Coursing Ability Test

A step up from Fast CAT

The purpose of the AKC Coursing Ability Test is to provide all dogs and their owners an enjoyable, healthy activity in which they can participate. Based on the sport of lure coursing, Coursing Ability Tests will serve as an introduction to the sport for all eligible dog owners. Dogs run singularly on a 300 yard or 600 yard course (depending on size of dog) and are required to complete their course with enthusiasm and without interruption within a maximum amount of time. The Coursing Ability Test is a pass–fail event.
