For me personally i cannot see past the right type of spaniel for what i do. Tho would like a pat x spaniel that isnt going to drop to ground.

Well thats the way i was looking but last time i had a spaniel was a young kid so carnt remember if they would go into tight cover most places i go is bramble but on the further wanders it can be any type of terrain. I dont it dropping in time to time but not all the time so probably best to avoid a terrier

That’s pretty much what I have got and he suits me. Have to admit I do really like a good bushing terrier though!

For the less experienced moochers stay away from to much beagle blood will put you of for life if you get it wrong lol, I'd go for the Springer x terriers good hard working honest x that don't fuk of miles away from you.

Depends how good the lurcher is,the facts are that the majority of bushers ,beagle,spaniel,hound or terrier infused will suit purpose all of the time,i prefer the Beddy bushers as they are the ones that rock my canoe and keep decent lurchers on their toes when others don,t.

If the majority will suit purpose then why would they not keep a lurcher on its toes?mine do but they not beddys

My dad and uncle have bred top notch spaniels for over 40 years. And some of the best bushing spaniels have been made out of failed gun spaniels. I had one for years that was to hard mouthed for gunwork, but excellent for mooching about. Also spaniel x terrier ideal for mooching,my uncle has a cocker x terrier and it is exceptional at ferreting.

I like the look of the spaniel terrier crosses, got a couple of leggy terriers that are happy to stay on top and if they get a scent won't stop at any cover
