One leg per event. If they hold more than one event (different event numbers are required) per day, you can run in each event. For instance, the Louisiana KC holds a cluster of CATs in November. Over the weekend, they have something like five separate events.

are individually registered with the AKC, recorded in the Foundation Stock Service (FSS) program,
individually registered with a foreign or domestic registry organization whose pedigrees are acceptable for
AKC registration, dogs granted a Purebred Alternative Listing (PAL) number, dogs with AKC Limited or
Conditional Registration, or dogs enrolled in the AKC Canine Partners program. Dogs with breed
disqualifications and monorchid/cryptorchid dogs are eligible to participate
. Females in season may not
enter. A dog may enter only once per event. (An event is defined by an event number.)
I thought they were wrong, but I didn't make a fuss since he has both and is a breed champion. If he had just one, I would have been pretty angry.

Makes sense. I am guessing more than one leg a day is probably a bit stressful anyways. It's probably (usually) that way for a reason. It's just tough for me when all of them are so darn far away, it would be nice to get more than a couple runs for 6+ hours driving (total) and a hotel stay!

I'm going to see if I can get a fun run in at a local place that doesn't do CATs, just to make sure she likes it first. I don't have any doubts though, since she has a high prey drive, loves chasing animals out of the yard, etc.

We did a fun coursing trial and Rupert loved at and was really good at it!

I've looked into it but all the clubs are for sight hounds only

The last CAT event I was at I had a number of people insisting my dog couldn't run with a collar on. When the judge started to say something about Ivan wearing a collar I told him it's not coming off and the rules actually state. . . he cut me off and said go ahead.

I'm not a fan of the idea of having my dog run in an open field in an unfamiliar area with no identification on him. Ivan has never run away. He's never given any indication he would do so, but I'm still not comfortable with him being loose and uncontained with no visible ID.

Based on that experience, I'll make sure to always have a copy of the regulations with me and not take for granted that everyone knows them.

A lot of the clubs just seem to take hounds, which rule Kahlua out But, should we be working on training to do this. I don't know if she will know what to do or even what she *should* be doing for that matter. I've never seen one. There is a group that is doing an event 6 hours away, it's a pretty long drive considering we don't know what to do. I emailed the club but no response yet.

She chases live animals outside all the time, but when she does that, I lose her recall, it's like that's the only thing she can focus on is chasing and she almost zones everything else out.

It's basically an instinct sport. I brush up on recalls beforehand, but other than that you just have to make sure your dog is in good shape... you go up to the line, release your dog when the huntmaster says Tally-ho, then collect your dog at the end! They usually have it set up so the lure comes to you at the end, so catching your dog is fairly easy.

Kahlua runs nonstop up here, all over the mountains so she should be good with that. I imagine if the lure stops moving she will lose interest and will come back. What if they bite the lure? Is that frowned upon?

She is good with recalls normally she always comes back, just not when she finds something to chase. Here its deer and turkeys, so far she hasn't gotten the chance to chase them in a while but she gets riled up once she sees them.

Not really - a lot of dogs do it, especially the sighthounds that do competitive lurecoursing See the photo of Kaylee:

Rocket loves coursing! He's got his CA and 3 legs toward his CAA, hoping to finish up his CAA in April!








And this one was on the way to coursing. 7 hours in the car is apparently too many!

The CAT in Cat Springs, TX is this weekend!

I've sent in Siri's pre-entry. If she completes this leg she'll earn the CA title.

I'm so excited already and it's only Monday.

I'm so jealous. I wish the Cat Springs event was closer but I just don't have the time to drive 4ish hours each way. At least with the events close to Austin I can stay with my parents and get some of my school stuff done in the evening. I'd be exhausted after driving all day.

tl;dr - Good luck to those going this weekend and I want MOARRRRR

Ilka's entry was mailed on Friday. Here's hoping for two legs, and some pretty ribbons. I like pretty ribbons. I'm still new enough at this dog game that all our pretty ribbons are framed, and hanging on the wall, along with all our certificates and title pictures. Does that make me a proud dog owner, or just a narcissist?

PWR, I'm driving about 3 hours Saturday morning, spending the night at a motel in Katy, then driving home Sunday afternoon.

It's close to me. About 35 minutes. BUT, of course I have to drive to Navasota first since she's showing in conformation. Then I'll turn back around for the CAT. Cause it just couldn't be as simple as driving 35 minutes!

Overachiever! Glad you got yours in early too.
I have all of Siri's performance ribbons, but only her class winning, WB/RWB ribbons. If she goes 2nd in a class I leave that with her handler! Though none of hers are framed. I really had the intention to do that...but there's just so many. Proud dog owner for sure!

What exit are you staying at?

I'll have the BF with me on Saturday and some good friends that are running their Dobes too on Sat/Sun. Between the BF and the friends I'm hoping for photos AND video. We'll see what I actually end up with though!

I'll staying at the one at I-10 and Mason Rd. According to their website, it's like 35 miles, and is the closest one to Cat Spring. There were a couple of other chains that were closer, but too expensive for me.

Maybe by the time I've put an OTCh/UDX on Leo, I'll stop displaying all of the ribbons my dogs and I earn. Or not.

Maybe by the time I've put an OTCh/UDX on Leo, I'll stop displaying all of the ribbons my dogs and I earn. Or not.
Ok. I know exactly where you're at then. Super close to my house. And at least you're right off the freeway cause Mason can be a nightmare on Saturdays!

Nope...once you put an OTCH/UDX on Leo you'll expect them ALL to have OTCH/UDX's and then you'll really be addicted like the ladies at my training club.

Damn...I wish you were closer. You could train at HOT with us!

Yeah, for me to train with HOT would mean a two hour one-way drive. My choices are pretty much limited to Petsmart (and the trainer I liked isn't there any more), Petco (sigh... one of the trainers was bragging about the fabuous Warlock Dobe he used to own), or K9 Obedience in Groves. I'm thinking about taking Leo through a class there, but while she seems to be a pretty nice lady, and I know a lot of people I see at trials train with her, I don't know her training style.

I'm already addicted to trialing. It's just that by the time Leo gets all OTChed and UDXed, I won't have any wall space left. All future dogs' ribbons will probably just have to go in a shoebox.

Dear AKC,
The Manage Your Dogs section that I am obsessively checking to see if Siri's two CA legs were credited has not updated since March 6. It is now March 25. PLEASE. UPDATE. ASAP.

Thanks,
Neurotic Owner

Getting' awwwfulllyyy jealous of seeing this thread of you folks being able to do this with your dogs I've written to a bunch of clubs which said hounds only...and had no responce as of yet.

Trying to keep positive about the prospects tho...

It's taken over a month for Ilka's obedience and rally legs to show up sometimes. I'm on tenterhooks, waiting to see Leo's name show up. I mean, I only mailed the application a a week ago today.
