Just a heads up that the 2-part article that I assisted German hunter and Trainer, Stefan Fuß, write, will appear in the Countryman's Weekly on Feb 5th and 12th.

Thanks Phil, co-writing/translating the 7 part total series was very educational. Just last week Stefan had two days on earth-work followed by a third day on a driven boar hunt where only teckels were driving/recovering the boar - just shows their versatility.

I have been thinking of a teckel for the last 12 months, this year might be the year but shooting friends have had them and they say never again!

I’ve got 2 a full grown and a pup

The full grown ( nugget) will track almost anything and like quick silver in cover and is the vehicle guard :doh: the pup.
( digger) is just starting for deer only his is very calm and structured has a good pace and very thorough

Being old now I have had a few working dogs in my time, my Teckels are a delight to have, good hunters and trackers and in the top box marked get another one ASAP

As well as excellent family dogs particularly in what they do, can’t fault mine

They are for my type of shooting and stalking and they fit that bill 100%,

Been on the Boar in France and seen them chasing and baying the Boar. When knackered they would just come up to the nearest hunter and would be picked up and put inside their coat.

At collection they would then get turfed out and find their owner.

Working dogs.

One for @finnbear270 The litter sister to our Hendrix was on a boar hunt yesterday and covered 23 km in very rough/steep terrain. She recovered one super boar but unfortunately received a wound in the process, I am sure she will recover well and soon be back out there!

I am not sure, but Gabor, her owner is hunting again today so I guess it can't be too bad. A pic from an hour or two ago

like any other working dog, putting in time to find the dog that’s suits you is very important within my work and leisure is deer, fox and rabbit, my older teckle will retrieve rabbits and find deceased foxes and deer in the thickest of cover and he bays on finding most times
my puppy is coming on extremely well tracking deer ( his only job) it’s a long haul thing and i believe you must show them what you want from them, they pick it up pretty quick as well

like any other dog leave em to their own devices and they will do just that find the level they are happy at, which would probably mean to your dislike
Gel with them and instantly they respond and do far better as a combined unit

i use my teckels to work under my rules and only for my use, i’ve got one chatter box and the other is the quiet man of the two, both of them do the job 100%

if your not sure, i would go for bomb proof lab, teckels are a sensitive breed, they are pretty good at picking up uncertainty and dislikes, but treat them right they are brilliant, hardy all round dogs and a pleasure to have alongside you

good luck

Just an update on 'Himera' the litter sister to our 'Hendrix'. Her owner (and breeder) Gabor (of Bassotto Di Corleone kennel) has had her in the boar-pen to see if she had lost confidence........I think it is fair to say the opposite! She is making a grip on the boar whenever possible and might need to 'tone it down' a bit. Certainly a good recovery.Himera apr1.jpgHimera apr2.jpg

What's the injury rate with dachs used for boar? I know that they discourage baying elk here as the dogs are easily trampled on. Perfect for driving fox, roe and red here though.
I want one, my missus is not so keen.

Not sure if there is a statistic for it as it would all depend on who recorded/reported what. I think they need common sense as much a boldness!
