Once again we will be offering exciting terrier, lurcher  and  companion dog events. Celebrating the work and close cooperation of handler and dog.

The Lurcher is a type of dog not a breed, with one of the sighthound breeds as one of its parents. Sighthound breeds include  Whippet, Greyhound, Deerhound, Sluki and Borzoi. Within the mix can be found Border Collies and Bedlington Terriers. This crossing produces working dogs that are  versatile in their use in the field. They use exceptional speed and stamina to run down game, but they also need to be highly intelligent and so make loyal and gentle family companions.

Terrier work is a traditional form of pest control and wildlife management. It involves a wide variety of different activities, including control of rats, rabbits, mink and foxes. A working terrier is a small type of dog which traditionaly can pursues foxes into the earth. Terriers need to be fast, agile, strong, and have bags of stamina.
