    Update for everyone! been out twice this week first night still looking around not watching the beam then last rabbi we seen she spots it then game on close one almost picked it but managed to escape but the penny finally dropped. Been out tonight seen a few rabbits only slipped her on one she followed the beam slipped her really good course and had her first catch she’s going from strength to strength and couldn’t be happier gonna take it easy with her now and bring her on gradually got the bug now though would be out every night if it was possible that’s for the advice people worked out well

    Well after all the hard work and challenges training it’s finally paid off took my pup out today ferreting, nice cold morning bit of frost lack of rabbits have made it hard to get the dog around any rabbits but this morning I got her on a nice little warren 6 holes and bolted 2 in the nets dog covered the nets nicely so I thought I’d leave a net off and if one bolted she could run it and I sat her down and within a few moments could hear bumping the dogs ears were pinned up and just as that rabbit bolted the dog was there and snapped it up straight out the hole brought it back live and released it on command! First catch for her one of many I hope absolutely chuffed to bits couldn’t of asked for a better morning or better result.

    Exactly what I watched mate basically did my training with her from that thanks for advice mate il get someone out with me on the dummy or maybe take her out and let her see some rabbits moving on the lamp just to get her attention

    Thanks for the reply mate! She retrieved we’ll day and night I’ve done basics sit stay recall all bang on point now with her can get her to sit stay.throw a dummy and then send her out for it had her out ferreting but due to rabbit population not seen a lot! I’ve tried throwing it short but she can see the dummy so she’s not really using the beam I can throw one out on field walk away with her and then put the lamp on it and she won’t look down beam even walk right up to it and she’s looking everywhere bar the beam it’s frustrating maybe if she seen a rabbit on the move or dummy on move the penny might dropped but in my personal opinion she’s not mature enough to go lamping yet still very puppyish.

    Training on lamp

    Hi all I need of some advice and thought where best to ask! My lurcher pup is coming on well with her basic training a little head strong but all in all coming on very well only thing I seem to be struggling with is getting her used to the beam I’ve had her out with a rabbit skin dummy with reflective tape on it casting the dummy out and using the beam for her to see. Doing this hoping she will run down the beam and pick the dummy but she won’t look down the beam at all and the odd time when she does she won’t repeat it! She 9 months old and probably been doing it for 2 weeks not every night but regular still nothing any advice??

    Pups first day out

    Yeah I can’t see the harm really think it will be a good learning curve for her few times out the penny should drop

    Pups first day out

    Hi everyone I’m off ferreting to new spot in a couple of weeks plenty of rabbits open ground, now the question is do I bring my pup along? I’m in two minds I don’t want to feel like I’m rushing her but also feel like it will do her some good she has seen a few bolters out and about and she is steady with ferrets good with stock and basic obedience isn’t to bad! Also there will be two of us which allows me to focus on her a little more. What’s your thoughts and advice on this? Thanks in advance
