How to Keep Your Dog From Chasing After Predators
Many pet owners struggle with keeping their farm dog from running after predators. Although outdoor or farm dogs are often used to protect property, keeping them from running off after predators can be difficult. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog from chasing after predators.
Why is my dog chasing after predators?
Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Dogs can chase after predators for a variety of reasons. Many farm and outdoor dogs are bred to be working animals that protect their herd or property. For these dogs, the need to protect can cause them to continue the chase further than the owner may like.
Ways to prevent your dog from chasing after predators.
There are several different methods to keeping your dog from running too far off your property when chasing predators to prevent them from getting lost. In some cases, using a traditional fence around your farm or large property can keep your dog from chasing predators too far off your property.
