Can't Think Of A Good Title, So Hey :d

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm Ash from SA,

I'm probably here for a different reason than other members, I've joined up to research a couple of pig dog breeds with the hope of expanding my dryland racing team.. (not that one dog qualifies as a team).

 

I don't think a pig dog is that crazy of an idea, some of the best mushers oversees have some pretty interesting crosses similar to those used for pig hunting.

Also I kind of like the idea of having a dog that has boundless energy and is bred for Australian conditions, might give me a bit of an advantage being able to keep fitness up during the off season. 

I run a husky at the moment, and anything above 15 degrees is really far too warm for intense exercise.

 

If I can work out how I'll post a picture as it's easier to show what dryland racing is than to explain it.

 

Hope to hear from some of you

Probably be able to get some cheap pups if you wanted off here to. Hope you enjoy the site and our culture. We all love working dogs of any type so another opinion from a different area is always appreciated

Thanks for the welcome :)

It's so cool hearing about everyone's hunting trips.

I don't think I've been hunting since I was about 10, used to go and try shooting rabbits from the back of my uncles car.

Was never a good shot though. 

 

 

Here's an example of dryland racing. Small teams use the scooter like I am.

3 dogs and above use a custom made 4 wheeled rig.

This is the only dog I have at the moment, She's a pedigree siberian husky called 'Esky'

She also competes in weightpull events.  :)

 

The distance of these races isn't very much, about 2.5-3.5 km for single dog teams.

You are brave. I tried that with my bullygrey once and I ended up face down in the dirt

Had less accidents on bikes than scooters.

I'd love to try out some kind of staghound. Reckon it'd fly ( or do I have a death wish? )

I also reckon a bull arab would be pretty solid for the sport.
