Do your homework before travelling to a country
Before travelling to any country, you should thoroughly research about the customs and traditions of that area. It will help you understand the kind of food they prefer. This will help you a great deal in deciding what to eat and what to avoid. You may even ask specific questions from your host.
Take the client out yourself
If you are going abroad for a business deal, you have to be extra careful because there is a lot at stake. The best option for you would be to take your client to a lunch or a dinner yourself, if you can afford it. However, before doing that, you should research different restaurants in the area. Go through the menu of the restaurants beforehand.
Pretend to be a vegetarian
It may be a little rude of you to tell your host that you do not want to eat dogs, especially if you are invited at home. It is recommended that you pretend to be a vegetarian and let the host know at the time of invitation.
Do not look sick while seeing others eat dog
If people are eating dog in front of you, you will definitely feel sick. However, you should have enough self-control and pretend to be completely comfortable. If you are not able to divert your attention, you may end up vomiting, which will be quite an embarrassing situation, not just for you but for the host as well.
Be polite in saying ‘no’
If the host comes up to you and offers you dog meat, then you are not left with any other option but to politely excuse yourself. Make sure that you have a smile on your face in this scenario.
