Does anyone on SD have or breed Teckels, as I am thinking of taking of an addition to my GSP (Woody), he is a great dog & I am sure that his faults are in most cases my fault with his training, I just find him so bloody head strong in as much as that he is the one that is doing the hunting & I am just there to help out kind of thing & tag along with him
Woody's a great dog, a real help with tracking & will sit under a highseat in the grass for hours, but at 60lbs in weight he's a bit bloody big to take up a seat to sit in your coat-let alone the fact that you would get liked to death, he is 7 years old now so he has many years left in him but I would just like to have another younger dog to train & have up to full opperational status so that whe the wood dog is getting too old & creaky to get out of his bed at 3am-that I do have a fully trained youngster ready to go.
In addition in most cases I have myself & at least 1 other of my lads out most days stalking on some of our ground at the same time so both dogs would see plenty of field time anyway.
I have never owned a Teckel Hound before but understand that they are great for tracking in that they are much smaller & in the scent line at ground level.
If anyone has any experiance or knows of any litters due than I would be greatful, I am based in Hampshire Area.
