Dogs

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Dogs

Post by explorer » Wed Nov 13, 2019 5:38 pm

Here is a video of dogs being aggressive towards a cyclist in Greece.

The same thing can happen in Cambodia. I have not seen that many dogs in one place, but it is not uncommon for there to be 5 or 6 or more. You can meet aggressive dogs almost anywhere, but they can be worse in farming areas, where there are few other houses around.

I have not been bitten, but I know of one foreigner and many Cambodians who have.

If going to those areas, either cycling or walking, you need to know what to do if you come across aggressive dogs. Like:

Keep your eyes on them, they like to get people from behind, but not all dog bites are from behind. Dogs sometimes bite prey or humans who are running away.

Carry a stick or piece of bamboo, and swing it at them. If they get too close, hit them.

Pick up stones, and throw it at them. If there are no stones, act like you are picking up stones.

While cycling, I have occasionally kicked dogs in the head, that may have otherwise bitten me.

Stay away from dog fights.

If the Cambodian owners see dogs being aggressive, most of them will call the dog away, but you could be bitten before the owners have a chance.

Don't run over the dog.

Something light hearted.

We experimented in thailnad with electronid deterrents. You can find them as apps for your phone. One we tried fro mosquioes cut a path through a bunch of them on a puddle. the dog one was more impressive. we chased an anoying cur up the road with it, he would not come closer that 5 metres and he wasnt happy. You can order battery and mains powered ones from china. I think they are illegal in europe now
personally i would train my doigs to attack cyclists. slow moving mbile road blocks and any fat person who wear lycra should be jailed for fashion offences

I am probably faster on my bike than most other road users.......

Anyway, I have run, cycled, hashed in SE Asia for 24 years and have never had a run-in with dogs. The local breeds are all bark, no bite. It is the foreign breeds that worry me.

Mans best friend,,, until you kick them in the head when all they wanted to do was lick your feet.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
