What is Barn Hunt you may ask?
The purpose of Barn Hunt is to demonstrate a dog’s vermin hunting ability in finding and marking rats in an above ground “barn-like” setting, using a straw/hay bale maze to introduce climbing and tunneling obstacles in the dog’s path. Rats in aerated tubes are hidden in the maze for the dog to find, and some tubes will be empty or only contain litter.
- Test hunting instinct in vermin hunting breeds (open to ALL breeds and mixes, you do not have to have a vermin hunting breed to play the game)
- You tell the judge when the dog has found the prey, demonstrating your communication and partnership with your dog
- At all times, the safety of the dogs, handlers, and rats is to be of paramount importance.
Enclosed straw mazes setup with tubes. We’ll hide the rat and you can find it or you can work to find two rats as in the upper level Barn Hunt divisions. There will be a tunnel in each maze. If you want to work against the clock you can be timed. If you have a small dog we have a ramp to get on top of bales please let us know.
Workshops will be held throughout the summer and fall months.
