Coursing pics

Yesterday we went coursing. Tillo just loves that game! 😃

Tillo's first course:

Got it!!

Second course, together with Isha, a basenji girl 🙂 Tillo looked huge next to her.. gg.. Tillo does have to loose a pound or two.. Working on it..

Tillo wondering who the F* is running next to him..

Almost at the finish. Isha was already there, because she decided that girls don't have to run the whole course.. :rolleyes:

After the run 🙂

Those are great shots! Looks like Tillo loves coursing.

Great pics. I didn't realize Tillo was such a tall boy.

You mentioned that Isha cut the course short. I read that that's one of the problems when running a Basenji multiple times on the same course….they remember where the 'bunny' was previously sighted and cut the course to wait and intercept. Have you seen or experienced this?

They change the course after the first run, so they can't remember how to run. The dogs do know that the lure won't leave the field.. And sometimes they think they can 'outsmart' the lure, but 50 % of the time they're wrong 😃 There is an Azawakh that runs in front of the lure.. Pretty funny to watch 😃

In this case Isha just stopped, turned around and ran to her owner 😃 Like she was saying: '500 m is just enough for me' :rolleyes:

Thanks for the info, Janneke. BTW, Tillo looks great, just a sturdy boy–or as I say with my substantial female, formidable.:D

Great pics, Tillo looks as if he was worried there for a minute that Isha was catching him up 😃

Great pictures and commets too. I love th eone of them running along side..full fledged race..

Looks like they had a great time.

Looks like fun. My Bs would love to do that. It is instinct or must they be trained?
