none looked fit fit to me mate if any that made good in the box did so from depth of breeding mate been he got good blood that kept throwing the goods 

that just shows the importance of quality blood 👍

He didn't match dogs mate, and truth be told most of his breedings were sold to pet homes as well.

Hell a lot of the dogs that made it in to the box were done so by relative novices, the dogs still competed nevertheless, just shows the quality of the animals.

Of course blood counts mate, you can't put something in if it isn't there in the first place. 👍

Which always puzzles me on why pures haven't replaced the coursing bred dogs over here.

It's a bit like a mongrel replacing the APBT as the king of fighting, just wouldn't happen.

I think the dog men over here know their shit mate. 👍

Pures were there before the coursing breds 

Its a bit like getting an apbt crossing it to a Stafford then back to apbt then breeding best to best 

Without a doubt men made a cracking coursing bred bit they could a made a cracking line a pures if things were different

I know pures were there before but that doesn't mean a breed or type can't be improved mate.

Western dogmen are probably the best in the world mate IMO.

There was hardly any available to "dogmen". The few that were, got crossed with what they already had, lurchers, greyhounds, then best to best. It would have been interesting if some folk had just worked and bred purebreds over the same time🤔

But they were here though so don't understand why you would put them over lurchers or greyhound's if the pures were better and not lacking anything?

If I bought a pure APBT I wouldn't just put any old dog over it if I was struggling to find something, I'd buy another APBT.

Were are you getting them from mate lol

Only so many men would let you use a pure in the 70s 

Most a the pures in the  start a todays coursing bred all come from the same place mate 👍

I'd say better for our land maybe mate but no coursing bred has stamina wind to keep going like a strong pure mate

Plenty Stafford's with apbt in them, and plenty apbt's with staff back in them...

They weren't available... And they were improving what they had

      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.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      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.

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.
