Another fantastic lurecoursing day for Beagles only. This event is always a highlight and is a fantastic day for the beagle athletes and their owners 🙂
All beagles welcome – dogs over 9 months are allowed to have full runs.
Puppies under 9 months can be included in the famous Puppy runs.
Time permitting, pack runs will take place at the end of the day’s events.
Cost is $5 per dog and classes are Novice, Open and Veteran ( over 7 years of age).
Approximate timings for the day: (finish time will depend on the number of dogs entered)
8:30am – 9:00am – Registration
Every Beagle needs to be entered. Your Beagle will be given a number for the day. When your number is called, come to the starting gate for your dog’s run.
9:15am – 10:00am – Novice and Puppy Runs
This is for any Beagles that have never done lure coursing before. They will run over a short distance of about 70 metres to get the feel of lure coursing and for owners to see how it is done. It is also open to puppies up to nine months of age.
10:00am –Full Runs
The full runs will commence. Once every dog has run once, the course will be reversed and the second runs will be started.
12:30am – Pack Run
After the Beagles have had a rest, we will have a pack run where all the Beagles can have a fabulous time running together. This is always a spectacular sight.
1pm – Pack up, and Presentations
It’s always appreciated at the end of the day to have people assist in packing up the gear. Many hands make for light and quick work. Once the packing up is completed, the top dogs of the day will be presented.
The annual Apollo Trophy will be awarded on this day and prizes awarded for placings.
A great day for all.
