Facilities

The pasture field has no amenities or shade available. Please ensure the comfort of you and your dogs by bringing your own portable shade/shelter and water.

Portable restrooms will be made available.

For the safety of the dog and as a courtesy to other entrants, a testing dog should have a reliable recall. A penalty of $10.00 may be assessed for any dog causing an excessive delay of the event because it cannot be recalled or retrieved from the field. Dogs that delay the event because their owners cannot recall them may be refused entry at future events.

The Huntmaster is responsible for field safety and therefore s/he is in complete charge of all dogs and handlers on the field. In service to this responsibility, s/he has the authority to stop the lure in any potentially dangerous situation and signal the handler to retrieve a testing dog. Listen to the Huntmaster and follow all instructions promptly and swiftly.

Any decisions made by the event's officiating judge(s) regarding the performance of an entered dog shall be final. Full discretionary power is given to the judge(s) to withhold any and all qualifications for lack of merit. The Judge(s) is responsible for ensuring compliance with the AKC Regulations on the field.

Exhibitors should follow their veterinarian's recommendation to assure their dogs are free of internal and external parasites, any communicable diseases and have appropriate vaccinations.

Coursing is an athletic activity that can tax a dog's physical strength. Dogs that are overweight and/or out of condition may be at greater risk for injury and exhaustion. The Inspection Committee has the authority to disallow a dog's entry into a test, and in such instances, applicable entry fees will be refunded.
