Perhaps the maze signifies some confusion on your part about the direction to take on some important issue in your life, or in your life itself.
The dogs may represent your past letdowns, or fears of future disappointment. Are you afraid of dogs?
Again, the switches (is it always the same switch popping up in different places?) may represent options, opportunities, choices, some type of
crossroads that may hold a determining factor, or shed light, on your effort to escape the dogs and the maze.
In your dream, you avoid the dogs, then a switch appears beside your head, but instead of helping you, you know (sure enough) it brings the dogs back;
as you kneel, they tear you up. Are you sobbing in fear? sadness? hopelessness?
To me, in affect, you are possibly being overwhelmed by fear (the dogs), when presented with what must be a (or some) very challenging crossroads (the
switch(es)). You barely get a second to catch your breath from being chased by the dogs, when the switch appears and brings them right back.
I believe we all must face and embrace our fears to come to terms with them; force them out into the light of day. On closer inspection, they aren't
nearly as scary as they seem. If we give in to them, they only become more incessant and demanding. We must lean into challenges, make hard choices
decisively, and make the best of outcomes.
I hope your dream goes away. I can't stand to think of those dogs getting to you like that over and over in your dreams.
