That's still fear, and what I'm saying is that if at some point something happens where for instance your dog feels cornered by a bird that she's afraid of ------ It happens in an instance. They never mean it. To preserve themselves they listen to their instincts. It just happens. Because they've been put in an unnatural situation that goes against the instincts of both species. I'm only trying to point out the flaw in your theory, that's all. Everyone gets to decide for themselves whether or not they want to gamble on this.Lol I knew someone was going to point that out! Heidi isn't terrified of the birds, but she is wise enough to keep her distance. She knows that they hurt so she doesn't wan't anything to do with them. But she doesn't tremble at the sight of them or anything lol.
I've never had to make this decision for myself, yet. But I know I would at least have strict ground rules in place. I'd love to have an inside dog, but never out together in the same room would be a very strict rule. Plus closely supervised if they have access to the cages, even if it's only to keep the birds from being scared. It's an unnatural situation they're put in - stuck in their cage while a dangerous predator lurks outside.
