Lure coursing training
  • 0
  • Today was the big day!!!

    And it was great!!!!!!

    Lot of dogs, every dog coursed twice, first time we were numbers 21 (Buana and Chafuko) and 22 (Hailey)
    From number 1 to 20 the B's were screaming… they wanted to run sooooo bad.. hahaha

    De B's first coursed a "whippet" course and did it great!!! (it was a training, not a competition) Chafuko was the winner, he made some nice shortcuts hahaha They both were very fast and loved it!

    For Hailey this was the first time coursing and she had much interest but when the lure made a turn, she lost it and came running back to us (she's so cute.. hahaha)

    Second time, we could have numbers 1(Hailey) and 3(Buana and Chafuko) because we had to drive a few hours to get back home on time.
    Hailey had some more interest and ran a bit better, she lost the lure after a 300 meters and again she came running back to us (and were afraid she won't listen to us when she's of the leash... haha)

    The B's ran a real sighthound course (a longer distance) and they ran it very fast, they didn't want to stop... Chafuko almost killed the lure...(well, destroyed... there is nothing to kill about it)
    When we walked away they keep screaming untill they were enouch meters away from the start!!!

    It was great, we were invited to come training any time we want (so I think were going every time... haha)

    We weren't able to made pics (pregnant women, husband and three crazy screaming dogs..) but I believe Janneke's boyfriend made a lot of nice pics! (I hope she will post them at the forum :D there were lot of very nice sighthouds too)

    I won't say how Tillo did it... that's Janneke's story.. But I think they liked it :D

  • I took Gossy to straight-line and oval races a few weeks ago to see if she'd like it. Oh my did she ever - now when we drive past the place where these races take place she gets so excited !!!
    They don't have races until the end of summer now so she'll have to wait to get certified :(
    I'm trying to set up a lure with the fishing pole so she can practise until then.

  • yess it was a great day :D cant wait to see the pictures of Job ( Janneke's boyfriend ) that he made from our dogs too!
    we only took our galgo and 2 ibizans to the coursing, that gives us all our hands full enough haha the basenjis and our oldest ibizan hound can come the next time, allthough they enjoy the racing track too! ( the settlement of the racing track allows us to take all dogs at the same time and not having our hands full with these 6 haha )
