Hard Terriers may suit some people ie.someone who dosnt get out that often,or someone who hasnt the work for the dog,lads who are digging week in week out obviously wouldnt suit them.

It all depends on what you call a hard terrier.Lads definition of hard vary.The dogs i keep most lads would say there hard,but i would say there hard workers,but with brains to match.Sounders are grand,but i seen a lot just when your about to break through the quarry will push and the dog move with it,which means a second hole to open.I also seen dogs which get a few marks on a dig and there owners think there in bits and lay them off for weeks,i give mine a week and there grand,but everyone to there own.

Stig -Thats a great point. If you ask the question like whats the point, well then your eithere very lucky or dont hunt enough. In the States , no one really hunts badger so just leave that one out but coons and very few fox with woodchucks. The last 3 somtimes get to a places you cant dig anymore,cant get a weapon on it or a draw dog. Its beating the piss out of your terrier and you want it ended......hard terrier. Everyone should have one in your toolbox :yes:

Was just about to say that.

In my eyes there are two types of hard terrier:-

 

Ones which boss their quarry.

Ones which are bossed.

 

Some dogs pick up the knack of killing foxes with unbelievable regularity and pick up very few marks. Thats a sensible hard terrier.

Then you get those that steam in and finish up as if someone has split logs on their face whilst their opponent is virtually unscathed.

 

The latter is of little/no use to me. Stupidly hard is only a liability in the field.

 

And lets not forget, this is all PRE BAN. In todays terms we are only legally aloud to use a soft bayer.

A hard dog may only be useful in some places but without hard dogs to breed from you would end up with no good terriers down the line

:thumbs: Places where hard dogs are needed, I would take hard dog or a bayer as long as they stay till the job is done, and as said before, stuff that dosnt want to be dug will not be dug with a bayer. If I had the chance to pick how a dog worked it would be one that bayed but would always be willing to put in that wee bit extra when needed, I wouldnt call that a bayer though
