Are you looking for something fun to do with your dog? Then try Barn Hunt! Any breed or mix breed of dog, young or old can do!

This popular dog sport simulates the task of ridding grain mills and hay barns of rats, except no rats are harmed. Live rats are put in ventilated PVC tubes and hidden in a stack of hay bales. The dogs climb and crawl through hay tunnels while using their natural hunting instincts to find the rat in the tube.

Dogs are first introduced to the rat in a wire cage and then to the rat in the tube, before released to search for a hidden rat tube. As the dog has successful hunts, the hay course gets more challenging and more rats to find.

Barn Hunt practice/training are held once a month. 30 minutes sessions for $20, prescheduled. The next practice November 6th & 7th, 2021. Click here to sign up
