8 month old caught and killed one of a few ducks that frequent my garden, my question is do I do my best to remove/prevent ducks in the area or do I address the dog's behavior? Thank you

thats up to you...

Do you like the visiting ducks?

If so, address the behavior and teach your dog to leave them be.

If not, duck proof your garden.

Some dobermans have too high a prey drive to force them to ignore this instinct. I would recommend securing your yard more appropriately.

IMO thats a natural instinct. For my dogs anything in their backyard is fair game. But when we are out its only ok to chase if I say it is.
