    I have about a half acre. I have a pen setup and ready to go and will be starting my pig raising soon.

    I have a couple of dogs, big Labradors. I know they are both social animals, but does anyone know how they get along?

    When I get the piglet should I introduce it to the dogs? Should I expose them to the piglet constantly?

    I take my dog with me when I do chores but I never introduced them.

    I did introduce my Dutch Shepard to the sheep, (on a lead ;)) because she is a herd dog. So I guess it would come down to the dog and the farm animal.

    I would introduce them when the pig is small but keep them apart till it's larger. Pigs will get big enough to do some serious damage to your dogs.
