What is Coursing?
Coursing is a hunting simulation, a dog sport much loved by our dogs.
It consists of a simulated hunt that takes place on natural terrain without obstacles and dangers for dogs.
Dogs chase (single or in pairs) a fake prey called laughing stock running on a path of about 500/1000 meters with short straights and changes of direction.
The laughing stock is moved by a wire that runs on a system of pulleys making sudden changes of direction and thus simulating the natural movement of a hare.
We had Chalice's and Batido under the Coursing license, until our breed was revoked.
In competitions, the parameters judged by the judges are speed, ardor, intelligence, dexterity and endurance, each of which is assigned a score. The tests are divided into two heats.
