Question How do I train my boisterous pup?

Hi !
I've just got my second pup, a 12 week old german shepherd x labrador, and we are going to go to my stepmum's house for christmas, from sunday. The only problem is that she has loose chickens, and my pup, Abercrombie, was quite a stubborn and boisterous pup to train, but as good as gold, but i;m scared he'll attack the chickens, and seeing as he was difficult to train, i'm worried about what he's going to do. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know, and i'll put some pics up soon!

thanks

x + Woof!

I would leave him on a lead if you are worried about the chickens, until he looks like he is calm enough to be trusted, and then when he is he will still need watching 24/7 around the chickens.

Thanks! Would this be the same for going to the loo, because he always goes by himself

If there are chickens where he goes then I would, as he might hurt them or scare them giving chase to them.

It must of been the lab mix in it to be hard to train as Shepherds are not.!! In fact, most easy than any breed I have had and had plenty of dogs in my long life years.

I feel keeping the dog leashed and just let it look at them and talk calmly about the chickens, do not get loud yourself in any way. The better you are about them, the better for the pup. Shepherds have prey drive so most small things they do go for, so keep the pup confined and do not take a chance.

Lead the dog around so it knows chickens can be a way of life, get used to it dog. It will be good exposure and experience for the pup with something new. The more things, the better it should make your pup behave. Have a Great Christmas.

Absolutely, you can't train a dog to behave around chickens by letting it out by itself! You will need to go with him.
