You won’t get fashionable look with a first x , it mite be good feet , coat , and drive oh and to some they easy to get into the water and thick cover and they don’t sulk apart from that bedlingtons are shite

I dont know mate, going by what you see around the place, the beddy whippet 1st x is a running dog, much loved by upper middle class country show goers. 

What I'm saying is - I reckon you would find a lot of other terriers out there who would have much much much more to add in a 1st x breeding, and would bring the feet, coat and drive. Same with working cover.

Ive seen a fair number of handy terriers doing various things, and none of them were bedlingtons. If I was after breeding a whippet to a terrier to produce a runner, i couldn't for one minute think why id go and search for a beddy . . . . .

I’ve said it loads of times but I cannot for the life of me think why anyone would want a first x Beddy whippet or grey. I understand the lurcher to lurcher bred Beddy type runners but can’t think what you get from a first x that can’t be found better else where other than a fashionable look or commercial opportunity, or just good old breed blindness. 

Had both beddy whippet an beddy greyhound both gone now both worked well beddy greyhound was good fox dog hard game bitch beddy whippet he get stuck in he was good at catching bolts from rock pile , both marked up want to ground hunted up for fun bushed up take roe what more would you want from two little types of lurchers

I’m sure there’s good ones out there mate, I’ve seen two in the flesh. However I’m just saying, these days I don’t really see the logic in searching for a Beddy to breed a first x as there are many other terriers out there that would bring as much or more to the table in my opinion

What other type of terrier would bring more to the table then the beddy bred to whippet or greyhound other then Wheaton or bull mate

I would say there are quite a few Russel’s, pats and x bred terriers out there which would make a great x with a whippet, grey or grew.

I agree, you just don't see them available. always thought a whippet x fell, or whippet x Russell would be spot on for I need.

Also most terriers are renowned yappers

true terriers tend to yap, but I have had beddywhippets yap and beddywhippets that have been mute. heard some say yapping can come from the Whippet but wouldn't know never had a pure whippet yet.

      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

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      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

      Hello there. I have a jack Russell pup coming in the next few weeks when he is ready to leave his mother. He’s from working stock and I am hoping to try him out when he’s ready. I would just like to get some advice or pointers from people on here as to what sort of diet you think is best for working terriers? I Want to keep him in best condition I can, strong and healthy. All comments very much appreciated.
