LURE  COURSING

This is a sport which utilizes a whippets sight as a main skill in the hunt.  White plastic bags are used as "the bunny" which leads to the chase. A well designed course is put together by a lure operator with the safety of the dogs first and foremost. The whippets are judged on speed, agility, enthusiasm, endurance and follow.
