I am wanting to get another dog. I will save one from the pound, full grown or a pup.
Thing is, we live on about an acre, of which the back yard is about half that, and we have a bunch of chickens (love the eggs), some free-ranging and some in coops.
Baby chicks run around free, sometimes gotten by the cats and maybe roadrunners. Natural selection. (Sometimes the baby chicks even fall into the shallow water pan and drown. :rolleyes: )
How in the heck can I keep an inquisitive pup, or even an older dog from chasing and disrupting the poultry? We have an old dog who lets them walk right over her, but every guest dog I have over goes nuts. I would like to be able to “train” a new dog from doing this.
Any experiences or advice would be appreciated.
