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.

Proceeds benefit SNAP!

This is CRAZY FUN!

Ask Our Professionals . . .

Held indoors, in a climate controlled environment, our Pet-Ucation Center will feature professionals who can address your challenges or entertain you with their unique stories and amazing animal facts.

Please refer to our festival program for a schedule of events.
