Oh I know she wants to eat them lol
She is straight huntin dog, although we don't have much formal training on that front. Working on that this summer actually, but we spend allot of time in the woods and I have seen her run down a full grown hare. Squirrels too.
No doubt she wants to eat them, but she is also a very smart dog who does listen well and who has shown the ability to adapt to new boundaries. Never will she be unsupervised, but I believe there is still a good chance she may get along alright when I'm around. She doesn't go outside alone anyway or she'd be off huntin in the woods all day.
Dog whisperer is good, but it's also tv and way over simplified. The fact is, canine dynamics are much more involved than a simple hierarchy. Obviously this is neither the time nor place to go in depth, but there is allot more to it than TSST! and "dominance' (which is a crock... Leadership with consistency gives a much better description). That stuff works on family pets for the most part because they lead such dull lives anyways, but try it with a working quality Belgian Malinois and you will get your face bit off. On the other hand, that dog, with proper leadership, would kill or die for you in an instant.
