Default Lure Coursing!

I guess this goes in here... Squash is signed up for a lure coursing class, and today the outdoor field where it will be held had a little grand opening celebration with demos and other activities. I decided to go check the place out to see it and just get a feel for how they were going to run it before the first day of class.

He had a BLAST. It was such a distracting environment that a lot of the dogs weren't interested or lost interest in the lure partway, but once he realized what was going on he didn't think about anything else! In fact, at the last corner he biffed the turn, crashed under that orange temporary fencing (which was just splitting the larger, completely fenced area into smaller areas for different demos, he didn't end up with access to the road or anything like that) and then turned around and jumped right back over it to finish! (Which is why I look horrified, start to go get him, and then realize I don't have to.)

I'm super excited for the class because it will take up the whole area so they can do longer and varied courses and obviously there won't be so much going on. I love that they got the kind of equipment where they can control the speed so the starts and run can be really gentle, but increase speed for faster/bigger dogs.

Anyway, here we are!

ETA: Shoot, it won't embed right. Here's a link until I figure it out (or maybe forever ):
