I donno why, but, that is perfectly opposite to my experience - When I use to drive my Unicorn - they were all over me - They would hound me and run after the moving bike as if they are catching the last local in the night.

Ditto with my Swift.

Ever since I moved over to RE Electra and got the silencer changed to the original bullet one, they hardly come close.

In the night usually any unknown vehicle is chased and even known ones if not recognised are chased until it comes near and they realise it is one of the known vehicles.

But during day time it depends on how the dog is affected by the sound of the vehicle, if you see it is preparing to chase, just shout at the dog while you pass it at slow speed and it wont chase you but you should never rev and speed as that will provoke it. But if it is a group of dogs don't slow down at all just lift up your leg and speed past.

It seems this thread is whipping up considerable hysteria against dogs... :(

Couple of nights earlier, something funny happened. I went walking late in the night (around 1 am) as I had to go to the ATM. Once near the main road, I saw a pack of large dogs in a pretty aggressive mood. Two or three of them had collars on, so apparently they weren't strays. They were busy chasing all the vehicles on the road... and it was pretty amusing to see even people in cars trying to ride for their lives... lol!

Now the funny thing is when they saw me approaching, they came running with tails wagging and followed me all the way to the ATM (some 10+ mins away). I didn't even encourage them! The guard was very puzzled to see someone approach with almost a dozen strong canine escort.

They waited there patiently until I was done, then escorted me back home. I had let them come inside the compound and had to fixed the babies some late night snacks. Some of them weren't even interested in the bread and biscuits... as they seemed well fed.

The reason being that dogs are found to be brave (exceptions found with doberman & hounds) only when in gang & tend to run away when you show you can give back or you are fearless. So one day when this dog started chasing me, I hit it with my boots & trust me from that day onwards I see that dog just looking at me like its plotting its revenge (God knows when I'll get bitten), but no chases from then.

When I'm in car, I really don't care.
LMAO! Is this what we've come down to - man vs dog?
Crazy!

Default my observations

In Bangalore, we have half a dozen dogs on each street, it would be interesting if one starts observing the dogs behavior.

I have had plenty of time to kill on weekends, I will outline my observations:
1.) During the day they sleep like a bull, night time they are very active.

2.) One night I could not sleep because of the howling and barking.. At 3 AM in the morning, I chased all the dogs onto a totally different territory & all hell broke loose. I was shocked to see what happ next day, all those dogs peed and pooed near the front door of my house in the 2nd floor

3.) Another one is yezdi ride incident at 1 AM for buying cigarettes, please read my earlier post in this thread.

4.) 80% of the dogs in a group/territory are cowards, they hide below the cars & never bark in open when there is trouble.. Remaining 20% tend to get angry at my car, I have to periodically show them who is the master.

5.) Starts barking when they see ragpickers..

6.) I sometimes think what a life these dogs are living, sometimes in peak traffic in blore where there is no space to move around, people are frustrated and honking , these dogs show their public display of affection totally oblivious to the surroundings.

7.) New parked vehicle, time to pee on all the four tyres.. During rainy season, with their wet and dirty paw they climb over the cars & make it completely dirty..

8.) A dog gets pushed from one territory & it finds solace with another group in the parallel street..

9.) Pups are orphaned & left to fend for themselves, I feel sad at times but there are far too many & the govt does not take measures to control the breeding.

Default Dog menace!!!!

I stay in Jeevan Bheema Nagar. There are 11 ( thats right!!!) street dogs in my lane. They start chasing everything that moves from 7 PM in the evening to 7-8 AM in the morning. They don't spare anybody. Its becoming very dangerous these days. They are inactive from 9-1PM and come back to life after that!

Is there any way to get rid of these dogs in a humane way? I am an avid dog lover ( had 2 of them myself) but don't like street dogs, especially the ones that chase vehicles/people.
My wife walks to the bus stop in the morning and comes back walking from the bus stop in the evening and she complains everyday that 7-8 dogs keep following her everyday!

Does anybody know any NGOs or any other group which can be called up to at least administer anti rabies shots to these dogs?

Any help is really appreciated.

Contact the local chapter of PETA. They'll generally know the NGOs that relocate or help street dogs.

I found their email address on their site. Let me write them a mail and see. I had read about an NGO in outlook business magazine sometime back which was into relocating stray dogs. Just can't recall it now!

The accident is not the dog's fault alone, don't blame it on him. I do agree that you have to shoot the person incharge of neutering/spaying the dogs but you cant even think that the dog has no sense. Just to remind you, they have been on space and they still save you from bomb attacks. They are capable of many other things, its just a co-incidence that you crashed into a dog, it could also be a human trying to avoid the BMTC bus.

Hope you get well soon, and look out not only for dogs on the road but also humans who cross as if the road is their dad's property.

Amazing posts here ...

The Lord's of the street in my area are actually headed by a female dog which has some kind of an attitude issue. She doesn't like it if you stare at her. I swear ... a couple of times, I have looked at her from about 20m away as I walk past her and she has barked and mock-chased me ....

Everyday - every single day, when I ride down her street she chases my bike - and I dont buy the "Chases only quiet bikes" theory - she chased me when I was on my AVL just the same as she would chase me when I am on my KZMA...

Come to think of it the only time she hasn't chased me is when I am riding the RoadKing...maybe its the really loud sound that scares her - at least I hope so.

I am planning to hit her really hard one of these days - like with my boot or something...coz she has no fear. She chases pedestrians, cars, children,women ...all the same - no provocation reqd.

Worst part is - she has a collar though no body wants to claim her ownership for obvious reasons..

A bitch giving you so much of a bother?! I'm surprised... I thought all the agressive stunts by pooches are almost always the prerogative of the males...

How do the dogs know your house? LOL! Regarding the group, even I haven't understood them properly. They are barking here all the time and I really can't see where this group is exactly hiding!! I feel the same regarding pups, but whenever I imagine what kind of ruffians they become I feel like

The dog sure is a bitch I guess both of you can try contacting your ward's BBMP's office. Did that twice, but those clever canines disappear when the van comes in :( However the dog catchers did manage to neuter few of the ones that captured around 3 years back and it has worked. However I'm against this slow and ineffective method of controlling dog population. People might think that I don't have a heart, but do I need to refresh the memories of children getting killed by strays in the past 2 years in Bangalore? Chandralayout has become famous for this. I wonder how it is near smartcat's home.

The leader of a pack can either be an "alpha male" or "alpha female". It will usually be the most aggressive. As I mentioned a couple of pages back, it is unwise to make eye contact with a strange / aggressive dog.
