  1. Hi, long story short I've inherited a 5 year old springer with no training at all. I have been working at the basics and she's coming along quite well. I decided to join a gundog training club and attend the obedience class they offer. First session was great and went over all the basics etc, second lesson I stood in a field and watched other peoples' dogs doing retrievals for 40 mins before doing 15 mins of heel work and sit/stays. Seemed like a bit of a waste of time and money. They offer other classes specifically for field training at different levels but this was specifically an obedience class, I was wondering if someone could tell me whether this is normal for such a class or whether I should find somewhere else? cheers
  2. as the title says, If anyone has lost either it might be worth speaking to the police regarding this... www.thecomet.net/news/ferrets_dogs_and_power_tools_from_north_herts_found_in_travellers_site_raid_1_3819445

    would EBT's not have impaired vision? speaking from experience mine have all had a bit of trouble seeing due to the shape of the eyes, so would never have thought of working them

    Rescue Dogs

    Sorry lads should've explained, I'm not after a hardcore worker; my job (sailor) and the fact it'll be my first lurcher mean it won't be out and out hunter. The mrs wants a dog and I want to be able to mooch more than anything

    Rescue Dogs

    ok cheers! as i'm not looking for a balls out hunter, more of a dog to learn with/from, i think a rescue would be better for my circumstances

    Rescue Dogs

    have you had any problems with rehoming centres regards hunting? or is it best not to mention? also are there any generic traits rescue lurchers may pick up? i.e timidness etc

    Ok cheers for the advice lads
  11. Hi guys, Does anyone know of any way of repelling foxes/stopping them crossing your garden? The old boy next door keeps leaving food for them and they pass through my front garden digging it up and the whole area stinks. Thanks in advance
