The Mazing Chase is based off of an older Canine Sport called Lure Coursing. Lure Coursing which was designed for Sighthounds as they have extraordinary vision and hunt predominately using their vision to track their target while most other breeds are scent driven, more than vision, and use their noses to track their target. Lure Coursing is a Lure (a flag or toy) that travels over a fairly large area of land. This lure is on a string that rides a pulley system and is powered by a motor to move the string which makes the lure travel. Sighthounds can reach speeds of approximately 40 MPH so these machines care designed to move the lure in the 40 MPH range. Sighthounds are not supposed to ever catch the lure but to chase it for a loop around the course. As this sport continues to evolve other Dogs have been known to enjoy it as well. That is how I came upon Lure Coursing, in my pursuit to find ways to entice and motivate my dogs to Engage their Instinct by chasing something that will have no ill consequences. Since Huskies have high endurance levels and can literally run for what seems like endless miles, I had to create a Lure Coursing System which was Husky proof (that I call The Mazing Chase) and you can read about how I did this on my WooFTEK Website clicking here. In addition I have included a few movies of the Dogs chasing and running with an RC Car which can be another great form of exercise for them.
