Lurchers and sighthounds have seen a huge rise in popularity over the past 40 years, and where once the lurcher was the shadowy, unseen tool of the poacher, it now enjoys a more legitimate role as a modern day pest control aid, as well as being valued as a companion and family pet. The pure sighthound breeds have always had their aficionados, whether as workers, pets or show and racing dogs; this book is written with all running dogs in mind, the term by which the author refers to lurchers and sighthounds alike in this book. Running dogs are athletes, which need committed care and understanding if they are to remain sound and healthy in their work, and the author has drawn upon her many years’ experience with working lurchers in order to compile a useful reference book for fellow owners. Written in a down to earth style this manual explains how to rear, feed and prepare the running dog for a healthy life, whether that involves strenuous work, competition or as a companion animal; how to avoid injury where possible and how to recognise specific types of injury when they do occur; how to treat them yourself and when to see the vet.

A passion for working lurchers has been the driving force behind this book. With many of their traditional skills now difficult to uphold within the law, there is the risk of losing honest experience of what lies at the heart of this tremendously versatile working dog. The author writes from the perspective of one who really has seen it and done it in all its glorious diversity, and has clearly loved every minute. With a wide and detailed background of training and entering to quarry, the author shares fascinating details and tales taken from her own days and nights of hunting with lurchers from the south coast to the northernmost tip of Scotland. Easy to read yet outstandingly informative, this book allows us to look over the author's shoulder and watch lurchers prowling round buries, working through thickets or stretched out at full pelt across open landscape. This book is for everyone who wants to know about lurchers working where results really count.

This rare book was one of the few early 20th century dog books to deal solely with the true `Working Terrier'. Now very scarce and much sought after in its original limited edition,we have reprinted it in a high quality hard back format. Written by an expert in both breeding and working terriers, the book is packed with practical advice, and includes many original photographs of terriers in action against a variety of quarry. J.C. Bristow-Noble was well known in his time as a breeder of top quality sporting Terriers. He spent many years experimenting with cross-breeding Fox Terriers and Sealyhams with other dog breeds and occasionally with famous mongrel Terriers, before finally concentrating on Jack Russell Terriers, always keeping the description of Russell's famous "Trump" in his mind's eye. His ideal sporting terrier for entering to badger, fox and other quarry was a thick-set 14 pound, hard/dense coated dog with a muzzle of moderate length and an even and fairly thick jaw bone. This rule of thumb eventually led to him owning a kennel of working dogs second to none and well-known throughout the country. His Terriers were regularly sold for sums in excess of £50.00 - an enormous sum of money in the early 1900s. His stud dogs were also much in demand even at his minimum stud fee of 10 guineas. Contents include: The Correct Type of Working Terrior; Ratting; Badger Hunting; On the Use of Terriors Against: Otter, Fox, Stoat, Rabbit; On the Use of Terriors Against Moles; On the Care, Choice and Correct Use of Ferrets; Some Diseases and Their Treatment.
