Intro To Coursing

Get ready to run!

There are a number of coursing sports available to dogs, many of which can earn your dog titles, and nearly all dogs will run. The purpose of this beginner’s class is to provide a hands-on introduction to coursing and to teach you, the handler, the basics. Your dog will know what to do but it is the handler who really needs the experience. This class will provide you with everything you need to know about:

  • Event safety and proper field etiquette
  • Lining up in the queue
  • Correct slip lead usage
  • Releasing the dog properly and on cue from the Hunt Master
  • Catch basin protocol and standing in the right position to catch your dog at the end of the run
  • Exiting the field properly
  • And much more

Upon completion you’ll receive a certificate, a graduation photo, and when the next season of large events starts up in the summer you’ll be able to sign up for the “experienced” sections.


Each class has 4 Saturday sessions, 2 hours long.  Pricing is $170 per dog per class.  Ask us about our 10% multi-dog household discount!
