You can never be 100% sure that a dog won't bite you, but there are ways to really minimize the chance. Here are a few tips that have kept me all in one piece over the years: Don’t turn and run—dogs naturally love to chase and catch things. Stand still, with your hands at your sides. In most cases, the dog will go away when it determines you are not a threat. Don’t put your hand out—just allow the dog to approach you to sniff you. Don’t scream. If you say anything, speak calmly and firmly. Face the dog at all times, but don’t stare. Avoid eye contact. When possible, back away slowly, watching the dog from the corner of your eye, until the dog is out of sight.
I know that some of these suggestions might be counter intuitive to "us humans", but remember that we are dealing with a dog who may or may not bite us.
