    Chase you were wrong by putting your dog outside. ESPECIALLY if it
    were an inside dog to begin with. I have always had my dogs in the
    same house and room with my birds. I don't let them out together, but
    the birds are ok in the cages while the dogs are around. I have had
    only labrador retrievers.....bird dogs.....and they all live in
    harmony. It takes patience. Don't punish your dog for something YOU
    did by bringing a bird home. I think you need human training.
