Well hopefully we will be able to keep her I'm not planning on giving her up that easily, I think Dad was on a rant too because he didn't really want to get a dog as some of our neighbours dogs are savages for killing chickens and we had out whole stock wiped out before. It would just make it a whole lot easier if we didn't have to be watching her every two seconds and I don't want to use the radio fence on her.

i understand, i really do. i have kept all sorts of different types of animals at the same time, with mixed levels of success ( had a puppy kill my favorite house rabbit once, it was awful) i really am just trying to stress the back-up plan. it doesn't matter that she is a mix, she is a dog. some dogs just have a very high prey drive, and JRT are one of them. i mean they were bred to kill small animals. on the other hand, i have heard of them being kept on farms and things, so though i don't think it is impossible to teach her to ignore/not chase or kill your chickens, i just hope that she is given every opportunity to have a great and lasting home with you. i would over-plan how to keep her separate, train her, etc to avoid having to re-home her.

Yeah I've been thinking of ways to train her and ways to keep her away from the chickens, we have a radio fence already, but I hate, hate, hate training dogs into that thing. We had it for out current dog but she's old now and she never really used it anyway as she's great with our small animals, and is a terrier so gives me hope with the pup. It breaks my heart to have them go through that thing. I was thinking if she is bad with the poultry to muzzle her while she's out playing? I don't know if that's cruel or not, she'll be in the house all the time and going for walks without it on.

a muzzle may be a good plan if the training doesn't work, you will have to watch her carefully. when my dad's pup got the bunny, it was literally in a matter of 5 seconds. unfortunately we had taught her to chase the bunny when we weren't looking by punishing her for doing it in front of us. i wish i had known then what i know now! anyway, she was only corrected a couple of times for chasing him, and then she didn't do it anymore, in front of us. i was exercising him (the bunny)in the yard and had the pup out to go potty ( she was only a few months old) i got a phone call and ran in the house, grabbed the phone and ran out again. just seconds. when i got back out, she was chewing on him and wagging her tail at me. the lessons i learned from the mistakes i made.

Thankfully I can keep the puppy totally away from my four bunnies. How do you train them not to do it behind your back? Or is there anyway?

I guess the concern is when the dog goes outside to go potty? Is she going to be indoors and only go outdoors for potty breaks? If so and she does not like the chickens or likes them too much what about keeping her on a leash outside?

There are two methods....modify the behavior with positive reinforcement...or create avoidance to the birds using an e collar.

Personally I think management (the fence) would be the safest alternative. Positive reinforcement to "fix" this is complicated and long and an ecollar, if used wrong can really really confuse the dog...

we can speculate up the yin yang about this dog you don't even have yet...when you get the dog, tell us exactly whats going on, and we'll go from there...its to long and complicated to type out a method for a dog that isn't even displaying the behavior we want to alter.

Yeah only outside for potty breaks, she will be supervised either way whether she likes them or not because my garden isn't totally secure and I don't want her rambling around the country side, especially if she chases farm animals. It would be nice though if she doesn't go for the chickens so I can play with her outside off the leash.

I understand I agree with Crio, lets wait till you guys get her and see what she does.
