The FAST CAT is a timed straight race of 100 yards where a dog chases a lure. Dogs are run singularly and earn points based on their handicapped speed. There are no placements. Titles are issued at designated benchmarks. The dog’s time to complete the 100 yard dash is converted into MPH. Dogs earn points based on their handicapped speed. A handicap system is applied to a dog’s MPH to determine the number of points earned. The handicap system is based on the height of the dog at its withers.
Fast CAT is open to all dogs 12 months of age or older that are individually registered/ listed with the AKC registration as purebreds, Foundation Stock Service (FSS) dogs, Purebred Alternative Listing (PAL) dogs and AKC Canine Partner Program.
