Lure Coursing Fun Run

Took all 4 dogs today to a lure coursing fun run.  It was a straight course run, about 100-150 yards ( I am guessing as I really have no idea) It was a really great way for inexperienced dogs to try it.  Magic ran first and of course had a blast_he ran to the end, shook the lure and turned around and ran back to me.  Then Grace ran, she ran most of the way, but when the lure stopped at the end, she turned around and ran back to me. I think she watched Magic.  Then it was Sirens turn and she did really well, never took her eyes off the lure and ran focused all the way.  Peace was last up, and she hadnt been outside a tthe time to watch the other 3, so she was a little less sure. I had David start her and I went to the finish.  She ran 3/4th of the way, but when she got by the equipment. lure operator and photographer she did get a bit distracted and stop.  But I called her name and reminded her to get it, and she started running again, and did zig after the lure. So all in all I feel like it was a very successful day!  Magic did grumble something about wanting more, but we had to come home so Grace could eat, so we only ran the one time.

Your area sure seems to have tons of dog activities! It's really tough to find lure coursing in my area...I am itchy to try it, but not if I have to drive 3 hours!
