DOG LURE COURSING

Lure chasing for dogs, everyone has a blast!

Dog lure coursing is a humane sport that makes use of a lure—usually a plastic bag, that is pulled by a motor around a course of pulleys. The dogs chase the “lure” and have a blast doing it.

We will allow dogs that know each other well and are friends from the same household to course together. We use plastic pulleys for added safety. Lap dogs are often passed over for dog sports but Cavalier Sammy and Papillion Bella beg to differ, both dogs are thoroughly enjoying trying to “get it.”

The American Kennel Club (AKC) offers dog lure coursing for all breeds of dogs including mixed breeds. To learn more about the AKC program visit:  AKC offers a titling program for lure coursing dogs.

The United Kennel Club (UKC) also offers a dog lure coursing program that includes titles. Some unusual breeds are registered by UKC enabling them to earn titles for lure coursing.

There are many groups forming across the United States for the lure coursing addicted and Courteous Canine, Inc. is open to hosting competitions, club practice sessions or providing demonstrations.

Introduction to Lure Coursing Group Class

Introduction to Lure Coursing is ideal for dogs that have never lure coursed before or who are needing more exposure to get optimally addicted. This one-time class lasts 90-minutes and is limited to 8 dogs.

We recommend that you have your dog checked by a vet and cleared for lure coursing as it is a high speed activity.

Our lure course is for pet dogs. It is not suitable for racing Greyhounds and Whippets, or dogs that are prone to overheating. Thank you for understanding!

We have a great Aussie Mini who loves CC. He’s a natural on the lure course and can’t get enough of it. The staff are excellent and they assure all the dogs get a chance on the course. We’re going to get him into the agility program and see how he likes it.

Was interested in trying out the lure training and ended up speaking to a young lady named Melissa. Very insightful and welcoming environment

We took our young Italian greyhound for lure coursing. He had a great time. We will definitely go again.

I took my fur baby, Kayli, to lure chasing. She was more interested in running to see the other dogs than to chase the lure. She caused some of the other dogs to become upset. Angelica the instructor was awesome, she made me feel comfortable and welcome. I have been to other training facilities that make you feel very unwelcome. But, Angelica went above and beyond to make Kayli’s experience a positive one. She stayed after class to give Kayli a chance. I love Courteous Canine. I am now taking another one of my pups to the tricks class. Awesome place!

My dog loves the lure coursing. Courteous Canine, Inc. does a great job and we have a blast every time we go.

Went to a Fun Lure Course class and was very happy. The field and set up were great. Freshly mowed soft grass and no turns less than 90 degrees. I will be back.

LURE COURSING SAFETY NOTICE

Prior to Lure Coursing please obtain permission from your vet that your dog is healthy and fit enough to play. Lure coursing is a highly intense activity. If your dog has a history of liver or kidney damage, or has a history of heat stroke, exhaustion, or any other serious medical condition, do *not* lure course your dog!

We recommend Sight Hounds such as Whippets and Greyhounds be limited to coursing during the months of November through February preferably early in the day when it is cooler.

Dogs that have pushed-in faces may *not* be suitable for Lure Coursing, please check with your vet and recommend you book Lure Coursing early in the morning.

*All dogs* need to walk the course prior to chasing the lure, ensuring that dogs and s see the set up and the location of trees, fencing and the Lure Boxes.

Please look for signs of heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and dehydration at all times. Labored breathing, staggering, vomiting and runny stools can all be symptoms of a dog that is overheating. Dogs with a history of overheating during intense activity should *not* lure course. If your dog is possibly overheating please note the time of the onset, the vet will need this information!

More signs of overheating are: “feverish” feeling in armpit and inner thigh areas, sticky gums, excessive drooling, bleeding gums, excessive panting, a white tongue, a change in body shape to accommodate heavy panting, wobbly legs, collapse, delirium, vomiting, any unusual behavior. If you observe any of these signs in any of the dogs please immediately notify your instructor!

We recommend that parents monitor their dog’s respiration rate and body temperature as instructed by their vet. A body temperature of more than 102-degrees for large or medium dogs is commonly thought to be unsafe and requires medical attention small dogs usually have higher baseline body temperatures. Know what your dog’s normal body temperature is so you can identify overheating.

Please immediately report to your instructor any dog that you think maybe getting too hot, including your classmates’ dogs.

If your dog gets overstimulated while watching Lure Coursing, please ask your instructor to provide you with a zen panel, this will block your dog’s vision and may help you keep them calmer.

Immediately report to the instructor if your dog or any dog is *not* drinking water. Dogs drinking water is essential to providing a safe lure coursing experience.

Puppy pools and hoses are located in various places at our facility. Please ask your instructor to show you where they are located. We can provide cool wet towels if needed.

Thank you for helping us keep your dog’s Lure Course experience fun and safe!
