For a great day’s fun for you and your pampered canine pet why not try lure racing? All dogs love to run and chase. Lure Racing is different from lure coursing in that it is run over a straight course of 80 to 100 metres for small terriers and other small breeds.
The dogs are raced four at a time from starting boxes and chase a lure pulled by a battery-operated machine. Hurdle races and water jumps are also included on our fun days. The antics of some dogs when first raced have the spectators rolling with laughter, some stay in the boxes and others run straight to the fence to a person they know, instead of chasing the lure. After a couple of races they get the idea and are very keen to catch the lure.
A fully enclosed racetrack is located at KCC Park, Westernport Hwy, Skye. Lure racing is conducted throughout the year at the Park. Jack Russell Terriers, both purebred and crossbred and any other small breeds can join in on race days.
Additional race days are held throughout the year at other locations around Melbourne and members are notified through our newsletter of the dates and times.
