Please refrain from this discussion if all you have to say is "don't hit the poor dog". I am sure that these people did not get any pleasure from punishing their dogs. I sure didn't. They just didn't know what else to do, that is why we are here, to find a better way. I have 2 pups. They are both 5 mo. old and are very loving and friendly. I also have chickens. About a month ago my pups started going after the birds. First one they caught they just chewed feathers off. After they did this I placed them inside the coop with all the chickens and every time they started towards one I would reprimand them with a loud "no!" and a gentle tap. After a few sessions they seemed better. It was after this that i noticed they went after the birds only when I wasn't with them. I tried monitering them and yelling at them every time they did it but to no avail. If i was watching, they behaved. When I was not, they chased. Then a week later I found half a chicken on the back doorstep and another chick still alive but ripped up so bad I had to kill it myself. After that I spanked them like a child on the but and showed them the dead birds. This morning they ran outside and had killed a rooster before I could even get dressed. I beat them with the birds and my hands. I didn't injure them, i was hitting them open handed, but it was still enough that I felt physically ill afterwards. I hated doing it but the chickens are our pets too (we don't raise for meat)and it kills me to see them die. I love my dogs but I will have to get rid of them if I can not fix this problem. If I come up with an answer that works for me I will post it but so far nothing is working. If anyone has a relevent response please let me know, but if you are just posting because you are an animal lover and you want to tell me I am a monster for hitting my dogs please understand that I am an animal lover too. If I did not love my dogs I would not be here trying to find a better way.
