Showing Lure Coursing Obedience Agility Endurance

Lure Coursing

The Ridgeback is capable of achieving very fast racing speeds.  Although a relatively heavy-built dog, their strength combined with their tenacity and cunning more than make up for any lack of acceleration.  The Ridgebacks' forefathers were probably interbred with Greyhounds in order to enhance their speed in the hunt, and so the breed is capable of recording fast times.  This sport is one  that perhaps best utilises the Ridgeback's inherent abilities and is certainly one that most Ridgebacks thoroughly enjoy.

In Queensland, Australia lure coursing can be enjoyed by all registered breeds and even mixed breeds. Runs are held approximately every six weeks.
