I'd like to train our Great Pyr to gaurd our poultry. So far I've been screwing it up. I was told that allowing him to sniff the birds was teaching him they were food. Crap. lol I've been taking him into the coop and run on a leash and allowing him to be a part of the flock. I also just took him in yesterday off leash. The big fear I have is the birds freak out and run every which way making as much noise as possible. This is incredibly exciting for our GP. He'll be sitting there just watching until they do this and then he gets up and gives chase. He's yet to harm any of them but probably because I call him off the minute he gives chase. Advice?
