Police were forced to shoot at one of the dogs.

"Due to the extremely aggressive nature of the dogs, and the ongoing risk to human life, a police firearm was discharged to stop the attack," a spokesperson for WA Police told in a statement.

One of the dogs received serious injuries.

The second dog was secured in the garage until council rangers from the City of Cockburn arrived.

The woman was left with serious wounds on her arms and legs and was taken in an ambulance to the Royal Perth Hospital for treatment.

Council rangers seized both dogs and the City of Cockburn is investigating the incident.
