[VIDEO] The Allure Of The Lure

Eko running on-leash with me is the equivalent of a Ford Mustang driving with a cinder block attached.  That’s why I love when I have the opportunity to set Eko loose and watch him run full throttle.  In all our adventures I have found that the best way to watch Eko run is on a lure course.  For those who are unfamiliar, lure coursing is an event where dogs chase a lure attached to a wire that zips around a predetermined track.  In the below video you can check out two lure course runs than Eko did in San Diego.  The first is a wider shot of the course and the second one gives a closer look at Eko in full stride.



Unfortunately we have not had the chance to run any lure courses since moving to Chicago but I am actively looking for somewhere to go.  I’m hoping we might be able to squeeze in a run before the end of the fall.  If anyone knows any good organizations or resources for lure coursing please be sure to let me know.  Thanks!


I don’t know if you and/or Eko ever watch “Too Cute Puppies” on Animal Planet, but in the Rhodesian Ridgeback episode they set up a lure course in the backyard and let the puppies try it out. It was (dare I say) too cute!
