I've never done it, but I do have a dvd that is all about doing it, with lots of action. It's most effective during the denning season, for obvious reasons. They don't use just your ordinary house dog, and they usually use a pair of dogs.
It's pretty amazing watching dogs work the coyotes, and eventually luring the coyotes back to the handler/shooter. I would like to see it done first hand, maybe some day.

My wife just got a new yorkie puppy that poops all over the house so I might be able to tell you if I can get it out of the house, and I might just let the coyote win!

I have seen alot of stories in the paper about people that have lost little ( one flusher dogs ) to coyotes so I guese it makes sence that a small dog that is pretty smart could come in real handy for hunting. a dog that listens good would be the key I bet. The article I reed was in " fish fur & game".It said that in the winter you want a small dog and in the denning season you want a big dog to intimidate a breeding pair with pups. the smaller dog seam to be more effective, becouse the dinner factor how you really get their attention.
