Barn Hunt

Barn Hunt is an exciting new sport where dogs get to use their natural instinct to “hunt” rats.  Your dog does not have to be a terrier to play – Barn Hunt is open to all breeds and it’s an AKC and UKC recognized sport!  A maze of straw bales is set up and there are PVC tubes hidden throughout the course – some with live rats, some with dirty bedding, and some empty.  To put it simply – the aim of the game is for the dog to hunt through the straw to find all the live rat tubes.  But don’t worry – the rats aren’t harmed in Barn Hunt!  There are strict rules in place to keep the rats safe, and they live as pets in their off time.  My rats willingly climb into the tubes to work and enjoy teasing the dogs!
