    @ Wheelistically – I definately agree the terriers would have been used to dig into the warrens but I thought I’d just add that when my dad was young (which I should mention was not really that long ago, late 60’s – 70’s) he would go ‘rabbiting’ with ferrets (i.e. stick them down one hole to chase the rabbits out the other end into a wheat bag).

    I wonder if these rabbiters would do that too? Or if that was the job of the terriers back then?

    @Viewoftheworld: IMHO, it looks to me like five Greyhounds and five terriers (Possibly Jack Russells although I’ll appreciate any further insight on this). ‘Hounds would be good for the chase (and strangle/shake their prey as opposed to mauling it, which is of benefit to the "Rabbiter") – no doubt the terriers would be used for digging their way into the mouths of warrens, should the rabbits try to escape underground.

    Interesting collection of dogs. Is there any information on breeds in the photo?
