    Re: Dogs and birds?

    I have a large breed dog, and im of the same mind of better safe than sorry. She is a lovely well behaved dog that wouldnt harm a fly, BUT shes huge, clumsy and loves other animals of all descriptions! It would be too easy for her to acidentally hurt one of my birds, i did try having her and the parrotlet out together but i wasnt comfortable with it in the end, it seems to be when the birds take flight that even the most well trained dogs can get a kick in of their prey drive...or just get excited and want to play! But i'd never forgive myself if she killed a bird.
    she and the birds love having a natter through the bars though! they actually come down to see her but shes learnt not to get too close or they try and peck her nose!!

    Are you asking for advice or just letting us know how you deal with owning both a bird and a dog?? Sorry, it's unclear to me.

    Look up his breed on the comp. Some dogs are breed for hunting. We have a dog named Happy. He is a bird hunter. He already killed quit a few birds, including my budgie named lemony.
