Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey all, my husky, Xavi has suddenly taken an interest in catching birds. At first he would just stalk them and then pounce at one and scare em away. Until 2 weeks ago he caught a a bird and killed, after that he tried eating it and vomited it all out. I thought that he just got lucky n caught one but since then he has caught three others, killed them and put them in his food bowl. Any ideas on how to prevent this behavior.

No ideas on how to prevent this - do know that the husky girl I had 40 years ago was a pro at catching birds right out of the sky!  Nothing I could do about it - she was a marvelous hunter of mice and birds, also a predilection for porcupines but they have built in  protection Very Happy.  My current boy can catch voles under the snow while on leash right before my eyes - hunting is in their DNA!

If you really don't want him doing it, don't let him outside unsupervised. Take him out to do his business and then bring him back in. If you're out there with him and he starts stalking, try redirecting his attention with something else like a higher value treat.

Some plants really attract birds as well. May want to consider removing those types of plants if that is the case. I know I have a cup plant that attracts tons of finches and other small birds that I would remove if Loki got bad with birds. When he had his baby oppossum phase I was saw they have hawk decoys so birds avoid your yard.
