|WYSIWYG Welsh Terriers
|In terrier races, similar to other lure coursing, an artificial lure is followed to the finish. Up to six terriers race in each heat or final.
At a Jack Russell terrier event, the Jack Russell terriers are divided into many classes by sex, age and size (puppy, under 12.5", over 12.5", veteran, low-riders, etc). Welsh terriers and all other terriers are grouped into a class titled “colored terriers.”
Each terrier puts on their muzzle and a colored collar (for identification) just before the race and enters the starting box. The “starter” waves the lure in front of the terriers, who can see it through the plexiglass front, then drops the lure. The box opens and the lure leads the terriers to the finish - a small opening left in a stack of hay bales. The first dog not just to the hay, but THROUGH the opening wins!
The 150' straight course is covered in a matter of seconds by the terriers. Add about three hurdles and the hurdles race begin.
The Challenge Lure Course is also a favorite of all terriers. The terriers follow a lure through a course of jumps, tunnels, ramps and an A-frame. The course is usually at the Memorial Day Bash and is set up by the people of Doggie Fun Zone.
Wysiwyg Welsh terriers compete in racing at fun days and the Memorial Day Bash sponsored by the Missouri Earthdogs club.
