Well these dogs have a certain behavioral pattern. These dogs have a time when they bite, a time when they want to go near or receive pat from someone. These stray dogs are not a nuisance. The times they bite are similar to the times humans get angry with each other. Humans also select people who they want to be around with. The same is with dogs. One of the reasons they bite is because they do not like you around. So there is no difference between humans and dogs except that they have four legs and have a different language to communicate with each other. But the best part is that dogs understand the human language spoke by humans is somewhat understood by the dogs. Dogs also use a language that humans SHOULD understand. Here are some behavioral patterns of stray dogs and HOW YOU SHOULD REACT THEM TO SAVE YOUR SOUL.

Answer to WHY dogs bite-

  • When someone unknown approaches too quickly. Even if you scare it with a sudden loud sound, the dog’s going to be on you.
  • The dog runs behind anything that is moving too fast. It can be a 2 wheeler, a person running or a bicycle
  • Another main time when it bites is when you enter its territory. It is called territorial aggression
  • Punishment enlisted aggression. If you kick the dog, the dog bites you. A simple rule

Messages it tries to convey using tails and body parts-

  • When it is happy- It wags its tail hard
  • When its tail is sticking straight up- It is suspicious, watchful and angry.
  • When its tail is sticking straight behind it- It is really angry. At this time you should no even go near it.
  • When its tail is between its hind legs- It is afraid
  • When it is growling under it’s breath it is angry and does not want you around. If at this time you do not pay heed to the warning, you will get into deep trouble.
  • When it barks at you, VERY ANGRY or it is NOT angry. It is telling you that you have entered its territory and it does not want you there. But even though it is not angry, it may bite if you do not get out.

So when you are getting a warning by the animal BETTER take it SERIOUSLY. Or you are going to end up in the hospital.

Research on "Run behind when you are on a 2 wheeler"
you would have noticed that Pariahs (stray) do NOT run after EACH vehicle..its normally either 2 or 4 wheelers. Studies done in East Asia connects this issue with that a dog of that pack was either hit by a 2 or 4 wheeler and they see the vehicle as a threat and try to chase it away.

Dude, that shows some REAL research done.
I think your Research part was the one really devoted.
Good job man.

So, have you experimented these strategies? (Make sure you have the address of the nearest hospital!) ;)

Otherwise, really nice work done.

Great job. Just got me thinking.... Our first reaction to stray dogs is to get them caught and get it over with...easy way out... but to understand them and live happily with them is just way out great thinking... Keep it up..

Good job done..... Next time I see a stray dog instead of being frightened and cursing it I will try to understand the body language. I am sure its going to help me as well as others in dealing in a positive manner with stray dogs. Excellent fantabulous job done!!!

It is not necessary that only pedigreed dogs are well mannered; even stray dogs can be self trained for toilet manners and cleanliness.. Most of the Pariah/Strays you see will be sitting on clean surface mostly. Do you know that Stray dogs guard sandalwood? the forest department is going ahead with the exercise in a large sandalwood grove in Dharwad district. Local strays will be employed. The purebred dogs failed in this and now Strays are being used. Imagine the scope, they can be used in positive ways.
