Best Breed For Simulated Coursing An Straight Racing


Recommended Posts

 

personaly if the lad just wants to go and watch his dog run with like minded people I don't see the harm in it.each to there own.seems a lot of people are fast to put down another mans sport yet were needing more people to support ours????.my money is on these lure coursing dogs are pretty well cared for and have a great life.

reckon a whippet grey would suit you mate.good luck with whatever you choose :victory:

 

I've not got an issue with racing dogs. . . .

 

But there are a lot of folk, who take speciallly bred raced dogs, or even un tatooed greys, and run them at the game fairs and terrier and lurcher shows. . . .

 

It's like a premier league football team doing a tour of the sunday leagues, because they will win a load of trophys. . .

 

I see what your sayin. :thumbs:

.... Having said that, if you go round game fairs and do the lurcher racing with a purpose bred race dog..... Your a bit of a dick IMO.

The name The Hunting Life should have warned you that this might be a rough ride lol If youre wanting to race join a whippet racing club or get a flapping greyhound depending on where you live and d

Get a 3/4 greyhound 1/4 whippet/collie etc cover it with a greyhound and the pup out of that with a greyhound and the pup out of that again with a greyhound keep doing this for another 3+generations. that's what all the racing nuts in my part of the world are doing and claiming its a lurchers. If your just into racing grow a set and get a greyhound and get amongst the big boys instead of spoiling working lurcher races with your greyhound sorry (lurcher)

It's unbelievable what you see at game fairs here people taking 7+ dog up so they have a dog to race in every class most of them being full greyhounds or very near it and eloctrolytes the give to a dog before a race when all it's doing is sprinting for 300 yards and back in the trailer. They take it far to serious and all they win is a bag of dog food and a rosette. Can't understand why they don't race greyhounds at least there would be good money in it for winning

Cuz 99% of them don't wanna spend the money that it takes to go big time plus the fact they don't know what the hell they are doing actually combined with the fact they actually gotta race other greyhounds. HAHA!

Yep if you want to race dogs then get into whippet or greyhound racing and leave the humble working dog to have a fair chance racing against dogs of his own kind ... I have only been to one show in the last 7or 8 years and that was this year to get my pup a bit of socialising and the amount of pure running dogs being lined up to race as lurchers was ridiculous ........

The thing is dan they are spending the money on dogs and taking them to lurcher races you should see the equipment and supplements they have.

Nothing wrong with that I work my bitch during the winter and give her a run or two at a game fair. She's a 5/8 greyhound 3/8 bull. It's people with 7/8greyhounds 1/8collie etc or full greyhounds I'm talking about that spoil it for genuine people who work there dogs and enjoy a race or two during the summer for abit of banter against their mates dogs

funny old game this keeping dogs at times with some of the comments you read on here,who cares what the lad wants to do with his dogs,if you hunt then hunt,if its racing your into then race why anyone with a working lurcher feels the need to slate him il never know,if your worried about your worker not shining in the simulated coursing/straight racing dont enter it simple its not like you got anything to prove is it,if yours is a worker then thats what you want to be more concerned about not can it catch a tesco bag infront of your mates.
