Making sure everything is in order?
Ok, so gonna need some help with this one. Not sure where to start....
We have about an acre and a half fenced in, with chicken coop, a goat house where the little guys are locked up at nigh, boat shed etc on property.
Bowie is getting to the age where he seems to be wanting to take on more "responsibilities"... If that makes sense lol. (8 months) for instance, he wants to put the chickens back in the coop on his own now, and will do so too early in the evening if allowed. Thats not a problem he is learning only to do it when told. If all animals are locked up we will typically sort of make his rounds and check on things, but with no structure to it. Which is ok. No problem there.
I'd like to teach him, as a fun thing for him to do, to go check out the perimeter of the yard, and hit the coop, boat shed, goat pen etc, on command.
Like say after we put the chickens up, and the little goats and stuff, his last duty for the day would be to make one last check of everything in a more structured way to make sure all is in order before going in for the night.
Lol I have no idea what the best way to teach this would be!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
