Dogs in the countryside--Do you just not wander after dark?

Recommended Posts

Carry a bottle of water, anything appears squirt water at it, it will in most cases retreat.

One of the worst I ever did was at like 11pm in Lopburi from near the station to my hotel about 600m away, but through no light railroad tracks shackdog country....two things are handy..

 

A monopod....or more commonly

 

A bottle sling with a bottle of water. Knock one of those fleabitten toothsters right out......

Buncha dogs on a street corner in Surin, saw the Thai guy in front of me cross the street and so did I. If he would have kept going past the dogs I would have crossed the street anyway 🙂

Go to one of the Thai markets and pick up one of these boys. Colt M1911 BB gun.

Scares the dogs but no harm done. But, as others have advised, don't be wandering the neighborhood alone at night. 

BTW, wild dogs live in Africa, what you experience is soi dogs gone bad.

I think this may be more effective in terms of both "fixing the problem" along with the TM30. Might be able to just pick it up too at a local market. 🐶🐕🐩

Your correct to be concerned about dogs here, one of the truly sad aspects in Thailand, they have rejected animals that were domesticated and put them back on the street, poor animals have long forgotten how to take care of themselves! They become extremely territorial as a result!

I never go for a walk without at least carrying a stick, stones/rocks work as well.

There are more dogs than people where I live, most are a very sad sight! 😞
