BEGINNING & INTERMEDIATE CLASSES START SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2015
Starting class dates subject to change due to factors such as weather.
Lure Coursing is offered as a pay as you go recreational event. In other words, unlike the class structure of agility, you only pay for Lure Coursing on the day that you attend. With Lure Coursing, you can sign up anytime! Check the website before coming to class - in the event of a cancellation (heavy rain), we will post it at the top of the home page. Currently, Lure Coursing is scheduled for June 14 & 21, July 12 & 26 at the Fairgrounds in Ferndale.
You can usually tell how a dog will react to lure coursing early on, unlike agility. As a side note, we often see dogs who struggle early in agility blossom as the class proceed. With Lure Coursing, you can usually tell if your dog is interested the first time.
Like our agility classes, our Lure Coursing is outdoors, on grass and the course is fenced in. We want our clientele to be able to relax and enjoy the sport more without having to worry about their dogs ever suddenly running away.
Intelligent Agility is always concerned about your dogs’ safety. So when your dog begins Lure Coursing, the first course is short in order to allow for them to stretch out. As your dog builds stamina and gets used to more sudden turns, the courses become longer and more complex. It’s tempting to want to immediately get out to the course and watch their dogs do long runs, but this is dangerous for any dog. This is for the safety of your canine companion. As always, safety and fun are our topmost concerns. Having said that, we think that everyone watching their dog respond to the shorter courses of beginning lure coursing will find watching their dog chasing the lure quite exhilarating! It's all about you and your dog having fun!!
