Then monty python throws Katchpricks 3 seconds of expertise in,id rather own a few moments based in wisdom than a lifetime of katchums parental guidance.

Speaking of parental guidance lol didn't you mention on here more than once that your own son is breeding away from your original stock in both lurchers and terriers. 

Seems junior has more sense than senior and could teach you a thing or two.

Most Americans start their terriers in an artificial scenario which I have never agreed with regardless of age.Pet rats,caged coons ,wooden boxes with a possum.As my father used to say "It's like putt

Does killing rats even make any difference as to how easily a terrier will or wont enter to real quarry?I dont think so.Ive seen terriers that have killed loads of rats and ragged loads of carcasses a

If they're any good you shouldn't have to

I mentioned it,the lurcher cannot cover a cow and the Lakey could not cover the Beddy,the lurcher wants a wank and the Lakey was never suitable,my lad is going the brother and sister route now,id rather he put her to her grandad,his bitch,his choice and the wrong un.

I'd a bitch pup once that was killing large adult rats at 8 weeks old. (she found them herself).I cant see what the benefit of baiting pups with tame rats is though.It seems to be an american thing -trying to have them dug to by 7 months old etc.

Can't see ratting from an early age  making an earthdog any a better working dog  but can't see it doing any harm ,but with all the terriers I've seen ratting has not played any part in there working abilities, it's a different sport altogether. Not knocking the sport but it's a far cry from digging soil, two different terrier types are needed for instance almost any dog will catch a rat give or take, but to go below only a certain type can.  I wouldn't promote young terriers on rats if it's solo purpose was to be a digging dog but if I cought a rat I'm a cage and I had a 4 or 5 month old pup I'd let em have a go no harm would be done but no advantage in my eyes either . So no I would not

i had a russell bitch here few year ago wouldnt bother with rats she would kill them but a half hearted ratter wouldnt rag a dead carcass either  but she was a good wee digging bitch worked into old age

I've said it on here before that the best fox dog I ever had never put her mouth on a fox above ground, had absolutely no interest would take a sniff and walk away.

I wouldn't start em that young personally but I bought home a 10 week old smooth foxterrier. old golden use to catch a rat heroin  the place every now and then. But that little terrier caught 10 the first week she was at home and never looked back. Love self starters.
