Introducing Barn Hunt
What is Barn Hunt?
Barn Hunt is training for you and your dog. We’re going to introduce you & your dog to Barn Hunt and answer questions about how to get involved in this fast growing sport.
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.
Barn Hunt is for ANY breed or mix of dog who loves to hunt, Barn Hunt is all inclusive and fun for any dog and human who wishes to play the game.
- 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.
Visit our booth at the Mid-Michigan Pet Expo March 25 & 26,2023 at the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint, Michigan to learn more about how to get involved with your dog. We will also be offering Try-Its each day
