Lure coursing is a sport for dogs that involves chasing a mechanically-operated lure. It tests the dog's basic coursing instinct or hunting-by-sight ability. The AKC offers lure coursing titles for all breeds through the Coursing Ability Test (CAT). This program is pass or fail. To pass, the dog must complete a 300-yard or 600-yard course (determined by breed) with enthusiasm and within the maximum amount of time: 600 yards - 2 minutes; 300 yards - 1 1⁄2 minutes.
