my corgi just chased one of our chickens, i was calling his name and it was like he had gone deaf. i am very frustrated. he bolted out the door. i dont know what to do, i want to keep him and our other animals safe.
Frances so true, he went nuts and they were flapping and clucking! lol
Don't blame the poor Corgi. His most basic instinct is to herd & when he started to "herd" those chicken, they probably just fussed up a storm & got him all excited.Dang chucks!
I agree with Bev but also have had rescues and free range chickens and have lost about 3 (one with each new dog/rescue). Will reply more tomorrow.
If I remember correctly you have not had him very long. Chasing a chicken would be a powerful temptation and calling him off it without having trained an excellant recal would be impossible. Practice recalls with a long line like a clothes line and great treats. When he is good at that you could try it with the chickens. Until he has a chance to learn it is a no no I would keep him leashed around the chickens. Chasing is a self rewarding activity so you have to make sure he can't do it.
