A grew makes more sense than most as it's greyxwhippet or crosses there of no?

yeah it should, but folk(Scottish ?) use it for greyhound and I've heard it used for lurcher types??

as for traveller talk allot of lurcher men try to talk like travellers, don't know why, and travellers try to claim they started every thing to do with lurchers/coursing dogs, my granny allways talked about uncle owen like he invented poaching, but I cant remember him doing owt when we went to stop with them when I was a kid, they had a lovely spot in Cheshire its right next to the m6 now.

My first lurcher a Hancock dog was a bad dog owned by an inexperienced owner , temperament is key . You have to get along with the dog you own. A better owner would've undoubtedly made a better dog of him and my expectations were high. I've a Cocker x that I love working isn't exactly what I expected but surprises me regularly I'd have another in a heart beat. I've a lurcher bitch that is definitely keen once I get the opportunity she'll do me fine I'm sure and is easy to live with as well as seriously driven. I've seen a fair few dogs working and not many strike me as above average.  Lots of people own dogs I wouldn't want but I'm no dogman and feel it should please the owner . I know guys who put a lot of meat on the table but there definition's are different to mine . Enjoy what you got if you can't  change it , atb Joe 

Not a bad post mate....

 

As long as they put a shift in and try I'm fairly happy....I'd still like to find that real alrounder to suit everything you can throw at them in style, but to date average at most things and pretty good at some seems par for the course with the dogs I've seen and owned...

Probably the best dog I've seen for many years in the flesh is owned by a good mate who has never been on the internet...Probably tells it's own story lol

Too long in the tooth now to want the "best" dog, as long as they can still get my heart racing they'll do for me.

Cheers, D.

Another thing that must make a huge difference is the amount of game / work put in front of the dog and the time/effort to do so as well as the physical / financial/ family/work aspect. If I won the lottery and could mess about on my own estate I'd be better dogs would be better. How depressing lol. Enjoy the moment . Atb Joe

I think we could all tell a shit dog if we seen one. but with the many differences in land to work dogs and a choice of day or night work or even dogs that do a mixture of the two regular Can anyone enlighten me on what the differences between a dog  average at best is as they say and those that are real good dogs. I wouldn’t have thought the two would be a million miles apart work wise.  So what is it in a dog that in your mind makes a dog from at average at best to a very good dog. 

One mans trash is another mans treasure. The answer to your question is opinion.
