I don't care if a dog has three eyes, and three tails. If he does his job, and he survives his first year, he is in my bloodline.
Now I cross this with an allergy to anything that wiggles, crawls, bounces, or moves. I will be presumptuous and claim that none of your dogs are bred to those standards. Your side effects will not be as pronounced as mine were. The level of the side effects are not important, for this discussion.
First off, you give them the allergy to anything that wiggles, crawls, bounces, or moves. You try to have this dog around livestock that you want to survive, and you are pissing in the wind. They have lost all self control, and are beyond anally OCD. We intentionally do this to our dog! I am the last one to ever be accused of being a Bunny Hugger, but a dog deserves a happy life, and not one continuous compulsion to WHERES THE BALL! This dog knows no peace. I could put a humane shock collar around your neck for a week, and teach you this level of non stop frustration.
My dogs live under foot, so this Gyp was allowed to destroy everything in sight, with her chewing. So much was destroyed I could not begin to list it. When she destroyed a brand new $500.00 Stihl Professional Gas Powered Weed Eater, I penned her up.
Enough of this story. Now comes the test.
Do you trust your Prey Drive trained dog, to stay alone inside your house to protect it while you are gone?
We will sit and let folks marinate on this question for awhile. This is just the first of the many disastrous side effects we will discuss.
This question will illuminate where the real danger to your valuable possessions currently is.
