Default shepherds who chase and bite some dogs

Quick question

Some shepherds like to chase and then nip and try to subdue certain dogs that trigger a prey response in them. But these same shepherds live in houses with cats and never dare mess with them.

So this chase nipping is clearly controlled like the dogs know what they are doing. Is it just a lack of respect the shepherd has for the dogs it is doing it to? Someone must know more about this topic??? Because i know the shepherds know what they are doing when they do this they dont do it to every dog and they control it with some dogs and with some dogs they will nip hard.

I know my dogs can sometimes get over excited when running and playing with other dogs. So I don't allow the play to escalate to that level. Usually I just can make sure they have a ball or something in their mouth or break up the chase game before it goes to crazy.

I think it depends on the other dog in question. Mine plays different with different size dogs. She plays rougher with bigger dogs and she uses her paws to play with smaller dogs. I do have cats and she is very focused on them, but she is not rough with them either. They actually play right back with her.
