    Greyhounds

    Anybody on here used a greyhound for indicating deer?
    Or anyone an expert on them are they good to train or would they naturally just want to chase everything?
    Cheers

    the best greyhounds are very short greyhound skirts on women.
    greyhound = only a couple of inches away from the hare

    Greyhounds are a sight hound and I would suggest probably not very good as a deer dog as this is a domain ruled by scent hounds, and yes the natural instinct to chase pretty much anything that runs would be just about impossible to overcome.
    They do however use them to cross over more stocky breeds for pig dogs and for "coursing" (not sure on terminology) deer in countries where it's not illegal. (Coursing is what I had explained to me by a Scottish lad where they use dogs to chase down deer in the open much like a pig dog would)

    sold a Grey Hound I used to have for pigs, used to trail bark. The guy used it down the east coast for flushing deer down off the sides and into the river and guns.

    Have a pet that is a mix of greyhound/ridgeback/staffy, looks mostly ridgeback but slighter.
    Insatiable drive to chase birds.

    Very much doubt you'll get one to indicate, will be a waste of time imo. They were initially bred for coursing deer and wolves of which they do very well. Russians still use them on wolves as do yanks on coyotes. In the middle east they use Salukis on gazelles as they have more endurance and stronger pads/feet.

    First cross greyhounds make incredible pig dogs too. Its also often a hard road training a ex racer to hunt in the bush too fyi. Alot you'll have to work through so if your going to train one up then best bet would be to get one from a pup.
