    Kelpies as a stud,

    Nearly all pups will adapt to the family they are living with the pup I've got now sleeps all day not manic or anything like that when not out she is a border collie greyhound from Hancock's and settled into the routine straight away out twice a day all dogs will adapt if given a chance she has a really high prey drive but she is easy to live with at home this is probably the most thought out litter I've seen on here for years good luck with them lads

    I've seen a few plummers ratting they were nice dogs 2 of the plummers had good noses the other one was more of a catch dog it just seemed to know when a rat was going to bolt he had a bit of Lakeland in him had a really nice coat smooth but a bit thicker and coarser than the others I've had my dogs ratting just as good as them with just as good a nose but mine are easier to kennel and quieter at home the lad with the plummers was always out with them trying to tire them out think he got them through Dave platts friend not 100% though

    Pre Season

    I feed dry and raw dry In the summer with the odd bones and chicken thighs and a mixture in the winter gain record breaker one day and beef and lamb mince And bones or a rabbit the next with fat added to it it works for me was always told not to mix the 2 together as raw and dried food digest at different speeds I keep them pretty fit all year round I start increasing the fitness in early August

    David platts

    I've never seen one of d platts dogs working but met a lad that swears by them said they will do anything if you can leave them till at least 2 years of age before starting them and I'm afraid most people won't wait for that long

    Why has Hancock no pups for sale?

    i had a line bred collie grey she had beardie and border in her with a few dogs from hancocks in the breeding she wasnt the best dog ive ever had but always gave 100% i was offered a pup from the same line last year but couldnt take a pup on at the time, he added a dog from mr jones last year and is really happy with the results the pup ive got now is from hancocks as my mate bought her but his dog attacked her a few times and just wouldnt accept her, the thing with hancocks you got what they said they were sally told my mate they werent really socialised but she was fine after 2 days of the kids playing with her
