Australian Cattle Dogs
I have to tell you this is probably the smartest, easiest dog to train I have ever had, and we've had collies. She is very sweet and gentle with us but very protective of us as well. She has a very vicious bark and snarl at anyone who comes to the house until she realizes that we are okay with them then she calms right down. She really has that herding instinct, even around the alpacas. They say they need two hours of vigorous exersize every day. That is true. They are very active, high energy dogs. They need either the physical activity or the mental stimulation of learning new things, which they pick up very quickly. They do not like to be bored or left alone for long periods. If you have children that like to play outside, this dog would be perfect, because they are also very protective and extremely loyal. They do like to chase small animals so I don't know how they would be around the chickens. But I think that it would be easy to train to not chase chickens.
