Fast CAT is a 100 yard dash which dogs compete against the clock
Click here for the AKC LURE COURSING AND FAST CAT® RULES & INFORMATION
1. Fast CAT® is a pass/fail event.
2. Dogs run singly on a fenced-in course.
3. The dog’s time to complete the 100-yard dash is converted to miles per hour (MPH). Formula: 204.545/Dog’s Time = MPH.
4. Dogs earn points based on their handicapped speed. A handicap system is applied to a dog’s MPH to determine the number of points it earns for each qualifying run.
5. The system is based on the dog’s height at its withers:
18” or greater = handicap 1.0
12” up to, but less than 18” = handicap 1.5
Below 12” = handicap 2.0
