I thought about taking the dogmatic approach but the guy was friendly enough and I wasn't in the mood to start a pedestrian rage on a lovely Sun afternoon.
Geez, if that's what you call friendly, I'd dunno what it takes to be your enemy. It's easy being smart after the event, but maybe this is the time you need to whip out your camera phone and take evidence that the dog was off the leash. Would be even better if you could include his face and any smirks etc.,. in the frame.
Nice to have convincing evidence in case of any dispute later. Could even be useful to forward to local council with a request that some action be taken.
I'm sure this guy knows the law - but where there is no such evidence, perhaps asking if they know would be inoffensive enough to make your point - if the photo wasn't enough.
"Gee, do you mind if I compose this photo properly while your dog is mauling my leg?"
Ride away, move on. Better things to worry about.
