The author takes a commonsense approach to modern terrier work that is based on the experience of terriermen who between them have been working earth dogs for several decades. This is an ideal introduction for anyone wishing to work their dog. Rabbiting, ratting, mink and fox hunting, as well as badger digging are all covered. The author emphasises the need to work within the current legislation at all times. Topics covered include: getting started, choosing a puppy, vital equipment, maintaining working qualities in the dogs.
