Coco's prey drive would definitely be a 5. She comes within inches of catching squirrels, rabbits, racoons, or whatever small animal she sees. She has tried to make her way up trees, climb our wood pile in the backyard, play the waiting game or run back and forth underneath the telephone wire where a squirreln is. We have to check the yard first before letting her out to make sure there aren't any animals in our yard. She barks as if she is in dying pain if she sees an animal from the window or door, its quite funny!

Coco hasn't been around many cats, but she acts very curious around them. She won't chase them, but she tries to follow and sniff them.

4 for Diva, who restricts her prey drive toward animals on the TV to growling at them while still lying on the sofa.

5 for Gracie, who gets up and tries to find a way to get them.

Which is to say, in the absence of actual prey, they both keep a sharp eye out for anything that could be interpreted, even loosely, as prey.

It should be good to be Dog.

Weve had Kody 2 weeks now, and brought him into a household with 2 Abbysinians, and 2 smaller dogs (Pom and Papillon). We introduced him very gently to each critter and keep him under close supervision, especially in the house. He has nothing more than strong curiosity with the cats...nose poke is all we've seen. With the dogs, he loves to follow along and chase them if they are engaged in their own play, followed by nose poke if he gets close enough...they are both agile enough to get away from him if needed. Ive caught him nipping Nugget's flag-tail a few times, but nothing that raised significant alarm.

He does demonstrate unmistakeable jealousy if we're holding any of the other pets, but a stern look and sharp NO usually sends him on his way. We've taken a lot of time to talk to Kody while the other pets were engaged with us to reassure him that the other pets are precious to us too...seems like he gets it, but it will remain work in progress.

Ivan is a little over one year old. I ranked him a three.

He lives with three cats and lived with a Min-Pin foster for a while. If the cats run, he'll chase them, but if they remain calm, or occasionally with Tombstone show affection, Ivan looks at me with a completely bewildered expression. "Why is this thing rubbing all over my legs and face?"

He's definitely gung-ho for chasing rabbits and birds, but I've discouraged this from the get go. As he's usually leashed and I can tell him to leave it, I haven't really tested if I could call him off or not. Amazingly enough we haven't encountered any wild life while training for SAR.

I think we have to remember that just because a dog has a high prey drive doesn't mean that they are automatically going to chase and kill anything they see, and it doesn't mean that they are going to be totally uncontrollable. It's not unusual for the higher drive dogs to be the best behaved when they have an owner that understands how to use that drive to their advantage. Many times with novice owners, these dogs are considered "problem" dogs, because they owners don't know how to properly handle them. I'll take one of these "problem" dogs over one with no drive any day, all day. And I bet he won't run down the street after the neighbors cat

I chose #3--Middle of the Road. DJ will gladly chase a cat, ears perked to the limit, muscles aching to run, but if she's on leash and I tell her to 'leave it' when a cat walks across the street in front of us, she calms down and just gives me a very pleading look to "please unhook this leash", but she will ignore it.

Ajax does not have a strong prey drive. We got a kitten last year and he was like mother hen to the kitten. We have a few other cats that he does not mess with. We also have a free roaming rabbit. He loves to sniff his bottom and wait for the "gum drops" to come out - gross I know! We got six chickens a few weeks ago. I think Ajax wants to eat them but we are working on it. Hopefully when they are full grown he will be bored with them so I can have them free roaming.

already at nearly 5 months Caes loves to chase Seagulls, Crows and Squirrel! he doesnt get up to pace quick enough yet but he knows they are there and he makes a move for them! yesterday he went full for a seagull then ran around under it as it was drifting above him

too add I dont urge him and if I see him looking at it and sat no he just watches it! havent seen rabbits yet but if he caught one and killed it or injured it bad ( doubt he could yet) id finish it off if necessary and take it home and cook it no point in wasting the poor thing! I wouldnt give Caes any praise or encouragement though

My first Dobe was a 1. He automatically assumed (in part because he grew up around so many different critters) that ALL animals were MOM'S. And therefore, not to be chased or harassed in any way. He never even tried to chase the cats- just liked to lick them while they headbutted him, and often slept curled up with them. Same with small animals around the farm- he would notice and watch them, but never even offered to chase. If he went to sniff and they took off he just shrugged it off and moved on.

