How do you raise a puppy so they are friendly to chickens. We have the puppies parents. Dad is a Pug. Mom is half weenier and half chihuahua.They don't bother the chickens. When the puppy got about nine months old. Two chickens disappeared. Don't know if he was the one to get them. But then my Wife caught him with one. That chicken survived. Had a puncture wound in her chest. We gave that dog away. Now we have two more puppies by the same parents. They have been on solid food for about a month now. Now that it's starting to warm up I'm thinking about keeping them in the run with the chickens while they are too small to do any harm to them. Run is 1000 square foot. Is that a good way to train them to be friendly with the chickens or is there some other way I should train them.
