It s good that there s still younger lads coming through , but I watched a few lads out and noticed a few things that made me cringe . Maybe I’m set in my ways to much. First was dog in then box was o

If the dog is staying there aint too much more to know or am I wrong all these years. I like to get a spade between combatants to save injuries but others seem to revel in combat Seen some bad choices

Id say how you conduct yourself isnt so much about experience but about your general character. Some lads will never learn and will be out digging narrow holes in the summer with a young pup, often the older lads too. Id say in general the younger generation are conducting themselves better than the last generation, remember they didnt contribute to any ban.

I think it depends on the person young or old and what there standard is. I learned off the older generation how to locate a dog without a collar and box. This to me is priceless now but at the same time they were happy to double up dogs. Young fellas tend to rush in too quick and make bad decisions but sometimes it can work out for them. Old fellas can be stubborn and even when wrong are too thick to be told different from a youngster. I found after digging with a lot of different  men to take the bits of knowledge you need from them and ignore what you don't need but you  still are learning.

Every days a school day and everyone should realise there’s always room for change .. seen plenty lads who been in the game 40 plus years doing things that would make you cringe...all about the  kill and a photo   ..then seen lads who been in game 5 minits showing respect, to quarry,  earths and there little warriors ...

Maybe I'm just complacent but at the age of 52 I aint needing to learn much more nor have I in the last 20 years .I was lucky in the the chap I first went out with was as laid back as I am about the whole deal .No need to run about with the box ,no need to listen at holes and no need for needless talk. Dig the hole to match the depth and try to break through just behind the dog .Backfill tube behind dog  if animal is to be despatched .This is where I've seen things go from bad to worse.

If the dog is staying there aint too much more to know or am I wrong all these years. I like to get a spade between combatants to save injuries but others seem to revel in combat Seen some bad choices when a dog us stuck fast, pulling tails and legs the wrong angle .Dogs tails aint for pulling despite all the old books saying so and legs need to be manoevred  so as to put no strain on the back or rib cage .The whole removal needs to go with the dog not against it

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH, but there straight away you answer with things that come from experience and not word on word advice.

Terrierwork is 99% learned from experience and hopefully a lad has a good teacher. That's a big secret :thumbs: either way it's a hard school and sadly it's the terrier who often gets the blame for his masters bad work.

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      Hello there. I have a jack Russell pup coming in the next few weeks when he is ready to leave his mother. He’s from working stock and I am hoping to try him out when he’s ready. I would just like to get some advice or pointers from people on here as to what sort of diet you think is best for working terriers? I Want to keep him in best condition I can, strong and healthy. All comments very much appreciated.

      Despite a sad year, we have still so funny adventures, thanks to our dogs.
