Hard Dogs How Many.


Recommended Posts

Mute dog would not keep it I like the sound of sounding under my feet to much most of what I come across is educated stuff and I dig them with bayer mixer types I have no need for hard dog just my opinion I feel a hard dog goes in goes to grips straight away so forcing the game to basically fight for its life so dog takes unnesary stick and laid up for weeks were as a good bayer mixer keeps occupied with out giving or taking to much stick and can be used week in week out I was privledged enough to grow up in a time and a place were you could still dig badger and went out with our local digging club as a kid as my uncle was a member they dug a lot all educated with little baying dogs no problem and as there was no locator collars they had to be that way all with one dog no collar and baying just think these very hard types is what makes the quarry very hard might just be me getting old lol

I think everyone has a different opinion on what is called a hard terrier.Some will call a terrier that can kill fox to ground on a regular basis hard where others will say the dog just has a nack for

If it wasnt for them hard dogs being bred off there would be barely any decent dogs about today. Them that drift away from hard dogs altogether do so at their own peril,il use nick stevens as an examp

Theres still a difference between a mute dog and a hard dog IMO. Some can be mute because they get a good hold and dont let go, so they take minimal stick. Whereas some go in and grab hold wherever they can regardless if the game is able to strike at them at will. And then it's a case of rushing down otherwise the dog won't last very long. I admire a hard dog but you can't beat digging to the sound of baying instead of having to check on the box every 5 minutes.

Not all digging men panic under them circumstance and take their time as much as any .Id hate to have a headless chicken on any dig b it ur using a mute or a mixer. We all have are own preference. Which should be respected a working dog is a working dog at the end of the day just some see the need for a certain type. Each to their own.

It's not about panic. It's more about respect for the dog and knowing what they're going to look like when you get to them. Some lads care about their dogs and don't want them to be in bits when they break through, so digging down to them faster than usual would be more respect for the dog than panic.

As above everybody differs and everybody has a different view on a "hard" terrier, I don't actually own s terrier anymore due to circumstances I just have the one lurcher however this is one of my old dogs, never walked out, f****d about a few times towards the end of his career but every dog has its day off now and again, he bay and bully until I broke through and then he would grab hold as soon as I broke through, post-102608-0-46451400-1477130554.png

I cant be doing with speed diggers either, dog in, box on , minute it stops dig like fck, seems like theyre worried dog will walk, maybe a bit of time will would do dog good. A very well known dog that was hard as they come was dropped in a spot on an invite that was always handy, anyway went to about fourteen foot, hard going, took a good while but the dog was baying by the end, this was the making of the dog, and I know of plenty of other dogs that done similar, in fact most of the best dogs ive seen have been mute for a season or two then start baying. I have a bitch here just started baying this year and its her third season, I was delighted last week to hear her baying, give them a bit of time, let them learn there trade, if they cut out for it they will bay, if not they'll walk and youll know what you have.

And with experience knowing where to catch hold.

I like to give a dog time and not do anything in haste. 100mph on the shovel and you'll blow yourself out and your dog won't have settled. Steady from the off and you'll get to your dog quicker in the long run.

I think it's a lot down to good big hard dog

Fox In tuff place for dog to get up with his fox.

If it's Hard dog or sounder If your dog

Haven't Hart or the no how to keep digging

On to his fox that's only the start for the dog

If the fox is in a wide bit of the hole only hoping to see head And when that muzzle shows of dog it's show time for that fox not dog beceuse his

Still can't do anything only keep trying to get hold and dig on by that time his looking like dartboard with

Them holes fox put in him then fun starts

We all no what a good big dog fox can do when

He have his good ground with him When

Any dog can get that job don that's dog I think

Every boady be happy with hard or not so hard
