What works for you? I was reading a thread on here earlier today...Someone's LGD did something that they shouldn't have...Big debate broke out...threads were locked (surprise surprise)...Pandemonium was the recipe of the day... Anyway, I saw several people saying, "train the dog!!", but not much info actually offered on methods of training... And so I'm thinking...it's not everyone who needs to know how to break a dog from killing chickens/livestock/etc...We probably have a good knowledge base on here for breaking pesky pets of such behavior...but it often seems to be lost in translation... Now beating a dog with a chicken it's just killed and then tying it around the dog's neck never made sense to me...First of all the dog don't care what you're beating it with...only that it's getting beaten...if it can even associate the punishment with the crime...and then tying the dead bird around the dogs neck...well dogs roll in dead/disgusting things all the time...so I'm not really thinking the "gross factor" is a deterrent here...But I'm more than willing to concede that I don't know it all... So you know how to stop them from killing birds? Eating livestock? Jumping fences? Any or all of the above? Share what you know...or at least what has worked for you.
