The Baw Baw Shire Council is seeking witnesses to the incident, which occurred at around 17:00 on 16 June.
A council statement explained the man was walking his beagle on a leash near the lake when a black dog rushed toward them.
The black dog chased the beagle, which slipped its collar and ran away.
After attempting to attack the beagle, the black dog started attacking ducks near the lake.
Neither the beagle or the man were injured in the attack.
The victim told the council a young man and woman riding scooters or bicycles were calling the black dog to return to them.
When approached by the victim, the pair refused to respond and rode away.
The council has asked that anyone who may have witnessed the attack contact the community compliance team by calling 5624 2411 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
