Lure Coursing

My agility trainers had suggested that Kobi and I give something called Lure Coursing a try yesterday, so we did.
Lure Coursing is a competitive sport in the states, but around here it's just for fun! A track is set up along the ground and a twisty turning pattern and a plastic bag is pulled along it, and the dogs chase it!
The great thing about Lure Coursing is it requires no training, they're either good at it or have no interest in it.
Kobi and I were one of the first to run so I didn't realize just how good he was at it. Most of the other dogs either had zero interest in it or would only chase it for a short distance then give up.
Kobi on the other hand probably would have chased that thing until the machine died.
His first run was a little sloppy for a few reasons, the biggest being he got a bit worked up waiting his turn which meant he was already tired out when he did his run.
His second run on the other hand was awesome! From the minute we walked through the gate he was pulling at his collar to go! He chased it hard for two laps before they pulled the bag back into the closed off area. However, Kobi was not done. With a glazed over look on his face he started circling this area trying to figure out where it went. When he couldn't find it he decided to look along the track again to see if it was out there somewhere.
Along the track he managed to zero in on a pivot and decided to try pouncing on it a few time to see if that would make the bag come back, and much to his surprise it did! We sent the bag out one more time to bring him back in so I could get his collar back on and let the next person take their turn.

All in all it was a pretty fun day!
