Fit Friday: Fly Ball and Lure Course

In the last two weeks I have learned about two different sports for dogs, flyball and lure coursing. I have never seen or heard about these events before, but I have now witnessed flyball and was able to try out lure coursing myself.

The first one is Flyball. Here is the definition according to Wikipedia: Flyball is a dog spot in which teams of dogs race against each other from a start/finish line, over a line of hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad, then back to their handlers while carrying the ball. Check out this video from the event we watched at the Renaissance Festival:
This past weekend at the Ragom fund raising event they had a lure course for us to try out. And of course I was going to try it.

Lure coursing is a sport for dog that involves chasing a mechanically operated lure around a set course. That day to the grass was long, which made it hard to see. After I got the swing of things I had a blast. Check out this video of my trying out lure coursing.
These two sporting events definitely would help keep us K9s in tip top shape. I would encourage everyone to try either event out. Fly ball does take some practice but lure coursing takes little to no practice.
