Ok, all nice here, but who walks in rural village at night times? Drunk or not, car or motorbike it is, even if I am not the drunk driver thumbsup.gif

Must be even scarier walking through your village, then.

Basically a class thing. wai.gif

No, a good dog, and I mean a dog that inherited a good temperament won't attack a human. It sees the human as its leader and it is a pack animal by nature.

In the West dogs are often bred for temperament and bad ones are culled by at least sterilizing. Most breeders are responsible. In Thailand you get what you get and the worst become the dominate pack leaders.

I killed a rottweiler a few years back that I was certain was readying a viscous attack. I was running my Bobcat excavator at the time and I simply shot him, dug his grave, pushed him in with the bucket and covered him up. Although what I did was legal I didn't want neighbors who owned him upset with me.

I don't know what to tell you, as in a civilized country such dogs are impounded and if not claimed and after paying a stiff fine by the owner, they are put down.

It has nothing to do with "good" dog or "bad" dog, it's how the dog was brought up. Generally, the dog sees his owner as the pack leader, not any human as the pack leader. And if the owner did his job correctly, the dog will see the rest of the family members as higher above it in the pack and will not harm them. However, a stranger passing near the dog's territory will be seen by the dog as an intruder that has to be guarded against.

This just isn't true. I grew up on a wheat and cattle ranch in the W. USA and we had a bunch of cattle dogs at all times. They were valuable and bred, bought, and traded for inheriting a submissive temperament. You can test a very young pup for temperament just as you can an adult dog if you're buying it for any purpose not limited to breeding.

One good test is the Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Testing found HERE

Scroll about half way down the page to see the test and then continue on how to read the results. You can tell if the temperament is friendly, aggressive vs submissive and so on. The dog must be born knowing to be submissive to a human.

Responsible dog breeders do such a test and do.not.breed an aggressive dog. Irresponsible breeders may include some who breed rotties and pit bulls for aggressiveness and this is why those breeds too often get a bad name.

If you are getting a dog for a pet it is very wise to know how to test it for temperament so that it will be safe around all people including children.

Cheers.

Dog temperament is a combination of breeding and training.

Certain breeds carry tendencies for aggression, to be sure.

Any dog, any breed, can be made aggressive by abuse.

You are mistaken. Temperament is what a dog is born with. If that wasn't true you couldn't temperament test a puppy taken straight from its mother. This is its basic nature. You can't make "any" dog aggressive by abuse. A dog with a very submissive temperament may well become withdrawn and afraid and go into avoidance mode. It may simply cower down if it can't run away.

You can't make a submissive dog aggressive but you might abuse it to where it might bite out of fear in what it believes is self defense. Fear/self defense and aggression are two different things. An aggressive dog may single out a stranger and pursue and bite for no apparent reason. A submissive dog would have to be cornered to where it can't run and at the same time be very afraid of what was being done to it if it was to bite at all.

Dog breeders and trainers know that temperament can be bred into a dog by choosing parents carefully, and responsible ones do just that.

A dog that's born with an aggressive temperament may seem fine if not tested, but may some day just up and bite someone badly and "surprise" everyone.

Cheers.

the most intelligent defence against thai dogs treats is to throw water at them..i wonder i didn't see this answer through the experienced farangs posts here... whistling.gif

my , and best advice then is always carrying a bottle of water ! much more efficiency and conveniant to carry than a stick wink.png

i ignore the gun , meat or viet-nam friends methods.... supposed it was humour .

must add that water doesn't work against tigers wink.png

actually this brought back memories... a big dog used to patrol his street along the road I lived.. it was his job..

Thus after work I bought food for the dog..and we formed an alliance as friends.. it was funny... I would see this dog waiting for me... .. we go through the routine.. I drop the food by his feet.. he gobbles it down.. and he would escort me to my house.. this went on for about 6 months..until he was....thumbsup.gif
