Training a dog to leave the guineas alone (General Discussion)

by Trillium, Thursday, July 06, 2017, 09:24 (104 days ago)

I love my dog. He's 1.5 years old, and well-trained overall. He's great around people and other dogs (he even volunteers as a therapy dog), but he can't seem to shake his instinct to chase the guineas. As far as I can tell, he's not trying to hurt them, he just wants to play. I've tried a few things, and I think he's better than he used to be. But he's still not great, and I'm afraid I'll never be able to let him out in the yard when they start free-ranging or he'll scatter them into the woods.

Any advice on how to train a dog not to chase your birds? He's a standard poodle. Smart as can be, but oh, that energy!
