I have been training our dog (an English Setter ) for about 2 weeks that there is a no biting rule with the new chickens. He had been listening great, and would run right by them without paying a bit of attention to them - I thought. I also offered a lot of praise and treats - so proud of him. Last night while I wasn't looking, he snuck up and got one of them! I was absolutely livid, and am afraid that if I had a gun in my hand, would have shot at him in my fit of rage.... Today he is chained up - I don't know for how long, and has had many a long sermon, and a few nose slaps. I guess you really can't teach an old dog new tricks after all.
