The most deceiving words owners tell their dogs when they see an on-coming dog. Excited, nervous, anxious owners say 'friend friend' out of habit, dogs learn that this command means excitement and it often backfires because of that.
Carry on your own walks, dogs don't need to greet every single dog just like you don't greet every single stranger. If you think your dog needs to make friends on walks, you are probably delusional.
On leash greeting is where dogs learn to make enemies.
