So I decided a big dog would be a great way to ward off foxes, coyotes, and the neighbor's dogs. So I now have a 5-1/2 week old pointer rottweiler mix. Has anyone else ever tried this? I've already started showing the pup the flock. The chickens are scared, but Rosie doesn't seem to mind. She's curious. Rosie likes the goats, it seems. Anyway, it seemed reasonable to me to train the dog to hate foxes, and to feel responsible for the chickens + goats. What do y'all think? Opinions? Tips/advice?
