New Dog Learns About Chickens
Storm is a rescue dog so he has a few problems but he quickly understood that the chickens were not for chasing but to be protected. This photo was just after he looked in the run for the first time. He ran a couple of circles around the yard and came back to see if they were real. Even when he first arrived he understood basic commands so we let the chickens out into the yard and only had to tell him a few times not to stalk and scare the chickens. Now he'll stand right next to them and pretend to not even notice.
We just returned a friends dog after minding him for 3 months while they were in Australia. Even after all that time he still stalked the chickens so not every dog will take to them right away.
