  1. What’s racial instinct ?
  2. Once they can contrast home life become a lot easier, no doubt Well done you sir , she looks in fine fettle
  3. She looks in good order there that bitch, what’s the head space like with them ?
  4. Ah your 100% right sir the point been the younger you introduce confrontation or discipline instead of management the deeper it’s embedded, sure he’ll wag his tail at ya after it but he’ll never forget it , especially in your space
  5. When a dog gets a handle on what he was bred for , everything falls into place , little issues fall away because then he wants to fit , thats how a pack works , the physical act of hunting is what makes a pack social , that’s where the bonding takes place, on that same note until he gets that principle he’s a bit all over the place, so when lads are trying to discipline a pup to makes it social, to stop it doing shit , your only promoting misbehaviour because if he can’t engage with you without fear , everything else is much more inviting include stock he just want to express himself physically, collar that and ya have him once ya get him over a certain stage and he’s programmed to a certain activity with you , ya can then lather the shite out of him but ya got to be careful , some of the more primitive breeds are unforgiving and it only shows in the Field ,
  6. Doberman is a great example of that , Official War dog of US Marine Corps during World War ll , Pacific duty in Guam places like that , nerves of steel , Splashed all over the papers and news in the States at the time , everyone wanted one , you can’t breed friendliness into a breed, all your doing is breeding a flaw/weakness Into the Animal , when they stop breeding for purpose and function, you f**k up the genetic pool almost unheard now as a true working animal , I’d hate to see that happen to the Mali
  7. Nothing intelligent going on in my head , just a very curious f****r, park and open coursing is nothing to do with catching , one dog races another up till the hare , hare is usually given enough grass for the hounds to take a turn out of her and that’s usually it , judge decides red or white , the dog that takes first turn wins , 3 points in the bag they don’t want hares caught , why would they , it don’t look good it’s about genetics , hounds in general , fox hounds , beagles , greys , basset hounds , you name them , that list of dogs that hunt/ kill on there own, are less socially engaged with man , generally Collies , labs , springers , setters , mals , pointers , pastoral breeds work with man to catch , all work been a version of hunting , genetically they assimilate humans into their working mindset hounds can tune out the world while running to a mind boggling degree sheep dog can tune out the world while running to a mind boggling degree but still take instruction , that’s the key , Even if you cross two pure bred animals , different breeds , the offspring of the crossing even if there’s a full hound in the mix , will be more socially aware, id rather make life easier for himself in knowing one dog is more social inclined to work with me than another , that’s all mate took me a long time to figure that shit out, one may be faster but the other is trying to second guess me , one is genetically programmed to tune me out and the other to tune me in
  8. I don’t as a rule stock break a lurcher , I introduce it to work, say lamping ,I ingrained that in for a few months so the dog understands the system , It gets the pattern of events that leads to work , boots on , battery ready , smells and sounds of work , all lead to catching rabbits or whatever your hunting , they get it quicker more socially aware , less inclined to deafness out , meeting stock after that isn’t an issue , full hounds are a lot more trigger happy, If it moves chase it , it’s what it’s bred for shape size colour matters f**k all , movement stimulates It right down to toes , the genetics of social engagement listening to me is not there
  9. Id be more inclined to start a lurcher sooner rather than later but less emphasis on breaking to stock , i ignore stock work with a lurcher they seem to gravitate to what they bred for quicker
  10. This mans right , get your pup, invest time and effort in it , what I wouldn’t do is introduce too young , use the first year to engage it totally in you, what your looking for is social engagement with you as a starting point, dogs bred to kill on their own, generally are more aloof and inclined to act on instinct, full hounds and terriers ,as opposed to collies , gun dogs and the like who work specifically through and with their owner , tend to be more biddable, social more inclined to want to please go out and play/ interact with it in the same fields/ areas your going to work in, no point training in the garden and expect the training just to transfer into any environment it doesn't work like that with dogs , every environment is a different mindset , what I would focus on is introducing a state of calm out , where you can just sit down beside a ditch Somewhere and the pup will gravitate to you to the exclusion of everything else , and just sit there and