    Hey everyone! I just bought my first home and am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to start a small flock after I get my yard and garden in order. It wont be until spring that i will have everything set up for success though. First question though is about dogs, are there any breeds/mixes that are particularly good/or bad with chickens, or would that just be something to train and socialize a canine friend for.

    Welcome from an imp in Renton

    Come and intro yourself on the Washingtonians thread in the Where are you forum. Lots of nice people there.

    I don't know dog breeds well, but a lot of people talk about Great Pyrenees as being good livestock guardians. Of course training is a must with any dog. Lots of dog trainers on here as well.

    glad you are here! We are neighbors. Im in Eatonville.
    We have a mutt mix who had to be trained to keep away from the birds and we have a border collie who just wants to help round them up at night.
