Is it common for a dog to kill kittens?

My neighbor said my dog killed her kittens.

It is not at all uncommon for a dog to do something like this. We often forget that our furry, lovable companions are capable of such things. Small animals, such as kittens, spark dogs curiosity. Sometimes this can lead to the demise of the small creature.

It depends on the dog and their prey drive and if they were raised around small animals. It is definitely not uncommon for dogs to kill cats.

Most of the time yes. Dogs love to chase cats and might even kill them. But I have seen a cat and dog brought up together from the begining are quite close to eachother. Also it depends on the type of dogs.

Yes, it is entirely possible. Some dogs, especially the hound and hunting breeds, have a high prey drive and if not restrained and trained not to will attack and kill smaller animals just on instinct. With something as fragile as kittens, the dog may even have been trying to play and not realized how fragile they were.
