    Killing a Dog

    I certainly don't like doing this but it has become the necessary thing to do.

    Our neighbour(single woman) has a dog and she doesn't look after it, leaving it at home(outside) most weekends while she's out partying.
    For about 6 months now it has been disturbing about 6 households, making loud whining noises. We've had meeting with the woman who basically has told us all to fk off.
    I have had many nights with just 3/4 hours sleep and it is affecting my livelihood.
    Also, I have online meeting that are disturbed by the daytime noise. My wife sleeps with earplugs as do some other neighbours. I suggested killing the dog, or the woman at a 'community' meeting but don't want to risk the consequences of the latter. Half the neighbours agreed with the killing of the dog and two closer neighbours said they would do it. 2 months on, nobody has done anything so I'm going to do it. The fact that it's a pit-bull makes my conscious a bit clearer, as they should be banned anyway as they are a danger to life.

    Anyway, the point of this thread is to ask the most humane way of killing a dog.
    I can't give it an injection but will throw some food with some poison into the garden, unless you have any other ideas.

    We tried to get someone to kidnap it and drop it many miles away but couldn't find anyone that wasn't scared of it.

    Can't you get the police involved and get them to deal with it?

    Just throttle it or take it for a drive a few 100 km away and kick it out your car /truck.

    Mate, don't kill it... not its fault it's being mistreated/neglected.

    Why not adopt it? if your instincts tell you it's a danger to your family, then how about helping to find a suitable new owner for it mate?
    a hunter or some such.?

    You will get heaps of good karma points... do good, receive good, do bad, receive bad... 'tum dee, dai dee, tum sure, dai sure'... *forgive my karaoke spelling...

    One of the first things I will do in Japan (once we are settled) is buy a dog (not a pit though... maybe a boxer or pug).

    please don't kill the dog bro. (kill the owner, by all means 55.. but not the dog).

    Given the history of complaints and the usual Thai penchant for moral cowardice when the fickle finger of fate comes a-pointing, you can bet your bottom dollar if the mutt croaks it in adverse circumstances then you will most certainly be the one who will get fingered.

    Personally, I would not touch the dog, it ain't its fault it is neglected and if 'offed' the bitch next door will probably just get another one.

    No, the clear course of action to be taken is to leave matters as they are , canine-wise, but under cover of darkness when the bitch is away get a pig's head and nail it to her gate upside down with a message written in blood rehearsing an incantation that will make her sick.

    Alternatively, when she is out and about at night getting pissed just follow her and in a vulnerable moment attack her from behind and beat her to a pulp but make sure you leave no DNA.

    I throttled a rottweiler once no problem.

    I agree, it's not the dog's fault.

    I am losing money because of this, my productivity has decreased considerably.

    I have one friend high up in the police, maybe I could ask him(well probably his servant) to sort it/her out.

    You already fucked up by discussing your desire to kill it with your neighbors. Now, if you (or someone else) kills it, you'll get the blame.

    If you're considering a crime, better not to discuss it on line.

    ^ Best idea.

    Noisy dogs are part and parcel of living in Thailand.

    If you could be criminally charged, I'd avoid killing it.

    We had a set to with one of our neighbours about dogs recently. The puu yai ban got involved (at the neighbour's insistence) and he ended up telling her that she had to sort her dogs out but afterwards we also offered to pay to have them castrated, which makes them much easier to live with (I ended up feeling sorry for the woman who has all the dogs - clearly her family think she's a twat and she was very, very undereducated and I got a strong impression that her dogs were compensation for a fairly shitty home life)...so one possibility is offering to buy the dog from her. I realise that it may be a bit galling to think that she'll make money from being a pain in the arse but it can be a quick and painless way of resolving this kind of situation.

    There are also laws on this which are in your favour, though getting them enforced and acted on may be a very long slog, but at the same time, it would be a crime to poison the dog. And it's also a horrible thing to do.

