I’ve been told to get him starting here and there at a odd rabbit at 7months and then start him properly at 12 months? wanted to here others opinions

It's hard to make a judgement on a photo, but I like to see a bit puppy fat on a pup 👍 Cheers.

Looking at that dogs lack of muscle tone flat feet and long nails I would hazard a guess it doesn’t get out much. 

I’ve never had a saluki pup with puppy fat on them. And I’ve found Salukis feet are longer and not as tight as other lurchers.. they probably have the best feet of all too..  but with regards to

Is this your first lurcher mate ? 

if so have a look at the various feeding threads on here first .

now it might be healthy as , a good doer etc but at first glance that dog looks poor as a rook .

He was the biggest out of his litter and hes only 3months, he’s dad is a top coursing dog worth a lot because of his record and I give him the right amount of nutrients daily.

take no notice mate that back leg look flat 😂 feet flat? front 2 nails could do will a little clip but that’s about all id say

i don’t think you can keep puppy  fat on a growing pup all the time unless it’s not get much excercise especially heavy saluki types pup has nice shine to it

Hard to see the all that's needed to make judgment from one 'ariel' photo.

Even harder to see how any Saluki blooded pup really looks from that same angle.

Total shite photo to he honest, and if you want any constructive feedback, you'd be better with a range of different photos, and the best of them comes from the camera being alongside your dog, not above it.

For my two penneth-worth, your pups coat looks good, as does its feet. Maybe a bit more on the ribs at that age but some desert breds never hold it after 6 months anyway. BUT ffs... Take a photo of a happy dog.. That poor thing looks miserable as feck!!

Now I know the poor cnut is destined for a life of critics and running through the slop. Not to mention 35 different owners and life under a tranny van if it ain't killing 5/5 by the time it's 12 months old... So maybe it has good reason to look that miserable but....

Put that puppy where it is happy and snap away, and then put better photos up, for better advice 👍👍👍

Feet don’t look flat at all to me, I’d say they are quite tight for a saluki type 

i said it before i’ll say it again cat foot is overrated 😂
