RE: NANFA-- Keeping Largemouths in Aquarium...

If it is a domestic mouse their is little danger, but
I am wondering why you would train your pet dog to do
this. I have a 9 year old west highland white terrier,
and he will chase and kill mice on his own. It is a
strong instinct in most terriers- allowing the animal
to participate in "canned hunts" is beating a dead
horse IMHO.

Even animals trained for Earthdog competitions don't
actually kill the rats they chase after.
