Coursing is the pursuit of game by dogs—chiefly Greyhounds—running by sight, not by scent. Coursing was a common hunting technique practiced by nobility with Greyhounds and by commoners with Lurchers.

A competitive version has been developed since the first set of English rules for coursing was drawn up in the reign of Elizabeth I. The object is to test the dog, not to kill the hare, and today the dogs are often muzzled. Hares are often owned and pursued on several occasions.
