Thanks for the compliment. My dog is a Jack Russell. She poses as a gangster (as in the picture) to scare off would be issues. But she is a sweetheart and a good helper.

You let the dog go into the crawl spaces first? Just open and they run
in just like that?

What about rattlers ?

I open up the whole and shine my light in first. I'm more concern about a raccoon.
Usually around here it's just going to be vermin.

Dogs at job sites !
Don't get wrong I love dogs I got 2.
I had a house we wired and the dude doing the insulation had to have his dog on site(jack Russell) loved steeling lunch from everyone. Pissed my partner off a tad !!
When I pull my home runs back to the panel I number them and on a piece of cardboard put the number and what that circuit includes.
The insulation dude pulled my cardboard down threw it down , the dog grabbed it and shredded it beyond any chance of recognition .
This burned my a$$ !!
Cost me about two hrs in time tracking down circuits.
he didn't want his dog with him after he got the bill for tracking down my circuits.
Like I said I love dogs, but not at work.
Bad enough dealing with the HO,s ankle biting little bast..ds.

Jack Russell?

They are good rat dogs-- I have a fox terrier and I can't keep her nose out of the ground. BTW a fox terrier won the Westminster show this year-- dog named sky-- my dog looks nothing like that

When I was younger working on custom log homes, a guy also had his dog. One day after they had finished poring a finished floor slab for a large custom home, out comes wrenie running crazy eights all over the place! The general wasn't too happy but we all loved the dog.
I only bring the dog on occasion. I have never brought her on a big jobsite. I don't think it would be safe. Plus there are a lot of coyotes out here so if I can't see her she could be lunch.
There are just certain small jobs I have been able to take her

My dog is not a rat! My dog only comes when I do a rewire in the crawl space under a house. There are no other trades but me. Is that a problem?
