they shouldnt be gunking up though mate id get some ear cleaner anti bacteria from pet shop lay dog on back pull ear back put it in massage bottom of the  ear mate then cotton ball dry after 

dont worry about nails mate if worried just trim  abit  at a time until you see a circle in the nail thats the start a the quick ive had to cut em off flush to toe before mate

what dog do you have mate 

Think its just from not getting em cleaned out fully off the bat. Last dog had a floppy ear so wasnt problem this one has pricked ears so notice they get dirtier faster.

he’s a wimp when it comes to nails can cut his pads/feet to pieces without a care go to do his nails n he hates it!

Might just be the fact that his radars just attract a bit more grime. Doesnt suffer with eyes but also doesnt dig railway embankments so that probably helps

Inkeeping with the theme...any advice on deshedding tools? Rather the advice of dog men rather than sponsored ads on google searches. My last broken coated boy didnt really blow but this new one must have sled dog blood in there somewhere with the amount he drops in summer months

I read on here to use an old hacksaw blade and it worked  on mine and he stood there and enjoyed it

Absolutely old hacksaw blade. Was shown that 40/ 50 year ago, you'd be surprised the amount of dead fur and shit it straps out, as Samrog said dogs seam to like it. For the nails plenty of walking on road etc but if you need to clip then buy decent clippers not cheap rubbish. If you do happen to cut too short and you get a bit of blood then did the claw in corn flour and it will stop almost instantly,  did this on the birds claws as well , many years ago when I bred mules and hybrids.

I tried 2 different purpose made brushes. Load of sh1te! The hack saw blade was a real winner I didn’t mind doing it at all 👍🏼

Hacksaw blade every time, tried those furminators they’re ok but I still rate the hacksaw blade better

      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)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      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

      Well lads I’m just looking for some advice on my pup if anyone can help he was jumping against a wall and fell awkwardly on his back right leg there was a little squeal nothing much out of him but he has it held up since and is limping around he’s in good enough form he try’s to run around with other lurcher but I checked it and felt it out nothing is broken that I can tell but when I motion the leg and give it a stretch inwards and outward it hurts him??

      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.
