she hasnt tried yet but i would like to bring her up around the chickens and hopefully she will see them as friends or part of her family to guard. she is almost 10 weeks old,golden retriever puppy. usually she will just ignore them,but sometimes she runs around scattering the chickens. once they run off she just lays down. im naive on the subject as my last dog was a german shepard,she gaurded all the animals we owned (cats, ducks,goats,rabbits) and never tried to eat them. she actually sleep in the same house with the duck and goat! anyway i really wanted a shepard again but this puppy sort of found us. she has learned her lesson with the cats, and knows not to mess with them. but, how do i train her around the chickens? any tips or advice would be great!!
