Haha, I'd love to have another litter, unfortunately I'm living back home with my mum and step dad so another litter is out of the question till I move out. We'd be over dogged here with one retired and one non worker, 5 dogs about the place would be too many. 

The other thing is the sire got sold and I don't know his whereabouts. I really like what they produced together.

Ahh, that's a real shame - hope Simba does the business for you. I'll watch his progress with interest 🙂

The whole litter seems a cracking litter if I bred them I’d be well impressed with them tbh they’re all pretty uniform in type bitches all seem even in size an build it’s the same with the dogs in the litter there the same they’ve all been self enterers bar one I think that went to a sporting home they seem really keen to get on an work ray. Mines not keen on retrieving ray I’ve said to vicky that my bitch is by far the hardest bitch I’ve ever had to train to retrieve But it’ll be what it’ll be on the night if it happens it happens I’ll continue to train it if they retrieve they retrieve it’s not like there’s any numbers on the rabbit front any how so it’s not a must or that any of us a dedicated ferreters wanting ferreting types that need a retrieve or just for rabbit lampers For numbers I think everyone who’s got one of these pups are not dedicated rabbiting folk but wanted a bedlington x bred to do what there traditionally bred for obviously in the guide lines of the law an all that 

My bitch is a little over 12 month now. Switched on when out and lives for chasing rabbits. She is 1/8beddy, 3/8whip, 1/2grey. She won't retrieve, doesn't even show an interest in toys or dummies to allow training. Also she was doing really well on recall but more and more she just comes if she feels like it. As if she hears me call her and thinks, go on then let's entertain him this time. Seems to be going through a knobhead stage. Hoping she will settle down and do as she should. Feels like hardest dog for training I've had. She is very timid aswell which I think is a trait from the beddy and whippet in her.

Tough mutt!

He's very unenthusiastic avout toys, dummies, balls etc. At most he will chase them and pick them up, might do a little circle with them then drops them to change the game. He's had 3 rabbits on lamp, first two he brought to me but only when I left the field and he followed, the third he caught close to me so didn't need retrieving. Hoping that he'll get the idea the more he lamps that the sooner he brings it back the sooner we find another run.

The dam is a really decent retriever, not always live to hand but always comes back if she can carry it. Brings rabbits back over fences and gates and picks up partridge, pigeon and pheasant on shoots. Not sure why her pups are so different but oh well! These are bred to be alrounders and not everything needs retrieving so it's not the end of the world but it does make it easier when they bring things back.

That is same as my pup

Mines about 13months now I’m really pleased with mine I’ve stayed away from letting mine hunt for stuff over the fields for the last few months I feel there’s plenty of time for that once the season gets underway I’ve concentrated on getting recall bang on an retrieveing spot on this bitch of mine seems to really want to please me now we have made a really good bond Between us she made a complete u turn  I’m still saying she’s the hardest dog I’ve ever had to train but what I’m seeing so far with how loyal she has become an wanting to now please me it’s definitely been worth every minute going the extra mile to keep plodding on with training rather than just letting her get on an do her own thing as bad as this sounds the lock down done us a favour the recall was the thing I wanted to drum in the most  being a lamper I want that bang on But I’ve always said no recall no retrieve as a retrieve is a extension of recall

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      I stopped over at mums and seeing some nostalgia posts appearing in the forum thought I'd take a few pics of photos she has of collie lurchers I had in late 70s and 80s. I am indebted to her for helping me out on those occasions when work or landlords meant I couldn't keep dogs from time to time. She had a soft spot for lurchers and always had a rescue or 2 as well.
      I still have a first cross collie and they rate each other. He remembers where she stashes old dog toys and leads her on a tour of the house to collect them up each visit. Sadly at 91 and with Alzheimer's she can no longer have a dog, nice to see when I took along my whippet pup they bonded straight away 😀

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks
