[RC] Advice on Dealing with "Strange" Dogs - Tamara Taylor

Hi list,

Does anyone have good tips for dealing with strange dogs that run up to you 
while you are riding? We encountered a rather aggressive brute today who was 
heel snapping and barking like a maniac. I tried the soothing "good dog" 
routine but when that failed I resorted to telling him to "GO HOME". Luckily 
Magnum is a pretty mellow fellow or I might have found myself walking home ;o) 
Any tips on dealing with dogs that come after you?
