I think thats just an instinct.
Yup. Since moving onto our little dead end street in the country, my dogs have made a huge dent on the squirrel population around here. And they love it when the field mice are pushed into our back yard (despite the compound type fencing I've got....& I do NOT love it) from rains as they have field die chasing them down.Kasco said:Some dogs have very high prey drive and will chase and kill small animals. It's the risk you take when owning dogs.
Carla has brought a quick end to a couple of frogs too. And we definatly don't spend enough time looking at the birds at PetCo!serverextreme said:Hello I don't think they really mean to kill these small animals it's just they don't know how strong there are.
I also a red nose pitt every time he see's frogs he jumps on them to to kill they but thats his way of playing.
If your dogs start killing larger animals I would start to question why.
