The owner of the property concerned requested delivery of a parcel. After delivering parcel to door turned to exit property and was attacked by 2 dogs.
When almost to the gate I was rushed at by a black dog that bit me on the leg from behind, I had not seen this dog at all and turned quickly to fend it off whilst trying to exit gate.
Then, another brown dog (also not seen prior) was released by the owner, it turned out the owner was in the yard with the dogs the entire time, the brown dog very aggressively charged at me teeth out, growling and barking. I was able to wrench the gate open and leap through it, slamming it shut just before the dog was able to attack me. The brown dog then kept charging and jumping on the gate barking aggressively. Then owner quickly appeared and I left.
No physical injury was sustained.
