Sealyham or Sealyham X
TheGrafter posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working TerriersMorning lads, so I’ve always had black fell terriers and work them to ground. But for a few years I’ve noticed people starting work slightly broken coated very short coupled terriers that are little savages. I never really get a clear answer to what’s in them but I really like the look of them. one chap told me he’d crossed his Sealyham with a Russel and it turned out a good little worker. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this breeding specifically for earth work? thanks
Oshea posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working TerriersGood evening Gents, Using this platform again as I find it a great way to reach out into a pool of knowledge and great experience. Now I don’t work my terriers to hounds here in Ireland, but more than often will find myself having a wonder about my permission and trying the terriers in some common spots. However, I have noticed I’ve drawn more blank days than good and wanted to know what those who don’t work terriers under hounds provide consistent work for their own, how do you go about your day out to guarantee an earth will be occupied and how do you feel about drawi
Oshea posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working TerriersGood afternoon Chaps, Been working a new bitch this season, who’s incredibly game. Had two successful digs to her, she worked the both Charlie’s very well with no encouragement from me and held up well until I got through. However, on the last two occasions she’s rocketed in and bayed straight away with pure excitement. After locating her in a short time I’ve dug down to find her baying at fresh bedding /or a tight spot. I’m embarrassed to say on one occasion a rabbit has bolted in the far end of the earth (which is something I don’t want to encourage at all). Although she’s wasn’t
What made a good terrier man?
Oshea posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working TerriersI’ve just finished reading Nick Stevens book called “An obsession” and found it a really good read with a great insight into the life of a professional terrier man (Pre-ban). It got me wondering what made a great terrier man for the hunt, I know there are the obvious answers but Nick went into great depths discussing the success in fox population from good cover-laying in comparison to building artificials and went into great detail about the country and we’ll know earths. are there any well weathered terrier men that could cast their opinions into the past world of hunting and
Terrier off lead
Oshea posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working TerriersLetting off the lead - Hello chaps, I was given a Powell bread bitch from a close friend who didn’t have the space nor time to accommodate. She came to my kennels at seven months, very game and unfortunately doesn’t always mix well with other dogs. I like to be able to walk mine off the lead, have them stock broken and have some recall! But this bitch is the most pig headed thing, off the lead, her head goes down and she’s off. I’ve tried and tried to improve things but she will not listen. Since having her I’ve accommodated for her ways and brought her on slowly, she

For those not already aware, Alison Johnstone MSP (Scottish Green Party) has tabled a Private Member’s Bill, which if approved would have a severe, negative impact on all forms of hunting with dogs (including terrierwork). It is presently out for public consultation and that consultation period ends on 15th September 2019, which is less than a month away. It’s essential that you and as many other likeminded individuals as possible respond before that date. Before responding you are advised to read the comments and notes of guidance provided by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and/or Scot

cathunter posted a topic in Earthdogs & Working Terriersi have done search's on here and can't find any thing on the type of terrier i've been thinking about. the job's that it would be required to do is be a sounder/bayer/bolter on foxes and rabbits. the reason behind the idea is because some spots i have found are very inaccesable for digging and all i'm after is a dog that has minamal trouble in and out of hole so no digging required. the dog is only going to be used for bolting for my running dog pup i know i'll get told to get a ferret (i have one)or just cop flack becouse it's not conventional but any way any idea's would be much a
