  1. 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 . Hoping to use my dog for hunting when it gets to 10 month mark , lamping rabbits mainly . Just looking for tips on training. Never owned a dog so hard to train , still very intelligent though . 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 ,
  2. 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
  3. Help I’m looking for a pup to meet my needs. I will be hunting rabbit, fox, and deer. I will be hunting pastures and easements. I need something with EXTREME speed for hunting cow-fields and horse-fields in Pennsylvania. If the deer make it to the woods, they are gone. We don’t have miles of giant fields like the Staghound guys do out west for running coyote. Does anyone produce Whippet x Staghound crosses? Can anyone show any video of Dave Platts “English Deerhounds” actually working? Would a purebred Greyhound be too fragile for field work?
  4. Looking to get into ferreting got a lurcher that I already work that’s 18 month lamping and day time mooching and a 7/8 whippet 1/8 greyhound pup that’s 7 months that I will lamp next season and want to go ferreting. Wanting to use them both for ferreting but just want to start off with the whippet for now. Wondered if anyone has an permission near Retford that wouldn’t mind taking me along to watch thanks. Don’t mind travelling
  5. Gonna be looking for a whippet to put to my bitch later on in the year dont wanna go much further than 2 hours from haverhill Suffolk would appreciate if any you lads can help cheers
  6. 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
  7. Hi All, My Whippet x Greyhound is about 18months old now. She is a great family pet and a natural at catching rabbits and even one muntjac (along with my border terrier). If I had more knowledge id love to use her for rabbits & lamping. The only downside to her is that she is very fussy about what she eats... I've tried meat, rice veg and meat/fish, biscuits, chicken skins and she still won't put any weight on. She rarely finishes a meal, and doesn't often eat in the mornings. I don't leave food down all day either. I'm a not concerned that she is unhealthy and it doesn't bother me too much, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar or has any tips on fattening up a running dog?
  8. 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

  19. looking for a litter up now or due soon. bull whippet or bull grey x whippet. in the north west area. any breeders or help would be great
  20. What would a greycollie x whippetbull be like for work, mainly lampin alrounder?
  21. how does a BULL X WHIPPET run compared with a WHIPPET, running bunnies and long ear. how do they turn and are they bursty and agile? anyone with experience or any videos of one running. im curious to how good they are.
  22. Went out tonight for a shine with the whippet slipped her at a bunny chased it around the field then she went way across the twisting and turning it, the feild was id say about 20-30 maybe even forty acres as she went near to the far end of the feild the lamp (Clu-lite cb2) wasnt strong enough to pick it up then she started yapping, im thinking she was yapping because she did not fully know where the rabbit was because of the lamp not being able to shine far enough meaning she didnt know when to make her strike. This is only her id say 5 course on the lamp but by far the best and longest. Has this ever happened anybody, there lamp not being able to shine far enough? I have seen her picking up rebbits in the daytime
  23. hi, i'm new to this forum but had a few dogs. basically i like the look of bull crosses and the attributes they bring to a dog ( gameness etc) but was wondering whats best to cross it with. I will mainly be hunting rabbits but would like it to handle bigger quarry, and something that's quick off the spot. and what percentages are best and on what side (sire dam). not too familiar with all the breeding business you see . i would rather it be real better on rabbits if that helps. thanks.
  24. Im off work at the moment with a broken hand and the boredom is really starting to set heres a video i made of a few pics of my 3 dogs . They're aged between 1-3 , all scenes that fall foul of the hunting ban have been omitted :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CVCrHEf8IY
