FERRETBOY

Romeo X Fly Pups

Recommended Posts


I have always been worried about selling him because of the injury to his shoulder but maybe I will after I have done some work with him.

 

Cheers dodger, they were a year old yesterday. They have had a cracking start. Could have had some better training but that will come I hope, the more I take them out.

A few pics of Mabel from yesterday.

 

Had her out working for the first time about a fortnight ago and we bagged 14, all netted but she was catching on to what was happening and was great around the ferrets (but like a tit I forgot to take my phone or camera on the day)

she recalls like a c$%& still! very erratic, if she wants to listen she does, if shes got her nose on something theres no point even shouting her. at least when a spaniel wants to do its own thing it looks at you as if to say "piss off - your not the boss of me!" she doesn't even flick an ear, the ignorant little bugger!!!

 

recall sorts itself out a bit if i resort to the shock collar (usually vibrate is enough to get her attention but she does need the occasional tickle of encouragement but I'll break her into something resembling obedient eventually!

 

she has a great prey drive though and her nose is barely off the ground and i'm not really going to be running her on the lamp, the recall issue isnt as bad as it would be because she will stay visible, she is just far more interested in following scent than listening to me. Because I need her for daytime ferreting around the nets and the occasional bolt I'm happy to work her with the collar on as I know I can keep her out of trouble and I'm hoping starting working her will focus her a bit more and make her realise fun things happen when she listens to me. I will not be defeated by a dog!!!

 

I'll stick a tape on her when I get chance, she is deceptively tall because of being lean but I don't think of her as a big dog particularly as she doesn't have the presence that moose has despite her being an inch or two taller at the shoulder.

Great photos mate. If shes anything like her dams dam she will be perfect for the racing. I will try mine this summer at the shows.

They have turned out to be a good litter thats for sure. I have just rehomed nipper so hes gone to some lads from kent that go coursing in france.

I must admit there has been a massive (positive) change in her demeanour since starting working over the ferrets this winter and hopefully using the race club every few weeks through the summer when I get opportunity around other commitments should help maintain / improve her fitness and keep her match fit!

I cant do it mate. Not even to a 10 year old pot licker. I reckon hes in good hands now. Dogs got all the capabilities of making someone a nice dog and the lad that has him keeps me updated with how hes doing.