feed it bits and let it chill , ferreting is a great way of starting a pup A pup is forever trying to figure out what to do with its body to make action happen so in ferreting it learns “ if I do f**k all I can make rabbits appear” , bingo you've just introduced a state of calm , not by your physical training but the dog learning from the inside out , it’s not enforced through you so no confusion between you and it whereas some pups can run into trouble if stated on the lamp with other dogs , a frenzy of excitement which always means movement to a dog and if a dog feels that movement makes bunnies appear That is exactly what it will do , it’ll keep running to the exclusion of you it doesn’t have the genetic make up to pander to any training , instinct will rule if you often reference the fact that instincts prevail, but then engage that instinct into interaction with you, ball play tug play , you’ll go a long way in bonding before you introduce the real thing , if ya get me bonding is engaging drive / instinct with you through physical movement once again best of luck
  11. Do ya want me to talk them up , what people believe is up to them ,
  12. X track / coursing , was given a slippy pup by Mallon in Monaghan for getting a hound going for him to make the time , reared it till I found it was no better than a half bred beddy thing I had but with less bottle lads tried dogs same dogs between track and field , if ya know dogs ya know dogs and it wasn’t going to make the grade for anything heavy
  13. Bred a couple of first crosses years ago, no problem getting full hounds bitches then and worked them to see what they were made of , kept an odd one around put them on anything worth running but found them lacking in most departments, f***ing air heads , if the action was 100 yards in front they’d have spotted a leaf blowing 50 yards behind and be hot on its ass , you don’t need a working grey to breed pups that work if the dog is a right one , I only ever saw them as vessel for breeding, cost nothing and had the basic frame for running put it this way I always associate pure bred dogs greys in particular with black type horses (thoroughbreds), their intelligence is in their speed , their not bred to catch, anything , so supple is not a strong point with them, and as with the difference between gypsy horses and thoroughbreds, I always found them a little more distant, a little lacking , run first/think later , don’t get hung up on the speed thing Bud , turning ability , heart, social engagement go a long way , if catching was about speed we’d all have greys , we don’t and it’s for a reason , even a pup out of two half assed lurchers will give you something decent with more stamina and more social engagement , speed kills, only when driving, bottom line , there’s not a single grey, bred to catch anything for the last two hundred years , unlike the desert dog bred solely to catch best of luck with it anyway, I’ve been as honest as I can bud ,take it or leave it
  14. Forget all that socialising bollocks , pups are born social , social is the foundation the expression of physical force /energy /flow / drive is key to bonding with you and everything else, when a dog is stimulated it Has to move , unless trained otherwise, which is another days work look at it this way , dog see dog, dog get energised by sight of other dog , dog is stuck with said energy, to ground this feeling a dog must move , it can’t just do f**k all , if your not the answer , your the problem you correcting the mutt in your space when stimulated, makes everything else much more inviting , because you can’t return his system to neutral if ya get me , which f***ing about with other dogs will the biggest issue by far for every dog is “what do I do with my energy “ answer that from the start and the dog will happily ignore everything else and invest himself in you , YOU CREATE HIS WORLD , that’s the bottom line forget titbits treats any of that shite, don’t bowl food , only feed all food when on walks , getting him to push into you with your left hand on his chest to get food in your right , get him hooked on a tug item Or a ball but I prefer a tug item it gives a great work out 5 mins training is better that 5 hours walking because the dog is in a drive mindset , a state of flow , it reduces his charge and it’s all happening in your space , teach him to bark on command, teach him to down, keep him on a long line while out dont play in the home, in fact ignore the f****r, inside calm outside play only let him express himself energetically through you that’s the key , Dont let other dogs correct him fucks sake your creating a bigger problem you’ll have to solve later your the problem but also the answer , best of luck
  15. We’re all entitled to an opinion, because you don’t agree with it doesn’t mean the individual or his opinion is retarded , The ease in which you throw in , an off the cuff remark about some Irish, who may not agree with your empirical mindset just about sums you up on here , you still living here .? “we were still the best nation in the world when we were still united “ Where the f**k you going with that statement, The word nation doesn’t leave much room for the Scots welsh or Irish

