Hello from a dog lover-
I hope Your predicament improves but it reads as if Your ecological niche has "gone to the dogs" (pun intended) The more I'm around people the MORE I LOVE My dogs but they know their spot. Mine are certified therapy dogs and I don't even let them run around like a raped ape, that is just bad form.
There are a couple things You can do to improve the situation until the human upholds their end of the deal and secure their dog(s). You can fill a can full of beans or similar and throw the can at approaching dogs. If they get closer than You'd like You can squirt some compressed air; a dog whistle is also helpful..
You can also repel the canines with Your thought(s). Next time when approaching the dogs, continue on w/nary a thought of any dogs; act like they aren't even there. Many times the dog picks up on what the human is thinking and then they fulfill that thought. e.g. Don't bolt when I open the door... The dog does exactly that..
To answer Your question at the end: "Because people are A-HOLES, L7 Square LOSERS and most think ONLY of their Self; that is why I LOVE My dogs...

Just carry a camera and gun while out on a casual stroll. If a dog jumps you - you know what to do.
