I am interesting in getting a dog that I can raise as a flock protector, to get as a puppy and raise with the chickens so it knows they are friends, not food. (I have had great success doing this with cats. Raise a dog with kittens and it really starts to think its a cat rather than a dog, lol). I am really interested in hearing what breeds of dog everyone has with their chickens (or has had in the past). I am interested in great success stories as well as great failures (kind of a what to do, what not to do, sort of thing). I found a great post on here the other day where someone had raised a German Shorthair Pointer with their chickens which I found very interesting! I would greatly appreciate anyone's advice, stories, and words of wisdom. Thanks so much!
