The purpose of the AKC Fast CAT® event is to provide all dogs and their owners with an enjoyable, healthy activity in which they can participate.

Fast CAT®—which stands for Fast 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 flying.  Havanese, while they may not appear to be wicked-fast at first, watch out, these lil guys can RUN, and they love the chase!

A relatively new sport, its popularity has spread like wildfire. No wonder. According to one AKC official, “The Fast CAT® provides a terrific opportunity to introduce new participants to the world of AKC sports as one of the few events where all that is needed to compete is a dog’s instincts.”
