So what did you breed and what was the problem

Never bred whippets or whippet Lurchers but used to work actively coursing whippet s when it was legal when younger we used to take these dogs ferreting lamping they were bang on the money if it was there they would catch it. I’ve also worked bedlington whippets over the years our last team consisted of 3 bedlington f1 an a straight whippet my last bedlington whippet wasn’t that good tbh crap on the lamp slow as f**k one gear wonders but she tried but a handy ferreting bitch an busher not much use for any thing else I had a 26tts collie x that could do all these little dogs could do an more with style I’ve come to the conclusion whippet Lurchers are pointless unless they have a bit of size about them to cover ground

But where the lie. If he putting a whippet over border lakeland it be for nailing rats or rabbits in bits of rough and that x will do his job, cant see him going coursing with it tho

the lie is that there good When there not there talked up by crazy fools only interested in breeding them to sell an the fact you can’t go wrong with whippet x terrier that’s the lie that many have been fooled by my self including  🤦🏻‍♂️

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.

Depends on what you want from the pups. If the Bitch is good enough to face ground quarry then it brings more to the breeding than just a ratting bitch.

Well it would help if it had its second teeth before the lining earth dog or no

It does mate... if you want a dog to kill 200 rats then go on to root oout something bigger and kill it then you probably wouldn’t buy one of them pups. But for your average Joe who want to kill the odd thing then they would be spot on... When the bitch is old enough to breed.😄

But why shouldn’t all small dogs be able to kill a big haul a rats then go root out summat else😁

In my opinion the bitch should be physically and mentally mature before breeding. As for the bitch going to ground or not, does it make it better or worse than a bedlington terrier to cross with a whippet?

Wait till the bitch is at least 4/5 Yr old, by then she should of done enough and genuine lads who have seen her in action could be interested..... Nice little x for rat bashing and bushing/ferretting.... If she has killed 100 rats herself in 1 sitting then she's some dog...... That's some good amount of  f***ing bites from the scailies..... Best I've seen killing rats is a little cocker x Russell bitch...... No digging type terrier or other dog for that matter could get close to her..... Kill as many as you can put in front of her..... Seriously impressed me👍shame the lad that got her don't come on here no more, sites alot poorer without his contributions imo😔

      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
