Starridge Svggkt at full stretch after the lure.

Lure Coursing tries to stimulate the hound's natural instincts for coursing. The "Lure" (a bunch of plastic strips, skin or a plastic bag) is tied to a rope that is pulled around spindles and pullies by a motorcycle especially designed for this purpose. The course pattern is irregular and somewhat similar to the way a hare might run in the open field.

At a field event dogs are judged on their ENTHUSIASM (lively, single minded, showing great eagerness and determination in regard to the lure) to a maximum of 15pts, FOLLOW (chasing the lure with the intent of taking it, while maintaining a path of reasonably close proximity to the lure's course, reacting immediately to any change in the motion of the lure) to a maximum of 15pts, SPEED (rapidity in moving, with credit going to the dog that levels out low, stretching and driving) to a maximum of 25pts, AGILITY (nimbleness in negotiating terrain, turning without going wide or cutting or breaking stride) to a maximum of 25pts, and ENDURANCE (stamina of mental and physical concentration, dog does not fade, pull up or slacken) to a maximum of 20pts.

Dogs run twice at each field event for a total possible score of 200. Based on this scoring dogs progress through a series of grades: Novice being dogs that have failed to score more than 145 points in 3 events; to progress to Intermediate grade dogs must score 150 points or more in 2 consecutive courses or run 3 courses with a minimum score of 145 points in each event; to progress from Open dogs must score 160 points or more in 2 consecutive courses or 3 courses with a minimum score of 155 points in each event.

ANKC does not at this time recognise Lure Coursing - all titles below are awarded by the Queensland Lure Coursing Association (QLCA).
