1) Don't Approach
Skunks have very sharp teeth and they aren't afraid to use them, especially if provoked. What is arguably worse however, is the skunk spray that skunk can emit if they are threatened. Either way, its best to keep your distance.
2) Don't Keep Your Pets Outside
Skunks are more likely to engage with dogs or other animals similar in size. Rather than keep your dog outside to deter the skunk, keep it inside so it doesn't get bitten or sprayed.
3) Avoid Ineffective Home Remedies
Some will say that there are natural remedies or concoctions that you can make in order to deter skunks. In our experience, these don't typically return the results you are looking for, its best to hire a pro to remove the skunk from your property altogether.
