@donc - Age to compete for AKC and ASFA lure trials is 12 months of age
Thanks. Seems odd to me to have the same minimum age for Fast Cat and Lure Coursing. The latter will put a lot more stress on the dog than the former. Then again, large dogs and small dogs are not the same, so having a good age requirement would be difficult to come up with.

@julie4444 - What happened that she needed surgery? Where is the incision? In most cases they will not bother the surgery sight... I have made home made collars that work quite well... While I don't post pictures here, I can show you via email. My link for email is on my website below. Note that Vets will advise for a cone.... just part of their normal solution... but not always really necessary.
