    Absolutely get a ratter type dog. They will really go after the critters. Just make sure they leave the chickens alone...

    I had some West Highland White Terriers that were superb ratters...also had a doxy cross that was awesome. Gracie, my English Shepherd is just as good, but she's bigger so she can't fit in all the little paces they could get in.

    no little dogs. I don't let dogs in the house and the coyotes would eat them . I need more livestock guardians. I'm just looking for free ones. Lol

    Mine didn't stay in the house - but I did have a nice secure pen for them. They did justify their existence by meeting/exceeding their weight in dead rats, lol!
