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.

In the Fast CAT. Dogs run a timed 100 yard sprint and based on their running times earn points for a AKC suffix title. Click on the blue links for more information about FASTCATs and CAT Events
