  1. line breeding?

    Yes I know Chesney having the right blood surely does help, all I'm trying to say is it takes the right person to be running that blood on properly.
  2. line breeding?

    I don't have a line off terriers. None of my terriers are related. Terrier bitches that are grafters and work like dogs are few and far between. They are there though. Men that have them don't broadcast it. If you want to take a litter out of a bitch that needs to be bred from. You need to put a dog over the bitch that is superior to the bitch. Easy said if you've a bitch that's an out an out grafter. Lines is one thing, without solid bitches, your only taking a chance. When pups are born and gifted out that's when the cream comes to the crop! Some people can't run dogs on and that's it. Simple. Is it a fluke that anything that I've been gifted worked and others didn't? Breeding has a lot to do with it, you can give a wanker the best bred pup and it will amount to nothing.

    I just watched the video and the sabs are obviously blaming the hunt on blocking holes. The sab stated it's very funny every time yous bunch turn up, places close by are blocked. The man said it wasn't the hunt but there's 2 gangs that dig in that area that hasn't got anything do with the hunt. He didn't give any other information. Can't see the point in this thread unless I'm missing something.

    Who's first season pup failed? You sir are not well. What time zone do you work in? Bedtime sounds good. Sorry lads back to topic. 👍
  8. when experienced terrier lads pass away.

    Correct Glynn, yet in moderation with a trained eye makes a big difference, as you know.

    Na mate, just leave it. This could be a good thread. Comparing hounds and stuff, you are well off the mark. Behave yourself 😩

    Wrong thread mate, there's a bushing dog section 👍
  11. Terrier mistakes

    Was in the same predicament myself MG a few seasons back with a dog that I still have to this day. Big sandy place dog had the run around for first half hour then was working away in a spot, we left him over 20mins and went to him, nothing much gets by this dog but before we got in that day everything shifted. He searched the place for easy 45mins, showed, turned back in on his own accord and searched again. He couldn't come onto it again. That and one other time, was the only time that dog has let me down. He's the guts of 9 yr old now so I've no worries about him not doing his job, it's part and parcel of terrierwork sometimes unfortunately and if anyone tells you any different, they're telling lies or not doing enough or not testing there terriers enough. I'm not afraid to tell anyone about it because it is what it is. I've dug him out of the same place from that. But that's not the point. If they're winning more than they're losing you can't be bad to that, unless the ones they're losing is coming common and you know it's that they don't want it enough. I hope that's not the case with your own atb.
  12. Rescue dogs

    Speaking of getting pups that were bred and handed back, my mate had a border/patt x staff/patt bitch about 9yrs ago, she came up from Cork, handy wee bitch. He asked me could he put my Lakeland over her. So she'd 5 pups. I took a dog and a bitch, both never made the grade. He gave his grandad one his sister one and his mate one. His mates one got out of the yard never to be seen again. His granddad still has his. His sisters one she called Marley, because I remember the film "Marley and me" was out at the time. She handed him back to us at 8 months old because he'd the furniture ruined legs eaten of chairs and tables and sofas, she reckoned he was half beaver and stone mad at that! So I gave it to my mate and the dog flew to ground had 14 digs over it first season. Sadly got knocked down on the road outside my mates farm during the summer while they where out exercising in the field beside the lough. Always wondered how he'd of turned out.

    They all work on the same frequency mate, not sure about the range but it would be more than you'd want to be digging.
