Post your question here:

There are almost annual discussions about catching rodents (mice, rats, racoons, squirrels, etc).

We don't have that issue, so I have no direct experience. But I like the concept of the diving board trap. You fill a bucket with water, put a "diving board" that can't support the mouse, bait it, and when the mouse goes for it they get dumped in the bucket and drown. You can see several versions of this trap on YouTube (and how to make them). No danger to your dog.
