Thank you, everyone! Who would have thought chasing plastic bags on a lure would be so much fun

I encourage everyone if there's a FCAT event by them to check it out and run. His fastest run was 27.4 (28.06 mph) and the run times are averaged. He consistently runs in the 7.4-7.6 second range. We don't get to run CAT (600 yd lure course) often either so when there's a lure course event AND a FCAT event we're doing them both! He ran the CAT course in between his FCAT runs with 90 minute rest. I thought it would affect his last FCAT run but it didn't.

I'm not going to lie - he's a HANDFUL to hold and release at the start. It's entertaining and I'm sure he gets on other handlers nerves as their dogs calmly wait for their turn. He's barking, lunging and just loading while he waits.

My solid black GSD had a white patch on his chest. It's normal. It gets smaller as they get older and is barely visible now. Cute pup!

Here's a snapshot of Judah's ranking. Last year I believe the fastest GSD was running a 30 mph!!!!! Now, THAT is smoking fast!

Is the speed avg mph for a distance or max speed at any given point?

When I skijor we get up to about 30 mph per my gps at max speed, but not for long stretches. I'd say 30 is near max speed for my dogs, but it would be fun to test.

(Dog #4 has so many letters after his name...he is like the canine equivalent of an M.D./Ph.D./J.D. i guess :-)

@Muskeg - the mph are converted based the 100 yard timed dash. It's not like a radar in that you can "shoot" the dog at a specific speed at a specific time. Like some people say their dog was clocked at 30 mph with a radar - that's a little different because it's a point and shoot and not a speed that's maintained. Hope that's clear.

There are timers at the start that are triggered when the dogs go over the line and timers at the end when the dogs finish - this is what's used for their run time (in seconds). So for FCAT if they are 18" or above which mine are you would take the seconds of their run say 7.4/204.545 = 27.64 mph

So a dog that can run 30 mph would run the 100 yard dash in less than 7 seconds. He would cross the finish line and wait two and a half seconds for Usain Bolt to finally catch up and plod past.
