1. Lure Coursing
, injury risk, importance of health and conditioning of the dog, your first trial.......
HOW TO GET STARTED IN LURE COURSING by John Parker Lure coursing is a humane sport which re-creates the chase of the hare by the pursuing hound. The "bunny" consists of strips of white plastic attached to a continuous loop line that runs through a series of pulleys to simulate the zigzag path of a rabbit on the run. No wagering is involved; the dogs run for fun and the occasional ribbon or trophy. Coursing is not merely a race. Greyhounds and the other participating sighthound breeds are judged not only on speed, but also on enthusiasm during the course, agility in making turns, how accurately they follow the path of the lure, and their endurance in completing the course. This article is intended to provide step-by-step suggestions for getting your Greyhound started in lure coursing in a way that will help you avoid some of the pitfalls common to coursing newcomers who "leap right in" without adequate preparation. It is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise on lure coursing, nor does it describe the only way to get started in the sport. It is based on my own experience in lure coursing, numerous discussions with coursing veterans whose experience goes back many more years than my own, and the experiences of a number of Greyhound owners whom I have had the pleasure of mentoring in their "rookie year." About Injury First, a word about injury potential is in order. As with any athletic activity, lure coursing does hold some risk of injury to your Greyhound. To put that risk in perspective, however, a Greyhound free running in your back yard also runs the risk of injury, and if your yard has trees, rocks, holes, stumps, etc., the injury potential there may be greater than on the more controlled environment of a flat or gently rolling pasture that has been converted to a coursing field. Although you can't completely eliminate all risk of injury (in coursing or any other sporting endeavor), following the suggestions below can certainly help reduce that risk.

2. Country Pursuits Today - Coursing
This page describes the field sport of coursing the testing of the speed and agility of the greyhound with the hare as quarry. coursing. coursing is one of the world's oldest field sports, dating back to the time of the Pharaohs.

Coursing is one of the world's oldest field sports, dating back to the time of the Pharaohs. The object of coursing under National Coursing Club rules is to test coursing hounds, which chase exclusively by sight. Coursing rules are designed specifically to mark the speed, stamina and agility of the coursing hound. It is not the object to kill hares and, if a dog kills a hare, it does not necessarily win the course. Unlike Park Coursing, which is popular in Ireland, all coursing under National Coursing Club rules takes place in open country, allowing the hare to escape. Some grounds have special refuges called "soughs" installed to assist the hare's escape. In an average season, seven out of eight hares that are coursed escape.
The Hare
Lepus europaeus, or the common brown hare, is a larger, more athletic cousin of the rabbit and weighs between 7–9 lbs. The hare is designed for speed and its uphill acceleration is phenomenal. It has many predators, especially when young, including foxes, stoats, cats, raptors, and owls, but its deep chest, well-muscled body, strong back legs and clawed feet enable the hunted hare to be a master of evasion. The hare's sight, hearing and sense of smell are excellent, as one would expect of a prey species in the wild.
The Course
Beaters drive the hares one by one onto the running ground, in the same way as for game shooting. Alternatively, as in rough shooting, the participants and their dogs put up the hares as they walk across the fields to be coursed.

Lure coursing equipment is that which is used to create an artificial or mechanical lure (often referred to as "the bunny") which can travel at speeds in excess of 50 mph. The artificial lure is pursued by any animal or bird that possesses a strong prey instinct.
The modern day version of this type of equipment was conceived (in the US around 1971) and developed by various sighthound enthusiasts for the purpose of testing their dogs instinct and physical abilities in a competitive event. This equipment is now used by sighthound people in various competitive lure coursing field trials and racing events. The equipment is also used by other dog owners for various reasons such as physical conditioning and for just the sheer enjoyment of watching a dog have fun. Lure coursing is "funnnnn" for the dogs...they do it because they want to run fast and chase an artificial lure...they cannot be forced to chase a lure.
The equipment is now used by several zoos to exercise and condition cheetahs and African wild dogs. Falconers utilize lure coursing equipment to both train and condition their short wing hawks (those raptors that hunt game on the ground) and to perform educational demonstrations of a hawks hunting techniques and flight abilities without sacrificing live game.

