    First x bull ... preban

    For a good all round lamping mooching lurcher a half cross is a good cross. BUT as downsouth said the bull line must be decent to start with and not just any old greyhound used. All my half crosses were steady with ferrets and all stock including cats unless told otherwise. It’s up to the owner to spot when the dog needs a break though as all mine would run until they dropped . Easy to train eager to please but a bad reputation in a lot of people’s eyes. I run a reverse 5/8 now and he ll retrieve rabbits live to hand and can run for his cross. I only found them lacking the gears on daytime fox when they had to make the ground up, I m talking long slips mind.
  4. I would nt know Einstein as I work the dogs within the law but if I did I would nt be putting it on an open forum
  5. So people with bull or Wheaton crosses hang around fox and badger earths . Ffs .

    Would you breed from a jacker?

    Dilly has a good point . A lad once said to me , your a jammy txxt you always seem to pick the pups that work. They still after all these years think they are having bad luck picking pups

    Terrier mistakes

    Only you can make the decision mate. I had a strong black dog who I would be confident of putting anywhere diggable and if he would stop end it then you d dig him . Good digs to . But if he had something he could nt keep up with on a loop in a rangey place he just could nt work it out and come out. You had to pick him up re enter him in a different part of the earth and hopefully he d find again. I gave him away and he was highly rated where he went and used at stud. I advised them not to use him but they ignored the advice as they had dug some stuff with him. But that was nt the point , the dogs nose and finding ability was poor. I suppose it depends what else you have in the kennel and your own standards. If you ve had loads of digging over the dog and it’s only happened a few times then that’s digging , you don t get em all. If you know the dogs walking cos he ain’t having his own way then that s a different story.

    high strung pup

    So you walk to an area loose the terrier presumably with a location collar on. You walk endlessly round the wood or whatever area you are in. After spending all that time searching you get a bleep on the locator box to find the earth is under a huge rock seam or slab. You only keep dogs that stay till dug . So then what ?
  12. It s good that there s still younger lads coming through , but I watched a few lads out and noticed a few things that made me cringe . Maybe I’m set in my ways to much. First was dog in then box was on instantly. What’s the rush ? If the dogs worth it’s salt it s not going anywhere , give the dog plenty time. Digging on a bank and throwing the spoil down hill. Easier to back fill throwing it up hill. Last was scruffing dogs. It s my pet hate. The dogs worked for let’s say an hour or 2 or more. Then break through , scruff the dog and ram it back in terrier box. My oldest dogs nearly 14 now. We dug him last week nothing drastic a couple of metres but I still give the old dog a praise up on break through and afterwards. I heard one lad say they re tools . They re there for a job I agree but don t get caught up in the macho bollxxxs and start being heavy handed with em if you don t get a result. Take em off quietly on your own and let them work it out for themselves. Sometimes I think the dogs are brighter than the owner.

    hard terriers

    At the start you have to work with what you have. Hard , steady mixer, mute, bayer. As time goes on you can be selective in what you keep and want in a working terrier. As for people’s opinions bud I would nt fret to much. I learned years ago that 90 % of it is bollxxxs anyway. Look after your dogs enjoy your digging and let the idiots do their own thing.
