You shouldn't really have any problem so long as you don't leave your dog alone with the animals.

As a child I had hampsters, mice, cats, birds and dogs all in the same home at the same time and we had no problems.
The dogs were used to the other animals and all the small animals except the cats were kept in cages and only brought out under supervision.

Do Retrievers share good chemistry with rodents? :p I'll be pleasure watching Beagle, Labs, Dashounds chasing Rabbits in rooms of our houses. But I fear the life of poor Hamster or Rabbit!!

Pennypup, I'm considering keeping an African Macaw, that big blue-red parrots in home. Have you tried your hands in petting them?

I've never had a Macaw, but I have had budgies, canarys, and a variety of abandonded wild birds. I had a beagle, a dalmatian and a shepherd x lab mix and they never bothered with them.

You just have to make sure the dogs know that you are the boss and you will not tollerate the dogs tormenting the other animals.

Check out this video of a lab puppy playing with a macaw!
