One of my friends who used to work for CUPA said she'll send me some info of a vet who's dealt with such instances. Hoping to hear from her soon, so something can be done to end this nuisance.

My folks are here with me now,and they'r getting all the rest they need.But once they get back to B'lore,it gets really tough on them dealing with daily activities and then the lack of sleep due to these dogs.
I'm not sure what they do when it rains. I believe there's some sort of shelter for them.

I'm really looking forward to my trip this summer, so I can give that moron a piece of my mind.He's been nothing but a pain in the *** since the day we moved to the location.

I understand that at times we all find it bit too much when we have to shell out $ because of these "stupid" dogs and cats, but where else would they go? How often have we seen logs limping on 3 legs and eke-ing out a living? The bottom-line is, dogs will be dogs - they will never wise-up to the concept of crossing the road safely. So it is up to us to be careful, if you still hit an animal - well, that is fate.

Have seen monkeys dead on the road umpteen times, even spotted a chital half dead during my last drive through Nagarahole & Wayanad. Who is to blame here? Us - naturally!

I bumped into this thread by chance. Though the matter is 2+ years old, I couldn't help feeling amused at the predicament of your folks. Staying in USA you are complaining is all the more funny.

I have heard that you get battery operated ultrasonic sound emitter to drived away pests like roaches, rodents, birds etc., that are used by farmers there to shoo away animals who damage crops.

Some of these emitters come with hertz adjusting facility. Get one and give to you folks. Set the hertz to a level that is extremely uncomfortable to dogs and place it in your house pointing towards the plot. The bark will turn to a whine ad then silence.

The menace in this case,is more to do with dogs barking their heads off!

My folks live in Indiranagar ( B'lore). We have a moron (best way to describe the guy,IMO). He has two 60 x 40 plots, of which the one closer to our house is being used as a garden. They have two dogs, and these two are kept tied up to the wall right next to our house. Day & night, these dogs keep barking and the owners do nothing to calm them down. My folks have a tough time sleeping, thanks to the commotion!

My dad has tried talking to the moron numerous times, but in vain.

Is there any way this can be handled? We are animal lovers, so there's no way we'd want to harm the dogs.(I'd much rather put the moron in a pound!).

Please help!

A stray dog has adopted my porch.

What is the best way to get rid of this dog?

He is shedding a lot of hair and as the wind blows, the hair gets into my house.
He chews up the newspaper.

The dog looks old and very mangy.

Do you know where I can get one of these in Bangalore? I have a major problem with pigeons on my balcony. I have seen ultrasonic mosquito repellers in my neighbourhood supermarket, but I doubt these are powerful enough to deter dogs and birds.

Option 1 : (Dog friendly option - recommended) Mostly he's taken up the place because of the rain. Possible for you to take up some effort and put some old jute sacks or clothes at another dry spot away from your porch? You could lead him away with some food. Stack something else at the place at your porch so that he doesn't take it up again. Generally works.

Option 2 : (Not recommended) Shoo him away. Use any means - shouting or a stick. Probably your servant would be able to do it faster. Haven't done this, so it is a trial and error method.

Find the local CUPA number and call them to take it away.

Keep your porch wet for a few days to let the dog know that it is not welcome there. The dog will find another dry and cosy place to rest.

I have a different issue with dogs. my 2 cars are parked in front of my house - on the road side (yes, road side). Somehow, one/few dogs that come strolling along with owners find the place convenient to poo. And I get to the car and the sight I see make me really annoyed. What can be done? Till date i haven't spotted one doing so (not caught red handed). But its a daily mess i have to deal with.

For those who are suffering from dog menace try this option. May sound bit funny, however it works. Keep a glass bottle filled with water near the area dog frequents, It should scare it away. I know it sounds funny, I too felt the same the first time I heard it. Went ahead and gave it a try nonetheless and it was working.

Only later someone told that the logic being in night when dog sees the glass it gives a highly refracted and amplified image to its eyes of what all things/ light. I am not sure if it's true, however this was the way we got rid of the dog that used to and use our lawn as restroom.
