I have a mini wiener dog.......well, my wife has a mini wiener dog. Anyways I was wondering what it would take to start him on hunting rabbits or other small game.

:withstupid: :laughing: It would be no different than for a real/full sized dog except that most of the downsized ones are high strung compared to their full sized cousins.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.

I also have a mini daschund. She is a natural. She will hold when I tell her and if I give her the go she will haul ass after jack rabbits. Her size makes her perfect for going in after em also, though I have not let her yet. You do know that the daschund and the mini are originally bred to hunt badgers right? Daschun means "badger dog". If you can get your wifes permission I would say get the daschund trained. I bet she would kick ass.

Oh, being a hound she would have a great nose also. Bet you could teach her to grab Doves for ya also.

I have a buddy whose wife runs mini's in earth dog trials. He even set up a course for them in the yard. She does real well with them. Go to the AKC wbe site and look up earth dog events and go to one, I am sure the pople would be more than willing to help you and your wife.

He retrieves already. I throw the bumper for my lab and he goes for it and brings it back. It's way funny. I hope he is a natural.

If it is still a puppy there is always a chance, an older dog it might be too late. I would get the dog a toy made of rabit fur if you are serious. You might even want to go buy a mouse and sick it after it, that would be a good trainer.
