Hi all, just wondering who's got experience with deerhound cross lurchers. I have heard they can take longer than other lurchers too mature, mine is nine month old now seems keen as mustard but don't want to rush and ruin it.

He caught a young rabbit other day while just out on a walk we do quite a few miles each day and he runs about and always seems to have some energy to spare so thinking maybe let him have a run on the lamp this is my first lurcher so I am still learning too.

Had a 3/4 grey a few years back, got it for my lad, that started just like any other lurchers, picking up myxi bunnys in summer and started on lamp at 9 month, I thought it may have been down to him being 3/4 grey, but he ended up hitting 33ats and was a pure throw back to the deerhound. I have since spoke to few guys that had lots more experience with them than me an they said most will start like a normal lurcher, and reason most that own this type think they take longer to mature is they ain't give dogs a chance to
