Is Luring Right for Your Dog?

Is Luring Right for Your Dog?
Is Luring Right for Your Dog?

Does your dog love to run? Can you see their excitement - the joyful barking, the rapidly wagging tail - when they sense they’re about to go into the backyard or a dog park for a leash-free afternoon? Running is not only great exercise for your dog, but a good way to help pets with excess energy get rid of it so you don’t have to fuss with an overstimulated pet at night.

While out with your dog, you may have noticed their natural instinct to chase down something, be it a ball or frisbee, or even a park squirrel. Small animals and objects can take unpredictable paths, and if your dog is running through a vast, unfenced area this sport could turn risky. If you don’t wish to curb your dog’s desire for exercise but prefer a controlled environment, you may want to consider luring.

As the name implies, luring (or lure coursing) uses an object attached to a cord, run through a system of pulleys, to create a short course for the dog to run. Most courses are mechanized and allow the lure to take on the appearance of an object zig-zagging around in the grass. Dog clubs around the country sponsor luring competitions and recreational sessions. Care-A-Lot Pet Supply holds a monthly luring event in Virginia Beach for owners interested in getting their dogs into this fast-paced activity.

Thinking about luring for your dog? Here are few things to consider:

Safety: While luring offers dogs of most breeds the opportunity to run and have fun, it may not be suitable for every dog. It is not recommended for puppies - a dog should be at least a year old before trying a course. Some luring events may not permit certain breeds, like retired greyhounds, to participate for the safety of other dogs.

Socialization: Public luring events will draw all kinds of dogs. If your dog has trouble socializing or behaving around strange pets, it may not be the best environment. Most luring events encourage new dogs to observe only during their first visit, so you may wish to attend without your dog so you’ll know what to expect.

Health: Luring brings out the speed in a dog. It’s a workout for the legs, eyes, and mind, therefore it’s important for any dog running a course to be in good shape. Sponsors of public events may provide liability waivers before your dog can participate.

After your dog finishes coursing, make sure you take them for a cool down walk do they do not cramp or become sore.

If you live in Virginia Beach, we welcome you to contact our Virginia Beach store to learn more about our monthly luring events. To determine if your dog is fit enough to try coursing, consult your veterinarian.
