Séko familly first lure coursing training

They just loved it even Thorn, ok! he hasn't got the speed or the nice galop of the 3 other, but still is looking for the lure, even among the dogs near the track.
Timbo was jumping in the high grass not to lose sight of the lure, that was really funny, even if it was slowing him down.
Valhi almost got the lure during the run, she is more taken by lure coursing than racing that's for sure.
Eos loves it as much as racing, the first round wasn't that good, I think she was trying to understand why the lure wasn't going round and turning so sharp.
Basenjis are really hunting dogs, and that should be kept in mind by breeders!

Paul and Bill, have an oval track dog, Chiro, #1 basenji in NOTRA last year, he too does not do well at lure trials. He rather races the bunny than catch it.

It does not appear Chiro will do so well in NOTRA this year, too many trails canceled due to a lack of whippet entries. Go figure.

I agree, "Basenjis are really hunting dogs, and that should be kept in mind by breeders!"

Laurie and I have not posted any of our show results, brags, etc. The dogs we breed are fantastic show dogs, not just lure. A properly built basenji is ideal for a fast agile courser, add the hunting instinct, good temperament, and health. This is the cornerstone to any good breeding program, to produce balance dogs beyond just balance or excellence in one aspect.

Thanks for supporting coursing.
