  1. Good looking hound, what size and weight is she? was thinking for an all rounder on the lamp in about 4/5 years when I semi retire. Regards
  2. For big dogs these guys go, and they look pretty focused.
  3. Came ready made, only problem is, it only takes one dog.
  4. Good looking hound, have a lurcher to lurcher very similar be 5 next year, what breeding is he mate?
  5. If he has the shits it's likely his body is rejecting something and flushing his system with fluids, there's lots of good and bad diets out there but I don't think that's the issue, it's more likely you need to remove some ingredients. I eat more than my share of bad food but still have good shits ( king Kong's finger) however if I get the shits it's usually something specific that disagrees or a stomach bug. Atb
  6. He may be intolerant to grain, there's a lot of grain free options out there from barf to dry.
  7. Good luck to you, looks like an Interesting cross, I have seen footage of Maximus Decimus Meridius using them single handed on the Celts.
  8. I think some folk just castrate dogs because they always have or its the first thing they see on the internet or advice from uninformed others. Alternatively; If castrating doesn't work, take a leg off so he can't catch you, if that doesn't work take an eye so he can't judge the distance of his bite, if that don't work take his canines out. and if all else fails train it.
  9. Not a natural swimmer but looked the part today.
  10. If I see someone going past with a dog on a lead, even tho I'm aware mine is very submissive, I will put mine on his lead, it's due to the uncertainty of the other Dog and courtesy imo, also if my dog is on its lead and another dog is coming in for a fight I DO NOT know the other dog and I WILL assume the worst for mine knowing he's submissive and will de-escalate the situation in a way the other owner will not appreciate. I think it's only right to look after the welfare of your dog, even if the other dog is just going to mouth it, it's not good for the confidence of the dog. Atb
  11. Something's got to give eventually, surely at these extortionate prices of mixed breeds going for 2000 only the rich are buying them or its peddlers selling the puppies to peddlers so they can peddle future generations, I dare not image how often some of the bitches are getting bred and I reckon it's got potential to price out the lurcher community. I'm not in any lurcher circles except this group and hope I don't get priced out of future purchases. The government and antis are potentially not the worry but people's wallets.
  12. Don't let him ruin another outing or you can lose patience, take the buggar back to basics, back on his lead, recall training on long lead with treats etc, don't matter if he loses fitness it's summer. Atb
  13. It's you that's the problem then, you keeping walking off when he's trying to take you home
  14. Hopefully a phase, till then as above or take some decent sausage or treats out to get back into the swing of things. Dogs can be funny f*****s Good luck
  15. Grey,whip,collie,deer,bull 27tts,27kg
  16. Seen a spray on plaster option called aqueous spray on plaster, has anybody got any experience with it, probably won't survive a run but maybe headed in the right direction. Atb
  17. Some longer sleeves and in camo and your Sorted!
  18. Try Fabric tape or just super glue the vet wrap. Atb
  19. I'm a jacker aswell because I don't always slip the dog and pick my runs
  20. If on a short course and a rabbit has made the hedge he won't pile in aimless but he'll monitor the hedge for a chance encounter for a short period, but if a rabbit gives him a good course it puts his blood up more and he's more likely to take risks and push through hedges. Only seen him pull up once but that was through sheer exhaustion when him and the quarry where so slow I probably could to join in, that's a worry though, with heat injury and the like. I believe confidence grows through the years and you need to give multiple chances or maybe look at alternative training as I've found I am to blame for a fair bit, and also cause and effect will play a part, for example confidence building when younger, hunting experience gained, injuries acquired that develop negative responses etc. My dog is a family dog (a good one at that) aswell as working and if I did get rid of him for a flaw it doesn't guarantee the next one will be a hunting God, and a little brain can help avoid the vets especially when this line of work is so prone to injury as it is, and maybe if the dog don't like hunting rats then hunt rabbits.
  21. For rabbits, that cross sounds decent for any land, day and night, plenty of sight hound and the other Xs are pretty quick with wind to boot, how much brain do they need and why?, could breeding and instinct not work? if that's the type of dog you want then maybe it's just a bit of enquiring on Dam and Sire For working background etc.
  22. Sounds mental but if you start barking and getting excited when someone comes to door most dogs will copy, just praise him when he does it, just beware if he does do it, will you be popular with the neighbors, if you don't want to start the trend yourself, borrow a dog that will do it for you, a lot of dogs will follow the pack.
  23. My dog is soft as sh.te and submissive to other dogs, and I wouldn't swap him, absolutely brilliant around my little one (absolute necessity) not a bad bone in his body, has his faults but great for edibles. Get him round some civilised dogs to build his confidence and avoid dickhead dogs and owners, ATB.
