Springer Spaniel killing chickens
I have a two year old springer spaniel bitch that I bought nine weeks ago. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
She is a fantastic dog and listens to my commands except when she sees a chicken and then she goes straight in for the kill.
I wonder if shes been trained to kill, the big problem is that I live on a small farm and keep free range chickens please try and help if you can as I would love to keep her.
This is a tricky one as springer spaniel instinct is to go after brsd, after all they are bred to flush them out.
Try training her out of it using a citronella collar but I would suggest talking to a dog trainer about this.
