6-7 month introduce him him to rats etc.. Get a foxes tail and he will pick up on the scent of it.. Then it will go from there bud.

the best answer make sure it has all its adult teeth before starting it at rat, 18 - 24 month on charlie altho i start them at 24 month when they have fully matured seen many a good dog facked up cos its been let it to early!!! atb remyd
