Be mindful of your behavior.
If a dog seems like it’s about to attack, you need to behave appropriately. Do not make eye contact with the dog or square up directly toward it. A dog may interpret these behaviors as aggression and attack to defend itself. Instead, put the side of your body toward the dog and slowly walk away looking downward.
Be cautious.When you cross paths with a dog you don’t know, you should act with caution. Stay still and remain calm while the dog passes you, and say “no” or “go home” firmly if it comes too close. If you meet with a dog of a friend, let it come to you by offering your hand (palm down) for sniffing, avoid eye contact, and be silent while the dog becomes familiar with you.
