    Don't expect guineas to be able to chase away very many dogs. or any other predators. They may warn you with that constant loud noise when a stranger or predators are near but that won't usually scare anything away. They are used as "watch dogs" for their watchfulness not their bravery.

    They will NOT chase away a dog, but together they will take down a snake, and eat bugs like nobody's business. They are freaky looking, not affectionate, and LOUD
    Good luck
