If you train the dog properly they can get along fine. Let me know if you want some training tips and I can PM you. (it's kind of long). You will need to dedicate time to this. One introduction will not be enough.
With lots of training Best of luck
i need training tips
seek someone local to help train the dog. Online advice without knowledge and showing proper techniques wont get you far. We have friends with the same mix and he isnt safe to visit us because he wants to chase, catch, kill.
It has nothing to do with the breed or the dog, it is just the training. Their dog is not well trained around birds. Also, a dog may be fine with their birds at their house because he understands those things belong to you. But new birds at a different house will not be treated the same way by the dog.
If you put in the time and are very constant you will do fine. Watch videos, read peoples advice and then adjust according to your own experience. Basic dog training classes are never a bad idea. You will want to get the basics down before you start working with the birds. I will PM you right now.
My new chocolate Lab - Diesel was good around my ducks, chickens, and geese, but one day he got a hold of one of my ducks and picked it up in his mouth, poor guy died two days later. Now I really believe that the dog was only playing and doing what comes naturally to him, but now I can't trust him around my birds unless I am right there (and yes the death of that duck was my fault).
I wish he could be around them all day and I wouldn't have to worry - He loves their pools.
He is now 7 months old any information on training dogs to be around birds will be appreciated.
