I believe your answer to the post above yours was quite hasty. I came on here looking for some answers to help train a dog to ignore chickens... And have found very little in the way of solutions other than one or two posts.
So, now that I've vented about that, I feel that I should tell you that your reaction to the previous post was quite overblown. The choice of words was poor, yes, but the term "uneducated" does in NO WAY infer "unintelligent". I believe what that person meant to say was that these incredibly well-trained dogs were trained by farmers with no FORMAL education, but were highly intelligent and therefore able to train their dogs better than some with quote-un-quote "higher education."
So before you jump on your high horse about all the insults, consider the intention of the author's words. Especially since in your haste to answer, it makes you look rather foolish.
And also, simply because one has their Bachelor's doesn't make them suddenly hyper-intellegent, either. It just means they did their four years and managed to graduate. Some of the smartest people I've ever met were barely able to finish grade school, and some of the stupidest have been those with graduate degrees.
