IL TELL YOU WHAT MAKES A GOOD LAMPING DOG A GOOD LAMPSMAN
IVE RUN COLLIE CROSS/ LURCHERS /SALUKI FOR THE LAST 25YRS AND FOUND ALL DO THE JOB IF GIVEN A DECENT CHANCE BUT MY PREFERENCE IS SALUKI.THE MOTHER TO MY SALUKI WAS LAMPING AND CATCHING AT 7 MONTHS AND HASN'T STOPPED SINCE I THINK THEVE JUST GOT SO MUCH MORE STAMINA .

thats spot on :thumbs: u can make it as hard 4 ur dog or as easy 4 ur dog.ur the lamper. at the end off the day ur a team. he cant do it without u. and u cant do it with out him.i started giving my deerhound /greyhound/beddy/wippet/grey stopped slips 10 yards from hedge rows she got fed up after a while /[my folt] not the dogs foult4 not wanting to chase them ner the hedges.ever body say /[collies] dont try to brainy obviously they use the dogs brain 4 the rong thing making it think it cant catch it .atb look up [any tipe off lurcher]

to me a lamping dog must have these attributes...


stamina
guts
brains
skill
speed
stength



i have recently seen dogs of collie blood, that are well established rabbit dogs only go for rabbits that in there head they think they can catch, ie, sitting out and squatters, personally this isnt my cup of tea, and if anythink there is abit to much brain there for its own good, a good lamping dog should try for every rabbit you send it out at, or anythin you choose to lamp, as there is always a chance that the quarry will panick with a good pressure on it, and jolt into feild and be caught off a hedge row! sp out of a lamping dog i would like a good drive to please and the willingness to try is always thing i look for.


atb dfk

so why have u put brains for. coes it dont sound like u think it a good thing in a lurcher :icon_eek:

i probably wouldnt have mentioned this cross until i seen shephounds dog run rabbits on the lamp.
at the time he wasnt fully fit but ran excellent.

i remember it alright pal a bloody good night ,its a pity that wheaten cross didnt make the grade on foxes when i had him but shephound was glad to take him for bunnies and by god he got some big bags with him.First night i gave him to him he had 22 so just goes to show wheaten crosses arent just big quarry dogs.That small black lurcher you had that night really opened my eyes aswell ,id never seen a lurcher work that way before ,top class pal

yeah your right maye my beddy wip col grey is my first lurcher so i still have a lot to learn. at the end of last season most rabits were shy and near hedges and i kept slipping her on them and she started to get sick. think in september ill start her back on easy ones to get her going again as at the start and middle of last season i was getting 40 or 50 a week with her.

All the best lampers Ive had or seen (and Im talking about volumes of work on all quarry, not the odd night out) were lurcher x lurcher no first crossers can match them..


agreed
