If you want to have good working dogs over along period of time, terrier or lurcher you have to keep good working bitches in your kennels otherwise your allways having to use other lads bitches to produce replacements.

My moto that is mate you get a good bitch in your kennels you need not look any where else I've had good dogs but a good foxing bitch is worth it's weight in gold

I've had dogs that kill fox but will make a meal of it this is alrite if the dog don't mind taking abit of stick but the trick for me is to get a dog that can kill quickly and efficiently with minimal damage I think that's the ticket you can fox day and night 5 to 7 times a week if you want and that dogs up for it

I agree with you there mate but I think that's because a lot of people favour dog over the bitch I can go back years ago and it was more common people had good foxing bitches

and me if i wanted a foxing was my main quarry , got to be from Generation  bred proven dogs . as you say it dont really matter what breeds are in them, but there nothing that will take pain like well bred pit, and foxing dogs get hurt, there all keen at 1st, but soon think about few times, once they been pecked few times . hope you get sorted mate, and get well bred pup or dog .

Hit the nail on the hit. They don’t be long questioning themselves..

Odd too have two dogs not wanting it normally brings out some competition have you have them a Fox too rag etc if they don’t know you want them too kill them they could be running along. Side another dog for all they know 

They were both taking foxs single handed they just didn’t stay going. One of them the whole litter jacked. Was just not a good mating no excuses for them they just were not up to the task

I think there’s a lot of lads doubling up. It’s not worth a f**k you don’t know what you have. Any half arsed dog will do it doubled up.

Could never for the life of me understand doubling up on fox, 

A lurcher that won’t take foxes by itself should never have its mouth on one.

Neither would I! It wouldn’t be coming back to them! I would rather sit in instead of going out dreading to slip the dog single handed incase it bounced or fenced, would put me in the nut house!

Seen a few dogs that try to fight with their fox as opposed to killing it if you know what I mean that's when they take a lot of unessecary damage

I only keep bitches as a rule so I’m never wanting a bitch to bred from and generally get on with them better , my blue bitch is small and a demon with foxes she can make a meal out a big dog fox but that’s lack of size not heart , the gwp cross picks them up like rabbits, she’s scary powerful 

edited to add , mine run together because it’s day time hunting not that they need each other just always got them together out hunting both have done it alone on the lamp and in the day
