    Dirt Bags The Lot Of Em!

    Exactly! The tossers would say they should have phoned the police for help ... They could have arrived in time to clean up the mess from the gang rape! What a joke! Hope the old fella pulls through!! When seconds count, the police are only minutes away...

    Kennel And Run Ideas

    I've looked at these myself but they didn't work out much cheaper than the solid Galv panels. Not sure how it would work out building your own. But I think I'm going down the solid panel route next with bar dividers and bar front gates. Small wooden kennel inside or a plastic barrel and a decent roof... gaz that's similar to what I'm doing only a block of 4 runs- 4ft x4ft each for my terriers-solid dividing partions and mesh door fronts-comes in at just under 700 notes for metalwork then got to put a roof on it,that's around another 100/150-they will have 30 l blue plastic barrels filled with sawdust and straw up off the floor.got all the drainage channels foc from site.worked it out at around 1050 all in.my lurcher runs 3.2m X2.0m and only has the one young dog in there as the wife has brought the old girl into the house.only gets up for a piss/walk or food lazy bitch lol.best thing about panels is they easy to take down/add on if need be atb dc Yeah panels are really mobile and modular.

    Kennel And Run Ideas

    There's only so much we can do though isn't there. Okay so you use solid panels in the kennel for dividers. But mine aren't 24/7 kennel dogs what only come out for a few hours a week like some. Can I not go a walk along the shop when they are playing in the garden? Can I not take a bath in case they kick off in the kitchen? Should I keep them in separate cages in the motor incase they decide to kill each other when I'm driving on the motorway? Or do you socialise the dogs well from young, let them experience plenty of time together as a pack in and around the house and give them plenty of graft and excersise so they are chilled out and relaxed and then hope for the best? In a word, no. There have been plenty of cases over the years of people losing their dogs in fights, or confiscations because someone has heard a fight and the police/RSPCA have got there before the owner. my dogs are all kennelled individually. If I'm not DIRECTLY supervising them (walking or training or playing in the garden) they go in their kennels or on chains so they can't each each other. When we go in the motor they are all muzzled. I'll be investing in seperate cages as soon as I get the set up right.

Definitely use solid dividers between pens. Don't want a dog getting dragged through the bars!

    I've got galv run panels and the dogs sleep in plastic 220l barrels.

    3 Yr Old Killed By Dog In Essex Yesterday.

    I had a bitch imported direct from Alan Scott who was as good an alrounder as you could want and have seen a few very good dogs over the years but unfortunately the shit ones far outnumber even the average ones.If I was going to get another one which I'm not there is only 2 breeders in the UK that I would consider getting one from.The same Alan Scott who added Pitbull to his dogs to try make a name for himself? Some breed that AB.....His dogs had it in them right from the start.Exactly, just another puppy peddler making his name off the work of others..Yes he was just another peddler in the end but no different to most of the game dog fanciers out there.Them yanks would all sell their mother if the money was right. You think people of the UK are any better... What was the logic behind breeding from an unstable bitch?

    Shows Us Ur Bullx

    This could go on and on lol. I don't mean the 'odd collie x' doing a bull x's job, I never said that. And there certainly WON'T be a bull/grey catching hares or most deer in this country that hasen't rebounded off a fence etc, even on the lamp. Seen plenty of collie crosses, I/2 X, but mostly 3/4 breds taking fox very regularly, as well as other quarry, and on the same night. But I do agree with you to a certain point, there obviously are some racily built 1/2 bull x's about, but they still aren't going to be fast enough to catch as much as most other types, especially some of the heavier types of bull x's. Big difference to a lurcher with an 1/8th bull as well as a drop of other blood and grey, to a 1st x bull grey.Anyway, how is your bitch bred, 5/8 grey 3/8 bull? Shark I agree with most of what you say but if you don't think there are bull crosses out there that could catch hare and deer preban then you ain't seen a good one mate. If I breed a dog that's 1/8 bull and 1/7 grey it's still a bull X. But I'd reckon that would have the speed to catch everything on this island. Many years ago I saw a first cross bull/grey catch everything you have described.

    Shows Us Ur Bullx

    That's one thing im pleased with my pup is her feet Yeah she's got good tight cat feet. So has the other litter mate I've seen. My bull X needs his nails clipping regular as the shape of his foot means they don't wear properly, as he has flipper feet on the front. I've never cut and adult dogs nails in my life. If they aren't cut they start to push his foot out of shape. Yet my Bedlington X and herding dog mix don't need cutting ever. They all get the same amount of road work as well.

    Pointer X Greyhounds

    They're known as being independent hard headed b*****ds. And exactly how many have you trained? I have had two, and not had any problems, once I knew how to train them. If your not comfortable letting a dog work up to half a mile away from you and know that you still have the dog under control, then they are not for you. A lot of people think they can train them like a spaniel or a lab and it does not work, it goes against every instinct the dog has. TC You misinterpret my comments as criticism. I've not trained any, but I know people who have. Like you say, they can't be trained like a spaniel or lab. My current circumstances do not allow for such a dog, but when they change and things settle down I shall certainly be adding one to my kennel.

    The Border Terrier

    They're more popular on the continent. I've a Hungarian friend who digs badgers with her border bitch most weekends. Single handed as well.
