    Has she chased since she got kicked....Occassionally that can be the cure..........

    So the chasing has been happening for a while?.......She is self rewarding and that is hard to train out of a dog. If she has been kicked and still chases you have a huge problem.
    We had one blue heeler who chased our horses and used to hang in their tails. We used the long line method....every time the dog was out with us, he was on a long-line. As soon as we saw him go towards the horses we used to stop him and recall him and give him awesome rewards....this dog was a really good working dog and extremely obedient, except with our horses. he did not do this with other stock.

    So it means you have to be exact and only have Nugget where she can get near the horses on-longline, with you attached to the other end. And you have to stop and recall her. if she gets into it too much and does not listen (to the recall), you may have to actually jerk her and at the same time use a word like "urgh" or "enough", But when she comes after that to you, again, you have to reward her for coming....Unless you are right with a dog, when they chase and you catch them in the chase, the dog will not understand why it was chained up after the fact....The dog only has a very short period of connecting what it did wrong. it has to be caught in the act and the reprimand has to be immediate. So if you did have her on a long line and she chased....if you were really quick and caught her in the act and immediately tied her up, there is only a very small chance that she might get the connection.
    I find the sudden stop at the end of a longline gives more hope of the dog "getting IT"
    But you have to be very exact and committed to always being there. One time off loose and another successful chase in the training period and you are back at the beginning. Stock chasing is one of the most difficult things to un-train if it has been established for a period. These thing have to be nipped in the bud ASAP

    Good luck, I hope Nugget did not get hurt

    What is it with cattle dogs and swinging on horses tails?

    I used to live with one who loved doing this and all the horses would let him, like they didn't even notice. And one ended up with a very short tail because of it, much to the owner's disgust.

    And mine has given it a go too.

    But that's not the same as a Staffy chasing horses. What Newfsie said. Use a lead so he can't do it. Reward him if he can pay attention to you instead of the horses when you ask. But he may never learn it's a bad thing so you may always have to have him on lead when you're around the horses with him. Heelers / Cattle dogs are bit better at ducking the kicks.

    'ruby mc nugget' - Just for your own peace of mind - if this was me - I would be checking Nugget very carefully before I would put the pup to bed - to make sure she is OK. Things like being able to walk OK and not bleeding at all and most importantly - eating her dinner !

    I would also make sure that she is warm and comfortable in her bed for tonight - because regardless - she may be uncomfortable tomorrow. A kick by a horse can do heaps of damage to our pups - which may not show up when it happens - but later. Keep an eye on her.

    ruby mc nugget - that is good that you have done all that - and - I hope that your pup will sleep well tonight and be fit and healthy in the morning. She may be a bit sore and sorry for herself in the morning - but that will be understandable.

    Take care - both of you.
