Peruvian Inca Orchid Club of the United States
Lure Coursing is one of the oldest hunting dog sports. It was originally a sport of coursing live game,
rabbits or hare by dogs that hunt by sight. Today Lure Coursing has evolved into a performance event for
sight hounds. Designed to simulate the running and turning actions of live prey in a safe way. It allows
dogs the opportunity to do what they do instinctively, give chase. Lure Coursing not only encourages but
helps to develop that prey drive within the dog. It will build on their enthusiasm, follow, agility,
endurance and speed, all traits the Peruvian Inca orchid possess. It is a fun sport for both the dogs
and humans. For more information on events, rules and history of Lure Coursing go to the links below.
The purpose of non-competitive Lure Coursing tests is to offer sighthound breed owners a standardized
gauge to measure their hounds' coursing instinct. The purpose of the competitive Lure Coursing trial program
is to preserve and develop the coursing skills inherent in the sighthounds and to demonstrate that they can
perform the functions for which they were originally bred.
Although Lure Coursing events are artificial simulations of coursing, they are designed to measure and
develop the characteristics of the sighthound breeds.
Sighthounds are a special group of hounds that are bred to hunt by sight.
