Let me tell you about the story of 5 "vicious" dogs. Notorious of having bitten at least 2 strangers, they scare everyone. The problem is, the bathroom is separated from the house and can only be accessed through the yard where these guard dogs roam.
There is one technique to chase them away though. Just shout "Tubig init!". When they were young, their owner used to splash them with hot water whenever they get too unruly, with an accompanying scream "Tubig init!" (Hot water!). Strange, funny but true. Pavlovian techniques work!
