Nuisance Animal Removal

Nuisance Animal Removal is a natural behavior for Jack Russells and other working breeds of terriers! We have been breeding our terriers to work for 15 years and hunt them regularly in tight spaces.

If you are looking for a dog to assist you with pest issues, you have come to the right place. Whether you have squirrels in your attic, mice in the cupboards, groundhogs tearing down your barn or destroying your horse pastures, a Fox in the hen house, or Raccoons in your corn crib, these dogs will take care of it for you. Whether you are looking for your own personal pest removal dog or one for your business, we can provide it for you. Many of our terriers are used as falconry dogs as well. Whether you do falconry as a sport or as an abatement career, we have what you need.

We are also equipped to train your puppy to detect termites and Bed bugs, saving your clients thousands of dollars in damage and lost business.

Terriers are excellent for working in odd spaces. They can go where people and other dogs have a hard time getting to.
