I used to look at a dog as it approached and tried "reasoning" with it by tossing out a few gentley spoken, "Good boy" or "Good Doggy" comments. All the good that did was one day get my leg bit.

Staring off in the opposite direction as the dog approaches seems less threatening to the mutt. Although, shooting the sucker between the eyes has crossed my mind once or twice, I prefer it just ignore me. What seems to work is if I ignore it.
