What is lure coursing?

The Sport of Lure Coursing

Lure coursing is a competition where dogs chase a lure around a field. The lure has a number of turns in order to simulate prey darting back and forth. Competition is limited to the sighthound breeds, so called because they hunt mainly by sight rather than scent. These breeds include Afghan Hounds, Basenjis, Borzoi, Greyhounds, Irish Wolfhounds, Ibizan Hounds, Pharoah Hounds, Salukis, Scottish Deerhounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Whippets. Greyhounds and others of these fast breeds also participate in track racing.
