We also have a dog who has been killing our chooks and won't listen to us, but i resently went on a web site called, www.petproblems.com.au and it said that you need to become the leader.
But the dog is only doing what it would do in the wild. Sometimes they are only trying to get attention, they try a behaviour and if you give them attention they will do it again. The dog might be hungry or might want some exitement.
Observe in the way in which you interact with the dog, think like a dog. some of the leadership skills are:
Lead the way through life
Eating determined by you
Attention seeking by your terms
Demand comands be obeyed
if you don't know what i'm talking about, just go on the website.
but you can teach them basic commands like sit, stay, call out there names angrily when their being bad and nicely when their being good.
when they do kill or be bad, tell them of straight away and lock them up and don't give them attention for a period of time.
but most of all you have to make them respect you.
