Woofa~Roo Dashers Lure Coursing
Exclusive To This Area - Lure Coursing!
Woofa~Roo Dashers introduced this fantastic sport to Essex County last August and has quickly grown in popularity!
Though lure coursing was developed as a performance event for sighthounds, many breeds of dogs have the ability to lure course. Welcome to Woofa~Roo Dashers!
Many dogs love the thrill of the chase, not just sighthounds. It doesn’t matter if your dog is a small terrier, a Labrador Retriever or a mixed breed, if they love to chase things, they will love lure coursing!
Fee to run our lure course is $5.00 per run.
This is CRAZY FUN!
We are thrilled to have Border City Barkers Agility Club return with their dynamic show of well trained athletic K9s!

You'll think twice before speaking your mind…"

FAST AND FURIOUS CRAZY FUN!
Hosting this area's only CAN/AM sanctioned Flyball tournament coming this August. WOW - this is an amazing opportunity for these incredible teams to raise the roof in our indoor arena.
Flyball is a dog relay race in which teams of dogs race against each other from a start/finish line, over a series of fours hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad. Then these screaming fast dogs race back to their handlers while carrying the ball. The next dog is released for its turn in the lane. It's fast, it's wild!
