    Dastard Bogs and Chucking Fickens

    I have a problem with my pets too.

    I have three dogs; one eats people, one eats chickens and the other tries to eat both. Lovely pets you have, Mr Somtam, I hear you jest.
    The people eater is only a people eater at my discretion so we're ok on that count, plus that fat lump is unable to scale the wall I had built, unlike the bastard chicken eater, and he really is a bastard, mo fo's taking years off my life with his poxy poulet munching.
    I've tried everything to make this arse of a dog stop chasing and killing the next door neighbours (at least 100) chickens; tied him up - he really didn't like that, cries all day long driving me nuts; put a muzzle on him - didn't work, the cheeky fecker still manages to kill and eat them some how.
    The problem is the neighbour isn't shy with his shot gun, thank god he's a shit shot or the dog would be dead 10 times over and of course I songsan the chickens mak mak.

    I've even tried beating the fucker infront of a chook he'd just maimed, but its not going in his thick fucking skull.

    Any ideas? He's got the thrill of the chase in his blood now, gonna be a tough nut to crack.

    No, although I've fantasised about squashing the feckers head whilst he sprints at greyhound pace towards the nearest flock/gaggle/bunch/herd/whatever their fucking called, of chickens, I have no desire for the fella to be eaten by a family of Vietnamese peasants. I just want him to STOP eating them.

    I just had to move one of my dogs up onto a vacant block of land because she had a snap at the kids yesterday. I don't know what it is but she's got a mean streak and when they have that there is no getting rid of it.

    I've tried to discipline her for about 2 years and even after all the effort and time spent and I still don't trust her.

    The chicken thief has it in her blood mate and you will never beat it out of her.

    Interesting to note: most local country dogs couldn't be bothered to pursue chooks...just the way it developed. As a rule, cats and dogs have an understanding. But then there are the few exceptions {your mutt}. In time, they will be taken care of by the community.

    LT, the neighbour with the gun actually caught one of my dogs who was also a relentless chicken eater with a bullet in the back, the dog survived and never went on to eat/chase any more chickens, quite the opposite actually, would pretty much run in the other direction as soon as he saw one. I don't want to inflict pain on this dog(beating him was painful), he's very loving to us but is causing the neighbour who has a stupid amount of chickens alot of grief. The poor dog, Buster, who took the bullet, didn't survive a car at 80kh odd though. Poor bugger.

    Or myself. The Wat beckons. Whats better, have a dog run around free in a temple with very little food or love; or being tide up for the majority of the day with more food he can shake a stick at and alot of affection from us - really don't know the answer to that.

    Try downloading one of the Cesar Millan dvd's. I have the odd problem with my dogs and some of his techniques are really useful. Its more of an owner training video than a dog training video.

    Ceaser is the man, no doubt about that. Anyone who can walk a pack of 6 pitbulls and clearly remain the leader of the pack, knows his mutts. Haven't watched him sinec I've ben UBCless, but will down load some recent series for a refresher. I trained my pitbull through watching him, she's extremely obedient.

    Pretty much done that dave. Tied him him up with a very short leash and left a dead chicken next to him for over 24 hours. Hasn't made a difference.

    Tough one. I had a stray from a very young age. He had a wild streak in him and used to chase the landlord's chucks. The wife comes over one day and says the brat killed her hubby's prize fighting cock -- Bt10,000. WTF? If the bird is worth that much, why let it out of its basket/pen? OK, OK. They were real jerks, so I said, "My dog is worth Bt20,000, so I'll give you my dog and you give me Bt10,000." End of story but I did move shortly thereafter. My new landlady, gods rest her soul, had a chicken coop not far from my house. I caught the dog chasing a few times, grabbed him and the freaked chicken and said "NO!" to him while shaking the chuck in his face. It seemed to occur when he was bored. Fortunately, this landlady loved me and was not upset. When my bad dog finally killed one, I took it to her, she handed it back and said, "Kin khao."
    The dog finally grew out of it -- think it was after I got the cat or when the other neighbour chicken herders got a goose and a gander -- excellent guard animals and the dog will soon learn to fek off. Buy the neighbours a pair of geese.

    Growing up on a farm here is my experience. Once a dog starts chasing and killing chickens it will never stop. Never could break the habit.

    Unluckily, I had to shoot a few of my dogs (my father made me do the deed) because they kept killing our laying hens.

    Maybe you're looking at it the wrong way. How about helping the guy build an enclosure so his chickens don't run free and are safe? Bet yours isn't the only chicken killer and he'll also lose a few to theft, road accidents and cats. He might just be up for it.

    ^ Thing is, he has about 10 rai around the house and the chickens go everywhere. Little families of chickens all over the place. I've decided i'm gonna have to spend another 10k or somet on the wall to stop him getting out(if that doesn't work, I'll templeise the arse), then he's got a nice quarter of a rai to run around in, and if the chicks decide they wanna go in there, as they often do, it their tough shit I'm afraid.

    ^ I think the geese just maybe a gourmet feast, he's quite a big strong mutt and the area is too big for a goose to protect the whole collective term of chickens. How much would a goose set me back out of interest, anyone?

    Dunno the cost, but my Thai neighbours had a pair so couldn't be that much. Fek, they were scared of NOTHING. The gander would chase me at times and try to beak my legs -- caught me once and it really fekin hurt; the dogs would just take off. Really good guard animals. And never bothered the chickens as I know.

    Collingwood Children's Farm - Our Animals

    or here:

    blahblahblah...It was suggested to get geese as guard dogs (for the chickens) ....We were told to get them as goslings because they grow to be attached to you and are less likely to be aggressive with you when you do so.


    Wow! Do these creatures make good sound alarms if they sense trouble and they really do protect the chickens from the stray cats! (And I can add dogs) Not only are they protectors, but (so long as you don't tease them!) they are really affectionate creatures! (Bladdy California libby)

    PS, you gotta get a goose and a gander. They always go in pairs. And hilarious when they mate. (His wonkie looks like a squirming worm)

    It's just a fvcking dog, my friend. No need to spend thousands of baht to insure some sort of security. As Ned above has stated - it's in his nature now. Just get rid of the mutt. Problem solved.

    Up country a dog killing chickens is a gold mine for everyone around who when they kill a chicken for food will bring it to you and say ypur dog killed give me 100 baht. If the dog is not good for anything like guarding get rid of it as will cost you dearly

    Call me a softy, but I'd rather spend a few quid keeping the fucker in rather than letting another stray onto the streets. Never done it, probly never will. For sure he causes me alsorts of unnecessary anxiety and maybe one day I'll beat him to death(if the new wall doesn't work out) but I just can't do the dumping bit.
