So she’s 1yr old then 🤦🏻‍♂️Tbh what is the point in putting pups on the ground out of a young bitch that will be producing a none conventional cross 🤷🏻‍♂️

That’s not my point I was getting at fella my point is what’s the point in putting pups on the ground out of a bitch that by next year would of only completed one season work ? by one season you can’t honestly know if a dogs really got what it takes to be a useful seasoned worker when it’s still learning it’s trade.shelters are full of dogs were people have sentimental bred dogs it’s a pointless exercise Mate. what will this cross offer that a work bred whippet hasn’t already got in hand ? unless there only being bred for money 🤷🏻‍♂️ Your dog up to you what you do with it at the end of the day but highly doubt there be a que of people that work dogs taking a risk on a pup tbh there be avoided like the plague until there’s some seasons behind the bitch

Harry I don't mean offence buddy but poxon is spot on and I bet that if you did breed a few of those friends would drop out of owning a pup it's hard enough homing  pups as it is

Same as the others said.

Prove your bitch and you may be on to summit. After all it's your responsibility.

Does it make the pups any better if the bitch works underground ? After all a whippet x border Lakeland isn’t going to go to ground... it’s a ratching dog, bred to hunt rabbits ect. I fully understand the bitch has to be a mature dog to breed from.

You couldnt really go wrong with a terrier x whippet. It doesn t need be a season veteran to breed off

 I was told the same lie years ago you can’t go wrong with a terrier x whippet

      Hi, I have a 5 year old JRT and he seems to be Keen on the ratting and rabbiting and I am just wondering would he still be keen on the Charlie’s? Bare in mind he’s tame though. So I was just wondering if anyone could help me please?

      Hi guys 
      So I've got a lurcher, loki (lives up to his name) lovely boy gentle nature. Softie and is so gentle with other animals great with rats kittens the lot I just cannot fault him. 
      Loki is 3 years old this April 6th.
      So when I got loki he was a pup, 8 weeks. He was socialised with young and adult dogs from a young age and gradually left for short to longer periods of times with toys and other entertainment ext. All done properly. 
      Also when left as a young pup he was at work with me in a crated area in plain site of other dogs too so he wasn't on his own as such. He was always quite unsettled however even with food and toys he just wanted to be with me. 
      He would be left for 20 to 30 to an hour and so on gradually. I worked at a vet practice and every one kept their dogs there. The dogs were all walked twice a day on our breaks and it was all a dog friendly happy environment he was just always wanting to be with me however which is what may make sense with what I describe later on in this statement. 
      As he got older walks would be around 2 hours or so along side my chihuahua haha both love long walks in the wilderness (Hampshire woodlands and open fields ext) 
      Loki was slightly involved in some starter racing when he was 1 and 1/2 years and entered some showing. I kept him in tact because of the showing and racing and was advised that it was best to but I wasn't one to not have it done if it should have been. 
      Anyway trying to cut this as short at possible.. 
      So I had to leave work due to personal reasons and change jobs which meant loki having to be left at home and our routine changed. He began to soil and wee in his crate which I'm positive was due to anxiety as he wasnt left more than two hours in it (a friend would come by the house and let him out) and I myself would come home on my lunch break and let the dogs out. I can only assume that his anxiety of me leaving the house and him crated without other dogs in site may have caused anxiety and in tern messing in his cage. 
      I made a decision to try him out of the crate just because of him being in his wee and poo and restrict him to a room or the house and then came the mess, the damage and the continous soiling and wetting around the house. 
      This dog has cost me alot of money and repairs. I'm at my witts end even though I love him to pieces.
      Ive looked into training but to be honest i stupidly thought maybe i could read up on it and fix it myself but I ended up suffering illness for a long time which lost me another job and has been a bar on my own active life which has made me feel so guilty. 
       
      His recalls have always been a hard one just because of his breed he's so high wired too. 
      If he sees another dog he is so so interested, lunges launches and dives and off lead he just runs and runs and runs and will wrestle dogs not hurt or bite them but play roughly _ I'm thinking maybe his hormones have increased, less active walks. 
       
      The destruction in the house I think is anxiety as he won't do it if I'm home or someone else is as soon as we pop out from 20 mins up to couple of hours the house is ruined. 
       
      As I said he's a lovely boy and it's not entirely his fault to be honest it's probably more mine. Maybe I've done something wrong on the journey and missed something. 
       
      I don't want to rehome him or get rid of him because he really is my dog and I love him and want the best for him and I am ready to pay for the training or take on tips ext. 
       
      I haven't written this for any criticism just positive criticism and help if at all possible. 
       
      So despite the facts and story I'll just highlight the problems below and if anyone knows anyone whose a good trainer, books, videos or just any tips I am 100% willing a commited to putting it right! 
      So if we base it around the following, 
      *soiling and wetting the house over night or when left (on occasion) 
      *not so good with recall
      *highly destracted 
      *destructive and will cause damage if not with him 
      *will raid the bins 
      *on walks will wrestle and play roughly with other dogs if off lesd and will bark lunge and dive on the lead if he sees them. 
      *won't listen well on walks as he's so interested on the dogs and everything else. 
      *anxious at times 
      *fully in tact 
       
      Thanks guys
