Our Labrador Retriever, who is 1 yr old, killed one of our hens and ravaged the other 2 but they are ok. Anyone have any experience with a dog being trained to leave them alone? I can't believe how much damage was done in such a short time, it looked like she went on a rampage, feathers everywhere, things knocked over, and she partially ate the one she killed. My kids and I were very upset. I know I saw the Dog Whisperer train the Marley & Me author's Lab to leave small animals alone. But when I brought home 2 day old chicks today, the dog heard them peeping and barged into the house like a maniac. I had to fight hard to get her to go back outside. Any thoughts?
