    There is no rest living in the bush. If you hunt four days a week out of seven you cant stuff around resting worked dogs,sure give em a day off and use old mates from up the road but unless you have big numbers get em working and keep em fresh and on the job they couldnt care less its what they want.

    Rest your dogs too much in the breeding season and the following season you will have less surviving lambs and your crops will be shagged. If you dont live on a farm you can rest your dogs as much as you please but you better be ready for the call when your needed or you wont be hunting there again.

    And remember, great dogs get hurt less than average ones, if you dont got what makes the cut which could be seven days straight dusk till dawn you may aswell stay home and have a cuppa.
  2. In past times I've had 12 to 15 black dogs in my kennels at a time due to going through em that fast. As for great dogs getting hurt less, well that depends on the dog obviously. An out and out hard terrier worked on heavy game will have a short life span, theres no two ways around that.

    they were bred from working fox terriers and welsh terriers, so maybe thats why they throw other colours than black & tan.
    i like those jagdterriers but you see them way too often as pet dogs around here...
  4. border vs badger (need to look to the end)


    great pics of a biddable pack,,,
    shows with the right individuals bulldogs can be directed to their opposition...

    the oppostion would be the answer to what terrier excels at that line of work...

    patts are by far the best as a whole at going to ground,,,
    the crosses get too big for that...

    the patter bull crosses are good for above ground like the jagds that are also too big to span a fox den...

    the bigger terriers do excel on coyotes,,,hogs and... BEARS... ohmi!!!lol...

    Are you a member of THL forum mate? Most of the Terrierman on there are Patterdale men though. I guess it's personal preference on what works for you. The same way a lot of the lurcher crowd are not keen on the Bull Lurcher because of it's scrapping and fighting of the prey that leads it to be out of action more than the slimmer framed lurchers.

    I was deciding between a Patterdale and a Jagd Terrier. And I really like the Patterdale for being game and their slick bulldog look. But most of what I want to hunt for are above ground so I'm going with the Jagd Terrier. Sounds like a damn versatile hunter.
