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!
