There were all breeds and mixed breeds participating. The lure was just a couple plastic grocery bags tied to a rope an a pulley. ? Xena has such a high prey drive anything that moves would prob grab her attention. Lol.
Xena will be 2 in December so she’s still filling out a bit, but as of now she’s around 49lbs and a West German working line so prob won’t get much bigger. ?
I supposed there’s risk if injury with any sport. We also do Schutzhund too and just finished up our first agility class last week. I want to try nose work, I think we’d excel in that too.
It takes no training for FAST CAT, just have to try it and see if your dog likes it or not. Some of them started the chase the lure then got distracted or turned back around and went the other way (I’m assuming back towards the handlers).
I had someone else hold and release. So she watched her walk away to the end. She so glued to me that I think that also helped egg her on.
I know we were either the fastest time or 2nd fastest. There were all different types of dogs there. They don’t keep track Of who runs the fastest, just have your ribbons for you to pick up on a table at the end of the event.
We will definitely be continuing to do more though.
