What is proper lure coursing etiquette?

Keep your dog on a short leash. If your dog is very excited keep it far enough away so that it does not distract the running dogs. Don’t allow it to approach other participants dogs and “get in their faces”. Dogs that are excited by the lure may be rather jumpy and even predatory. Don’t interfere with the dogs of another owner. This includes not offering food or water to dogs that are running. Some dogs can become very ill if run on full stomachs.

Are these events appropriate places for young children?

Not really, unless you bring along a person to tend to the young children. If you are participating at a lure field course you may be there for a while and unsupervised children can quickly become bored.  Almost all the people  are there to run their dogs. Many of the dogs come from childless homes and are not socialized on children.

2. Dogs who are aggressive with other dogs are allowed but we expect you to keep them under control AT ALL TIME.
