Barn Hunt

Barn Hunt is a dog sport that tests a dog’s natural hunting instincts in a safe and controlled environment. In this activity, dogs navigate through a course made up of straw or hay bales, searching for hidden tubes containing live, safely enclosed rats. The rats are never harmed and are protected by secure tubes. The goal is for the dog to locate the rats within a set time limit, showcasing their keen sense of smell and hunting abilities. Barn Hunt is an inclusive sport, welcoming dogs of all breeds and sizes, and it provides a fun and stimulating challenge that strengthens the bond between dogs and their handlers.
