We have chickens in our backyard, they have a coop and a fenced in area to forage in. My daughter has a dog. She doesn't eat the chickens but like to go in their forage area and eat their poop and food. Of course she knocks down the fence to get to them. Any ideas how to break this behaviour?

It is going to take training. I would try an air horn, or a can with pennies in it, I've used a coffee can. When the dog goes to the fence use the horn/rattle the can. When the dog turns away from the fence, give a reward/praise. You can PM me if you need more help or better explanation.
