Lure Coursing Event!

Lure coursing play day

The DFW Basenji Club, supported by TAGS, is hosting an All Sighthounds Lure Coursing Fun Day at the farm of Sam and Deann Haggard in Celina. Saturday, October 27, 2012 - all Greyhounds and other sight hounds are invited. There's no better way to spend a fall day.


It doesn't matter that your dog has never lure coursed. It doesn't matter that you don't think your Greyhound has the will to run the course. What matters is that you and your Greyhounds want to have a day of fun in the country. There will be a play yard for the dogs (muzzles required) that do not want to lure course or those that are resting from the last trip around the course. Lunch will be served. Merchandise and raffle tickets for the diamond flower pendant will be available for purchase.    

If you plan to attend please let Deann Haggard know at dhaggard@solbroadband.com by Wednesday, October 24, 2012, so enough food will be available for all.    


Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to sharing the day with you and your hound(s).
