Great Pyrenees Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 11/5/2006
We have a 12 mo. old male Pyr, guarding sheep (for about 4 months). He's very sweet and social, always in the pasture. Problem: he picks out small/weak/favorite ewe lambs and "plays" with them like a toy---chases, tackles/'rough-houses'/gnaws on their legs. One got so bad we had to give her to another farm. Recently tried the "dangle-stick" approach-- he managed to lose it more than once. Before getting a new block on him, he started up w/ different lambs. The current necklace is doing the trick, but very awkward and makes me feel sorry for him. Will this really "cure" the behavior? Or just prevent it? ~marti
