Comparing the chicken killing to human to human homicide is ignorant. Just as we don't punish animals in the same way as humans, we also do not train them the same way! Shock collers are by no means inhumane! You clearly have never owned a hardheaded animal that you love! If you did you would want to fix it's behavioral problems. Some dogs only need positive reinforcment whereas others need a firm pack leader and negative reinforcement. A shock collar works wonders because they don't associate it with human beating, which does lead to fear biting and peeing on your feet when petting.
For three months the neighbors chicken and my dog have lived in harmony but my 7 month old German Shepherd now has a taste for chicken and will not under any cercumstances listen to me. He used to stay in the yard. Now he jumps a 5 foot fence to get to these chickens if I turn my back for 5 minutes. He came home today with blood on his face. The neighbors saw him do it. They were nice enough to come discuss this with us and not physically harm my dog. I am not sure my husband would be as nice if the tables were turned! We have decided that if he is not in his 8 foot tall 10 by 10 kennel he will have to be chained up or in the house! This pains me to do but it is just not fair for my neighbors to have to deal with him going on to there pproperty and killing there pets! I would be violently angry if they had a vicious big dog that come on my property and killed mine.
It seems to me that people like Hyrex and all the other irrational people posting to this thread they are naive. I can guarantee it would only take one time for something to physically harm one of their animals to realize that sometimes you have to control your animal and the animals of others by whatever means necesary! We live in a wonderful country that allows me to have any animal I want on my 60 acre lot. This country also allows me to protect my property, pets and family! Stop condescending those who are only looking for solutions to a clear problem!
