working wheaten lines


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Could any one, give me advice on good working lines for wheatens. I understand that i am gonna have to make the trip to ireland for a good'un. Any advice would be really helpful. When i have searched the net all I get is lots about show dogs, not workers.

 

All the best,

That's true BK. The problem is you can't flog a dead horse. This forum is a complete disaster for working dog men. Most would rather believe lies and bicker among each other. So tell them what they be

If it's a dog for the traditional work that wheatens have been employed at in Ireland I would avoid anything that looks like this show bred dog.....

Here's a proper working type at a country show that I judged about 20 odd years ago....

This was my pals big wheaten dog that produced some outstanding foxing lurchers, sadly died a month ago...clipped for the summer....

Brilliant pics, to the last, so i need to make a trip to the republic, no worries, any particular lines i should be looking for. Or counties with a good head of workers? What i am digging at is where to start? Any Irish lads on here with up coming litters?

 

Thanks for all the replies &

All the best,

Hi guy's,

A medium sized one would be good for my needs, not one of the big'uns. I am a bit confused, the diddycye line, is this a working line? I am only interested in working dogs really so the mulben would not really be my cup of tea. Thanks for the replies.

 

Best regards,

G
