[Market-farming] rabbit control and dogs

Same here, but my dogs tend to find their nest, or whatever it's called.  I see them carrying a young one around every once in a while.  Wow! Those little things sure make a lot of noise!  If you're trying to keep them away from your veggies, there are some commercial sprays out there that will repel rabbits.  If you have a relatively small area, you can sprinkle blood meal around to repel them.

Good Luck

  Is anyone using dogs for control of rabbits?  How does one train a dog to kill the rabbits once the dog finds them?  It seems as most of the dogs I have seen around rabbits just chase them around.  The rabbits seem to have the upper hand.

  I set traps.  I've caught squirrels, mice, a shrew, voles and my husband.  Thankfully he had his boots on. =)  The cat catches her share and the dogs catch more than I see because they sometimes eat them.
