I take it as standard that the folk that do more with their lurchers and terriers are not the better known folk and im happy with that.Some folk will do more in one day than others will do in a month,thus some terriers that have worked for a few seasons will never see a seasons work.My Bedlingtons that i have here now are worked far less than my lads,he is out 2 or 3 days a week,season after season,as i mentioned earlier his eldest terriers have about 12 seasons,between them,of getting out and grafting,often below on a regular basis over many a year.That to me is serious graft.He accounts for his fair share,a share others seem unhappy about because Bedlingtons are involved.

A good dog to me is a good dog regardless of it's breed and I always like to see a good dog  work but likes been said quarry and location play a big part Morton and you could always say about the standard they actually work at that May suit some but not others we all have different views as you know

A dog is a dog... If it does the job, then it don't matter whats in em👍 There's been all sorts added to all the working terrier strains over the yrs....to improve  Colour, coat, conformation and

Different land different type of earths different types of terrier work, that’s why I never knock another mans choice of dogs if they make the owner happy who gives a toss,

I think you could bring back a lot of terrier breeds within 5 or 6 generations to be decent workers if you were dedicated to doing that,even from show stuff.

Your joking ain't you I'm a bit simple so I cant anticipate sarcasm.

Serious,I had Aust silky terriers when I was young,a dog never ever bred for much except looks.The first dogs were barely interested in a mouse hole but I persisted and they eventually became good ratters.By the fourth gen the dogs were great ratters and used them for bushing and they would flush foxes from dens.I really think you could resurrect some of the old working breeds the show people have ruined.Later I had a cairn terrier off show dogs that itself did similar work with little encouragement,not to patterdale standards but who knows after 5 or more generations.I've noticed pups from non working line whippets seem to know the rabbit game a lot better after 1 generation working.
