get a water pistol or spray bottle and fill with water and bleach, a few squirts in the face should make them back off

 

 

Theres no need for bleach that could potentially blind a dog, water alone would turn the dogs away. The dogs are just doing what is natural and protecting their turf, its the owner who needs to be responsible.

Some good advice here.

 

It mainly seems to be a confidence thing. I personally don't give a <deleted> about all these aggressive dogs. I'm not scared or impressed by all their antics. I don't get excited at them or shout at them. I just hold my ground, ignore them and keep doing my thing. 

 

If one did have the cheek to really go for me, well, I would take it on and teach it who is the boss. Maybe dogs can somehow sense that underlying confidence (and hidden aggression) and are wary. Anyway, so far it has never got down to physical violence and I don't expect it ever will.

No dogs are agressive if they dont feel that you are weak.

When a street dog is coming, i should louder than him and walk towards him.

It NEVER happened that a dogs tried to face me longer.

Sorry to tell, but the problem is you.

Also, you could buy a fridge, so you dont need to got out in such a dangerous road !

Dogs can smell fear!  When I got here I kind of watched the locals regardless of how aggressive they might be time yes looks like they are going to bite they just keep walking pay no attention to them once past their territory they just turn back it seems their bark is worse than their bite>

 

As time went on I did my jogging took a stick along just for good measure copy the Thais the best I could and it worked out for me the ones that seem 50/50 I dropped them a treat the next time.  There are times on my motorbike come out and chase me I pay not attention I also cycle a lot and from time to time they rush out and try to bite me but I just act like I'm jogging and continue to pedal at my regular speed.

 

Last year this homeless dog sleeps under a car next to my house I was in a hurry didn't pay attention and the dog came out from under and took a bite I knew what happened right away and knew I will need treatment I had sense for sometime he was sick. I went into the house got out my samarai sword it saw me coming and took off the Thai neighbors thought I was crazy going after him gave me dirty looks I went about my business and got the shots a few months later the same dog went wild bit a number of kids and Thais in the neighborhood before they corner him and killed it. I sat outside while they were all running around like rabbits smiling! I said to the wife clinic 5000 baht?🤑

I used to have trouble with my morning jog. A bamboo stick is light to carry, but was heavy enough to act as a deterrent when I smacked one on its muzzle. After that it was all bark and no bite.

I find that ignoring them completely usually, in fact always does the trick. 

You could try saving some food scraps, and putting them on the floor when you walk past? 

Ive never come across a street dog in this country that can't be bribed 😁

right up to the highest ranking panjandrums in the country.

I add bellowing “Mar Dee !!” At them too.

If the owner is around they seem to pick up that marr is being a pain in the <deleted>, often calling it off.

Yes, dogs in general are a problem here. There is now a pack between our village and the local bar...300 metres. First thing to do is not display signs of fear. They can sense it. Carry a stout walking cane with you. Very often you just need to raise it to get them to back off.

As a secondary tactic, get a quote for a series of rabies shots and get your girlfriend to show it to the owners and explain to them that if there is one scratch on either of you from their mutts they will be getting the bill through your lawyer. Might make them control them a bit more. Unfortunately the law is on the side of the dog, and you could be in deep doo doo if you harm them seriously.

its a psychological game, neutralize your emotions and act confident..

claim the territory and act like a leader/master.

 

Ps:

run faster than them if it doesnt work

Yes - he should pee daily in this area to mark his territory. Even at this neighbors walls and doors to show the dogs how mighty he is.
