"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Why Do Donkeys Hate Dogs?

Donkeys naturally have deep-rooted self-preservation skills.  What are predators for the donkey? Coyotes, wolves, cougars, bear and yes our precious pet dogs.  If we think about it the dog resembles the wolves and coyote the donkey does not know the difference until they are trained and understand their life is not in jeopardy. Our farm dogs are never able to get into the same space the donkey is living in. Our fences prevent accidents. When the donkeys come out our dogs are trained to stay in one place until called.  Next we show the donkey we are the leader over the dog and the donkey without abuse. A leader is a leader 100% of the time. 

Need help training your donkey?

Select Donkey Whisperer Farm.

Donkeys can learn to tolerate a dog but it takes a really good trainer utilizing outstanding leadership with the dog and the donkey.  The dog must never be authorized to chase, bite, nip the donkey. One kick is all it takes to kill the dog. Make sure your dog and donkey understand you are the leader with no abuse ever.

Safety tip:

Place hot wire beneath the paddock fence to ensure no dog or predator can get in by crawling under the fence.

Safety is the most important concern when working with equine (donkeys, horses and mules) and our beloved dogs.  

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

    It’s true I tend to be naive, so I’m not even gonna wonder about the carrot stick…Very interesting post. I didn’t know dogs and donkeys don’t mix! A friend of mine just rescued some miniature donkey that is even small for her breed (couldn’t tell you what that was), but she said after a week or so of watching said donkey get fatter and fatter, she got suspicious. Turns out she’s pregnant, and really too small to carry a baby, especially since the only thing she was exposed to was much bigger than her. Not sure what is going to happen with that, but she was very sad. Thanks for the post.

    Great explanation of why donkeys are afraid of dogs they have not been acculturated with. And I have never known that donkeys are great shepherds for cattle and sheep! I love all this information you bless us with here!
