Comments:Doggie Dash De Lure is a lure course set up for the pet dog. It is a simple oval shaped course with a few small hurdles, tunnels and jumps. It is fenced on the inside and the outside with snow fencing. We use a continuous loop, reversable lure machine. This is a great addition to almost any dog fair. It is new and different. Any dog that loves to chase squirells will love this. There is no training required and ANY dog can play and succeed.