Current pup is a different story. He is still too young to truly differentiate prey drive from puppy craziness, but I definitely see some tendencies that were NOT present in our prior boy. I suspect that he will wind up being a 3-4. We are working diligently about how to properly interact with the cats and discouraging any chasing that doesn't involve the flirt pole. He will recall instantly from chasing deer or squirrels currently, but as he ages I believe it will be more challenging to reinforce, especially if he is loose in "his" yard.

My boy has an incredible amount of prey/chase whatever you want to call it. This allows him to be a phenomenal working dog. However he doesn't mess with my kid, bikes, cats, rollerbladers - doesn't show any reaction. Altho honestly I probably inhibited it right from the start. He is probably the most sane dog I have ever owned.

My sibe however will kill anything at anytime.

Sweep lives very harmoniously with two Boston Terriers but anything else, especially if it runs, is fair game. She killed five (5) groundhogs this year and has chased many a rabbit, squirrel and occasional cat.

I rated Leala as a 5. She is the captain of rodent control on our farm... I have pictures of her digging after moles with just her bum showing out of the hole lol. She is damn quick at it too. And comes running back COVERED in dirt all proud of her dead mole prize. She also gets gophers, squirrels... anything that she can out run/dig. Birds are her mortal enemy. Those sneaky guys can fly and she can't!

The chickens are safe from Leala because they live with the goats. And if you have ever seen a goat go after a dog, you know what I am talking about!

For our dobe, its all about the chase. He will corner the cat only to lick it. Our cat has personally eliminated the mole problem on our street and has now moved on to wild rabbits. The cat frequently deposits dead things on the front porch and these "packages" seem to be getting larger. Our dobe better look out as the cat works her way up!

Had to go with 5 for our Sofia.. As sweet and gentle as she is most of the time, she's been known to chase a cat up a tree ( ripping off a toe nail) a seagull into the ocean, a flock of swallows from our house over and over and OVER again. has caught and will NOT release rabbits.. ( don't wanna talk about this one) If a bike drives by the car while we're stopped at a light, she froths at the window and heaven help the block wall in the back of our house. She's slammed herself so hard to get at a skunk that we've taken to hold her in the 'down position' til the banshee stops wailing and calms enough to let out. Same with Bob Cats.. we see them on the trails while we're biking with her and she'd try to take them down if allowed.

Xena gets possums and she will dig right into mouse tunnels. If these dogs didn't destroy a catch they would be amazing hunting buddies.

When they chomp chomp lightly between their teeth, back and forth on someone or something?

Our Dobe does it to me, and it is always with affection and lots of love.

I'm.... really not sure.

Revy - the corgi with what seems to be low/medium chase drive, is the one dog that consistently catches (and kills) critters in the yard. This year, she's even killed 4 BIRDS, and she's only 10" at the shoulder!

Talla - she's low chase, low prey, but she's still young so the jury's still out on her.

Jayne - he gets very possessive over flirt toys and tugs (when presented in prey, if that makes sense) but isn't willing to work very hard to get them. I want to take him coursing, but I'm not sure if he'd stay on it the whole time. So it's like... high initial desire, and then he gets bored halfway through.

Kaylee - ummmmm...... haha yeah, she's insane. This is what she looks like when she's at the line, ready to lure course:





I have to keep her away from the field or she will go batsh*t crazy, screaming and struggling and shaking like a leaf. My coursing friends say she courses better than many sighthounds. HOWEVER - once it stops, she loses interest. Granted, at that point she can tell it's a plastic bag. (But, even though she knows by now it's a plastic bag and not a critter, she is still crazy to CHASE - so it seems to me the real joy for her is the chase, not the kill.) So I'd say her drive to chase is much higher than her drive to kill.... BUT I've heard that's fairly typical of dogs that are in it "for real" - I've been told that when sighthounds go hunting, it's the bitches that are fast and relentless, keeping on their quarry like white on rice, and running it to the male sighthound(s) to actually make the kill. That's why the bitches apparently have better follow as a rule.... it's what they're hardwired for. But I'm not sure how much that can be generalized.

Rate your dog's prey drive

I'm not sure if this counts as prey drive, but I don't think I'll ever be able to go for runs with Loki! He loves to chase me, so in that sense it would be fine, however he also wants to CATCH me, and will grab on to my jacket or pants to stop me, and then proceed to "break my neck" by shaking his head back and forth.
