We have 3 dogs. Golden Retriever, Dachshund and Shepard mix. The only dog who messes with my chicks is the Shepard. She doesn't eat them, she plays with them and crushes them. She TOTALLY knows that it is wrong because when we are out there near them she won't go near them. But as soon as I walk out of site even for a second...... :-( she takes off with one. I read on an old post about the mountain man training and have tried that as far as tying her leash to me while I clean their cage and take care of them. Telling her NO when she even looks at them. Smacking her snout and saying NO when she sniffs one. After losing 2 chicks we started not letting her out at all if the chickens were out unless someone walked her on a leash. After #3 today which was my fault. We have started on our coop and I took my eyes off her for 2 min. And she dissappeared. I knew immediately where she was and I was soooooo mad. Today we are putting her kennel next to the brooder in the garage and getting a muzzle that she will wear when outside. I am at a loss as to what else to do????? Any advice is appreciated.
