It depends. Normally, I just roll off the throttle and roll it back on. The sudden loud burst from the exhaust seems to slow them down, if not stop then completely.
It just depends on the situation. If you see the dog first and he's running towards you it normally works, but if he darts out unseen it might be a different story.

it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity
