If you see an aggressive dog approach you, stop and adopt a different posture. Running from aggressive dogs encourages them to instinctively chase you. Instead, stand motionless with your hands by your side. standing still may cause dogs to become uninterested and move on. Also, dont look directly at the dog. The dog may view direct eye contact as confrontational. Instead, look at the dog from the corner of your eyes.

If a dog tries to attack you, giving it a piece of your clothing may be a way to escape. Once the dog has taken the clothing, slowly walk away. Look for somewhere high to hide -- such as on a car or in a tree -- until the dog leaves. if knocked down, a victim should curl into a ball and protect his neck, face and chest from a bite. Keep in mind that you should avoid striking an aggressive dog. This may cause the dogs behavior to become even more dangerous.

For some one who has been in that situation few times, I can give you first hand situation, you have to know the dogs intention, many times it is trying to protect its turf or impress its owner, If it is protecting the litter or turf, make sure you do not move towards the puppies, that will upset the bitch. do not run but move slowly away from the puppies, this usually works, if its the turf war, you have to think quick, go for a rock/thick stick within reach, mostly dog will back-off when it sees you reaching for an object, if it is too close, like few inches from you, stand tall over it and spread both your hands ahead of you (over the dog) so it feels threatened, dogs too are weary of their well being and will back-off specially if your hands are behind their head and behind their vision, this works as well, but you have to really stand tall and look intimidating, look straight into its eyes(Worked for me couple of times). in worst situation its a rabid dog in which case best luck, ...more
