[Market-farming] rabbit control and dogs

Before you all start training dogs to hunt and kill rabbits, you ought to make sure that you don't have neighbors that raise rabbits, otherwise they will be mighty angry!

I raise rabbits and it never fails that our neighbor lets his dogs loose, especially at night when they start barking at the deer and they will eventually come over here and try to get at my rabbits which are all caged.

I've got one breeding doe that had her hip broken while she was preggers and one doe that about chewed her babie's foot off trying to keep the dogs from getting it.

She's one of the best breeders I've got! Guess what! I told hubby that I was getting a gallon of pepper and putting it around the yard the next time they came into it.

Of course another neighbor shoots any dog that runs loose on his property because they tear up his garden and attack his miniature goats.

Please be responsible.

> 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.

> 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.
