    If this mating was to take place, in my opinon , there would be no reason why you could not register them

    but im not on the bwra committee so can not speak for them

    the only thing i would say is that this cross would not be fast enough to compeate with our non ped whippets

    i know this because ive been there and done it lol

    Thanks again Gary :thumbsup:

    The litter is due this weekend and i've been offered a pup which is why i asked. Whippet isn't a show pony, he's a working (coursing) dog. Greyhound is daughter to a Scottish Derby winner but the owner wont let her on the track. I might be tempted to give it a go and see what happens ;)

    Ok, so if you want to breed a big one get a good 40lb plus 3rd generation 7/8 non ped and mate it to a greyhound and hope that the big pups stay under the 55lb weight. Has anyone used this type of mating yet?

    I've seen the dog, it is a classic example of a dog that is effected by the rule that IMO shouldn't be.

    There are 2 options, someone puts forward a proposal to scrap the rule, or someone proposes a workable alternative.

    The problem with the first is that a considerable majority voted for the rule, I think it would take some persuading to change their votes and I think the only way to convince them would be to highlight dogs that are effected. Obviously the problem with this is that it would require people to breed against the rules in order to demonstrate it's flaw. The question of dogs effected was asked last year with no response....

    A proposal with a workable alternative could be either a complete rework of the rule or a simple ''add on'' to the existing rule, for example any dogs produced from such lining that make handicap weights will be accepted for registration.

    THE EASISER WAY WOULD BE TO SAY THAT NO SCRATCH DOGS TO BE MATED TO GREYHOUNDS REGARLESS OF HOW THERE BRED

    THE REAL PROBLEM WITH THE RULE IS

    YOU CAN MATE A HALF CROSS TO ANOTHER CROSS THAT IS FIRST GENARATION TO FIRST GENARATION . PUPS BECOME SECOND GENARATION EVEN THOU THEY ARE STILL HALF CROSSES. IF YOU MATE THE OFFSPRING FROM THAT LITTER TO ANOTHER SECOND GENARATION HALF CROSS THE PUPS FROM THAT BECOME THIRD GENARATION BUT ARE STILL HALF GREYHOUND HALF WHIPPET BUT CAN BE MATED BACK TO GREYHOUND SIMPLY BECAUSE ON THERE PEDIGREE THE FULL GREYHOUND WILL SHOW UP AS 3 GENARATIONS BACK

    TELL ME IM WRONG JACKIE LOL :blink:

    I think it would wipe out any scratch dogs opportunity of a stud career. Not many handicap dog owners look towards a scratch dog for their choice of stud as it is.

    No, your right. :p

    Which is why the 55lb weight limit was also introduced at the same time.

    THANKS JAKIE MOST PEOPLE THINK IM JUST A THICK SOUTHENER LOL
    AND THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS THAT NOW PEOPLE ARE NOT USING ANY BIG DOGS 28LB PLUS TO GREYHOUNDS INCASE THEY GET A BIGGEN

    SO ONLY A HANDFUL OF WHIPPETS ARE GETTING USED FOR STUD TO GREYHOUNDS

    SO NOW THE GENE POOLS IS GETTING SMALLER LOL :blink:

    BUT IM OK COS I JUST GET ROUND IT LOL

    THATS A JOKE BUY THE WAY LOL

    Generally though, the smaller the dog, the more inbred it is. It makes sense to outcross those smaller dogs to a greyhound if you want to breed dogs for the handicap. Greyhounds do tend to throw larger litter numbers as well. Not so much arguing with you Gary, more my thoughts of what responses would be to a proposal put forward. :thumbsup:

    I'm finding all this very interesting for a newbie starting out.

    Apologies if this idea isn't workable or has been covered before but..................

    Couldn't the BWRA set up a panel of people capable of assesing dogs for acceptance? What i mean is that they could physically go over a dog put forward by it's owner that is of non ped breeding & "is whippet like in appearance" but doesn't have the current essentials to enter BWRA races?

    All current pedigree breeds started out like this and a standard was set to conform too. I know it's not quite the same as non peds are bred to race and not conform to a unified standard but there are plenty of correct size/weight/looks non peds that currently aren't eligible to register because on paper thier percentages are wrong or like mine there's no written pedigree of dogs recorded in thier background. I'm sure there would be others like myself & the original topic poster that also have dogs they would put forward for assesment based on the actual dog and not a piece of paper.

    Accepting new blood from these dogs would help increase the gene pool as well.

    (w00t) i feel cheated now if 1/2 crosses can do that,,,and in the end produce a pups that can have more grey than the pup i have

    what now do we bann 1/2 crosses,,,that wouldnt be a good move ????

    at end off the day i can run derbys , clubs and i think nnwrf,,,,,so what is the bwra thinking off??? are they just going to be diffrent and stand out like a lemon ,,,and the rest dont follow

    up here its hard ,,,some bitches dont get mated new pll,s cant get pup,,,unless they want to run 400miles for one ect,,,,but could mate to greyhound in scotland to a bwra whippet but unfurtunly the most at the momment CANT

    end off the day there isnt enough pll,s and clubs running now ,,,to make it more difficult for pll,s to reg and race,,,,wrong time wrong place to bring in a breeding rule,,,just my oppion,,,i aint bothered ill just run what i can in,,,but i feel sorry for folk who might end up wanting to run but cant ,,,or who want a pup thats breed locally and get told they cant run in certain opens due to the breeding depite there dogs being alot smaller
