A lure coursing event for dogs will be held Sunday, Sept. 11, from 8 a.m. until noon at the Jefferson County Dog Park, W5098 Canine Drive, Johnson Creek.

Lure coursing was developed in the early 1970s as a sport for sighthounds, but any dog big or small that likes to chase will love lure coursing, according to a release from The Friends of the Jefferson County Dog Park, which is hosting the event. “Racing across a field free as the wind in the quest of an artificial lure, it doesn't get any better than that,” the release notes.

Jim Perry, dog training expert, will explain how lure coursing works. Participants and their dogs will then try out the activity.  

The event is free to dogs with a 2016 Jefferson County Dog Park tag or a September 11 day pass receipt.

Small dogs are welcome.
