Just click on the links below to learn more about events or products Borzoi owners will need and enjoy!
You’ll want to bookmark this one! The AKC Event Search page. You’ll use this to find any American Kennel Club sanctioned events near you. (And since Bluebonnet pups are registered with the AKC, this is the best place to start!) You can’t enter events through this webpage, but it is the place to find out that they exist. For lure coursing, click on the event and email the secretary for a premium. Fill it out, then bring it and the entry fee with you on the morning of the event. For conformation showing, use Onofrio Dog Shows page to submit entries. Conformation shows do not allow day-of entries.
Also, joining a few Facebook groups such as Region 4 Lure Coursing, All Things AKC Lure Coursing, and Where’s the Major?! will get you even more updates on events and interaction with other sighthound owners. People regularly post PDF’s of premiums here, and take head counts for how many dogs plan to compete. It’s a great way to see if there will be other Borzoi’s competing before you make a drive or pay an entry fee.
This is the link to my Etsy shop, where I sell lure coursing vests. Dogs are required to compete in blue, pink, and yellow vests for AKC coursing. Dogs run in groups of two or three, and the judges use the colors to tell the dogs apart when they are far out in the field. I sell my reversible pairs for $25. If you are already a Bluebonnet puppy owner and planning on purchasing some vests, please let me know! I have a special free shipping code just for you!
