Training your dog to be “chicken friendly”

For those of you lucky enough to live where you can have chickens (I envy those fresh eggs and the natural bug eaters) – if you haven’t already started AND you have a dog or two…you might be wondering how to make sure everyone lives in peace.

As with introducing any new pet or guest animal, it is important to impart the animal’s status in your eyes to your canine(s).

Here’s a great blog post on doing just that!

One KEY ITEM, and it is mentioned several times in the article…never ever let your dog see you chase a chicken (or cat or another dog).  In dog culture that means that it is ok when the alpha (you) are not around, for the next in command to do it (them).  🙂
