    Hello and Welcome to BackYardChickens!

    Wow, with 7 dogs, you're really going to need to make your coop dog proof. Dogs luv chickens!

    You might want to bury at least a foot of fencing in the ground around the run to thwart diggers or put a hot wire a few inches above the ground all around the perimeter.

    Quote:Thank you. The 7 dogs are Baloo my Chow-mation and she is just interested in them, Papi Chihuahua, Mocha Chihuahua, and their 4 puppies. 2 puppies I am keeping and one is already promised out. Baloo stays in the back yard, which is completely fenced in, unless one of us lets her out and then she has to stay with us. The Chihuahuas i am afraid that if they tried something Fog Horn would rip them a new one quickly.
    I did put the fencing around the coop in the ground 1 foot to help with predator protection. So far I have not had any problems but we will see what happens in the future.
