Where I live, you just bend over like you're gonna pick up a rock, and they generally gtfo. I've had a few chase me on my bike. Depending on the size, I have a few options:

Ride like the wind Throw one of the rocks/beer bottles I keep in my backpack side pockets at it (happened a few times) Step off of the bike and stomp my foot (but usually for smaller dogs)

Animal control is NOT a thing here...I used to be afraid of the hundreds of stray dogs, but I've kinda learned to chill. Most are too lazy to do anything, kinda like the rest of the people here at times.

As a former pizza delivery person, hitting them with the pizzas worked very well.

I was walking with my girlfriend once out on the Pima Indian reservation where packs of wild dogs were known to roam. It was dark out and we heard a pack approaching, barking. Without hesitation she turned around and barked back in the most menacing manner I had ever seen from a 100lb girl. You could hear the pack tuck tail and run. So uh, try that first.
