Black dog running in the air


The Manitowoc County Kennel Club is happy to announce that we will host two FastCAT® events in 2024. The spring event will be held on May 3, 4, & 5, and the fall event will be on October 18, 19 & 20, both will be run at our Valders grounds.

All dogs can participate in Fast CAT, regardless of whether they are purebred or of mixed breed.

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 natural instincts.”

“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.”
