***Limit 125 dogs per test***
Sure, you think your dog is fast. But have you ever wondered how fast? Can your dog outrun Usain Bolt, who has been called the fastest runner in the world? He just might: Usain’s fastest time has been clocked at almost 28 mph – yet dogs have been known to reach speeds of 35-45 mph.
Well, you no longer have to wonder how fast your dog can run. FAST CAT® – which stands for Coursing Ability Test – is a timed 100-yard dash where dogs run one at a time, chasing a lure. It’s over before you know it — and it’s nothing short of awe-inspiring to watch your dog run at top speed, ears back, eyes focused, legs strong.
*Refer to the Premium and/or AKC Regulations for FAST CAT for rules
A running order will be posted and you have the opportunity at 7:30 am to 8:00 am to adjust the run order. This is only time you can make changes.
If you are absent when your run is ready, we will skip you and add you to the end of the list FOR THAT TEST. You will have the opportunity to run when your name comes up on the list again.
If you miss your 2nd chance, we may not be able to run you again in that test due to time constraints.
We will start running promptly at 8:oo am both days. Please make sure you have your catcher with you and ready when your run is up.
