As you said every opinion differs!i do find it all depends on the dog themselves!maturity levels and just there all round keeness and confidence!Fitness is key to! I think the biggest thing is 'men with terriers' can ruin a good bred dog at a young age thinking that there breeding is good and so it means they can do work at any age!And obviously its never the mans fault and always the dog!

I started taking my jack russell out at about 8 months. For the most part she just enjoyed running with my mates dogs while they worked. Now she gets amongst it and is a canny little ratter herself. She can get bored and distracted easy after a few hours though but she gets better with every week and can mark holes for rabbits.

      My 8 year old Dog has been Diagnosed with Degenerative Disk Disease. Anyone had experience of this and how did your dogs do. Vet said my dog will not be the same.

      hope its ok to add these here fox nets made with 1.1cross braided nylon on 2" brass rings  double knotted these nets are made to last  and are 7ft6 long they are long enough for single or double pegs [2mm draw cords to be add when you let me know if it single or double you want] plenty people off this site have had nets from me and will vouch for my nets [ 4ft rabbit nets also available]
