Come Run With Us!
Does your dog instinctively want to run and chase bunnies or squirrels or leaves or birds or.....? Then it is probably a good candidate for Lure Coursing, a great way for your dog to run and play safely at a game it loves!
Lure Coursing uses an artificial lure attached to a line, going at speeds of up to 40 miles an hour across an open field following a pattern that is meant to simulate live prey. Lucky Dogs Lure Coursing has taken this sport, and scaled it down in size in order to expose more people to this amazing sport. We have developed our own line of Lure Coursing Equipment which utilizes a closed-loop continuous system. Our variable speed controller can accommodate any and all levels of athleticism and our equipment can scale up or down to almost any sized yard or field, we can even run Indoors! With the ability to change the direction of the lure at the tip of your finger, you always have the ability to go back and get the attention of any dog your working with, or just reverse the course and reverse the fun!
Lucky Dogs believes all dogs deserve a chance to experience this wonderfully fun activity. A well-exercised dog is healthier, better-behaved and just makes life easier for everyone. Lure Coursing is a great way for your dog to get the exercise it needs and have a blast doing it.
Whether Indoors or Outdoors, our custom designed equipment is completely portable and quick to set-up. Lucky Dogs Lure Coursing will come out to your venue, festival or event location, set-up the Lure Coursing Machine, and install temporary fencing if necessary. We suggest an area of a 100' X 100', but a smaller course would be fine for smaller-breed dogs. We bring everything you need to host the most exciting doggie gathering ever, all you have to do is provide the dogs! We are always a hit at outdoor festivals, concerts and other pet based events because we provide a
FULLY INTERACTIVE EVENT
for the attendee's dogs to participate in! Yes your guest's furry friend becomes the center of the show!

The sport of lure coursing is rapidly increasing in popularity, and once you’ve taken a look at this activity in action you will know why.
Lucky Dogs builds equipment to bring this sport to more people on a more accessible scale. Our equipment is tough, but it is not intended for full 600 Yard AKC pulls. There is equipment out there for that, and it is some awesome engineering, but it is a bit pricey, bulky and heavy for your average enthusiast. Our Equipment is on a scale intended for trainers, rescue groups, boarding facilities, festivals and personal enthusiasts to practice, train and entertain!
Our equipment is designed to meet our demanding needs. Many of you have seen us as we run all over the country with our equipment and we require a machine that can run all day long, consistently and smoothly across all performance levels and never overheat no matter what the temperature.
Combine these requirements along with the same rigid standards applied to materials and hardware we selected for each component and Lucky Dogs Lure Coursing created a machine to be proud of.
We give you "Reddy" The Machine.
When you first show up to our course, you will bring with you the dog that you know and love, that you believe you've "Seen it All" with. Let me tell you this, if you've never exposed your dog to Lure Coursing, you have not seen it all.
The calmest, most collected dog, will buckle at the sight of what is going on here. From sitting at attention, to a squealing wild animal trying to get that "thing". This is the effect, it may not be pretty, but it is exciting. We have seen the strongest, coolest character fall apart.
