    They are getting an increasingly strong following.Saw a couple of very nice longhaired at the BMH tracking day seemed fairly useful as well.Lady owner did however point out that they were a little less streesful than the wirehairds.
    If I had the time, the patience,a length of chain and an anchor to slow them down I'd quite fancy trying one out

    Prof Jeannery uses them with great success in the USA. His books tell you that in detail. But it depends on what you hunt. Fine for roedeer.
    Rudi in Belgium tells me that when his group is contacted for a search most people ask "no teckels please". That might have to do with the fact that hunting wild boar is a bit too strenuous for them or it could be that they have the wrong lines. Or the simple fact that BMH and HS are simply better in long complicated tracking jobs.
    I have no experience with them but I never considered them in the UK as i do not fancy having to spend a few hours digging them out of a badger hole.

    Got an eight year old Teckel Dog. fantastic companion, scent trails like a dyson vacuum (sucks everything up, never tires and you dont have to change the bag!) easy to take up a high seat (hot dogabottle on cold days) acts like deer radar, just watch the dog..... takes up little room in the truck and house, great with kids, good guard dog........ BUT..... obstinate little git at times and, if stalking on foot tends to pull, although this has pretty much been cured with a niggeloh harness from "Kit".
    Will be in the market for another Teckel before too long (you'd think i'd have learnt!) (always taught him to steer clear of badger sets and therefore never lost him down one, not a problem)

    Am not too strong on vacuum cleaners but thought a Dyson did not have a bag.

    That said, well done. He obviously suits you. What is the longest track he has done?
