    As said it all depends on the work style of the terriers you keep and the amount of work put in front of them.we have at preseo10 workers and all are dug regularly or when they are fit to be dug everyone differs and not everyone would have the ground others have to go at so a couple of terriers would easily see them through a season.

    No fascination with me I just like to know what I'm both breeding and feeding as the saying goes its as easy feed a good one as a bad one. I think that's why there's so much shit been bred dogs are not getting the work they should and still been bred from. At least if I breed a litter I know all behind them are doing what I want and doing it well and any pups I breed are kept among very close friends.

    I have never put any man in an awkward place and also would not ask any man to enter a terrier where I wouldn't enter one of my own.I have also seen that sort of shit done only for the smerk to be wiped from their mugs.what I meant was I've had lads here blowing smoke up their dogs arses saying their this that and the other only to be made look like fools in relatively easy places.foxdropper as you we'll know their is a big difference in green grass and grass that's been grazed.
  5. Not a lakiexbull but I had a lakiexwheaten and a very good dog he was had to be pts in the end he went both blind and deaf and actually became a liability as he would latch on to anything within range.I think it was that he could just see shadows and was confused so the kindest deed was done for the dog.

    That's another option but in my mind you really don't know what your kenneling then as your dogs are not being tested. People can say what they like and it doesn't bother me who they are but if your digging Quarry and pts all the time then you dont know what you have. I have seen so called good seasoned terriers from over the water come away with their tail between their legs once entered on quarry that knows the score soon sorts the men from the boys so to speak.
  7. Ah yeah we'll behaved and good crack.
  8. Yeah d they can handle the beer good lads like their digging.
  9. Had a couple of lads down from Derry on Saturday and a couple up from down the country. We had 3 good digs and plenty of crack and the lads from Derry stayed local in a hotel Saturday night and a few pints were had all in all a good day

    One swallow doesn't make a summer DMD as I said the quarry around my way won't be dug with a Bayer and I've seen several Bayer.mixer types fail where a more full on terrier will win.

    Have to agree.a Bayer would be of little use around my area maybe early season you might just might get the odd result but mid season all you be doing is digging up holes all over the place as quarry would not be dug with a Bayer and people can disagree if they like but anyone that has dug with me in my area will know what I'm saying is true.

    Not everyone is in it for coin chesney like yourself we like to work our dogs as often as allowed as in everytime their fit to dig to their dug.all of my dogs have seen a lot of digging in their lives so far and will continue to for aslong as their able.like yourself chesney I or my digging mates don't sell pups or dogs we keep them amongst ourselves when ever we breed which is only when we need to.I know their is bitchs been bred from that has seen little or no work but that's down to the individuals that own them and the clowns then that part with big money for them after been told everything they wanted to hear. And aslong as their is people out their to part with their cash their will always be peddlers,

    Breeding Studs/Broods

    From what I have bred from my own and from what I've seen from the same line their is no difference in them work wise apart from the obvious bitchs tend to come smaller not always but they do.I myself have 4 bitchs here all sisters 2 are smallish not real small but not like their other sisters who are doggy type bitchs big and strong.as for wastage on the bitch side of things I would expect bitchs to work same as dogs no reason why they should not size or not as the old saying goes its not the size of the dog in the fight its the size of the fight in the dog. I've seen big terriers sit back well of their quarry where smaller terriers would be right up tight.the type I keep like to rough it up a bit no sitting back which I prefer but still not stupid .

    Without a good bitch to start with your on a down hill slope straight off. I personally believe their are plenty of good dogs out there but good working bitchs are not as plentiful. I have always preferred bitchs as to dogs and at present I've only 1dog in kennels rest are bitchs but I have access to a number of dogs if need be and they are dogs that are all related to my own and also well worked and well proven.a good brood bitch is worth their weight in gold IMO and should be treated as such because when their gone its very hard replace them.
  15. That's what its all about for me starting young dogs nothing more rewarding than seeing a youngster start after rearing it up until its fit for off best of luck With them shanag and I hope they do the business for you.
