εἰ κύνα μὲν ἂν ἐπειρῶ κτλ.: that while you would try etc. For μέν in logically subord. clauses, see on i.4.17.

εἰ ἦν, ἠσπάζετο, ἐχαλέπαινεν: all in prot. to ἂν ἐπειρῶ.

τοῦ ὀργίζεσθαι: for the articular inf. with ἀμελέω, see GMT. 793.

αὐτόν: i.e. τὸν κύνα. For the use of this pron. to recall the main subst., cf. ἐγὼ μὲν οὖν βασιλέα ... οὐκ οἶδα τι δεῖ αὐτὸν ὀμόσαι An. ii.4.7

φῂς μέν: correlative to οὐκ ἐπιχειρεῖς, but δέ follows ἐπίστασθαι because this is placed first in the sentence.
