CKC Lure Coursing For All Dogs - CATS and FASTCATS

Lure coursing tests (Coursing Ability Test, aka CAT) are now sanctioned by AKC for all breeds and mixed breeds that are AKC registered or have a canine partner number. Dogs, at least 12 months old, run a course with at least four turns. The course is a 600 yard course for dogs over 12 inches at the withers or a 300 yard course for dogs under 12 inches and brachycephalic dogs. The course is shortened to 2/3 the distance for older dogs. The dog is judged on a pass/fail basis. Dogs participating in CAT events can earn AKC CAT suffix titles.

Are you interested in officiating at one of our CAT events?

AKC Coursing Ability Tests can be officiated, in addition to AKC licensed Lure Coursing Judges, by qualified "Coursing Evaluators". If you are interested in being a CAT evaluator for a Chintimini Kennel Club event and you are not an AKC Lure Coursing Judge, then please complete the the CKC CAT Lure Coursing Evaluator Certification form.
