Letting off the lead -
Hello chaps, I was given a Powell bread bitch from a close friend who didn’t have the space nor time to accommodate. She came to my kennels at seven months, very game and unfortunately doesn’t always mix well with other dogs.
I like to be able to walk mine off the lead, have them stock broken and have some recall! But this bitch is the most pig headed thing, off the lead, her head goes down and she’s off. I’ve tried and tried to improve things but she will not listen.
Since having her I’ve accommodated for her ways and brought her on slowly, she went to work for the first time and was superb. I kept quiet, allowed her to mark on her own, go in and locate the quarry. She’s a fierce bitch that shows great hart with a good voice on her. Sadly since then she still is a sod if there’s nothing to keep her interest she’ll get her head down and bugger off, I’m finding myself paranoid she’ll vacate a spot and f#ck off across country. My biggest concern if she does it and disappears on me It could really spoil a day out. I know it’s still early days to cast judgements but I wanted to see if anyone had been in a similar place?

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)
We have a rat infestation and are looking for help getting rid of them. Our neighbour was feeding rats on thier property (!) and built up an impressive population. When she stopped feeding them they moved into our stable/barn area and there are now too many for my cat to keep up with. We don't want to use poison because of our cat and Labrador. Is there anyone around the Anglesey area with a dog or ferret that can help? Not asking for a freebee - happy to pay.
