i planted bougainvillea which grew very fast into very thick stocks with a lot of thorns. Just about impossible to get through.

 

I had a 1.8m wall with glass on the top. They rolled up reed mats and placed them on the glass to clear that obstacle. If someone wants to get inside your house they will. The guys who done us were walking around inside the house before my missus woke up and they fled. Back over the same matting they used to get in.

Im just in an apartment but bougainvillea is perfect to stop people climbing round your balcony, and, some bees have decided to make their nest in it as well so anyone that tries getting thru is going to have a fun time

I don't live in Isaan more like western central Thailand. Small village not poor not rich for Thai standards. Nobody lock their door. There is always some women around watching and everyone know everyone. There is many unleashed dogs that barks but don't bite. Not worried at all.

that is funny because i also have a huge bee hive now in my bougainvillea so good luck invaders.

 

also my wall has 8" metal spikes that stick straight up and are spaced 6" apart.

No gates, everyone welcome, standard Thai style grills on windows, nothing really worth stealing, usually family sitting outside their homes round and about, off the main drag, and as said previously, home does not resemble a fully loaded farang abode. No point investing in expensive security or fencing around the home cheaper to replace items.

Currently fencing off our grass from 4 legged intruders, now that is important!!!

Dogs are easily trained only to accept food from their owner(s).

As a training exercise this is true,in real life it has been shown many times dogs will eat/drink when they get hungry.

Dogs however do a good job deterring break ins,thieves do not like barking dogs.

Ooh dear. Hope what happened to us doesn’t happen to you. The gits hppped over the wall, smoked out the bees then half-inched the nest. 

Bees went loco for 24 hours. My wife couldn’t get on the house for a day or so. 

Apparently one of the toe-rags needed hospital treatment for his stings. Such a shame

Not had any problems yard has block wall and sliding gate at entrance. 4 or 5 dogs around all the time the bark but if someone 

came in they’d be in danger of being licked .....

 

No problems that I’ve heard of..  live on outskirts of village.

I lived in a village not far from Reading (Berkshire) for several years.

I had a dog – a big dog. He was a cross between a mutated Labrador, an Alsatian, and I’m sure there were some carthorse genes in there somewhere.

He was HUGE, and as black as Satan’s fantasies.

 

When I’d come home from work, he would bound up to me and put his paws (like dinner plates) on my shoulders (quite often he would actually knock me over!!), and almost lick the skin off my face. I always had to have a shower just after I came home 😊

 

But, as big as he was, he had the heart and soul of a little kitten. Any burglar would have to head straight to the bathroom for a shower to wash off all the slobber, because he would be licked into submission 😊

At least the dog would entertain any unexpected visitor long enough for us to wake up 😊

 

The glory of having him was that anyone who wasn’t one of our friends and didn’t know us, would back off straight away when they saw him, thinking he was the devil incarnate (Even Damien would be jealous).

 

I will definitely get another one like him when I come to live in Ubon. Even if it's only to keep the local meat store in business 😊
