About the Author

Helen Hansell grew up on a Welsh hill farm and qualified and worked as a gamekeeper on a commercial pheasant shoot, trained a variety of working dogs, and learned how to fly and hunt with hawks. She lives on a smallholding at the foot of the Black Mountains with her husband and four children.


"This is a book which, as suggested by the title, tells you pretty much all you need to know about working your Whippet. The invaluable information and useful tips which fill this book can equally be applied to lurchers as to purebred Whippets, and can only have been learnt by lots of practical experience with dogs. The book is easy to read with good pictures throughout and, all in all, is one of the most comprehensive books on the training of a specialist rabbit catching dog on the market. It's worth every penny and deserves a spot on any lurcherman's bookshelf". Countryman's Weekly; "All you need to know about rabbit control the fast and natural way... In her new book on the working whippet, former gamekeeper Helen Hansell has brought together everything you need to know about these dogs including advice on choosing a puppy, training them for work both at day and night, as well as a very useful chapter on breeding the dogs... If you've got a rabbit problem, this is the book for you". Shooting Times; "There are good chapters on getting started, basic obedience and doing things the right way, which flow smoothly along, revealing an understanding which only comes from experience around working dogs... this book is good value for money and worthy of a place on the shelf of any rabbit hunter." Earth Dog Running Dog; "This invaluable guide is illustrated in colour throughout and chapters include an introduction to the breed, what to look for in a puppy, feeding, working, teaching skills needed in the field and care of the working dog." NFU British Farmer & Grower
