CAT Defined: CAT is an outdoor pass/fail event open to all dogs. CAT is based on the fundamentals of the sport of Lure Coursing where two different sized courses, 300 yards or 600 yards are used depending on a dog’s height. Dogs run singly and are required to complete the course with enthusiasm and without interruption within a maximum amount of time.

FastCAT Defined: FastCAT is an outdoor pass/ fail test that consists of a 100-yard dash using a straight course or track. Dogs run singly and are required to reach the finish line. The dog’s time to complete the course is converted into MPH and then to points based on height by using a handicap.
