IMO the desire to chase animals isn't really a direct correlation to "prey drive" in the sense that it translated well into work-related drive. I've seen the laziest, lowest-drive dogs on the planet go batty for chasing a squirrel but have no interest in, say, doing obedience for a ball reward. I think chasing animals is just that--a predatory instinct to chase animals! Some might disagree, but I guess I've just seen to many very ho-hum dogs like to chase little animals to much to take the action very seriously in relation to "drive."
