LURE COURSING: With a finer weekend forecast than the last few, Warwick dog owners have the perfect opportunity to try a new sport for them and their dogs.
One only has to head to Henry Joppich Park on a Sunday once a month to know that the dogs love the chance to chase a plastic bag around a set course.
The course zig zags, just like a hare would if being pursued.
A stationary motorcycle provides the power to drive a cable with the plastic bag around the course.
The dog is judged on everything from follow to time.
This Sunday is the next opportunity in Warwick to try lure coursing.
The club has a field trial and all current and prospective members welcome to the park in Wentworth St for registrations from 8.30am.
First dogs will be on course from 9am. Cost is $6 for dogs of non-members and $5 for members.
Club publicity officer Sharon Briggs said the last field trial attracted 22 dogs.
The top five dogs were Hana, a saluki owned by Alex Bowman, who won on a countback with 176 points from Mokona, another saluki from the same owner.
Kelly Collins; labrador Tyler was third on 175 from fourth-placed Sasha, a kelpie/ cattle dog-cross, owned by Pam Gordon on 174. Diesel, a blue heeler-cross, owned by Sam Carins scored 174 and was fifth on a countback.
