Lure Coursing…It’s not just for sight hounds any more
August received his CA (Coursing Ability Title) on June 7th at the AKC All Breed Lure Coursing Event in Chino, California. It was held at the Winning Edge Dog Sports Center with California Coursing Association in conjunction with Southern California Ibizan Hound Club.
The Coursing Ability Test (CAT) was recently created by AKC to allow all dog breeds, including mixed-breeds, to participate in a lure coursing type event. The course has been modified so that the distance is not has far or the corners has sharp as a standard lure course.
To participate, the dog must be registered with AKC either as a standard AKC breed, under the FSS registrations (DSFD), or ILP/PAL program (mixed breed). The dogs must be at least 1 year old and should be in good physical condition.
To pass the test, a dog running alone must pursue a lure, completing the course with enthusiasm and without interruption within a given time.
Dogs that pass the CAT three times will earn a Coursing Ability (CA) title. Ten passes and a dog earns a Coursing Ability Advanced (CAA) title, and 25 passes results in a Coursing Ability Excellent (CAX) title. Licensed lure coursing clubs may hold CATs in conjunction with a licensed lure coursing trial or as a stand-alone event. For more information, go to: www.akc.org/events/coursing-ability-test

Southern California Farmdog Meet the Breed event
March 29, 2015
Organizer: Jan Harmon
Fifteen Farmdogs defended upon the Sunday shoppers at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. It was quite a show stopper. Many people stopped to ask us about the breed. While we were lined up for a photo op we could see several on-lookers from within the outdoor restaurant taking our picture with their cell phones. The only thing missing was a dance routine because we invaded the mall like a flash mob. Read more in the 2015 Spring Newsletter ...
