Training definitely works but it is harder to train a bird dog to leave the birds alone. Especially for someone just getting a dog and already having chickens they are attached too. I have Golden Retrievers as well as my Pomeranians and Papillons. My Goldens took a lot more time to realize the chickens were not to be hunted.Phoo. My Golden retriever never bothered my chickens. It's not about breeds, it's about training. Period.
