Here's another variable. If the dog walker is really cute, then I slow down as much as possible, and then use mvirtue's tactic in reverse: pick up the owner and bring the dog for a ride. If said dog is protective, I use the owner as a shield.

No really, I use the owner in any case. They're more likely to be able (and sort of willing) to prevent you from falling, as they don't want to fall themselves. They will see you reaching to grab them, and will brace themselves. Karma, and karma alone, will determine whether they are cute!
