  2. Hi lads , Been fishing years , known plenty of lads who hunt always interested in it , got a dog two weeks a back a saluki whippet , fathers of bog warrior coursing bitch in uk , mother full whippet .

Anyways , any advice you can give on teaching her to lamp , and what stuff I should invest in would be appreciated So many different lads saying work them off lead on lead you need this collar and that etc ,
  3. I’ve got a collie/whippet X collie/greyhound with a touch of bull (apparently) she is thick set but only stands at around 22-23 tts she’s 3 years old I’m going to be putting a pure whippet on the back of her in the next few days has anyone got any pictures of a similar X
  4. The pup is growing away nicely.... The pup is 2nd gen first cross.. 4.5 months old 19" tts
  5. I have two mk1 boxes that need fixing. Does anyone know who still does this?
  6. Haven't been on here in ages, just thought I'd share a few recent pictures of my pup Simba as he approaching his 1st birthday, he's all stripped out for the summer and showing my plenty of promise of what's to come this season. He's just touching on 26tts now, bigger than I expected seeing as dam and sire were 24.5 and 24tts respectively. He's had a handful of rabbits on the lamp end of season to get an idea of what the game is about and has no trouble picking them up, he's already used his size to his advantage a couple of times and keeping the freezer full too. Really happy with him so far even if he's practically untrainable. He doesn't entertain retrieving yet but maybe he'll get the idea when the real work starts.
  7. Just starting to get ready for my first season with the dog and it he started crying a lot for no apparent reason which then got a lot worse very quickly. He's currently on anti inflammatories and pain killers (prescribed by vet) and just waiting to see how if his condition changes this week. If not it's €500 for a CAT scan at a specialist to see what it is. Vet says it's either a muscular injury or a hernia (somewhere in his neck). The other day he and the whippet decided to running jump off a 3m wall for some reason which may or may not be related (was fine for a few days after). Just wondered if anyone has had anything similar and if their dog was able to recover 100%. Absolutely gutted, not nice seeing him in the state he's in at the moment.

  11. We rescued this dog in November 2018, he was 9 months old and was down as a bull lurcher. Not really sure what breeds are in him. He is approximately 26 inches at the shoulder, around 27 kg, has huge paws, heavy bones, thick rough coat but legs and head smooth. Ball obsessed and has similar characteristics of a collie. Any suggestions would be helpful. Theses pictures were taken when he was around 10/11 months old.

  20. Hi guys So I've got a lurcher, loki (lives up to his name) lovely boy gentle nature. Softie and is so gentle with other animals great with rats kittens the lot I just cannot fault him. Loki is 3 years old this April 6th. So when I got loki he was a pup, 8 weeks. He was socialised with young and adult dogs from a young age and gradually left for short to longer periods of times with toys and other entertainment ext. All done properly. Also when left as a young pup he was at work with me in a crated area in plain site of other dogs too so he wasn't on his own as such. He was always quite unsettled however even with food and toys he just wanted to be with me. He would be left for 20 to 30 to an hour and so on gradually. I worked at a vet practice and every one kept their dogs there. The dogs were all walked twice a day on our breaks and it was all a dog friendly happy environment he was just always wanting to be with me however which is what may make sense with what I describe later on in this statement. As he got older walks would be around 2 hours or so along side my chihuahua haha both love long walks in the wilderness (Hampshire woodlands and open fields ext) Loki was slightly involved in some starter racing when he was 1 and 1/2 years and entered some showing. I kept him in tact because of the showing and racing and was advised that it was best to but I wasn't one to not have it done if it should have been. Anyway trying to cut this as short at possible.. So I had to leave work due to personal reasons and change jobs which meant loki having to be left at home and our routine changed. He began to soil and wee in his crate which I'm positive was due to anxiety as he wasnt left more than two hours in it (a friend would come by the house and let him out) and I myself would come home on my lunch break and let the dogs out. I can only assume that his anxiety of me leaving the house and him crated without other dogs in site may have caused anxiety and in tern messing in his cage. I made a decision to try him out of the crate just because of him being in his wee and poo and restrict him to a room or the house and then came the mess, the damage and the continous soiling and wetting around the house. This dog has cost me alot of money and repairs. I'm at my witts end even though I love him to pieces. Ive looked into training but to be honest i stupidly thought maybe i could read up on it and fix it myself but I ended up suffering illness for a long time which lost me another job and has been a bar on my own active life which has made me feel so guilty. His recalls have always been a hard one just because of his breed he's so high wired too. If he sees another dog he is so so interested, lunges launches and dives and off lead he just runs and runs and runs and will wrestle dogs not hurt or bite them but play roughly _ I'm thinking maybe his hormones have increased, less active walks. The destruction in the house I think is anxiety as he won't do it if I'm home or someone else is as soon as we pop out from 20 mins up to couple of hours the house is ruined. As I said he's a lovely boy and it's not entirely his fault to be honest it's probably more mine. Maybe I've done something wrong on the journey and missed something. I don't want to rehome him or get rid of him because he really is my dog and I love him and want the best for him and I am ready to pay for the training or take on tips ext. I haven't written this for any criticism just positive criticism and help if at all possible. So despite the facts and story I'll just highlight the problems below and if anyone knows anyone whose a good trainer, books, videos or just any tips I am 100% willing a commited to putting it right! So if we base it around the following, *soiling and wetting the house over night or when left (on occasion) *not so good with recall *highly destracted *destructive and will cause damage if not with him *will raid the bins *on walks will wrestle and play roughly with other dogs if off lesd and will bark lunge and dive on the lead if he sees them. *won't listen well on walks as he's so interested on the dogs and everything else. *anxious at times *fully in tact Thanks guys
