    The main thing that's always put me off Dutch herders and the like was meeting one in my local wood. I was going to collect my kids from school and the school borders my local wood. The chap and I were chatting about our dogs (his was a Malinois and I had two or three kelpies with me). He was bragging about how amazingly well behaved his dog was...then we got to the side gate to the school. I tied mine up where they waited patiently while his shot into the school grounds and ran around in circles like a nutter, refusing to come back.😂

    Re the kelpie x Patterdales, I remember an article in the Countryman's Weekly in the mid 90s about the benefits of collies as hunting dogs and it mentioned a collie x bedlington.

    yeh neal ,but that dog, was just badly  trained, that could aply to any breed of dog. Dont get wrong a border collie one of easiest breeds of dog to train for general obedience   , prob easier than a kelpie. as you know i had kelpiex collie x grey bitch few years back, now she was dead easy to train, do anything for me, but only me nobody else. her temp was evil though. she rip up any dog she met, i dont mean growl scuffle , she try to kill the other dog, she was 23 in fawn , very strong animal, she was nightmare to take out, she have dogs, and any person who got to close to me, she went for my wife and son in the end, i got her shot, i wouldnt trust her in the vets, i used muzzle her , but she hated it. thats why ive always said on here and other sites, when you get a dog like Buck, who big daft thing, it makes you  realize  what great temp he as, once you owned  nasty twat like that bitch  was. i still say a dutch herder x grey or x lurcher , make great hunting dog, as long as you put proper time in, but you should with any dog, worker or pet  what ever the breed.?

    If I was after a lurcher an was after a herding bred type any of the cross would do me because the straight crosses have become like hens teeth now days to get anything half decent Id make do with what I had I’d not look for negatives in the cross I’d look for positives in the cross that other lurcher types don’t have an go from there. I do like herding xs but  if your after a good clever pot hunting dog an vermin dog that will have a crack at every job a lurcher is expected to do a drop of terrier blood x herding blood is were the real magic seems to happen while retaining good traits from both bloods if the original dogs used were good 

    fair point  with herding type xs , was just thinking , why not try a dutch shepherd , ive seen a great bitch of that breeding, real good bitch, good brain, drive, stamina, not bad pace, most herders  can get over ground quick, put drop sighthound  in the mix , plenty of speed to catch rabbits deff, and enough grit to handle any fox.  the dutch or the mal , would lot more guts in them than any collie, kelpie, beadie,  you get good feet/ coat. i know most people wouldnt try these types , because there not  conventional) enough , lot of people are scared to think outside the box? i know from own experience  with my 1x gsd x grey  Buck, he been my best alround type lurcher ive had in 30 odd years, he took every think i slipped him on  ticked all the boxes fro me deff. just a thought  why we taking about herding xs ?

    Shame  nobody with a decent bitch asked to use Buck. He has lots of good qualities.

    He deff as mate, been good lamp dog, took everything I wanted in the lamp, and good in the day finding stuff,  with his good nose, good pace, stamina, feet/coat, and very powerful animal. But his temp poss been his greatest asset, great with people, kids, dogs, he brill with my grandkids, very gentle with them, he like horse to them is size lol. He 10 in august, might get couple more years out of him, it be a very sad day for me when he goes deff.

Buck great temp, not a nasty dog, I could give bones with him and old bryn, and they were fine, they swap bones after 1/2 hour. He OK with little woody, with bones, but that little shit the more dominant nature of the 2 dogs.he is deff at my property, the boss, but outside away from my property he  different dog, he quite indifferent to people and dogs, Buck just the same anywhere big daft thing lol.

    A cracking kang. The hybrids that are used in the tatra mountains for catching wolves certainly pay the price and you right, each and everyone would happily bite you and anybody else.


    My mate goes to Turkey few times a year, his mrs comes from there. He told me that up in the mountains, the Kangals are big rough buggers, who bite you no prob. These types are bred for work, and not for people outside Turkey, and there few types bred, some bred for fighting, but most are bred  from fighting lines, so they know that the dogs,  will not back down, from any confrontation, more so any wolves. The shepards norm have 3 - 4 Kangals loose with sheep/goats, as they need that many to fight pack  of wolves. The wolves in Turkey, Spain, etc are not as big as the grey wolves =timber wolves, these buggers go up to 14st, where the wolves in Turkey go  8-10st, but pack of 8 soon kill one kangal, so need 3-4 to tackle a packbthatscwhy they put spiked  collars on them. But my mate told me, you won't get many big breeds as strong and healthy a we bred kangal, they all have very powerful bite on them.

    He has sex and burglary convictions and was in Portugal at the same time, no one will believe him as he’s a dirty c**t, but he makes the perfect scapegoat especially if he is a bit simple, the parents were drugging the kids at nigh to go out and overdosed their own daughter, which was why they refused the police permission to take hair samples from the other children at the same time, have no sympathy for the parents they are guilty to there core 😎

    OK, it might be him, but feck me, he got sex convictions, he burglar, and in area. More than anybody else, it swings to him deff. He said it nothing to do with him,  is he still in jail? Let's hope they keep the fecker there. Regards the parents, OK they done wrong by leaving the kids then going out for a meal deff. Me and my wife went to Spain in 84,  with my son, he was 18 month old then. Now every night we stayed in the hotel, had few bottles in the fridge,  we ate out in the day, so just light meal in the apartment,. Just chill on the balcony at night, and could still see our son from his room. Regards this drugging there kids, so they could go out? Well   that 100% wrong, but I bet there few parents, who OK never left there kids on there own, but if there kids aren't sleeping well at night, give them somthing to get them off to sleep,? our lad was not to bad, but some kids can be bloody mightmare to get to sleep, more so strange bed/room. etc. We met another couple with kids, who were struggling to get to sleep, they were knackered, they said they need another holiday to get over that one haha.

