Recommendations- Windyana Jones and the Raiders of the Last Chicken 

Have you ever had or known of a problem with a dog killing chickens, for what would seemed like, the sport of it. It’s more common than you would think. A recent case was Windy the Podenco. He had been caught by his owner killing Chickens, belonging to a neighbour that lived near by. Windy hence his name had turned up as a puppy, on a windy day, outside his new owners front door. Dumped or abandoned, small, tired, wet and hungry, how could she turn him away. She already had five cats when she only wanted two, but Windy soon became part of the family.  This was a an interesting case, but with some work, resolvable. Dogs are predators so hunting is a natural instinct. That does not mean, however, that your dog has to busily express this instinct by catching and eating poultry. It might be upsetting if the chickens are your own, but if they belong to somebody else, you run the risk of legal trouble or being at war with your neighbour. A habit like this also puts your dog in danger. People do not respond well to dogs eating their animals.  This neighbor was a case in point and was not the most friendly or cooperative of people. He did not have a suitable coop and the chickens were free to roam at will, which they did. This was a rural area without fenced gardens including Windys. His owner had offered the man compensation in the form new chickens and even offered to pay for a suitable coop, but these offers were strongly rebuffed. She was now worried that the neighbor may try to poison or even shoot Windy if he continued.  The first thing Windy was lacking in was adequate walks.                           His new owner had a mobility issue, so things were difficult in that regard. But like any dog Windy had physical energy and it had to be used up or else it would be directed into the wrong areas. He was also had a lack of discipline and an overdose of love, an unhealthy balance. New rules had to be introduced and quick                  Windy’s owner kept chickens herself but the coop was sealed off to any outside predators. Windy was reintroduced to chickens, but this time they were given the upper hand. Windy was obviously kept on a leash and not allowed to touch the chickens. It is time consuming and requires a lot patience to stop this type of behaviour but with persistence it is possible. He also learnt that he has a boundary and very rarely ventures further.    If you want to see Raiders of the Last Chicken Movie we made about Windy then follow the link below to the Facebook page.https://www.facebook.com/ahealingsp/
