My previous dog which looked like a dingo (with foxy colour?) was so frequently swooped by magpies that she learned to take cover under thick shrubs.  In the worst affect area, Federal Colf Course, she ran from a shrub to shrub.  In the same area I saw a Golden retriever harassed by magpies as well.  My current dog, white terrier mix, is regularly swooped by noisy miners but not by magpies.
