    I always have started my pups of 4 and 5 months ferreting with nets giving them the taste and a chew up and genrule mootching and shooting and then 6 months or so on wards on the lamp and still ferreting and mooching just steadily build them up as they get older and also as they show capability a dog that is missing a few who's not quite getting the hang of it I would leave him longer a dog that gets into and keeps killing why not it does them the world of good in my opinion everyone is different but I feel the more you do when their younger the more they learn I don't mean running the guts out of them I just mean getting out showing then the crack

    1st flat band set ordered what you think

    Yes single and £21 type in Google balls of steel Sussex his got loads of sizes in their good price
  8. Just ordered my 1st flat band set from wasp as I seen loads using them so though I would try one do you think this will be a good set up I went for the heavier bands as I've seen most that shoot these use 6 - 9.5mm ammo so I didn't go for the lighter bands as though they might not travel the same I'm still using tubes elastic on my old style catapult so just had 1000 12mm steels delivered so didn't want them to be no good do you reckon this set up will be good for that size ammo I'll attach pictures of the new set and bands ordered and also a pic of my old style I've had for years

    Lesson 1 with the horse whip this morning and a long ish lead 1st sheep he whent to run I smacked him then kept walking to wards the flock 2nd sheep he pulled to go a little bit smacked him then he looked at one run and stuck his ears up so smacked him after that he didn't wanna walk near the flock so I praised him up and carried on calling him toward me and stroaking hum loads for the rest of the walk so he didn't get scared of me no saying it's cured but will continue to walk him round the sheep alot more and hopfully the stick don't have to come back out

    He has abit of everything in him bull grey deerhound whippet bedlingtom and collie bit the collie is so little it wouldn't make him do that like you say I belive it's just the age when I had him out amongst the the sheep he wasn't interested in chasing nothing then still verry young then the farmer had took the sheep in for mating with in that time I've got him doing some work just ferreting and genrule hunting if a back bird moves in a bush his behind it now his put them back out in the field for lambing his changed like he thinks everything that moves he has to chase I've never had this problem with previous dogs I'm no novice but all the other dogs have seen them daily like they do the horses ect and never even looked at them but this one his a little f**ker

    He was fine about a month ago walked him off the lead through stock before I started to show him some work now his hunting and killing his seemed to have changed and then the other day I was walking my lane and he just jumped the fence and was off behind them and today he jumped the gate at home when I was at work and my uncle let him round the yard he whent in the field opposite he said he had such a job to get him but I need to stop it as all the land I hunt is mainly sheep I'm going to try lead walk and a horse whip
