Fort St. Clair is delighted to announce that we have been approved for two Fast CATS this autumn, September 30 & October 1, at Preble County Fairgrounds.722 S. Franklin St. Eaton, Ohio.
Dogs must be one year old to compete. New AKC regulations allow for dogs to run with collars, though we still recommend running your dog “naked.” The lane for the run is “fenced” with snow fencing, as is the “catch” area at the end of the run. Rosettes will be given to dogs completing their titles.
The link to the entry form is at the bottom of this page.
Camping is available, but must be arranged through the Fairground office (937) 456-3748. There are pet-friendly motels in New Paris (the Golden Inn, a Mom and Pop-style establishment, popular with our dog show exhibitors 937-437-0722) and in nearby Richmond, Indiana.
FSCKC Fall 2017 Fast CAT Premium 2.0-1
Fort St. Clair Kennel Club is thrilled to announce their inaugural FAST CAT competitions, the first FAST CAT to be held in Ohio. The newest variation on lure coursing from the AKC, the FAST CAT is a timed 100-yard dash inside a fenced “alley”. Dogs compete against the clock rather than each other, and earn points for how fast they run. Earning 500 points results in a new title for the end of your dog’s name– BCAT. Dogs of any breed are permitted to participate, and mixed breed dogs are welcome provided they have a “Canine Partner” number from the AKC. Dogs must be a year old. We will be running two tests each day on Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th. Pre-entries are $15 per run, day of trial are $20.

And have no fear — absolutely no cats are involved in these tests!
