Little Dogs... Big Fun

The Lure of Lure Racing

Dog sports are a great way to exercise your dog and have fun at the same time. One sport that is specifically limited to small dogs, and particularly appeals to terriers, is Lure Racing.

If you have an energetic little dog then this might be the perfect sport for you.

Four dogs at a time chase a fast-moving lure down a straight run, usually about 80-100 metres long. Some races can also include hurdle or water jumps.

No special training is needed for this sport, as most dogs figure it out themselves. It may take more than one go, however, to get the idea. The antics of some dogs when first raced have the spectators rolling with laughter. Some dogs refuse to leave the starting box and others run to the fence to say hello to someone they know!

DOGS Victoria has a fully enclosed track at KCC Park (State Dog Centre) in Skye. The Lure Racing and Earthdog Club of Victoria have regular meets and fun days. Any type of small dog is welcome to participate. Just come along and join in the fun!
