Cheers I'm happy with him ... I'll be honest with you he'll never be fully tested in the same way as other terriers mentioned were but they've only ever had to put a smile on my face :)

He,ll get tested allrite

Not sure if I’ve asked this before or not Glyn but what percentage waste would you say you get ,stuff that dosnt like the coal face as it were .

 I'm in a state of flux at the moment  lot of stuff under 3 years old , I bred a litter of 6 pups 21 months ago and 5 have started and  1 still not interested at the moment,  so I wont know my % now for a few years

Was talking in general Glyn .Over the years you must have an idea of some sort of percentage .75 % doing the job proper seems to be a good gauge .Anything less and  the line is fading IMHO .More and your top notch in my book if it’s getting the graft that is .

50% I class as ok with lots of work over years id rather it higher  , hunt work I expect 90-100 %

I find it's the reckless don't make the grade 

But do you prefer a sensible yapper for the hunt work but moving round the earth for ages waiting to bottle up. Or a sensible harder dog when you know when it’s up to quarry your only digging the one hole?

she been described here , but the bitch Tilly was something  she would not kill a rat til she was 5, I dug from 9month   work she'd bay them up and hold not  mark on her after 2 seasons she got brave and had them by the head as day light hit , she'd suffer a kiss or two ...Chaz had them by the head from word go if it got proper tough and long the boy would sing both a joy to dig ....as have been those who come after them

Not to be too harsh on hunt terriermen but if it goes to ground almost anything will do the job on the day and most pros carry a selection for different jobs .Bolters were often other peoples failed digging dogs ,I know I gifted stuff to the hunt that didn’t really have what it takes to do the job regular .50% does seem a bit low Glyn but I’m guessing your being modest on that .Seems to be more and more getting out the game as time goes  by these days ,even youngsters .

yes think we've seen some right shit work with hunts , all I can say on % is I once bred a litter of 6 and all 6 were as good as you could wish for unfortunately I had bred the litter and gave them away , but all ended up with good lads and I saw  all of them work  and have there blood in mine now , and because it was so goodi repeated the mating 6 pups again 2 good workers 2 yo-yo and 2 rubbish I kept two a yo-yo handy for the hunt , and one good  one did a lot of earth stopping with , 3rd litter 5 pups 4 good 1 only wanted to fight other dogs the more I know the less I know lol
