Took Finn to the Dogs Victoria big day out for dogs + canine Christmas market last weekend. Was a great day all around... (no poo accidents too )
We went over to watch the lure coursing for a little while and Finn was completely fascinated by it!!
We were on the other side of the fence, probably at least 20m from where the dogs and lures actually were. Finn was watching so focused on everything that was going on, taking it all in! Every time the lure went around closest to us, Finn got super excited and so desperately wanted to run after it!
Lure coursing is something I've never given a second thought about but now having seen Finn's reaction to it (and it does look like good fun!) I'm thinking it would be a great activity for him that he'd have an absolute blast doing!
I do have concerns though... I don't want to encourage him chasing small animals like cats... At the moment he's generally good with cats, but if one ran fast near him, I'm not sure what he would do.
So considering I don't really want to encourage him chasing small animals... I'm assuming that lure coursing is probably something I should be avoiding, even though I think he'd have an absolute blast doing it!
What are your thoughts on this?
