:laugh: I like both breeds,..in fact, considering how few rabbits I actually catch with my wee, hedge busters, a purebred Herder would probably suit my needs.:thumbs:

Still your biggest fan

How are those with plenty of collie blood to live with day to day? Can they switch off while you do other things like a sighthound, or are they prone to chewing things they shouldn't and going nuts every time someone walks past the gate?

:hmm: I think with all Herding types, be they Borders, Beardies or their Antipodean cousins,...its best to only use those examples that are of good temperament...

To breed a steady critter, that does not exhibit foolish, manic behavior,..it is favorite, to choose your base stock carefully,..very fecking carefully...:thumbs:

Mouching, wandering, and raking about, is good training for keen young dogs, and keen young men.

Sad thing is, part of me thinks that sooner, rather than later,.due to our grossly, over-governed Island,..a bit of roustabout rabbit hunting, might be all that is left...

I wonder in places if even the rabbit will be available, ratting and possibly a bit of squirrel bashing if we don’t get overrun with pine martins when they release them.

I would says yas right I also believe we start at the bottom rung off ladder and climb has far has we are given to go then if we lucky we finish where we started its fair ta say our islands are well and truly  gone has we knew them ,but this the thing we keep going we crack on we do not give to this democracy we fight on itt may be a thought of no return but the memories are strong and stay with us when treading the land that's given good fruitful bounties of past this we owe  the land of forefathers and we show the way fa the youngsters has the ways of the creatures hopefull some of our past rubs off on our next generation .we can only hope.

I believe this my spots where I watch the xs bills nesting in February month ,they are few and far between ,the grey squirrels are devastating the youngsters in the nest ,if the pine marten helps to achieve a balance for indiginious  specie that's for the good I would think with a marten being indigenisation natural balance would be achieved with them,greys only good fa dog meat.atb bill

Nice sort of thing Troyboy...and a perfect visual example of the type,...but as I say,... I prefer a lot more Sheepdog influence in my rabbiting curs.

 Possibly not to everyone's taste,.I just like them to have that quicksilver basic obedience and amazing collie sagacity...

I don't really need, out and out speed,..in fact, I find it a wee bit dangerous, when hunting in woodland, embankments, factory wastelands, etc..

Just enough, will suffice, eh...:thumbs:

Phil I'm of the same mindset has you I prefer more collie blood in my dogs to you don't require all that speed to catch a rabbit speed kills.Regards Collie John

      For those not already aware, Alison Johnstone MSP (Scottish Green Party) has tabled a Private Member’s Bill, which if approved would have a severe, negative impact on all forms of hunting with dogs. It is presently out for public consultation and that consultation period ends on 15th September 2019, which is less than a month away. It’s essential that you and as many other likeminded individuals as possible respond before that date.
      Before responding, it’s advisable to read the comments and notes of guidance provided by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and/or Scottish Association of Country Sports. These can be found at: https://www.countryside-alliance.org/getattachment/cd8b72ad-d577-4523-bbcb-5b19a6e89461/Alison-Johnstone-Consultation-Countryside-Alliance-Response_.pdf?lang=en-GB and   https://www.sacs.org.uk/media/uploads/cat-252/banning-fox-and-hare-control-in-scotland-sacs-consultation-guidance-for-members.pdf
      The survey is also available online and can be completed at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WildMammals/
      It’s important to complete the survey in full (including names and addresses) and no matter how frustrating, or ridiculous you may find some of the proposals, please remember “courtesy at all times”. There's no extra points for belligerence, or for rudeness, the purpose of the exercise is to improve awareness, NOT to make any more enemies than we already have.

      Irish here considering a move to Scotland with some questions. 
      What kind of breed / mix would be best for the terrain?
      what are more important things to know regarding the laws of rabbiting / running dogs in general in Scotland?
      Is it difficult to get hunting permission?
      Best parts of the country to find rabbits?
      is day hunting or lamping more popular? 
      Thanks for any and all replies and advice is much appreciated!
