    Hi all, we have three dogs and they are all fine with the chooks, there was only one time when our youngest dog (about 2 years old) killed a chook, but my aunt snapped him out of it before I moved here and we haven't had a problem since.
    Two weeks ago, one of our chooks died, we suspect she was egg bound and we buried her, and we even put bricks and wood over the 'grave' but our staffy is still digging her up. It is disgusting. How can I get him out of this?

    If you can , next time consider cremation . It's probably safer , if you are not 100% sure of the cause of death. Dogs have a keen sense of smell, and its distressing for you to have to go through the burial ritual over and over. So unless you have some religious reason not to , just consider it as an alternative .

    Wire (check for sharp edges so the dog's paws stay safe) and then the stones.
