You should give the CAT a try anyway! If he goes after the lure, he'll be fine. My dogs never saw a lure until they did the CAT. Logan got his title in 2 days, and Gavroche got a leg the one time he ran.

Glad Squash had fun!

I hear it was quite chaotic today with some really inattentive dog owners. Hopefully regular classes will be better managed!

We were only there for maybe 45 minutes or so towards the middle/end of the event and pretty much just showed up, waited in line for and did the lure coursing, and left... but it wasn't too bad as far as we could see. There was one tiny dog the owner was allowing to roam around with its leash dragging that was pretty much unsupervised as far as I could tell, but we just avoided it and other than that we were lucky not to encounter anything terribly egregious.

How fun! I didn't realize there were classes for it--what sort of stuff are you guys going to learn?

Lucy's going to her second CAT event next weekend. There will be 3 runs, so she should finish up her CAT, and I love hanging out in such a low key, no pressure environment where the dogs are all just having so much fun!

Well each class is only 3 weeks long, so I think it's more or less just an introduction to it, then a safe place/ opportunity to practice.

Sass, you should totally sign Squash up for the October runs!

I am contemplating taking Monstercorg.

I WANNA RUN A DOG! But not a Buzz or Bailey because they're deaf and/or unsound.
