Reservations and Walk-Ins Welcome!!

Doylestown Township Parks & Recreation and Hilltown Dog Club Lure Coursing have teamed up to offer Lure Coursing, a great canine activity at Turk Park III (almshouse Rd. adjacent to the dog park). Lure coursing is a fast-paced, fun chase sport. Dogs chase the lure (“bunny”), a white plastic bag that is attached to a line that is mechanized and controlled by a lure operator. The machine runs the line at a speed determined by the lure operator (and the dog). The run area will be enclosed by a temporary fence. All non-aggressive dogs, big or small, are welcome to come out.

Date:
November 2nd from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
November 3rd from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Cost: $10 per run
