    It sounds like the dog had never been around farm animals,some proper training and it should be ok

    I think it was a kennel dog. I know she had been beaten. Her ears were scabbed over from fly bites, but now have fur growing on them. She is sharp as a tack, and learns fast. She knows the property lines and keeps other dogs out.

    Yep I read the thread, and I am talking from german shepherd versus livestock experience. I will shoot any one that gets close to my livestock. Perod, end of statement.

    Rabbit necklace is fine HOWEVER I'm not sure "tied up" is part of the answer - especially if its 24/7. If you're going to tie up a dog 24/7 just get rid of it.

    go for an affordable e collar. the new tech is awesome 100 levels of stim tone and and vibration leaves the new gear nothing like a taser. It is easy to use and at lower stim levels in no way going to make a dog fearful like the old one level collars. Most smart dogs learn really fast too

    Just tied up until her punishment is over and I take the rabbit off.

    Today, while I was at work, she ate the body of the rabbit. The head and one lucky rabbits foot are still attached to the collar. It was just a little bunny, two months old, and it was tied tight.

    Sounds like an inhumane, to the dog, way to scent a beagle.

    Dunno how the bunny met it's demise.

    I have. I will admit to even trying it once, in my younger and stupider days. Let's just say it didn't work and that I still had to deal with my own dog when it was said and done.

    We don't talk about what happened to that awful dog. The problem was dealt with.

    You receive exactly what you will put up with in a dog.
