We Are “My Tally Ho”

Dogs have always been man’s best friend. They bring an abundance of companionship, laughter, and joy into our lives. In return, owners look for ways to enrich their dogs’ lives by seeking activities that appeal to their natural inclination and unbounded instinct to hunt and run freely. While watching them run, have you ever wondered how fast your dog is or how it ranks with other dogs in that breed? Fast CAT® which stands for Coursing Ability Test, is an American Kennel Club (AKC) race of a 100-yard timed sprint. Dogs run one at a time, chasing a lure. Their time and speed are recorded and ranked. Any purebred or mixed breed can participate in this sport. Today, there is a platform that allows Fast CAT participants to track time/speed and points earned in this popular growing sport. Introducing the MY TALLY HO app!

My Tally Ho follows the calculations outlined in the Coursing Ability Test (CAT) and Fast CAT® Regulations published by the AKC.  For speed: 204.545 divided by the dog’s time, the result of which is rounded to the nearest hundredth1. For points, the speed of the dog is multiplied by a handicap according to the dog’s height2.
According to the AKC regulations, “The time to complete the 100-yard dash is recorded to the nearest 1/100th of a second.”3  We’d suggest rounding your dog’s run time to the nearest hundredth and recording that time in My Tally Ho.

Rounding error can occur, but if the difference is significant we’d recommend double checking your dog’s recorded runs in My Tally Ho with the times listed on your qualifying ribbon to ensure everything was entered correctly.  If the difference is still significant, we recommend reaching out to the AKC – mistakes are rare, but they can happen.

From the run data you enter in your dog’s profile, My Tally Ho calculates how many points your dog earns, on average, per run as well as how many points away your dog is from earning their next badge.  Using this data, My Tally Ho calculates approximately how many runs it will take for your dog to earn their next badge.

Yes, your profile and your dogs’ information are still saved – they just won’t be accessible during the time you’re not subscribed.
