Barn Hunt is the new and quickly growing dog sport catching fire across the country! Barn Hunt is based on the traditional roles of many breeds in ridding farms, barns, crop storage areas, and homes of destructive vermin. Some breeds were specifically created to fill this role, and for many of those breeds, Barn Hunt provides their first true opportunity for responsible breeders to test proper working traits in their dogs. Barn Hunt is also open to any dog of any breed or mix who wishes to play the game and can fit through an 18" wide by bale-height tall tunnel. Barn Hunt has titles, levels of increasing difficulty, and championships. Barn Hunt is an independent sport, but titles are recognized by both the American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC).

Barn Hunt is committed to creating a safe and fun sport for dogs, that also holds rat care at the highest level of consideration. The rats used in Barn Hunt are often beloved family pets. They jump eagerly into their safe, comfortable aerated tubes and truly enjoy interacting with the dogs.

We're a great sport for older dogs, and older people too! Tripod dogs can compete, and so can deaf dogs.   The dogs compete one at a time in a confined area so even dogs that do not mix well with others can learn to hunt.  They must not be overtly aggressive.

We will be offering a 6 week class for the dogs to learn what to do and to practice.  We will be working in an actual barn with straw and the rats in their tubes will be hidden in the straw until your dog finds them.  They will have to go through a tunnel and climb on the straw along with indicating the live rat tube.

Your dog will need to be current on the Distemper combo, Rabies, Canine Influenza and have had a Bordetella within the last 6 months.  We recommend but do not require Canine Influenza.   Please preregister your dog by going to the forms page and sending the training forms and a check for $120.00 or you can call us at 540-439-7297 with any questions..  Bring your dog and start to have fun!
