sadly my friend I am at that stage now. mooching with little dog and single Jill in coat and 8 or 9 nets. bit of longnetting if numbers improve, different days but still enjoying it.

We’re all be at that stage someday mate it’s the inevitable. Sounds perfect tho mate   👌🏼I’ve already jacked on the numbers of ferrets I keep my old line I had going for a number of years i give them away to lads that do abit due to the decline only keeping one hob I resigned one of my big ferreting permissions but retained lamping  on there👍🏼 The hob I’ve got only comes out a couple of hand fulls a time per season just to bring pups on

Why not? if it’s being crossed with say a whippet or a spaniel or beagle etc surly it’s only terrier to terrier you wouldn’t want digging blood given the small size an being able to drop to ground if you didn’t want that risk surly for the bushing/mooching you’d want fearless blooded dogs that wouldn’t be fannys an beat around the bush if something was in cover that offered some heat you’d want dogs with bottle to get in there and get stuck in an see it head on unless your plan is bolting it for running dogs that would be my opinion any way right or wrong I don’t know 

The crosses still go 2 ground at times d probably what the bloke meant seen a 34 spaniel 14 terrier drop in a pig set on a driven day there was only 1 way to gerrit out the owners was horrified 

Was a good effort tbf

i probly worded it wrong by saying blood failed digging dogs sometimes make great mooching ratting dogs  , if i wanted one for ratting mooching bushing it would`nt bother me if it did`nt have any digging stuff in it i dont think it would make any difference  to what you want it for ,  imo 2 different types of dog for 2 different types of work mates got 2 border/russells for ratting bushing they know the job inside out  but neither have seen an earth .

that's the most accurate description of a f1 beddywhippet I ever heard, funny little dog describes them to a tee.

Do you mean the one with the hairdo in the 1st pic?

      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
