Fast CAT

Well, you no longer have to wonder how fast your dog can run. FAST CAT® – which stands for Coursing Ability Test – is a timed 100-yard dash where dogs run one at a time, chasing a lure. It’s over before you know it — and it’s nothing short of awe-inspiring to watch your dog run at top speed, ears back, eyes focused, legs strong. And if your dog is really fast, you might earn bragging rights if his name makes it onto the American Kennel Club list of the top 20 fastest dogs of each breed. The Greater Kingsport Kennel Club holds two FAST Cat events each year. One in May with our conformation show and one in Nov, both held at the Appalachian Fairgrounds. These events are open to all AKC breeds and mixed breed dogs registered through the AKC Canine Partner program. (Photos courtesy of kennel club members)
