Lure Coursing

  • Coursing is the pursuit of game or other animals by dogs—chiefly greyhounds and other sighthounds—catching their prey by speed, running by sight and not by scent.
  • In lure coursing, dogs chase an artificial lure across a field, following a pattern that is meant to simulate live coursing.
  • Dogs must be able to run side by side, without interfering with one another.
  • Italian Greyhounds cannot compete with other breeds than there own, as they might be seen as prey themselves!
  • Dogs are judged based on their speed, enthusiasm, their pursuit of the lure, and endurance.

Eligible Breeds:

  • Afghan Hound
  • Azawakh
  • Basenji
  • Borzoi
  • Cirneco dell’Etna
  • Deerhound
  • Greyhound
  • Ibizan Hound
  • Irish Wolfhound
  • Italian Greyhound
  • Norrbottenspets
  • Peruvian Inca Orchid
  • Pharaoh Hound
  • Portuguese Podengo (Medio and Grande)
  • Portuguese Podengo Pequeno
  • Rhodesian Ridgeback
  • Saluki
  • Sloughi
  • Thai Ridgeback
  • Whippet
  • All dogs running in braces must wear a properly fitted muzzle while running. The muzzle must allow the dog to pant, open its mouth and breathe normally without allowing it to grab or bite onto the lure or other dogs.
  • To facilitate the releasing and retrieving of dogs before and after a race it is mandatory to keep a flat collar on the dog while it is running.
  • A sturdy yet comfortable set of racing blankets are a must for all racers. During each race all dogs will be assigned a number to distinguish them from the other racers in their heat.Each number corresponds to a specific color that the dog must wear in the form of a blanket.
  • Lure coursing events are held by a number of organizations, such as the AKC & UKC.

{azawahk}{rhodesian ridgebacks}{whippets}

Reminder that there breeds are often put down when they get injured or too old to race.

Lure coursing is something you can do with your pet for fun. If you have a pet Basenji, he would really enjoy Lure coursing. If your Basenji is really bad at it, you are not required to put him to sleep. He is your friend.

In relation to your post about dogs that are left in hot cars is it true that if a dog is left in a hot car that you can break the window? I heard that this is true but it seems like it’s not..?

I would definitely call the police, first. They can instruct you to break the window if the animal is in severe distress. But if the dog appears comfortable, they’d want you to wait until they arrive. Animal control would be the one to take the animal anyway. You can’t just break someone’s window and take their dog, even if they’re ignorant.

Or, go into the establishment the car is parked in front of and request an announcement be made for the vehicle owner to help their pet.

“During the night, one of us is peeing on the new subfloor that our owners worked very hard to install, EVEN THOUGH we are let out to potty during the night.” “She did it” “He did it.” Winston the Boston and Ruby the Jack Russell decided to show us that they were fed up with our major renovation, which included ripping up the subfloor in our house and installing a new one. It’s their special way to help us renovate.

Do you have any recommendations for dogs who are good at cuddling, but also for going running with? And good listeners :-)

The previously mentioned dogs can be cuddlers, too! Every dog is an individual; Personality is different than breed traits. While you can guarantee a border collie will need to run, you can’t guarantee it will want to cuddle, and you certainly can’t guarantee it will be a good listener.

Any breed can be a good listener with proper training. There are breeds who are known for being more independent and harder to train, so they come off as stubborn and poor listeners. But, no dog is an automatic listener, it takes work!