    Kill everything in sight cats do 

    Could with couple to kill the fooking rats by me, OK  I've got a bird feeder hanging up in my garden, and the rats come after the fallen seed in the gravel on the floor. But even if didn't feed the birds, that's only once a day in the morning, that's only 1/2 full. The rats would be around anyway as my neighbours got few sheep, alpacas, horses so there be  food about. I've tried every thing, traps are no good as they don't go in them, there nervy, you can see that, the way there quick eat and scarper quick. I did kill few, couple years ago with my 177 air rifle, but you got get them relaxed, to get a head shot, I put few pics up before they were big rats, so wating my time before I even bother to try and shoot them. Poison be very dodgy with dogs about, Buck and little woody  go in the garden. I did think maybe a cat,  but being honest it have to be out there lot of the time to catch them, poss after dark. But with Big Buck he nightmare with cats, he killed few ferals when in the woods, foxes, cats, are in his mind fare game, so I have  be real careful with him in the garden, even though he in a kennel/ run, if seen a cat, he jump a 7-8 ft fence to get at it even now at his age lol. I did read not all cats are good at killing rats, not sure if this is right? , I know they love to kill mice.

    No mate she isn't my first either, but I did have them long enough ago not to appreciate their quirks. Though she lives outdoors, it's bringing one into a family environment that's made all the difference for me. Before, they were just working dogs.

    Don't get me wrong, some things have been emotional, she's no dream dog, but I can really appreciate her and it certainly is educational. 👍

    You  got a male lurcher as well Paul, or just that lurcher bitch. I've never had lurcher inside. I suppose looking back, old Bryn would have made good house dog, he was laid back, and been no prob. Buck would be a pain in the arse in the house,  could never trust him with any food about,  and I wouldn't leave in the house on his own, if you went out to shops etc, he a fookin chewer = wood, had to wire mesh inside his kennel, know he better of outside out of the way, lol.

    That good of a dog to go through the hassle of taking straws ? Must be some animal bird 

    He was  good 1x, good lamping dog, that was his main job really. That gsd added  bit more grit to  the x, than   a collie. But being honest it be waste of time really, as nobody would use the dog anyway, people prefer the  conventional  type lurcher that about today,  they don't think out the box, that's what I think.but we all different as they say.

    I didn't know that Bryn had passed ray rip shame you never took anything from him or buck up to now 

    Yeh mate, he was 14 and getting weak not eating, vet said he get more weak, so said pts then. Yeh it  bloody shame not  getting any pups from him, he deff was great rabbit dog day/night, not many good 1xs about today, same as Buck he been  a good 1x, he caught every thing you slipped on when lamping. He near 10 now, I think he go quick the Bryn. As big dogs go quicker than smaller dogs, if get another dog be  small to mid size, just for mooching in the woods etc, no rush as yet,👍

    What about this cyclist, who until last month was winning men's races, but has taken testosterone suppressants for a year and is now entering women's races, even though he is two minutes faster than the women ?

    Or the guy who went from men's swimming to women's swimming ?

    As far as I'm aware, neither has had any surgery or gender reassignment, apart from the testosterone suppression.

    Should it be allowed, or will it ruin women's sport ?


    Spot on, they should be banned from women's sports,  let's face it if he was Doctor, not many people would want to see him/her, they rather see a man doctor or a woman doctor. These freaks, wants be happy with body there born with, there poor feckers who got cancer, not long to live, would love to be in a healthy body, given the choise.

    Poaching will never stop its the organised shoots and what's left of the hound pack's they will be trying to stop.

    I think the hunts  with fox hounds etc will deff go in the next 10 years, maybe fishing, but shooting will stay. There far to much money rapped up in it. Lurchers and terrier work gone anyway, a farmer carnt  even use a terrier or lurcher to kill a fox, that killing his lambs etc, only a game keeper can kill foxes, that killing his bird's, I was surprised by this myself 🤔

    I dont know about the other breeds but i always feel sorry for Apbt's put in the pressurised day to day constraints of household,family pet dog life its not fair all ways round.

    spot on gnash,  any breed can do damage t a child or young person, just watch average size collie type dog, 23in 40lb thats not over big dog crunch a good size  beef marrow bone , never mind a child's face , bloody hell my big lurcher Buck , cracks them bones and eats the bloody things , he daft as brush with people/ kids and dogs, but he ever tried to bite a person  he do massive damage. i tell what few years back , i told you gnash , about a bloke who got a bulldog= apbt   he thought it was just leggy x staff, but i knew it was  pure pit.  well its temp was ok young dog not switched on yet, and it was playing with  Buck, well this dog no more say 50lb, was bloody strong dog, he was Buck like a bomb grabbing him wrestling etc , Buck was throwing him about, but this young dog  kept keep coming back none stop, it wore Buck out he was fooked lol , but i knew what  bull breeds can do, being brought up with them in the 60s. it only takes a second  and a  any dog can bite and  could kill a child , but a dog like this young pit , a child got no chance , we had staffs some were like apbts of to day leggy agile, but ours never came in the house they were kept in a kennel/ run  out of the way, and thats in my opinion  were dogs should be kept, if you want a good watch dog  get good old type jack x mongrel   stick them out side nobody get by your property ."
