Bloody Sheep!!!


Recommended Posts

right, my dogs 18 month old today and whilst on a walk earlier, the little tw@t thought he'd celebrate with a bit of lamb. It's the second time he's done it now and I wouldn't mind but he's seen them all through growing up as a pup and I've tried to enforce that they're a no go as much as possible. And after the first time he did it, he got a good bollocking shall we say.

 

I'm starting to think that a remote shock collar is the only way to go now as he just will not listen whilst in chase.

 

Is he still young enough for a collar (or any other suggestions) to put it right or am I now pissing in the wind?

 

I got this dog from a pup because I had to get rid of the one I had before for doing exactly the same thing. Same breed funnily enough!

Buy an e collar, set it to maximum, buckle it round your neck and every time the dog chases a sheep, press the remote.It won't do a thing for the dog , but it will remind you to stock break an animal before you let it loose in the countryside.The farmer on my nearest permission shot two Alsatians a few months ago they had killed 2 sheep and two more had to be put down.It upset him ,he said he would sooner have shot the owner of the dogs.

 

 

Practically speaking an e collar will give you the recall you need.

I've a saluki saturated dog that went a bit deaf when you called him.The collar sorted it. If he regresses and doesn't comeback immediately to my whistle I back it up with the sound bleeper on the remote . I just give him the ringing tone no need for the shock anymore.

I should add that he is a very wilful, bold dog with a huge prey drive

. If your dog is a timid sort , I would be more circumspect about using a collar.

Still, if its that or the gun what have you got to lose?

Dress up as a sheep kick fcuk out of the dog, problem solved

bit harsh, guys only failed at training a few dogs and your wanna cull him

Shoot the fecking thing and don't have another dog. Two dogs gone exactly the same way. I would seriously consider if you are competent enough to train a dog.   TC

I know the farmer who owns the sheep on the hill by me and he knows full well my dogs are spot on as iv proved to him time and time again ! My pup at the moment isn't perfect but she isn't attacking them just herding them ! I think you got to act normal around sheep while stock breaking as you want your dog to act normal you start stressing and the dog will sense this and start acting to accordance !!

I think thats the thing with most situations with dogs like if you know your dog fights with other dogs and you see one coming and your heart starts pumping and start to stress the dog will pick up on it and take the dominant role and act how it thinks it needs to. I had the same problem with my mums bullmastiff it would kick off as soon as it saw a dog or sheep because she would get in such a panic but if i took the dog and kept calm and quietly corrected the dog before it acted it was fine.

Yeeep just all about keeping calm and keeping a eye on the dogs body language ! Soon as the pup could smell she I could see her body language change completely she was getting stress and wanted to approach them but didn't to me she wasn't broke to sheep I knew if she thought I couldn't see her she would have a pop ! My old two can be a mile or two away and I know they wouldn't bother them at all that's broken to sheep

No excuses really a dog like that is no good to any one n can be the cause of many good well behaved dogs gettin shot n the lurcher and owner given more of a bad name, jobs hard enough as it is, best off in a pet home n if that can't be found then shouldn't go hunting n atleast kept on a lead if anywhere near sheep..

if a dog was a stock killer but was a great hare killer would you put to sleep or just run him on land where theres no sheep,

Trouble in waiting,a chase that starts away from stock as an habit of ending on land you have little contol over,pts,better for the dog that will possibly spend its lifetime passed from pillar to nugget.

False economy,sooner or later the dog will again encounter sheep,it will be passed from pillar to nugget and possibly suffer because of its early lack of stewardship,better to cull such a dog,kinder on the dog.

Lock the dog in the kennel for a fortnight so hes absolutely bouncing then wait till its windy as hell take him too a field of sheep that are going to run but can't go far so you can catch the dog before he can do too much damage . when he chases the sheep get after catch him put him on the lead but have a length of blue 25mm alcathine pipe with you hidden about 3 foot long and hit fuc out of him at the same time shouting his name in an aggressive manner. if you done that the first time you wouldn't be writing on here about it and also its got to be blue alcathine the yellow stuff they use for gas pipe might not work

Are you out of your head or is such bullshit normal to you ?

It's you that needs a belt of a pipe.

Exactly how mine was he went a bit wrong as a pup and I got all stressed about it marching him through sheep every night and the poor sod didn't no what to do. Once I had that pointed out to me :) and i relaxed around them so did the dog and now he is quite chilled. The other night walking down the track some lambs had there head through the wire and jumped back out the grass and legged it he didnt even twitch. Early days but the signs are looking good. Personally I could never pts a dog of mine or rehome I would just persist no matter what

Its normal to me my dogs don't chase sheep so never get shot

No I guess they don't get shot, just battered with a pipe after you've locked them up for 2 weeks and then let them chase sheep.

The mind boggles.

What a fecking tosser. I am ashamed to see your Welsh a disgrace to your nation. If that is the only way you know of stock breaking you need to give up owning dogs as much as the OP.

 

Edited to add: This must be a wind-up surely? If it is you got me, :laugh: if it's not Cnut.
