As a side note, you do realize that you actually don't want a rabbit dog to catch the rabbit? You want it to find one, chase it, and since rabbits always circle back, you hear where your dog is and try and get yourself in a position to be between the bunny and the dog. Then you blast it and reward the dog for doing what he was supposed to. Some puppies do maul the rabbit if they catch it, but you'll have to cure it of that habit quick.
