I too have taken my girl to lure coursing fun runs. Actually, the fun run course is typical for what a sighthound would run on a junior coursing run and is easier than the CA test which is designed for all breeds and is basically a big rectangle. My girl is absolutely insanely crazy to to this - I can't even keep her near the staging area because as soon as she hears the lure running she gets frantic to go. She does have huge prey drive and she will run the whole course, some dogs just start chasing and then give up. The dog needs to be pretty fit to do this.

I've attached a couple pics of her taken by the photographer and a video from one of the last runs we did.

Hare coursing is basically rabbit hunting with a brace or three dogs. In the US, dogs hunt jack rabbits. It's called open field coursing (not an AKC event) and is not legal in all states. I think it was outlawed in England a few years back, but folks still do it. Sighthounds hunt by chasing down their prey.

These are fabulous! Such wonderful shots, and that video is great. My camera was not capable of taking photos at the range the dogs were running. I have a Nikon d3100 but with the stock lens and the zoom just isn't good enough, so I wasn't able to get very good photos. And no video. Wish I could have!

All 3 of the poodles we took finished the course twice. It was pretty awesome. We were about the only non-sighthounds there and I think everyone was a little shocked at how well the poodles did.

Everyone's always a little shocked at what a poodle can do. They don't think of a poodle as a hunting dog, but many of them retain those instincts. It sure sounds like a load of fun! Bonnie would probably LOVE it. I know they have it around here somewhere. I should look- Nova, Sookie and their poodle friend all look like they are having a blast.

Oh, poor Echo! I hope he recovers fully. That really stinks. I bet Bonnie would really love this. Sookie had the time of her life. She never ever ever would dream of pulling on the leash, but she was lunging at the end of her leash every time the lure would start because she wanted to go so badly. She was chattering and literally trembling with excitement. And Nova we had to put in the car because she was so over stimulated by it.

The poodle friend is Shelton, belongs to "pinkteaji" on this forum. We also had a couple of labs and a couple of GSD's that came with our group, and they all did really well. I only saw one other person besides us that didn't have a sighthound, and we were there for several hours.

I bet a toy could totally do it! There was a lady there with a chi mix that did awesome. She was SO worried about the dog running off but she stayed on course the whole time and came back at the end.
