Too fast. Faster than the lure.
Past year has been a very hard one. We have lost three of our beloved wolfhounds, two due internal cancer, one due gastric bloat. And our grand old lady is 12.5 years now, having better and worse days.
She is way past her expiry date, but she is still going strong despite it all!
I have had a lot time to think about lure coursing, sighthounds, their performance in the field (both locally and internationally) and their training. Over the past two competition seasons I have had several discussions about training and working with lure coursing sighthounds, which have incited some interesting questions about the sport itself.
And I think it’s time to share those thoughts with you.
I’m not making promises. I know that as I’m excited right now could mean multiple posts in a week, only to dwindle down to one a month. So let’s assume that I’ll post one a week. It may change or not.
New beginnings are exciting and fun. Like a new puppy, waiting to grow up to the great and marvelous wolfhound!
