Lure Coursing

There will be a demonstration of Lure
Coursing given by Laura Cormier. Lure
coursing is a humane sport which re-
creates the chase of the hare by the
pursuing hound. The "bunny" consists of
strips of white plastic attached to a
continuous loop line that runs through a
series of pulleys to simulate the zigzag
path of a rabbit on the run.

After the demo, all dogs that attend the festival
are invited to try the course.

of an artificial lure.

 

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are invited

to swim across the pond in pursuit of an

artificial lure. There will be three divisions

of competition: small, medium, and large

dogs. The winner in each division will
