Dogs on the Run

If you feel the need for speed, you'll love what happens when these high-stepping hounds take off and follow their instincts, in a sport called "lure coursing."

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 which sanctions the AKC trials.
