I am on the verge of purchasing a couple of ferrets, but do not know which sex I should be obtaining. I would like ferrets that are easygoing and, of course, ones that will bolt rabbits. Do you have any suggestions as to which I should choose?
I am intending to buy a gundog puppy for rough-shooting. Can you advise me who to approach for the information about the relevance of hip and eye scores? I also don't understand technical terms, such as FTCh, FTW, GWT winner and D/DC?

I read that it is unlawful to deliberately catch, kill or take wild polecats. I am confused as I think the 1981 Wildlife & Countryside Act provides limited protection for polecats in Schedule 6? Please can you clarify this?
