They make a thing called an x pen. It may work in your situation. You can make a area for the birds and use the x pen to surround them but you still will have to supervise the dog at all times.

You'll be fine. Just keep a close eye out and close the door to your bird cage when you aren't around. We have 3 dogs, one being 150 lb English Mastiff and none of them show any interest in my birds at all.

Exactly. Not ALL dogs are bird killers. You'll just have to see how it goes! Good luck w/ your new puppy! That's exciting.

oh sky i dont want to think of any dog as a "killer" however there are dogs whose specific breed is to "seek ..or stalk...or outright hunt" something...and its these particular breeds that more caution needs to be given...including "protective" breeds.

a LOT however, isnt only about their instinct which is soooo overpowering and "INSTANT AND REACTIVE" , to them, its also about good discipline training with them as well...

I have a 3 year old English Springer Spaniel and she is trained quite nicely and listens pretty well and I would not trust her as far as I could throw he around a loose Bob.

Whenever Bob is out for his time she is crated because I cannot possible ask her to betray her instincts and she couldn't if she tried.

She does not go near the cage because I have trained her not to and she does real well with that.

If I were bringing a puppy in I would not trust it at all until it is trained and proves it could be trusted. Its a puppy and they are curious and they do not know any better.

Well, that is my take on it but other folks may have different approaches.

i think thats excellent input tess...it is not reasonable to expect them to control a deep primorial instinct...

My 180 pound Great Dane doesn't even know Tiki is here.... Lol! and JoJo, our cockatiel isn't fazed by any of our dogs... our hunting dog (half Beagle) doesn't mess with the birds either.
But they are never left alone with any of the dogs because primal instinct may very well take over at the most inopportune time!

Hi Katie,

I hope that you and your family will bear all this advice in mind and think very carefully about how you will keep your bird safe and stress-free, if you also have this new puppy.

I know that plenty of people seem to cope very well with a wide selection of pets ~ and I am no expert on this subject ~ I just think that if it is going to work ~ for you, your family and your pets ~ then you will all need to do a lot of thinking and planning.

Good luck smile
