I'm confused, are you saying mals lack prey drive?
OMG, NO hahaha. ihartgonzo said herding dogs lack the prey drive to kill and maim things... I was pointing out a mal is a herding dog... I guess I should have said "lack of prey drive HAHAHAHAHA" instead LOL. The tone should be one of disbelief LOL.

I actually do well with a GSD and Pit Bull. They get along well and play well together. Judge prefers chase bit will engage in other play.

To me it really depends on the dogs. Which is why I typically only introduce puppies to the pack and I really evaluate temperament as to whether it will work or not.

Ohhh okay lol

Yeah...

Mucho prey drive in herders actually, I agree. Sloan's first(and only) time on goats: I video'd this hoping to get a great herding video because Backup did amazingly right before her. Well... http://youtu.be/6CI0EQwswBY (Don't click if you're squirmish)


Yeah, the camera was dropped, dog was caught, choked off, goat luckily had a ton of coat to protect it but we opt'd against ever putting her on livestock again. The best was the guy running the HICs came up to us all solemnly and said, I'm really sorry but I can't pass her after that. Well, um, duh?

Lol, oh my gosh, poor goat.

I would assume most herders would have a different type of prey drive than, say, a sighthound or a Husky, no?

I really don't have much experience with them at all.

Oh and I always forget GSD's are herders. And to me, they have an entirely different "prey drive" than, say, a Border Collie or an Aussie - just from the small amounts I've seen and been around.

Oh Sloan... That poor goat, lol.

Elsie's killed small animals; she hunts mice like a fox in the snow. It's adorable.

On the other hand, she's never treated a small dog like a prey item. She treats them like dogs. She adores tiny dogs.

She doesn't like dogs that play by body slamming hard, and she doesn't like being hurt by other dogs. She's leery of boxers because most of the ones she's met have been pretty rough players.

It's about energy level and play styles. Sophie is fast and strong so she kind of intimidates dogs that just like gentle wrestling. She does best with other bullies and some hounds and boxers, definitely any boxer. Watching two bullies having a good time is like watching a football game, run and tackle till they're both worn out.

All the BC's I've lived with have hunted small prey animals like birds and stuff. So yeah lots of prey drive like any breed!

Poor Will, he was a kennel dog most of his life before my parent's bought him. It took him a while to learn how to play with other dogs. He has a blast with the girls now though. He plays pretty rough and tumble, but thats probably because his play style is modeled off of theirs.

Lily hates the way labs act and play. Its the one type of dog she has a short fuse with. Everyone else she's a tramp with. Oy vey!
And for some reason she has a special love for the following: any large black dog (except labs) especially Dobes, standard poodles, and doxies... even if they are mean doxies, which is just weird as all get out.

Small herding dog and large retriever. They don't mix that well.

Buster wants to chase, cut, and nip. Ruby likes body slams. Sure, he's cut her off and sent her skidding sideways before (took out my wire fencing for the garden!) but largely they want to play in different ways.

Steve does really well living with two bullies. He and Luce play. He and Mushroom don't have any great love for one another, though.

But he HATES other bullies. He doesn't like dogs in his face, and they tend to be super-exuberant, in-your-face, don't take no for an answer type of dogs.

He hates Labs as well.

Poor goat, but I have to say Emme was the same way when I first put her on sheep. She wanted to kill that **** sheep. We of course got her P
Off the sheep and it was fine. And ofter that emme learned to
Tone her drive down a tad and she was able to play with the sheep again
