Anyone ever worked a deaf lurcher by any chance?..reason behind the question is I’ve bred a retired dog to a Merle bitch an I took my pup from it the biggest of the lot black and white with two ice blue eyes but I’ve noticed he can’t hear anything bangs or anything like that there’s only a odd reaction to some stuff but his eyesight is 100% very good eyes. I’m just curious because it’s all I have from this old dog and I was thinking could I use the pup lamping and out with terriers any info be [BANNED TEXT]. The father was not Merle only mother...

Hi,..I've owned and worked a  couple of Bilaterally Deaf lurchers,...it was emotional..🙄

For a working dog, not having full command of its faculties is a definitate handicap,.even more so if the malady causes the animal to be a bit on the nervy, spooky side.

Schooling such animals is always going to be difficult, and as such it requires a whole lot of thinking, 'outside the box'....

Personally,...its an experience that I would not wish to repeat....🤔

Should be ok lamping but ferreting I wouldn't bother they usually hear the knocking and end up finding the hole they'll bolt from. Your a better man than me giving it a working chance ignorant dogs are my pet peeve and a deaf dog would be an absolute ballache. Good luck with the dog hope it goes as well as it can for you 👍

To me its not going to work out just think of the vocal commands we say to a dog, recall by name(or by whistle or both with a pup)sit,stay,back, heel,no etc or which ever command you prefer,so in my opinion sadly its not to be,atb.

Are you sure the eyesight is 100%, as you probably know deafness and bad eyes go hand in hand. If so the dog should do alright lamping but ferreting may be testing.

Yes his eyes are 100% I know because he’s acts on visual all the time and he’s retrieving a dummy at the minute so couldn’t see him having any eye problems.

Out of curiosity how did the dog or dogs that you have had deaf get on did they turn out much good if so?

Phil did you find the dog would look at you more for a command or direction than a dog with normal hearing..or change it's behavior in any way to try and compensate for the loss of hearing...

Ive found my dogs on top of a burrow sense and feel a lot coming through there feet.i would imagine switching to using it's feet a lot more on a real gusty day instead of it's ears on a calm quiet day.

How would you compare a dog waiting for a bolting rabbit with and without hearing..

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
