Opinions On Which Way To Go?


Recommended Posts


Only thing that let's a good whippet down is its skin .. my sister has a blue brindle bitch before the ban and when my bitch was lame I used to take the whippet and she would fly outta terrano window tie a hare up in knots and retrieve back to the car and as for rabbits she was mustard

Paulus fair point but it's not really how I like to hunt, keeping a dog on the slip. The whole enjoyment is seeing a dog mooch about an work as a team. DAn I agree I could probably find 2 lurchers of around that size, although their doesn't seem to be that many, finding 2 that work is a little harder as I say no rush but would be nice to get one in this summer atb

Thing is mate we are all different, want different things am expect dogs to do different jobs, luckily lurchers can do most of what we need, get the dog you like, as you'll have to look at it all its life, keep getting dog out an the dog will figure the rest out

I have to agree johnny, i think in truth it's probably my old man getting in my head that I would be better with something bigger less whippet etc probably so he can nick it when old enough, he already borrows the terrier when I am working. I will be living with it though so going to stick to my guns I think and be on the look out for a 3/4 whippet type leith touch of something else to improve coat, if anyone knows a planned litter give me a pm cheers dog will get a good home for life no matter what and plenty of opportunity to shine atb.

i am guilty of this, always say i will keep one on the slip but never do, lost count of the amount of game that i have watched run off across an open field whilst 2 or 3 dogs are still chasing a scent down the hedgerow :laugh:
