Only ever bought in and get my bitches spayed early on. I’ve thought about it in the past, and I’d love to, but I’d be too worried who I sold them to....I’d sooner gift to people who can be vouched for.....and to be honest I know very few people been the socially uncomfortable person I am.

At present I have a total of 30 odd dogs ,amongst this number are some great dogs brought on to be used to get the job done one out  .Some are pure bred ,but most are crosses of some type or other ,working lines of 25 years plus .Target is only hares and rabbits,no foxes  in Nz.It is my view that good dogs are found in any breed regardless of breed however the breed must be fit for purpose .I've known some as  pups that they had or have the x factor  and once broken it they went on to be hard workers .We only breed the best with the best, most times this results in a dog that's ok(fit for purpose)  ,even good but every now and  again we get a real champ ,easy to start as pups ,hit top gear quickly so I give them one out work that brings the very best out and has them doing the whole job of working heavy cover ,flushing ,catching and retrieving.We have a small group of "rabbitters " who share the blood lines and keep most of the pups in house only offering the odd pup outside our group.  We try to cross breed to get a dog that's as good if not even better than both parents. Since ESS have been mentioned in this post ,I have,several pure ESS, ESS x JR, fox terrier x whippet ,RJ/terrier mix ,pure whippet,JR, to name just a few ,and I think a good dog is just that regardless of breed.

It would be great to hear more about your dogs in NZ.

Are there good populations of rabbits and hares with you?
