This sport was made for the fast ones!
Flat Racing and Steeplechase Racing are sports we were introduced to at United Kennel Club Premier Dog Show a couple of years ago. This type of racing is for any breed under 18″ tall. This sport is perfect for those dogs who have a high prey drive and that love to chase things.
Dogs must be temporarily muzzled during their run and chase a lure down a grass track, crossing the finish line through a small opening into the catch area where their handler is waiting.
For more information on these types of races, please visit the rule book on the United Kennel Club Website, here.
