He has a sisiter that is 6 months old and is a Black Lab /mix. she to was with him shortly getting in on the action. I pulled him off. and scolded him allthe way home, this moring I let them out and went in to bake a cake, 30 min. i called them to come in and no one came. I put on my jacket and when out to look for them. Just as I started up the 4 wheeler they both came running around the shop and both are cover in blood. I called to the boder collie and asked him to show me what he caught and he took me to the dead deer. Is this something I shuld be worried about? How do I stop this from ever happening again, some one help! There must be a way I do not want to have to put him down. thank you

Yes worry about it. Your dog is likely to end up getting shot by an angry hunter for running deer. During deer season keep your dog under your control at all times.

I don’t hunt so maybe some deer hunters will chime in and correct any misconceptions.

Well the dog's in danger.

Here in the northeast the game wardens will summarily shoot any dog that chases deer.

The only humane thing to do is to ensure that the dog remains tied up. It can't be allowed to run free.

There is no cure for dogs that kill other animals.

I am sure the State Game Wardens would know what to do.

Call them.

You could try a pat on the head along with a hearty “Good boy!”. Then quietly take the carcass and cut it up for steaks, chops and dog food.

You either have 1 very fast dog, or that deer was injured or sick, imo. When I was a kid, I used to watch from the loft of our barn as our collie dog chases deer , and he never even managed to get close to one. I’d say it was the same deer the second time, and he had some kind of problem that would have made him fall victim to any of several predators. In short, you’ll never cure the dog of wanting to kill deer. But the deer will cure the problem by not being slow enough for him to catch, usually.

There are too many deer and not enough deer hunters... and the wolves are all gone... and too bad there aren’t more dogs like yours.

Maybe contain your dog? If you let him run wild, he will become wild. He certainly should not be put down for being a normal dog.

You may need that dog when the Obamans take over. They might outlaw meat because of cow flatulence causing global warming.

I can’t imagine a border collie going toe-to-toe with a deer and not needing at least some stitches.

Buy a really big freezer from Sam’s Club. Then, you should bring a gun, your hunting licence, and a hot cup of coffee and just follow your dog one day. When he leads you to a deer, take the shot and give your dog a doggie treat. Then take the deer to your local butcher. Put all 50 pounds of meat (in the form of sausage, steaks, and ground) in the freezer and be glad you don’t have to buy your meet from the store. Then give your dog another doggie treat.

When you aren’t hunting, put your dog on a leash or build a fence.

Get a fake target deer (you can find them for archery practice) and put a shock collar on your dog. Dog gets near the deer zap him. After a bit he won’t go near the deer.

Key there of course if he falls for the fake deer.

Just an idea.

Hmmm... border collie eh?

I feel yer pain. These are good dogs but demand to be dominated and worked.

Your dog sounds bored.

I understand that its difficult to find time to work with these dogs as you probably spend half of the day removing pawprints from the ceiling.

I really think the dog just needs more work. Dont let it become the alpha

Dog Write Hi, My name is Jette. I'm a pure bred Border Collie. I chase deer on my owners property. The idea of me taking down a deer is beyond my abilities. I herd them off the property back into the woods. Sometimes the deer charge at me but I'm pretty quick and stay out of the way of their hooves. I'm not sure of kin who are mixed though. You never know what else they have in them. Hope this helps. Regards, Jette

Being a dog lover and afficianado, I am familiar with the traits of many breeds of dogs. I know the Border Collie to be a very intelligent and trainable breed.

This may be more than you can handle so I would recommend contacting a professional dog trainer and see if your dog can't be trained to skin and gut the deer.

It sure would save you a lot of trouble.

Good luck and let me know how that works out for you.

In Michigan, it’s legal to kill any dog running, chasing and/or killing deer. Period.

I have a Jack Russell that goes to Alaska and kills Kodiak bears. I just don’t know how to stop her. I took away her credit cards but she just turns tricks to pay for the plane tickets.

Check to see if you're signed in.

This ain't Dogs R' Us.

But, seriously, how the hell does a year and half old Border Collie have a sister that's 6 months old?

And a black lab mix at that.

Izzat you, Hussein?

Are you tryin' to start some crap?

Last year my Belgian Tervuren disappeared for a week. Turns out he chartered a full African safari...We now jokingly refer to him around the house as “Dog-tari”.

Change the food.

We had some mixed breed dogs and they killed the nieghbor’s goats. Come to find out, they weren’t eating (we had been noticing alot of food going to waste) their dog food from the stupid Chinese melamine (sp) and they were starved.

But border collies aren’t hunting dogs by nature. Why else would they use them to round up sheep without fear of them attacking the sheep?

Might as well have him trained to drag it home, cut and wrap it and stick it in the freezer as well!
