Where I live we have a lot of deer trails, but I don't know how to make sure my dog doesn't chase the deer instead of what it is supposed to be chasing.

E collar is one way, this is an area of dog training I don't know much about, but I would think that it would work.

When your in the turkey woods from sun rise to sun set, wear out a pair of boots, and 4 cushions every time you go you know you gave it all you had.

Take him for walks if you can. If you come across a deer or even scat from a deer, firmly and sharply yell NO! Scare your dog a bit with it. I had to teach my dog not to chase rabbit, prarie dogs and deer. Best way was when he was a puppy and seen something run his head would perk at attention and I'd yell NO before anything happened. Now he perks his head..sees its nothing he's hunting and continues looking for birds.

sorry I didn't have alot of time to explain fully then.Out in the field as pups, when they first see deer, I tell them very sturnly-NO several times and throw a whoa in there for good measure. As I am saying no, I am reaching for the remote and turning it up all the way. By no means do I like to use the collar ,ever. In the same breath they do wear them each and everytime we leave the yard. Just because they are on does not mean I use them to correct them. It is only a last resort. o.k. so the the verbal did not work. I will knick them once and say nothing. If for some reason none of that has worked I will let them have it,never saying another word. I want them to think the deer or rabbit did it to them, not me. once or twice is all it takes. I had a 150 inch deer at less than 50 yards stand up and the pup ignored it, even as it ran off. Me on the other hand, I wanted to chase it, I guess I needed a collar on that day.lol. good luck. P.S. anytime we are doing training we get the collars out so that the dogs associate them with having fun. Our dogs start jumping around and get excited when I pull them out of the cupboard. I have seen other dogs cowl in a corner when they see theirs. Over use is a bad thing. JMHO

Ditto Iceman09.

E collar reinforcement worked with my two pups. They both ignore, or just watch deer that we jump now. And just like above, my dogs go nuts everytime I get within a foot or two of their collars. If you use em correctly, they will work wonders with your dogs.

Put him in a fifty gallon barrel with a deer hide and roll him down a hill. He will never want to see or smell a deer again, might have PETA on you though haha. Some old timers told me this but. I personally would not try it haha blink.gif
