Dogs would gather together to chase down an older, younger, or injured animal, grabbing the jugular vein or abdomen, resulting in a kill.
The level of predatory drive depends on the particular dog and breed. Allowing a dog to chase down small animals strengthens the prey drive. It is springtime and you may see your dogs or cats killing birds and upsetting bunny nests.
It may not be a big problem depending on your needs.
Any dog with this history of preying on animals should never be around infants or small children under 3 at all.
This is why if you have a predatory dog you must be realistic about how you will control this. Find a veterinarian or behaviorist to consult with you on this problem to work out the most realistic, safe solution that protects the people and animals around this dog.
