Hare when people hit dogs to correct them. A change in tone and a simple touch is enough. Glad Bowie could find a better home.

A smelly treat overrides the Guy smell and creates a sense of curiosity and positive anticipation. Dogs that behave fearfully around hand/arm gestures can be taught to Like hands moving toward them when there is a wee fishy snack at the end.
(I'll note for the record: many many dogs have Swinging Arm Avoidance, even when there has been no abuse. Training them out of this can be tricky since it is instinctive, but you basically begin by petting the dog only on the side of its body and head.)
Another thing with dogs is to hold your hand palm side down towards them to let them make the first move. Also under their chin so they can sniff. It's non threatening to them.
