Custom Size Lure Coursing Slip Lead Leash Padded Limited Ribbon

Details

This Custom Sized Lure Coursing Slip Lead Leash, with Padded Collar and Limited Ribbon - is made with high quality flat, orange nylon and lined with a double thickness of 100% USA cotton, orange velour and extends approximately 1/2 inch above the long edges of the collar. It is trimmed with a heavy, woven jacquard ribbon. The design of this ribbon is based on a contemporary version of the Paisley, consisting of repeating multiple groups of gold lined, paisley like shapes of shiny orange, light turquoise and white, on a pale blue trimmed, dark blue background. This ribbon / webbing combination looks attractive with solid brass d-rings. The d-rings are sewn on each end. At least a 50 inch lead, double box stitched with heavy duty nylon or mono-filament thread, is attached to one end of the collar, double stitched. A hand loop is sewn on the other end.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

All though ancient in origin, Lure coursing has changed very little since man domesticated the dog. As a team, man and dog are a powerful combination of similar skills. The dog's natural hard wiring for chase and speed are essential key attributes for this type of hunting.
Lure Coursing, using dogs for hunting live prey, is part of daily life all over the world.
The Basenji, my own breed of choice for nearly 41 years, is a primitive, aboriginal, Pariah dog well over 8,000 years old and they have changed little over the years. They are still found in the Congo region of their native Southern Africa, where they are still used to point, flush, trail, chase, drive and capture game. The Basenji is naturally barkless, because of a larynx shaped differently from other dogs.
African Tribesmen, knowing how quiet their dogs are, make 'bells', fashioned from emptied gourds. For the 'clappers', the noise making component of a bell, they fill them with selected objects such as gravel, shells, beans or other items, giving the 'bell' a unique sound. The bells are hung around their dog's neck with a jute collar, which can be very ornate with knots, as decoration.
Usually, several hunters will combine their efforts to feed the members of their village, by bringing several dogs with them, taking advantage of the Basenjis' tendency to work in packs Basenjis are conveyed to and from hunting, comfortably wrapped around the shoulders of their owner. Once the dogs are turned loose, the sounds made by the contents of the gourd, provides the identity and travel direction of each dog. Basenjis are tenacious, persistent hunters and rarely give up. They are also fearless and cunning hunters. They also receive a fair share of the catch.
Lure Coursing slip leads are a collar and leash combination. The leash portion is hard sewn to one side of the collar, leaving an open ring on the other end of the collar.
Collars are sized to go around the dogs neck and must be fitted properly to keep the dog from backing out of the collar. The D-rings provide a tie / grip area for your hands while you are restraining the hound before release. See photos above for slip threading. To secure, passing the leash through the two rings, creating a small loop above the rings, then pulling the leash through. See last photo above.
I size my collars to be about a fraction of an inch smaller than the dog's neck when measured directly behind the ears. I also consider the bottom circumference of the neck as most handlers ride the collar further down on the dog's neck. With these two measurements in mind, I know the collar can help to restrain the hound, when not coursing, by tying a 'cinching knot' between the two d-rings. Ideally, a gap of an inch or so between the d-rings, is best. See photo above.
Believe me, walking to or off the field, before or after a run, present opportunities for your dog to hear and / or see the Lure operator resetting the bunnies (white plastic bags tied to the closed loop, nylon string) and you might find yourself being pulled back to the lure!
