with regard to coursing under rules I would in many ways liken the dogs to racing dogs (some I"m sure will disagree lol)

My logic behind this is that the scoring system to my understanding gave out the most points to the dog who came out 1st at the run up and then for turning or half turning the hare with the least points being awarded for a kill.

This being the case you require a sprint dog (racer) who will excell in that 1st run up and consequently within the 1st 30 seconds to attempt to turn the hare to gain the maximum of points.

This I feel would be the case with both greyhounds or whippets

Whippet's are bunny dog's anything else they take is a bonus and shouldnt be expected regular imo

From a purely aesthetic view ,if there is a finer sight on God's green earth than a whippet in full flow behind a hare ,then I haven't seen it .

the Whippet Coursing Club must have been wasting their time for 5 decades, should of asked you before they formed   The answer is yes they can and yes they do have enough stamina and no they dont ca

Well said! Nobody should buy a whippet thinking of going out and getting a couple of hares regularly, but i am buying another Whippet from Coursing lines lagana/mike brown etc not because i intend on looking for hares but because on the off chance i see one the dog will be slipped and because my ma wont let me have big donkeys of things :tongue2:

That sounds OK in theory, but if you look at the Greyhound thread with the video of Cashels Evening, at the last Waterloo Cup, the far bigger dog she is in with, leads up and makes the first turn, then the little bitch takes over and domnates the course to win. So it's not allways the first dog to the hare that wins.

 

Cheers.

The purebred kc coursing whippet must retain a 5 generation pedigree  be k.c registrar and be entered into the whippet coursing club stud books and not exceed the height of 20inches at the withers a kc purebred that are of this particular status are then eligible to compete in such events Purebred coursing whippets are absolutely fantastic  amazing little hare coursing dogs and they often bold over winter hares providing they are slipped in a brace for some hares are relatively fast, big,and heavy for a single handed whippet.

I got a old none ped here who took hare ,fox but I'd never say he was a hare ,fox dog as he was used on rabbits mostly and it was while out rabbiting he took them ,he put an end to few hares but not what you call long runs as no law given ,but to me thats a pot filler

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      My mate who i do a bit of ratting with is looking for a Whippet or Whippety Lurcher pup.
      Idealy he's looking for a small, fast dog that is tough enough to rat alongside terriers, ferret and lamp with.
      A full whippet would be great but one with plenty of poke and will get stuck in to the rough and tumble of ditch side ratting days on freezing open land.
      There's no rush but if anyone can point him in the right direction that would be welcome.
      Thanks.

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
