Is that the dog that does be on Mikeys YouTube videos??

The only thing is where do you find a decent Irish terrier that works, to bred a lurcher, that’s not a dig. Looks a tidy dog in those videos 👍

Yes this is the dog in mikeys YouTube vids. And yes I get what your saying 100%, where do you find good a good Irish terrier in the uk? I was tempted to get one to work myself and put it to a whippet but the price of them put me off 😂

Goes to show you that some none working terriers can still produce

I didn’t say they were non working, but it’s a big risk. Well not a risk, I could imagine that it would be at the back of your mind thinking about choice of dam/sire. Will cracks appear down the line. 
Seeing the dog work on YouTube, he’s very fast and committed.

Was no risk to me with him, I watched the dam (whippet X Irish terrier) work plenty times and she is a very good dog, the dams owner also seen my whippet work plenty and asked to use him purely due to the drive and speed, he would kill himself to make a catch and has been known to run off cliff edges on the lamp in pursuit of a rabbit. So I took a pup back hoping to have a bit more coat and thicker skin and a bit more brain... he also turned out a couple inches bigger than my whippet. But for a first X I think you’d still get a good lurcher out of it even if the terrier wasn’t working, it’s not for everyone I know but I’d take the risk if I had the opportunity 👍🏻

      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

      My mate who i do a bit of ratting with is looking for a Whippet or Whippety Lurcher pup.
      Idealy he's looking for a small, fast dog that is tough enough to rat alongside terriers, ferret and lamp with.
      A full whippet would be great but one with plenty of poke and will get stuck in to the rough and tumble of ditch side ratting days on freezing open land.
      There's no rush but if anyone can point him in the right direction that would be welcome.
      Thanks.

      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
