Looking for a rat terrier who is a proven Ratter. My adopted RT is afraid of Rats and needs a companion who can show him how it is done and inspire him to take on Ratting. If you have a Rat Terrier who is good at Rat Catching please respond.
I can't actually recommend a Rat Terrier breeder or trainer.... apologies. Also because I live in UK I couldn't help with specific details like that anyway.
Rat Terriers do a good job, sure.
But you could keep your options open here, because Jack Russells do very well as rat catchers too. They also kill quite humanely, one shake and the rat is dead. I have seen them in action.
Usually with a rat infestation, you need more than one dog. A small team work better (and very very swiftly!)
