I've been wanting to try my doggo at lure coursing for a while now. However, I can't seem to find any events near me that will allow mutts to run. Any advice as to where I can find these events?

I'm in Northern Connecticut/Western Massachusetts area, but willing to travel a few hours if necessary, if that helps.

Look for AKC Coursing Ability Tests and Fast CATS. They'll allow mixed breeds in those, though you'll have to register with AKC to get a performance number.

UKC also has Coursing Aptitude that is open to all breeds and mixes.

For AKC, you'll need a Canine Partners Listing (which requires the dog to be altered), and for UKC you'll need a Performance Listing (which does not require they be altered).

To find AKC events. https://apps.akc.org/event-search/

He is not neutered and I don't plan on neutering in the near future, so I guess AKC is out. I searched UKC for events in my state and all surrounding states through September and there was nothing. Hm. The search continues.

Thank you guys for that information
