I became the owner of a two-year-old Australian Shepherd this past week. I presently have a two-year-old Chocolate Lab and Chickens and Ducks. The dog's name is Shep. I am 69 and I walk daily with my present Lab and I have started walking Shep with us.
1. He wants to bite and jump. How do I prevent him from biting and jumping up on me?
2. I have chickens and ducks. The fowl run loose in my back yard. My back yard is fenced in. He went after my chickens when I was not looking. Brought one in the house the other night. Also got ahold of a couple of chickens. I have to watch him with the chickens and ducks.
What can I do to solve these issues? I have had Labs in the past. My present Lab is good-natured and easy to get along with. I want my experience with Shep to work out.
