Deerhound Cross

Recommended Posts


In my opinion there only slow to start due to owners holding them back due to the myths of them taking a while to mature if the dogs out plenty there like any other lurcher, the more stuff they see at a young age the better. I've just took on a bitch that a mate bred it's not seen much and is nearly 3 and it's not upto much at all, picking and choosing runs etc. A had the fullbrother out a different litter an he was doing it from 10 month but he was sadly pts in January he would of been 6 last month

Why the 2 or 3 diffrwnt types in runs? Is it different jobs. Or they all get shot at being allround lurchers, genuine question?

I suppose what other breeds in the mix make a difference, his sire was a deer/grey 28 tts but his dam was bought as a deer/ grey x whippet little 21tts bitch an absolute demon worker. Mine is 23tts so he's not a big dog really.

I've ran these all my life and like gaffer says they do take there time mature,they could act like pups till they are 3 but they will still kill and run from 10mth old on rabbits but there legs are still all over like a pup.just take your time with it and let it do what it does while you are out with it and it will learn as it matures.atb

he does still have puppy legs at times, we get out early mornings most days and see all sorts he has started trying to stalk rabbits rather than just bombing after them you can see he's trying to figure out best way to catch them. I took him out for a little look on lamp last night dint see anything apart from a hedgehog which I didn't see but he did so that shows he's looking down beam, I will keep him active and let him show me [BANNED TEXT] he's ready.

As been said, everybody does things different. Doing a lot more than rabbits at 10 month, retrieving of course. 😀 if you put the hours in and are committed to the dog they'll be ready to start sooner than you think. Size don't matter in the dog world

There's the dog there he was no small dog. Dog was started at 10 month and gave 100% all the time. R.i.p Leo 481b2dd9-ff5d-417c-ba92-fa2c988bc4a4_zps
