  1. Typicaly big cats lie on their back and rack out an oponates abdomian with its back legs spiling its guts on the ground.
  2. was a time when he was convinced terriers were usleless for catching and we have had some heated discussions And I sent him a couple of videos of the educational kind of terriers on rats haha. he has seen the error of his and we get on fine now. but he gets out and has a go making a living out of it and feeding his familly.
  3. Gouldians do not have down feathers as they come from northern Australia where its hot. Here in the sourhern states of australia we have managered to acclimatise them but housing where there are no draughts is important.
  4. I lost a couple of young birds was wondering why but you may have hit the nail on the head.
  5. We like our runners to hunt up their own so are usually off lead, however when the terriers are working a patch the runners are kept at heel ready to spring the trap.
  6. There is an old vid floating around that shows coyote dogs catching a mountain lion and streaching it out.
  7. first of all know exactly what you want it for not all lurcher is the same. for example here we want dogs that can hunt like a pointer, the speed to make quick catch while being robust enough not to be broked down all the time, enough bottle to take on teeth and tusk without being suicidal. now to find that pup that will fill that roll ofcause starting with parents that are doing the job is number 1. looking at the physical traits of the pups as to wether they match the parents.once at this point it is time to start watching temperment 1 is dont pick the sook if it can stand up for its self wi
  8. Depends what you expose them two at what age but hard work from 12 months on usually get their head in gear.
  9. I believe they are starting a new series.
  10. dogs are smarter than you might give them credit for.
  11. re in Aus its the country side they live in around the mountains and gorges hanging of cliff faces. Of cause their are thousands of the dam things living wild on the flat scrub land country. as far as dogging them their is no real sport in that unless you want to catch them live they are far more of a challange stalking them in the hills with a 22lr. did plenty of that when I was young those youngsters are sweet eating..
  12. The conditions you keep your dogs in has as much to do with flee control as anything else. if they can dig a hole in the dirt or sand and lay around in it expect a big flee problem, I keep mine on concrete and they get to lie around on the lawn in the sun when im home.
  13. BULLX GREYS, BULLYXSTAGS AND BULLYXWHIPPETS COMMON HERE IN aUSSIE AND ARE BASE OF MANY A PIGDOG LINE AS WELL AS DOUBLED UP ON THE SIGHTHOUND SIDE TO MAKE BETTER FOX DOGS. iVE GOT A LOT OF TIME FOR BULLY STAGS AND I AM LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BULLY STAG AT THE MOMENT.
  14. tried to get one of these a few years ago but old mate wanted far to many dollars for a x bred mutt.
  15. They can range from 24 at the shoulder to 28 inches tts they have a broad head and a stronger jaw than most dogs they are very smart but like most wild animals they tend not to just through themselves into every fight unless they thing they have the advantage theres not vet to clean up wounds they might sustane . A cousin of mine was running his pigs dogs and caught a good sow it squealed its head off which is like ringing the dinner bell. dingos came and attached the dogs they were bully stags and boxer cattles the dingos left minus a few of their numbers.
