Thread: Low Prey Drive Dog?

    in finley nsw not much of that kind of stuff around here. No real reason for it I suppose most of the protection work he already does ie barking when some one is around. He is getting pretty good at obedience ie sit lay stay come. Anyone else got anything else I can train him in? Maybe tracking instead that would be cool

    Give him a go at Agility.
    Most if not all dogs once they get the hang of it love it.
    I have never done it but have read how others have done it and just how much their dogs trive on it.

    tracking is also great fun. i do that with my husky (YES my HUSKY haha, it was a bit of work but we got there) also google some dog tricks. my dog loves nothing better than learning to get me a can from the fridge or rollover etc etc. there are sooo many tricks you can teach that you can use in everyday life. its great not having to get up and close doors if your dog can do it!! haha

    This is only a limited list with minimal detail: Purina - Dog Sports

    I just loved the dog-diving. My old dog would've so loved that! It was her favourite thing to do.

    You might want to watch some of his other vids too. They're all demonstrated with a GSD!

    Prey drive is the desire to chase and grab a moving item.

    Some dogs learn to get drive satisfaction through certain things, some dogs may only display prey drive when you throw them a furry toy or they see a live animal etc - but that doesn't mean chasing something that isn't 'live prey' isn't prey drive.

    Fair enough, my logic didn't really make sense there.

    I suppose what I meant to say is not chasing a ball is not an indication that they have no prey drive.
