Lure Coursing

Scroll down to sign up for lure coursing 

If your dog likes to chase things lure coursing may be your dog's new favorite activity!

Catch the rabbit!

Lure coursing is a game of chase similar to what greyhounds on the race track do when they chase the mechanical rabbit around the track, only in this case it is a string with plastic bags attached. The string travels on a path laid out with pulleys.  The string is attached to a mechanical fly wheel that pulls it around the course. Any breed can play. This game creates little doggy addicts.  It is great fun for the dog and it gives them a chance to open up and run like the wind in a safe fenced area. For dogs unfamiliar with the game, we will play with them and entice them to chase.  Not every dog will play this game and some need no introduction, they are ready to go as soon as they see the "prey" (bags) race around the course. (This course is not suitable for Greyhounds or whippets due to their speed. Our course is just not big enough to accommodate their speed safely.)
