  6. Ive got a 14 month old JRT bitch. Her behaviour is spot on, she has a half decent recall, and she works spot on. When im out with her and the ferrets she rarely goes more than 50 feet away from me while shes looking for holes or in the bushes and a whistle will bring her back to me. The problem I have is for some reason if i was to leave the garden gate open or take her off lead while im walking around the streets she would just bolt. And i mean no looking back, just one straight line with no stopping her. Do you think this is just with her age? Like i say, put her in a field or a forest and she is spot on, but anything around the houses turns into a fat ginger lad sprinting after a very small dog.
  7. Am generally new to the sport done abit of ratting when I was younger just thought I’d ask for some advice for getting more into it by this I mean tools and equipment tips things like that. I have a keen Russell bitch 11months and was hoping to introduce her in the new season.

  10. Hello everyone, I'm based in West Sussex near Haywards Heath and I'm looking for an experienced ratter to come and help us out with rats around our chicken coop. If anyone could help, please do let me know. Thank you, Joanna
  11. Last February we had only one day on the rats, the shock came that the land was to be sold off, the gamekeeper out of a job. Although it was really sad we would not to see that kind of ratting again, i had to keep my cup half full and just count myself lucky to have been part of it, to see that amount of rats is rare and a massive priviledge, and i had only been part of it all thanks to Bulter from here So when i got a telephone call to say Butler has been contacted and ratters were needed back there...and could i go, Mmmmm let me see I nearly wet my knickers with excitement So it was Bultler, Neil who kindly invited us, Martin, Danny, Millet. And my future husband young Ethan (Son of my future father-in-law Bultler) and myself with out dogs in tow, the youngest 6mths and the eldest 14yrs. The lurchers were a huge miss today, and their absence tinged the day with sadness, we are 3 lurchers and one terrier down this time. RIP, Jazz, Cilla and little Willow, all seasoned ratters who loved it and were dearly missed, they all died last year. And get well soon Rude boy who is still in the vets. Boo tried his best to step up and fill the gap, but he is neither tall enough to see them in the cover as the lurchers did, nor is he that bothered really but he did not shame me too much and accounted for a few. There were some new faces today, a lovely Jacky, and a border...granddaughter of Willow. Plus Peters new pup, who had an absolutely smashing day running around with dead rats as only pups can, she was VERY keen though, once she chased and bit her first she was the most focused of any pup i have seen on a ratting day. And another newbie. Bet you have never seen a miniature daschund dug too....well you have now Satan has balls of steel not afraid of anything or anyone, and got stuck in the whole time.. Peaches oop's sorry meant SATAN again Some sneaky half grown youngsters making a bid for freedom, whilst Keepa was doing her breathing out of her arse impression.. Some of the men accounted for a fair few under foot. And some didnt The best of the rest................. We had to end prematurely after only 4 hours, it must have been an easy -15 degrees with the wind chill and the snow started, we knew it was forcast to be heavy and as i had a 2.5 hour drive home and the lads a 1.5 we thought better safe than sorry. Grahame the previous keeper and his lovely wife Fern were a huge miss today, Grahame with his sense of humour and patience, and Fern with her after ratting tea and cake back at the house. The older i get, the more i hate change. EOD shot...61 rats, not the usual 2-3 hundred we normally get on the first day of the season, but still a respectable number considering the conditions, and the fact Neil is doing too good a job controlling the rats with traps and bait. The lads did a great job breaking through the ground which was like bell metal in most places. I can never thank you all enough from myself and my dogs for the invite's. One day when i win the lottery you will be my full time rat managers Thank you.x.
  12. Had an invitation out on a pest control job recently on a farm where rats had very recently moved in and seemed to be taking over. When we arrived all the signs were there for a good day, but, as with all farms, there were a lot of obstacles along the way, farm machinery, rubbish, tyres and even an old skip. First marks were on an open piece of land that allowed the rats to be dug out, it was a promising start. From there we moved around the farm, each place being very different, some amongst the farm buildings and some in a load of old tyres but rats kept bolting and dogs kept catching. They worked hard for their rats, in some difficult places, not least was an old skip with a family of rats of all sizes living underneath, this called for some smoke, and later the farmer, whose interest and enthusiasm grew as the day went on, helped out by moving it. This always calls for a lot of concentration when the dogs are working with machinery.. The dogs, being just three, were kept on their toes and made some good catches, none of which I really managed to capture, as is often the case with ratting, this was missed in the frenzy of rats running around and joining in with the action! By the end of the day the farmer wanted to know all about these little red & white terriers, that looked so alike; another convert. All being well, we will be back sometime very soon. A few photos:
  13. Got another invite after the last time....a great day in good company and the dogs and everyone worked for these few rats... Soz but it is a longy.... http://youtu.be/WBq0xuf5eVs atb