About the Lure Coursing FAQ
The first version of this FAQ, a 74 line (page and a half) document, originally prepared by Marcia Cavan with additional info from Carol Mount was posted as part of the AKC FAQ. Since its scope was broadened from AKC only details, it was moved out of the AKC FAQ into an independent FAQ. However, the document quickly ballooned to 2000+ lines, making it difficult to read as a single document. This version returns to its "roots" as a FAQ for those who know little about the Lurecoursing. The Lurecoursing Homepage, with extensive and detailed information on this sport, is available at Bonnie Dalzells site under
What Is Lure Coursing?
Lure Coursing is a humane sport which attempts to imitate the coursing of the rabbit or hare by sighthounds but without the hare. The sighthounds chase an artificial lure, usually a white kitchen garbage bag, sometimes tanned rabbit skins, or fake fur strips. To set up the "lure" coursing course a line composed of braided fishing line (usually 100 pound test 'trolling' line) is passed around a series of pulleys staked to the ground within a large field (at least 5 acres).

Lure Coursing and The Retired Racing Greyhound
by judy kody paulsen
founder, greyhound companions of new mexico

ure coursing is a competition designed to test the speed and agility of greyhounds and other "sight hound" breeds as they chase a plastic bag attached to a pulley system on the ground. The course is comprised of numerous sharp turns and is usually laid out in a large open field. High speed tumbles and entanglements with other dogs or even the cable to which the lure is attached are not infrequent. This competition can be wonderful exercise for a fit greyhound, however it can also be disastrous, especially to the retired racing greyhound. Many retired racers had injuries which were responsible for their retirement. Some had injuries that went undetected by trainers, as the only symptom noted in the greyhound was a slowing in their performance rather than a visible limp or injury. Unfortunately, getting an accurate history on each dog's injury record is often impossible due to the number of trainers they may have been with during their racing career. Retired racing greyhounds need exercise, but great care should be taken to not expose them to rigorous workouts that can re-inflame old injuries. Lure coursing requires properly conditioned, injury-free animals. Greyhounds that were bred for show or pet purposes (as opposed to those bred for pari-mutuel racing) are often sounder as they have not been exposed to the strenuous, demanding schedules of training and racing at tracks. Frequent injuries are common at greyhound racetracks and often the dogs are rehabilitated and raced again, until the next injury occurs. These injuries, coupled with the shock of repeated jumps into and out of upper level crates and transport trucks can produce a dog that is hypersensitive to further insult to muscles or bones.

Lure Coursing - A Newcomer's Perspective
by lynda adame y introduction to lure coursing occurred at a Southern California greyhound rescue picnic in October of 1994. It was at this same event that I first met my lure coursing partner-in-crime (Shirley Kimball) and her greyhound Remi. Both of our dogs had been retired from the track a few months previous to this picnic and believe me, they knew exactly what lure coursing was all about and refused to leave the area until they had their turn on the course. Lure coursing is an international sport in which sighthounds compete against each other and gain points towards different championship titles. The fastest dog is not necessarily the winner as the dogs are judged on five factors: speed, agility, enthusiasm, endurance and follow. The sighthounds chase a lure which is usually a grouping of three white (or multi-colored) plastic bags attached to a line. The line is then pulled along a system of pulleys. A lure course contains many twists and turns which greyhounds will run at full speed. It is exhilarating to watch a lure coursing event, but a bit difficult to find information about this sport. Where are these events held? What do I need to do to have my dog run in one? What should I bring to a lure coursing event? As a newcomer to lure coursing, I had these as well as many other burning questions. My first breakthrough was discovering a woman named Bonnie Dalzell on the Internet. Bonnie is a long time sighthound breeder and lure courser and disperses information on national lure coursing events to anyone who would like a copy. She also maintains a
