Dogs follow me dream

A dream about aggressive dogs took place the day after the dreamer had been very stressed out trying to do too much. The dogs - just like the situation - where stressful.

THE DREAM - I was driving a VW polo that I had learnt to drive on and I drove past a house slowly that had two huge dogs (somehow I knew they were two parent dogs protecting their young). One of the dogs followed me down the road to make sure I'd left the area. I felt intimidated but I assumed this was normal. Later in the day I drove back past the dogs and the female one started following me again but when I got a few streets away I found she was still following me. I continued to drive at a normal speed but the dog had no trouble in running alongside the car looking at me with her orange/grey eyes. She was as tall as car. I drove on and no-one seemed to be helping so I sped up and then slammed the brakes on so that she hit the back of the car. This worked and I saw that she was slumped on the ground behind me. I suddenly felt terrible and shocked that I could such a thing so I tried to pull over but I discovers that I was driving the vehicle in reverse so that when I tried to pull over the other drivers got confused and wouldn't give me space to pull over on the side I wanted to. I pulled over to the other side instead and got out as I saw the dog slowly get up run towards me. It bit my hands and I woke up feeling them tingle.

The dream featured the emotion in a totally different setting but this probably links directly to the day before where the identical feeling was experienced.
2. Dogs are pack animals and will exclude any dogs that are not part of the pack. In real life the dreamer was starting a new job and felt a little left out. It was a similar sense of exclusion.
3. The dream deals with issues of speed and in fact uses the phase normal speed. The previous day had been about issues of speed. The dreamer was having to work at speeds which were faster than he could cope with.
