Dogs on the Run

Fast dogs, a big field, and a really long piece of string. That’s about all you need to pursue the honorable sport of lure coursing – where dogs chase a lure around an outdoor course and are judged on speed, strength, and style. Wild Side Guide Craig Owensby shows us what can happen when they release those high-stepping hounds.

For general information on lure coursing try http://www.akc.org/events/lure_coursing/ which sanctions the AKC trials.
