Bit of a random one.... We are about to take delivery (not in the post hopefully) of a Glen of Imaal terrier.
I was wondering if it would be possible to train a dog such as this to work as a deer dog?
The breed itself hails from County Wicklow in Ireland and are generally a very unknown breed in England. They were originally bred for hunting badgers so although they are not the tallest of dogs they are supposed to be hard as nails when they need to be.
I know there are the generally accepted breeds for this sort of thing but can other breeds work effectively enough to warrant training?
