Lurchers and sighthounds have seen a huge rise in popularity over the past 40 years, and where once the lurcher was the shadowy, unseen tool of the poacher, it now enjoys a more legitimate role as a modern day pest control aid, as well as being valued as a companion and family pet. The pure sighthound breeds have always had their aficionados, whether as workers, pets or show and racing dogs; this book is written with all running dogs in mind, the term by which the author refers to lurchers and sighthounds alike in this book. Running dogs are athletes, which need committed care and understanding if they are to remain sound and healthy in their work, and the author has drawn upon her many years’ experience with working lurchers in order to compile a useful reference book for fellow owners. Written in a down to earth style this manual explains how to rear, feed and prepare the running dog for a healthy life, whether that involves strenuous work, competition or as a companion animal; how to avoid injury where possible and how to recognise specific types of injury when they do occur; how to treat them yourself and when to see the vet.
Through the book, the reader will learn how to live happily with their lurcher at home and in public. In particular they will learn how to establish a sound recall so that their lurcher can be exercised, with confidence, off the lead.

The lurcher has been with us for thousands of years. Large or small, rough or smooth, images of lurchers have appeared over the years in paintings, in tapestries, or on pottery. What is the attraction of these dogs? Perhaps it lies in the strong bond that must be formed as a result of the close working relationship a hunting dog must forge with its master. From selection of a suitable lurcher to fitness, training, working, and breeding Understanding the Working Lurcher offers sound, common-sense advice based on years of experience.

Sets out the essential physical and mental characteristics that make a successful lurcher Author Colonel Hancock has been described as "perhaps the most important living writer about dogs" This is Colonel Hancock's eighth book about lurchers, the hunting dog of the humbler hunters. It covers not just the origins, uses, structure, breeding advice, blend of breeds, and foreign counterparts, but the wide patronage of these hybrid talented hounds. This is a book for the hunter, the person interested in what the lurcher does, and covers many aspects of this hunting breed for the first time, all lavishly illustrated. No previous book has covered comparable hunting dogs so fully; no other book on lurchers evaluates so deeply the value of the breeds contributing to this hybrid hound.
