April 2017 Fast CAT and Premium List

 

Our Fast Cats are FILLED. 

Check back with us for our fall Fast Cat Trials. 

 

Interested in lure coursing?

Fort St. Clair Kennel Club is very pleased to announce our second Fast CAT (that’s “coursing ability test”– no cats involved.)  The test is held down an informal fenced “alley”, with a collection area at the end.  The alley is 100 yards long and dogs are timed as they follow the lure. Using a formula to convert time to miles-per-hour and a handicapping system based on the breed (open to all breeds and bulldogs aren’t expected to run as fast as Borzois) gives your dog a score. Three qualifying scores results in your dog’s first lure coursing trial.

Dogs must be at least a year old, we recommend that they run “naked” (no collar) and generally they are released by a helper to run towards their handler. If you were tempted by the regular CAT test, but worried that your dog would go walkabout, this might be the test for you.

Open to any dog who has a number from the AKC, including mixed breeds with a “Canine Companion” number and purebreds with an ILP, as well as regularly registered dogs. More info at the AKC’s FAST CAT page here.

We will be running two tests on Sunday afternoon, and if time and weather permits perhaps a practice run on Saturday.

The premium list and entry blanks are at this link.
