Anyone ever do Lure Coursing with their Boxer?  Moorea absolutely loves it.  She gets all worked up when she just sees a knot in the line.

They have a lure course at the boxer bash, Kiah went crazy watching the other dogs while waiting for her turn.  This was Oct last year.

She just loved, thanks for the compliment.  Moorea is very pretty, did you create your own lure course or is that one that you can go too?  Ours was motorized and they had a plastic bag that made a lot of noise as it went around the course.  It was $1 for each circuit and Kiah did three.  All of the lure course money went to the rescue but the guy who does it makes his money on the photos they take that you can purchase.  We are going again in September.

No we didn't create our own.  The flyball team that she runs on was having a demo at a doggy fun day.  So she did her demo then we went and did lure coursing.  It was 5 dollars per dog per run.  The money went to the school that we were at.  So our Maltese did it too.  I can't wait to see pictures of Kiah in September.  Does your other dog like lure coursing?

I just got Keegan the end of March and he likes to chase birds so I am thinking he will like it too.

I think he would definitley love it.  Lure coursing really gets their prey drive going.

i would love to find something like that in my area for Binga.  she would love it.  bear is still too young for anything that requires any sort of attention span.  haha.  he needs to grow into his feet first too.

what age can they start doing things like that?  don't they have to be older to start agility?  two years?

i love the action shots of Moorea and Kiah.  those are the best.

Moorea just started Lure coursing. She will be 2 tomorrow.  We started flyball at 8 months old.  I am not sure of any places where you live.  But try to find a doggy fun day where they offer a few different sports in one place.  We had frisbee, agility, lure coursing and flyball last weekend.  You can start doing little things with Bear now, Bing should be ready for anything now.  They are adorable.

I am designing one at home as we speak for Daphne cause she is so fast and just constantly does the burns around the yard.  Once the fence goes up pretty soon I will start building it and then post pictures.

Since it is not forced and on grass, I don't think it would be too much of a problem for the dogs.  Kiah was almost 14 months in those pictues.

We don't have any fly ball close so we are going to try agility, classes starts May 21 but I understand the first class is more obedience then anything else.
