As Bobtheferret said, they simply know better than us so, as a result, I wouldn't want to go ferreting without a dog. I no longer have any ferrets, as the farms I worked on have gradually been covered in concrete, but when I did I caught a lot more with my prick-eared sheepdogs. If it was a choice between dog or nets I'd choose dog every time: you may not catch quite as many but it's a lot more fun.

To be completely honest, the only reason I had ferrets was to give the dogs a more definite "job" whereas now they're "just" ( for want of a better word ) bushing and mooching dogs.

You lads have some really nice working dogs this post shows it.neils looks switched on👍but I’d be keen to see if there are any guys in Australia that use dogs for ferreting (I know sirblessed does) but I would be interested to see if anyone else does

These are relo's of sirblessed dogs,we live 500k's apart,shows how few good ferreting dogs in OZ there are.Lost the black and white bitch to a grass seed in the lung at 2years,gutted.

I take my Spaniel with me she is trained to the Gun but not much good for a lot else but I enjoy her company , if you net up well and have a locater a dog is not really  needed  saying that though I could watch Katchums  lad's Plummer all day long .

I think a lot of false marking comes from shouting dog over to holes and pointing to holes for them to go to. I have always found the dog will work the holes occupied itself let the dog do it's own thing. 

I never give mine any commands or direction,as you say let them do their thing, especially dogs line bred for the job.

I agree with that , my dog is not the best at marking  especially  when there is another dog there and if I send her to a hole she will start digging just to please me [I think ] but if left alone she will look at hole and sit , I think this stems from Trapping or Snaring because when I have made a catch in a Trap or Snare  she will sit about 6 feet away and look