  17. For a start , don’t f**k about with the dog in the house, every environment leaves a dog with an energetic feed back of how he felt the last time he was there, dogs don’t think this shit out, they go back into the same head space , the same energetic mind set it was in the last time there ,mother nature’s shortcut , so if the house was a f***ing play zone as a pup , the script is already typed, I’m not saying you caused it the point I’m making is , inside calm outside play , you don’t want to want to be stimulating a pup/dog in the home because your creating a physical history of how it should act , if ya get me leaving a dog crated with no form of physical movement under stimulation is a sure fire method of f***ing up the whole idea of a crate , it’s always the movement that’s the cure, dogs HAVE to move their bodies in certain ways , call it rituals , rituals defuse tension in the dog , social dogs meet and greet , go through a ritual of sniffing and pissing and it’s all good I’m not against crates but in quiet out of the way places where any stimulation can’t overload the system , get some item the dog wants the bite , get him on a long line in a quiet area and start interacting with the item to such an extend that the f****r is driven nuts , let him tug the item out of your hands, he must win every time*thats important , he must achieve a feeling of success in your space, the same space he normally avoids while out so let him win , he’ll f**k off with it but you got one end of along line 20/30 metres, you can buy camping line in Aldi Lidl cheap out a D clasp on the end , you'll have a line for f**k all , anyway get him doing a circle around you with the item in him mouth , dogs do everything in a circle but you become the midpoint , he’s not running away he’s orbiting you , and that makes you part of the good feeling he’s getting , don’t bother with other dogs or any of that socialising crap, your only encouraging him to leak energy that from now on need focusing on you , hand feed , f**k the Bowl away and make him earn every scrap , teach him the down, feed a lot in the down even out , the down trains a dog what to do with its body instead of trying its normal shit of breaking the place up , he’s more likely to do an action you need to show the f****r there is an alternative to expressing itself in the way it does , but you got to show it , A DOG CANT JUST DO NOTHING , training is just putting a different body action to the same feeling , dogs don’t understand mess , it shits and pees to release pressure, inside calm outside play , the outside work plays into the behaviour at home but you can’t have one without the other , it’s the contrast that seals it in a dogs mind , the dog can contrast and learn of the where to physically express themselves , that’s the key change doesn’t happen overnight , best of luck
  18. Ah, I think we’ve had just about enough of ye thanks , we tried it once and didn’t like it , as I always say
  19. She’s got an honest lookin eye, can’t ask any more than that in their attitude
  20. Not looking at any book bud looking her in the eye , she has work written all over her
  21. Tough as aul boots that one I’d say , not a sign of it on her face , good bitch to take a pup out of
  22. Your on to something there , the state of mind and the urge to eat are connected in the dog so things have to be moving in it’s environment, it included high vibrating dog doesn’t like static situations like a bowl , food can make a dog feel vulnerable makes it feel a little panicky,little fearful , get contact to eat , it would also work on the down but only by luring, then feeding in the down , gives the dog something to do with its energy and that build up gives the dog a focus for it when you whisk your hand in with a mouthful of food , It’s a pain in the ass issue but a lot of these issues don’t just stand on their own it’s in the rest of the behaviour as well , if ya get me
  23. Hand feed the f****r everything, get to the stage where he’s pushing in on your left hand to get the food in your right Won’t happen overnight but what it does is , it give the dog a feeling of overcoming you/something and reduces fear overall He won’t f***ing starve himself, pushing for food builds confidence and gives the dog a sense of achievement, I mechanically use it to speed up bonding in a pup with its owner, it has to tune in to you, to apply physical force If ya get my drift bud
  24. Where have I mentioned anywhere about despising English people or a word about England ?? You’re beyond debating with , you confuse patriotism and bigotry, it’s a privileged position, it takes a bigger man than yourself to look at himself honestly and decide whether to respect another mans homeland or not , and it’s not in ya, tosser my words are aimed at you , not English people or England but I’m sure it be followed by some off cuff remark about the Irish , and none sees that as an issue ?? thats where the problem lies, the tone of privilege is well known to the Scots and Welsh alike , it’s only tossers like yourself canne see it ,
