    OK so we lost 4 chickens to 2 foxes, the "different factor" was we fenced in the Human area from the chickens,
    and my dog couldn't get out to the chickens that were free ranging on our 5 acres

    so now the G/F is freaked out about be getting 6 more baby chicks, Im having to fence them in a run,
    5 feet wide from the coop for a length of 25ft then an area of 20x20 back yard,
    it basically wraps around the human fence garden/ patio fire pit, chicken poop free area,,,

    so i need a way for my dog to get into the run without the chickens getting into the human side,,,
    and my dog isn't a doggy door type of dog,,,so I'm stumped

    Most dogs take time to learn but use doggy doors eventually. . Seems like that maybe your best option
