone is being aggressive at work. Someone at work may also be trying to betray you.

Legs typically symbolize life and being balanced in life. If the dog bites your ankle or leg, it may mean that you are living an out-of-balance lifestyle. Often, the source of this imbalance is someone you care about. If your feet are bitten by a dog, then it means that your foundation is being shaken apart by a person that you trust. Your toes have a different meaning as well. Typically, toes are a part of your legs’ structure and help o keep you balance. When your toes are bitten, it shows that you do not want to try a new situation or you are hesitant about moving on.

When a dog bites your shoulder in the dream, it shows that you are overwhelmed by your responsibilities. In some cases, it may also mean that someone near you is making those responsibilities even harder to bear.

When a dog bites your eyes or ears in a dream, it shows that someone you trusted emotionally is preventing you from observing or experiencing the world in the way you wanted to. If the dog bites your neck in the dream, it shows that someone near you is driving a wedge between your heart and mind. This may be creating an inner conflict between what you think is the right thing to do and your feelings.

If the dog bites your face, it shows that an issue has developed because of someone near you. Other people may be able to see the situation that is confronting you, but they might be unable to help you deal with it. If you are bleeding from a dog bite in your dreams, it shows that there is a confrontation with someone near you. You may feel guilty because of a physical or emotional fight with that person.

When a dog only attempts to bite you in a dream, it shows that you have inner conflicts about someone close to you. The conflict has not truly risen to the surface yet, but your subconscious is already aware of that possibility.

If the dog is trying to bite a bone in the dream, it actually represents a more auspicious meaning. This means that you are trying to understand the future. You know what you want out of life, but you are not certain if that is what the future holds yet. Meanwhile, a dog biting furniture shows that someone may try to hurt your home life or family. It may be a close friend or family member who is hurting the tranquility of your home or marriage.

  1. I am scared of dogs in real life. Today I had a dream that one dog was running towards me and my cousin. We were trying to be safe but at the and that dog grabbed my left hand with his mouth and attempt to bite me. I was so scared and screaming. I felt his teeth on my fingers and tried to push that dog but it didn’t work. I wasn’t bleeding to though. But I felt like my hand will start bleeding soon if this dog won’t let go of my hand. Then my mother woke me up. It was already morning and I was scared to death when I woke up.
    How should I interpret this dream? Is it just because I’m scared of dog ? Or does it mean something else ?

    • It may mean that someone is trying to control you or harm you in some way. The location may also mean that this relates to your work. In some traditions, dream interpreters believe that each hand reflects the feminine and masculine sides of human nature as well, so it is possible that the harm is being caused to that side of yourself.

  4. I had a dream about walking with my dog and my family and a brown dog approached us. It looked like a golden retriever and its face looked rather odd. It didnt look normal, it had a big face and forehead and its eyes were far apart. It stands in between me and my dog and I reach down to pet it and it bit my part of my left hand with my pinky finger and it wouldnt let go. I’m looking at it like WHY ARE YOU BITING ME IM NOT TRYING TO HURT YOU. And then I sort of yank my hand out of its mouth once I felt it loosen it jaw. It was just standing there too not doing anything but looking straight. And for some reason I reach back up with my right hand to pet it again. (I dont know why I would do that after getting bit the first time but hey, it’s a dream and couldn’t control what I did.) So it gives me an angry look and bites my right hand this time but before I even got to pet it. It sort of rushed at me. ( I was bent down so it knocked me down.) As this happens my dog wants to attack the stray dog but my husband stops him as the dog is only interested in attacking ME. I woke up soon after.

  6. I had a dream of 2 dogs both half back and half white. One was actually biting my right hand the other one I was holding off/back with my left hand.

  9. My brother has killed many dogs. Last night I dreamed he had a pretty dog that couldn’t stop chewing its own leg and before I knew it, the dog had almost entirely skinned himself.

    • It sounds like your brother kills dogs in your waking life. This is terrible. If you are aware that he has killed dogs, then you should speak with law enforcement about his behaviors. If he has recently harmed an animal or another person, then immediately inform the police. Your dream is a reflection of your knowledge and possibly your inaction regarding his behaviors. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Meena!
