All Work and No Play…

Ben & Holly Tobogganing

Today was a fun day. Snowboarding, sledding and play with another family who came to visit for the afternoon. Beautiful sunny weather, crisp snow and fun friends on the farm. Our long driveway up to the whey tank makes for a most excellent sledding run.

    I came across your blog while trying to find info on breaking a puppy’s chicken killing habit (killer Kita). I’m trying to help a puppy who was dumped here (happens a lot as we live at the end of a country road) learn to leave our free range chickens alone. There isn’t a humane society to take her to and I can’t shoot her (the neighbor’s suggestion). I’m happy to let her stay, but the chickens were here first and our other dogs don’t bother them.

    So, your blog about Kita was encouraging and I think I’ll try the “Good” and “No” because I seem to have her attention, as you may put it.

    But I do have a question. As I said, our other older dogs do not bother the established chickens that run free by day. However, I had some chicks that I raised in seclusion until they were old enough and it was warm enough to let them out. The dogs had been around the baby chicken cage the whole time but the day I let them out for the first time, our Weimaraner immediately killed them all. Any idea why that happened and how we can avoid that in the future?

  3. Sorry to hear that. It is possible that because they were new the dog didn’t understand about them being a protected animal. Ours clear out pests and I can imagine from his point of view they might have looked like that. I would take some time to introduce him to them before leaving him with a new animal.

    Sounds reasonable. I’ll continue to watch your blog in case you put more dog training tips on it. Thanks so much!
