Pretzel, Meghan Wolfgram’s little dog, has also helped give countless dogs around the world a run for their money.
Because her dog craved activity, Wolfgram sought out lure coursing, which taps onto canine’s prey drive to exercise them physically and mentally.
Lure coursing was developed in California in the early 70s, primarily for sight hounds.
Think of the fake rabbit that lures racing greyhounds around a track and you get the idea.
The dogs chase feathers, toys or plastic bags that simulate escaping game.
Most dogs adore the thrill of the chase, so while sight hounds may have been the original intended canine, the sport now attracts everything from Chihuahuas to Great Danes.
