    In my experience working with high drive dogs tail chasing behavior is usually due to drive balance. Unless it’s become a compulsion it goes away on its own when a drive balance and management plan is implemented. The malinois that lived with me for a couple months had a habit of tail chasing when I started working with him. It faded without specific attention as the dog adjusted to having its drives balanced on a regular basis. I’ve observed this in several other dogs I’ve worked or consulted with.
