    I don't think the noise is a problem once they are used to it, it all depends how the dog acts toward them. If he acts too interested, sees them as prey or toy, they pick that up.

    The only "humane" (I dont think it is) trap I had success with catching rats was a big 1.2m marten trap, with 2 doors. Rats are clever, going into a dead end isn't something they do easily.
