You NEED to check out this video Link is to 1channel or letmewatchthis. You can Google Season 3 episode 9 of the Dog Whisperer if you want to check it out somewhere else . It has helped me so much already... It's the second part to the episode, and is about a Labrador Retriever that was killing pet chickens. I am modifying this to train my young LGD Clem with my rabbits. She is fine with my chickens, but is very excitable with my two rabbits, Frankle and Wanda. So if you are willing to put the time and effort into training your house dogs to mind the chickens, you can do it.
