What should I bring?
You may want to leave your hound home the first time you go to watch a
lure coursing field trial.
However if you are hoping to practice the hound or wish to socialize
it to this sort of event you should bring it. Remember, you must keep
your hound under control at all times.
Things to bring:
* Water and a water dish for your hound
* A secure collar and leash for the hound
* Clothing for you and protection for your hound suitable for the
potential variation in weather for that area at that time of year
(shade if the weather is hot is the most important.)
* A chair
* Lunch (it can be a very looong day)
