She did the lot by 18 months just not flying into em. Rabbits and big rabbits she was mopping up no problem. 

Well that’s hardly a slow starter mate, atleast no  in my eyes, we all expect diff things but aslong as ye ain’t expecting too much off s youngster then should all be good👍

If my sole quarry was preban deer and nothing else and a big powerful Deerhound greyhound was the best choice, then I'd happily wait. But I would not be messing about that long if rabbits and hare's were the main quarry. Rabbits and hare's are one thing, other quarry is something else and not many dogs are up to it consistently.

Not telling you or anyone else how to do things, it's your dog/dogs, but wait til they're about 2 1/2 years old before you start them, you'd be surprised, and very happy 👍

Words of wisdom there shaaark😉Personally never known a dog be spoilt from being held back..... Seen loads start off flying from a young age, then jib mind😔

Pre ban... I Found having them out with the terriers in the day and letting them have a tug, run any bolters with a few other dogs having a rag on the dispatch , would always make a better dog for lamping them when the time came 👍

A cracking ole dog man once told me good pup make good adults, 3 Fcuking years 😂 dog would have grown up quicker with graft thrown at it, only excise for a dog to take that long to start lies with the owners 👍

I stand by my statement with a f1 dh/gh. - the bones of 3 years to truly know what you have.  

Might pick a fox for you at 20 months old .... that does not mean you now know you have a single handed dog that will watch the lamp, clear fences, hit ditches, slow up on turns, and repeatedly pick what gets up in front of it.

I had something similar , 

saluki bull greyhound x bull grey back to a straight grey and back to a grey again 

60 quid from west Cumbria , farm bred , for it at 18 month old after viewing the litter originally 

dog was a f***ing lunatic , mentioned him before , was a liability with anything he took a fancy too. 

Altjough when he was focused he was an absolute killer , wasn’t the quickest , turning circle of a cruise ship , no real pace but when he arrived it was like Optimus prime landing 

id never seen a dog break things in half before. 

Duke was killed smacking into a 5 bar gate at the very end of a lamp ,only had him a few months and to honest i was glad he was away as he was a c**t to kennel.

I dont see how in 2 an a half years a dog wont bump into a few bits out and about ? Ive struggled to keep 6 months old pups off stuff lol

The dog may bump into em but taking them is a different matter. 

I love the deerhound x's but for me the bull is much more advanced where teeth are. My deerhound takes em but she isn't a fox dog. She picks when she wants em

If you want a pot filling dog then you wont go wrong a with deerhound greyhound.

Depends where you are, plenty of baron or empty wildernesses to go at. Bit different in South East, but where there's Moors and mountains easy enough I guess, but yep bits and pieces is different to full on working I guess

Plenty of land in the south east, foxes are plenty full down that way

A real good bull greyhound, my preference a 1/4 bull 3/4 grey, I feel is hard to beat.

But I like the idea of a Deerhound greyhound for one job and the height would be beneficial, fancy one in the future for sure.

On another vein, a bull greyhound with good bull blood and speed, the prey drive is unreal and not for everyone I'm sure, but for me nothing compares to their do or die spirit.
