I just went and bought an English Springer Spaniel puppy.it will be coming home with me in 6 weeks. I also have a mixed herd of 9. I also just got my first registered Nigerian Dwarfs.(previously I had bigger goats) so what I'm wondering is do any of you have any experience introducing a puppy to a herd of small goats successfully. she is meant to be a house dog, but I would like her to be able to share the pasture with the goats when I leave the house. my goats play pretty rough with each other but I'm afraid that the dog would just chase them. I know this breed is not really livestock guardian dog but would it be okay to teach her to stay with the goats. they're supposedly very easily trainable and smart. I just want everybody to get along.how do I do this?