    Yeah I had that problem when a few brought me off my bicycle. But in saying that since then I've learned that owner is legally responsible to keep their dog under control. You have to fill out a formal complaint at the cop shop so they then have to act upon it.
    I'll try and look out the site where it stated that.

    Edit: Can't fooking find it now.

    Misread your statement about on-line discussions in the op. However, the point stands. You've publicly made know your desire to kill the dog.

    I seem to remember you read Thai. If so, have you looked on Pantip? There are shitloads of threads on noisy dogs, which may give you some suggestions..

    Fight fire with fire...When she's relaxing or sleeping, get some recorded dog barks and whines blaring through her house...Alert the others, and don't let up...

    She should cave soon...

    And Seeking has worked himself into a frenzy, once more:

    I have read that a spoonfull of MSG mixed into a handful of minced pork works.
    My guess is it dehydrates the poor mutt, so not a nice way to go, but apparently it's effective.

    Have you tried feeding it on the week-ends? Or ever? Maybe it is just hungry and lonely?

    If it was a soi dog the local authority actually have dogs squads. Well some do!

    We tried to get someone to kidnap it and drop it many miles away but couldn't find anyone that wasn't scared of it.
    I did this (not personally). There was a soi dog that would keep attacking guests from my Phuket hotel as they walked along the public road.

    It didn't help that most guests were Chinese and would scream like 5-year old girls at the site of a Chihuahua and run like fcuk, which of course, encouraged the dog to chase them.

    Since the dog wasn't a Chihuahua but a breed commonly known as a 'big fcuking dog', the guests usually ended up in the local hospital with multiple dog bites and expensive rabies injections.

    These incidents were not very good for my Tripadvisor reviews...

    So I paid some local Burmese labourers to catch the dog, transport it some distance away, and release it.

    That worked OK, until the dog returned some days later. The lazy Burmese had only dropped it 1Km away!

    So I paid them more money to grab the dog and drop it somewhere near NongKhai...

    The 2 guys who did the job were gone for days, so they either took my directions at face value or killed the vicious bugger of a dog and eat it for supper.

    In any case, I wasn't publically known as the guy who killed soi dogs, (although no doubt everyone did know and were relieved).

    It does seem strange that a few years ago there were Dog-catchers everywhere and you could swap your dog for a plastic bucket ....Now it you are attacted by a stray dog and harm/kill it you can be charge with with animal cruelty and face a two-year jail term and a maximum fine of THB40,000.
    Surely if the dog is being mistreated the Police could charge the owner with animal cruelty but if its just a noisy dog you will have to learn to live with it .
    Our next door neighbour ( the Wifes Aunt and Uncle ) has a dog that barks at every single person that goes past their house,it doesn't attack anyone but just barks .....unfortunately our Dog is the opposite .
    Outside the house he's friendly to all the locals when He's out with Me,the Wife or our Daughter and the local kids thinks he's great as he loves to play fetch which is something most Thai dogs don't do . But if anyone tries to come into our Gated House or even if we have friends over he growls,barks and has even bitten one of the wifes friends. I've tried all the teaching techniques there are but nothing seems to work. He has to be put on a lead if anyone comes to the house.....it maybe a job for Cesar Millan to sort out for me
    The point I'm trying to make is it may not be the owners fault and it may just mean the dog has issues, it would be great if every single dog was obedient and never did anything wrong. I'm sorry to say that if the Police wont do anything and the neighbour is not mistreating the Dog then you will just have to learn to live with it.

    Dogs like the taste of Anti-freeze. Unfortunately it's toxic.

    Or treat him to death ...it could cost you a few baht in Mars Bars though

    Approximately one pound of milk chocolate is poisonous to a 20-pound dog; one-half pound for a 10-pound dog. The average chocolate bar contains 2 to 3 ounces of milk chocolate. It would take 2-3 candy bars to poison a 10 pound dog. Semi-sweet chocolate has a similar toxic level.
