    Starting out, new dog

    Have always had an interest in dogs in general (ive always had terriers but later became interested in running dogs). I've lived in Spain for 5 years and have a 4 year old whippet but hes from show lines and has never worked. Recently, encouraged by my girlfriend we decided on getting another pup. We came across a galgo from good coursing lines and went for it (if anyone is interested there are a few videos of parents/grandparents coursing on the internet that i can post). He's currently 14 weeks old and has been with me for 2 weeks. He already has a decent recall and i'm now teaching him to retrieve. Is there any advice you'd give to someone about how to go about getting started, books worth reading, training etc? I know it's important not to overdo it but is there anything specific that i should be doing? The idea would be rabbiting/mooching and maybe hare coursing if i can find something fairly closeby. He's eating a diet of meat, offal and a bit of veg and is almost as big as the whippet already so going to be pretty big. Can already tell that they mature much slower than whippets, i guess becauae of the difference in size. I've also seen there are a few users who travel to/live in spain so any insight in the laws etc over here hunting with dogs (I'm in the catalonia region) or experience with breed would be really helpful. The first pic is of him before he arrived, the black bitch is the dam and thought i'd throw in a photo of my whippet...not a bad place to live! Thanks for any help

    rabbit plague

    found this old article
  3. Sadly Mick Douglas has passed away a few years ago ,its interesting to hear from others who knew him or met him . I had 2 lurchers from Mick and as you see later will put up some photos . I was young at the time ,but his advice on training and working was a great help,in my hunting trips. He was his own man ,living up on the marshes and had a lot of skills too. I enjoyed being in his present,never did i feel he talked bullshit and what was passed to me made a lot of sense, you be sadly missed my friend and thank you for sharing your knowledge to me ......

    Advice needed

    I'm new to this site and the hunting game as well but I recently bought myself a rabbit cage trap of a really genuine guy who told me he had lots of rabbits in his cage trap. He gave me some good advice which I have listened to but any other advice would be appreciated. I've put my cage in the field put a trail of carrot peeling down and dangled a carrot in the real cage but I've had no luck yet in catching a rabbit. Does anyone know if they like them chopped or whole, peeled or unpeeled? I was also thinking about trying some lettuce as the little gems in lidl are cheaper than carrots any ideas on this matter would be great

    Success

    Well after all the hard work and challenges training it’s finally paid off took my pup out today ferreting, nice cold morning bit of frost lack of rabbits have made it hard to get the dog around any rabbits but this morning I got her on a nice little warren 6 holes and bolted 2 in the nets dog covered the nets nicely so I thought I’d leave a net off and if one bolted she could run it and I sat her down and within a few moments could hear bumping the dogs ears were pinned up and just as that rabbit bolted the dog was there and snapped it up straight out the hole brought it back live and released it on command! First catch for her one of many I hope absolutely chuffed to bits couldn’t of asked for a better morning or better result.

    Small lurcher,

    Hello all, bit of a strange one this BUT, my 8 year old lad wants to get into the game but obviously with him only being 8 if rather him go out with me, however, hes now decided he wants his own dog instead of just going with me. Mythering me for the last few months now and I've decided to post on here, andlooking at purchasing a small dog for him, preferably whippet, or atleastbsomething that isnt going to pull him over a field. BUT won't be spending a lot of money as it's nearly xmas and already spent too much and as this will be part xmas for him it needs to be fairly cheap,(cheeky), going to start him with ferreting first to see how he gets on. Thanks in advance

  10. I am thinking about getting a beddy whippet or beddy grey from what I have seen on the other forums. Plenty of walks and woods Near by to have a mooch with it and hope to grab a few rabbits. Make my walks with my Airedale abit more fun! but would eventually like to get into abit of lamping/ferreting even ratting of a weekend! Would this be the right breeds dog or should I look at somthing else? Any advise is appreciated!
  11. Now then guys, as a quick intro, ive only ever lamped once when i was a youngen with my sisters boyfriend, I've just been getting a lurcher pup (saluki collie grey x bull grey) only 8 weeks at the moment so a long way to go I know. I was just wondering if anyone has any sound advice on raising a working pup for the lamps, nutrition advice, equipment, anything that will help me out over the next couple of years. I'm very interested in the hunting scene, always have been, and finally got round to getting myself in a position to learn, so any advice will be taken well. Thanks in advance.

    Finish the job!

    Hi all I am a new member to this site and hope I’m doing it right. Apologies if I come across as an ameteur, I am, so any advice is much appreciated. I will try my best to provide the correct information required to get the best response. I have a Lurcher, just over a year old, she is a whippet English bull terrier x collie greyhound. She is a brilliant pup, well behaved, good recall, most of the time and has serious prey drive despite her size. She chases everything that moves out on daytime walks, deer, rabbits, squirrels, hares, you name it she’s on it. Despite her desire to chase she is yet to return with any animal, dead or alive. Sometimes I watch her and she’s so far up the creatures ass I get so excited and think this is it, she’s going to launch at it and finish the job off BUT I am always let down. She seems to love the chase but never makes the lunge!! What can I do to promote this, do I wait and be patient, will it come in time? She obviously doesn’t associate a running rabbit to a dead bleeding tasty treat? I want her to catch a daytime rabbit before I go out at night and train her on the lamp, is this a good idea or am I doing it the wrong way round? This is my first dog and I am obviously very inexperienced in this field but am willing to learn and want to follow it up coz I clearly have an intelligent dog who is keen to do the job but just doesn’t know how? I am always told what an amazingly well behaved dog she is despite her age so am doing something right. I live in Oxfordshire and have been trying to find someone to go out with lamping but to no avail, if anyone would be willing to help out in this department also that would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks guys

    smoking out

    Anyone know anything about smoking out rabbits from the hole instead of using ferrets? Is it totally illegal now? I can't keep ferrets. Got a dog mainly for lamping but wandered if there was a way of pushing rabbits out their hole without ferrets?
  20. Going back through my phone looking at pics of the pup from earlier this year. Found a few videos of her getting her first few rabbits. Got me looking forward to starting again in the next few weeks
