Try to loose the collar when You feels she is ready.

What makes you say this?
 
Collars  can Kill.... :thumbs:  i dont work mine ever with one, in the pre ban days...... the only collar we used was a very small  up the neck and tight behind the ear jobby.
 
I have seen many whippet types wearing those triple strap collars...... why :hmm:   a fashoin fad :icon_eek:
Like wise i dont turn horses out with head collars on........... experience taught me such :yes:
I know blokes who've ran dogs collared up for 45 years and never had a collar related accident.

I like running dogs with a collar on. Just personal preference.
 
I would rather we  stuck on topic ............ that can be debated another time :D

And I'm sure the OP would rather make his own mind up about wether or not to run his dog with a collar on :yes:

Firstly Sesku,. your young jukel looks real nice,...just my type... :thumbs: 

 

 

I've always kept such beasts,.and in truth, some of them have been real strange beasts.. :blink:  

Personaly,.I class a dog as being a genuine cur,.not solely due to its ancestors,.but more so by the way it behaves,.hunts, mouches, etc...

As an aside,..I would wish all Hunting Life members a good festive Xmas,.and of course a great New Year... :toast: 

 

 All the best, Phil.

only reason i run her with a collar is she very young and i want her to run the easiest bunnies so i only slip her when they run in the direction that gives her the best chance of catching ...confidence is high at the minute not missing many at all ..but we are sometimes walking a long way for a couple of carefully selected rabbits ...don't fancy a coursing style slip leads ..far too expensive for this lad ..lol

Your either a lover or a hater of the cur x ... there never seems to be a middle road when it comes to them but they suit me whereas others wouldn't give my dog a kennel lol..like Phil says it's no good having a tractor to go racing at Brands Hatch and obviously no good having a Formula 1 car to work on a farm..right tool for the right job. Simple as that ")

The old leggy collie type,don't attract too much attention do they,;)
Nice looking dog.

Was the cur name used to differate between the shepherds and drovers dogs? Years ago.
