Chicken killer

So my Boxer did the biggest NO NO on our property. He killed a 3 month old chicken. So how do I break him of this and fast!

Any help would be helpful

I've never had chickens but I do wonder if the dog did something abnormal ...

Are you supposed to keep the chickens fenced off to prevent this type of thing.

Not necessarily - think about farms with free-range chickens on the loose with dogs and cats as working pets.

How does the dog behave otherwise - does he/she obey commands well?

when i first got chickens years ago, i took a baby chick and sat down with it and my dog. if my dog went to bite it or do anything more than sniff it, he got his usually punishment when he does anything else he shouldnt. just like teaching a dog that they cant go to the bathroom in the house, youve got to teach the dog that its not alright to kill a chicken, or at least bite the chicken

The chickens are fenced off in there area of the property with the horses. Well the baby chickens ran through the fence and got into the other part of the property that the dogs run around in. Needless to say he did not last long at all. I'm not sure if he just was playing with it or what but either way this will stop one way or another. He is a good dog other than this. He dose typical Boxer things but nothing crazy really. He is house broken, sits,lay's down, will wait for any food etc.

He probably played with it until he killed it on accident.. My dad's wolfhound would catch rabbits and bring them back.. most of the time they were alive.. since it already happened there's really nothing you can do until a situation like this arises again-YOU could make another situation for training.. like what was suggested - take a chick and show it to the dog and make sure he knows it's not a fluffy toy!
I tried it out after my dogs kept trying to eat my guinea pigs and rats.
They leave them alone now, for the most part. Once they learned those lil things belonged to ME they lost interest.

It's natural for dogs to do this if they have never been taught not to. It's their pray drive.
Because he's older, he's going to have to be monitored and taught the "Leave It" command

You can start small and make your way up to the real thing. Use treats in the beginning and set one in front of him and tell him to "leave it". When he no longer looks at the treat, reward him. Extend your times of wait.

Gradually work into the yard and as he focuses on the chickens that are penned give him the "leave it" command. Follow the same steps. When he focuses you say "leave it", and when he looks away you reward him.
Work closer and closer up to the chickens until you can have one right near him and give him the command.
If he moves towards them, pull him back to where you started and start over.

This will take some time and the key factor is consistency! If anyone else is taking him into the yard where he has view of the chickens, they too need to work with him.

When my boxer was younger, he hopped the electric perimeter fence and killed our neighbors cat and their kid's pet rabbit. Never had any other problems for about five years, then we moved and he killed one of our neighbors chickens by pulling it through a fence lol... typical dog. Just watch him and scold him if he gets too close. It happens.

My buddy's cat killed 3 of his neighbor's chickens. When the neighbor brought his cat back (he found him bloody in the chicken coop) my buddy offered him 3 eggs from the fridge. The neighbor didn't find it funny. He then offered chicken nuggets... Not so much. He ended up give his neighbor $30. 10 for each chicken.

convert your dog to be a vegetarian. Kidding. it is natural for them to go at critters.
My heeler catches at least 3 squirrels a year. He caught the black and white { skunk } cat in the back yard a month ago. Nothing i can do to stop him from wanting to kill anything with fur or feathers that come in his compound.

Tri-Tronics!!!!! no im not going to sell it,

its the shiz tho! we use them for hunting and working the dogs. its great for training also. just a little buzz and the dogs know exactly what they are doing wrong.

What Mytoy4 said--you basically have to train them out of any bad behavior. I even saw an episode on TV (one of those animal "cop" type shows) about this, where the owner's dog killed some other family animal. They eventually were successful, and could take the dog right into the pen with the other animals, and he would just sit there and ignore the other animals after training.

Put him into a small room with a fighting gamecock.

He will never get near a chicken again.
