Post Whippet x Bedlington Terrier advice

Hi, Im new to the forum and hoping for some advice about the Beddy/whippet cross breed. I have my name down for a pup in the spring (only a twinkle in the eye at the moment!). Shes a lovely little dog who lives just round the corner and she is being mated with another b/w cross with results we hope.

I have had the priviledge of looking after a lurcher before and she was a gorgeous girl but very strong and we decided to look for something smaller that I could actually hold onto when a cat or squirrel emerged from the undergrowth! Sadly, our days as holiday hotel for Tleaf were numbered as she had to be put down recently and we do miss her visits.

Can anyone advise me about b/w cross, the mother seems very placid, can be walked off the lead she is so obedient etc, but any more tips would be appreciated. Im wondering if they are a bit fiesty, I keep seeing comments suggesting this and even one saying dont get one.

I look forward to hearing from anyone in the know on this

Re: Whippet x Bedlington Terrier advice

Hi

I have a whippet x bedlington called Ella. They are very special dogs with lovely temperments.

Here is some advice from my experience about the breed.

They need allot of time especially during the puppy/adolescent period, as they are very intelligent dogs. If ignored Ella used to frequently escape out of the catflap and explore the village.

I spent hours apon hours training re-call, but be prepared even after all that hard work if there is something more interesting around the corner you may as well not exist. I try to walk in big open areas, if I go into woods she disapears for up to 45 min at a time, chasing deer etc. The record is 2hrs.
This breed needs to run so training off the lead is essential, they also benifit from play with other lurchers etc. You will find that you don't have to walk miles, it is such a wonderful site to see a lurcher at top speed galloping across a field. If they don't get to let off steam they will be unbearable in the house, you won't get a minutes peace.

Ella is not treat or toy orientated which made training very difficult.

Make sure you introduce them to cats and other dogs from an early age.

Ella has a very thin coat and gets cold very quickly (I have seen the breed with a thicker coat but just be awear of this fact).

Ella hates the rain, in fact she's not keen on any form of water.

I hope this has been helpfull, it is not an easy breed to train and look after but if you put the time in the rewards are fantastic.

Just a note, the reason there are so many lurcher rescues is the simple fact that people find they cannot cope with them or havent the time. Allot of blood, sweat and tears went into making Ella the superb dog she is now. Seriously think before getting a lurcher.
