Communication is the answer to the Loam Ranger's issues here. If your buddy's dog is a hassle, ask them to leave them at home, or ride solo, it's really not that big of a deal to communicate how you feel. If the group is so big that you're not comfortable expressing that, perhaps that's a different issue all together, time to ride in more intimate groups.  I agree there are dogs who probably shouldn't be brought out mtb'ing, but most of the trails are hiking trails, and there will be dogs around to watch for regardless. Cater your ride to your preference by choosing riding partners that also care about your experience, and talk to them about it. Pretty simple.
