The act of using just your bare hands to kill the black dog, which stands for fake friends, means all you need to succeed and prove them wrong is right within you.
Killing black dog with a knife dream meaning
A dream in which you kill a black dog with a knife means you will need much patience to prove your enemies wrong. You have what it takes but you need time to sharpen and strengthen it.
The knife stands for all your tools for success which could be your skills, your network, or your capital. It could also be your reputation and sometimes, this takes time to build.
Killing black dog with a gun dream meaning
A dream about killing a dog with a gun means your own inner voice of belief should get louder than the doubting words of those around you.
The people that would want to see you fail either out of jealousy or genuine competition would want to drill words of discouragement into your ear.

Killing black dog with a stick or bat dream meaning
A dream in which you see yourself killing a black dog with a stick or bat symbolizes resourcefulness in proving wrong those that never believed in you.

Killing a black dog with kicks dream meaning
A dream in which you kill a black dog with kicks stands for a realization that liberates you from limitations imposed upon you by those around you.
The act of kicking symbolizes a forceful awakening that frees you from mental prisons, much like a person kicking himself out of a bad dream.
These limitations could be about your relationships, abilities, goals, and/or dreams. Since this involves your legs, it refers to breaking barriers that keep you from advancing into your destiny.
Killing a black dog with a car dream meaning
A dream in which you kill a black dog with a car symbolizes the end of a bad friendship that may have been slowing you down along your journey to your goals or destiny.
The said negative friendship does not have to be necessarily bad. It might be that the person is just not compatible with your aspirations.
