South Florida Pet Lovers should prepare themselves for fun and excitement with Swift Paws at the South Florida Expo Center on March 21st.

Online PR News – 13-March-2015 – West Palm Beach, FL – Dog sports are on the rise and the 2015 South Florida Pet Expo is showing their love for this trend by giving pet-lovers the opportunity to see and participate in Lure Coursing at the 2015 South Florida Pet Expo on Saturday, March 21 at the South Florida Expo Center from 10am until 6pm.

Lure Chasing, also known as Lure Coursing, is a fast-paced, fun chase sport. Dogs run after a “bunny” lure (usually a white plastic bag) that is attached to a line that is controlled by a machine and a lure operator. The machine runs the line at the speed determined by the lure operator (and the dogs) and the dogs chase the lure.

“There are lots of activities and dog sports out there and it's no secret that dogs often have a little too much energy,” says Meghan Wolfgram of Swift Paws, “Lure chasing is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to tire your pup out both mentally and physically.”

Along with being able to watch a few demonstrations of the sport, pet parents will be invited to allow their pups to try out the course for themselves for a small fee, so that they have the opportunity to decide if their pets could benefit from the exercise and excitement of Lure Chasing.

“Lure Coursing is always a fun and entertaining addition to the Expos,” says Ethan Barnett, Vice President of Community Partnerships for Amazing Pet Expos, “No matter the dog sport, we’re always happy to watch the pets of our attendees having fun and showing us how to embrace new things. Lure coursing is a great way to exercise your pet no matter their age, breed, or disability.”

The South Florida Pet Expo will also feature more than 100 exhibitors, live entertainment and demonstrations, and a Petfinder.com mega-adoption area with more than 200 rescue pets available for adoption. Low-cost immunizations and discounted microchipping will be available from Animal Aid, Inc and free nail trims will also be available from the Florida Animal Career Training School for all the furry friends who need them.
