    GWP

    I have given you my input so don't go saying I won't hear a bad word about them. A lurcher is what you make it I have worked many a cross. I already said if you want a robust hunting type lurcher that will make an outstanding daytime type of dog then a GWP cross would be an excellent choice. It will work in all the usual ways ie day/night but would excel at day work. They aren't for everyone and need someone that is firm in their schooling. I only offered him at stud as there is a lot of interest in the cross, I have never worked a GWP cross but have seen them work and they can tick all the boxes. If anyone wants a stud off the dog to a running dog then they are welcome. People shouldn't buy or breed any dog on a whim. If anyone wants to breed this type of lurcher then I am sure that they will be someone that has looked into the cross and knows what it will bring to the party!

    Thats right a lot of lurchers do point naturally to a degree especially with a bit of collie in the mix. Yes pointer pups will sight point bird wings or feathers on a bit of string, this is actually different to scent pointing.

    I honestly couldn't say but it wouldn't make any difference. Once you let them run a few they would run in any way. A pointer can only point if the game sits tight once the game moves on then so will the dog, if that makes any sense.

    No its the opposite to how a spaniel would work, thats the whole point in a pointer (no pun intended!). They can range out a good distance but within sight (out of gunshot range), if they find they point, which allows you time to get into position etc etc. I personally don't use mine with a gun his primary role is as a falconry dog, but he does find and mark vermin to ground on a lot of commercial shoots at the end of the shooting season.

    GWP

    They are reportedly the most versatile HPR breed out there. At the end of the day any working breed crossed with a sight hound will make a useable animal that will catch game. If you want something with nose, drive and a very robust animal then you wouldn't be disappointed with a GWP cross. The way some people are talking about them ranging off into the sunset shows that they haven't seen a GWP work. They naturally keep in touch with the handler, also they naturally widen their beat when working larger more open ground and naturally reign it in when on tighter in country. They are a very versatile dog and would surprise a lot of you, I'm not saying they would suit everyone but then again nothing does! I only offered him at stud as there is a lot of interest in the cross and people may find it difficult to secure a lining on a sight hound from a pure dog that works.

    Why put any breed on a running dog? what does a collie or a bull add? The GWP cross would be a purpose bred day dog (in my opinion). If you haven't seen GWP's work then you probably wouldn't understand what they would add. They are a hunting machine with bottomless stamina. Basically strength, stamina, robustness, nose, biddability and heart. They would make a great daytime dog for hill type country as has been proven in the past.

    Hooding a bird of prey

    Always introduce the hood before the bird is manned as its much easier to get the hood on whilst the bird is afraid of you. Once they lose their fear of you they will duck and try to dodge the hood etc.
