The compulsive chaser

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


Some dogs are compulsive chasers. They enjoy running after small children - barking at them or even intending to bite. Occasionally the child falls and hurts himself and is scared half to death. The more the child screams and the faster he runs, the more persistent the dog is in his chase.

The performance of the dog is the master's  responsibility. He might be legally subject to arrest and conviction for owning a dog which is a public nuisance.

Children : You must catch the dog at the beginning of this tendency. It is the best for the puppy to grow up with young kids so that they become fast friends. At the slightest suggestion of his chasing a child, even if the puppy is 3 or 4 months old, he MUST be punished.  Be STRICT with your dog. Keep close supervision over him.


  In training him not to run after children, take him out on a rope 30 to 50 feet long, and when he attempts to go after a child, jerk him back strongly so that it pulls him off his feet. You have to reprimand him severely and continuously. There should be constant supervision on your part when you allow the dog to play with children until he loses the desire to chase children.

Other Animals : The three most common objects of a dog chase are poultry, sheep and of course cats. The problem aggravates when the dog indulges in killing of other animals and gets the " taste of blood ". It then becomes extremely difficult to rehabilitate him. Most probably for the dog this is mere sports. He tends to enjoy his speed and dexterity with subsequent kill.

To train him not to attack and kill, you should make him familiar with the cattle and poultry right from his puppy stage. Again, close supervision is a must. Most of the dogs love to chase cats. This habit can be stopped if the dog grows up with with a kitten in the house. My personal experience with my Irish Setter shows this to be the effective method! They grew up to become the best of friends!!

There are many methods for curing the bloodthirsty habit. One method of curing a dog of killing chicken is to whip him over the head with the dead chicken and then tie the dead chicken around his neck until it practically rots off.

Cars  :  Car chasing is a sporting event for dogs; probably a primitive instinct which made them chase game for food. Nowadays chasing the big things on wheels is a substitute for the food finding instinct. Some breeds like the Collie are compulsive chasers , probably due to their herding instinct.

This habit is dangerous and can prove to be fatal if not checked at an early stage. One method of curing this habit is to get a friend who is a stranger to the dog drive by with a whip. As the dog approaches the car, he has to let him have it. Several sharp blows to the body should impress on him that there is pain associated with chasing cars.
