Default Lure Coursing!

Some friends and I took several dogs to try out lure coursing today for the first time, and boy was it a hit. I've never seen these dogs this excited over anything. This is something we will definitely be doing again. I think the poodles would all agree today was one of the best days of their lives.

Wow. Looks like fun. The only other poodle I have seen do this is Finnegan, Cavon's boy. It does look like a blast! Sunny might enjoy it -- he sure wants to give the squirrels a run for their money!!!! Thanks for posting.

I would encourage anyone to try it. Honestly, these poodles did better than some of the sighthounds there. I found out that a local club was holding a practice, $5 per dog to run a couple times. Totally worth it to go out and try, and even if it had been a flop it wasn't much lost. It's so so so easy, there's no pre-training required at all. And if the dog has a little prey drive, usually they take to it immediately. It was so much fun. I can't wait to do it again!

Default The Ontario Lure Coursing Association

Almost a year ago I was in touch with a contact who was with the Ontario Lure Coursing Association. I had a notion to take Tonka out to one of their practices.

Medical issues intervened at that time so we never did get out to one . . but I still have her name and information. If anybody in Ontario is interested in trying this sport with your dogs I would be happy to pass along this contact.

We're gonna take another stab at it this season.

American Kennel Club - Lure Coursing

Lure coursing is an event which simulates hare coursing. It has been traditionally with sight hounds, but a couple of years ago, AKC opened up the event to other breeds for the CAT (coursing ability test). It's tons of fun for the dogs, in fact, I'm taking my poodle for her first practice today. I've been doing it for several years with the greyhounds.

Most states have coursing clubs, so you could maybe find one in your area.

About a year ago, Winnow posted this video . . of Lure Coursing in Iceland(?). It's far and away the best I've ever seen on the sport.
