  • TIME SLOTS HAVE CHANGED, GO TO DISCUSSION PAGE TO GET NEW TIME SLOTS.

    ONLY ONE DOG IN THE RING AT A TIME.  OR IF YOU CAN'T SEE THE SIGN UP ON "DISCUSSIONS", SEND SHAN  AN EMAIL WITH A SUGGESTED TIME SLOT.  SHE WILL GET AS CLOSE AS SHE CAN......FIRST COME - FIRST SERVE.

    This class is open to ALL DOG BREEDS, and is designed for dogs of any age, and puppies at least 6 months old who are interested in the sport of Barn Hunt for fun or competition. No prior training is required.  If your dog can sniff, they can Barn Hunt.  Due to the nature of this sport only one dog will be working at a time on the course. 

    Training topics and behaviors taught in classes will include:

    > Overview of Barn Hunt Rules
    > Introducing your dog to a live Rat
    > How to navigate a hay maze
    >Trial preparation
    >The climb element
    >The tunnel element
    >Locating the correct tube containing a live Rat
    >Novice, Open, Senior level training as you and your dog progress

    These skills in particular will be worked on at length during class in order to prepare you and your dog for the Instinct and Novice or above classes at a BHA Sanctioned trial. This includes helping the handler learn to “read” their dog so they can differentiate between a live Rat in a PVC tube, from a tube filled with used litter or tube that is a completely empty.

    Please bring a hungry dog to class along with small sized soft treats. A flat buckle collar or harness is to be used during training. Please bring a six foot lead (no leads made of chain). Bring fresh water and a bowl for your dog, along with an x-pen or crate for your dog. If not already on file, you must bring and updated copy of your shot records.

      Thank you for your interest in our Barn Hunt Class. At this moment the first open time is at 12:00noon. Each dog signs up for a 20 minute time slot because only one dog in the ring at a time. If you want to do all three, that would be 12:00n, 12:20pm, & 12:40pm. If yes, please give me the dog's names. Looking forward to meeting you and your pups.....Shan

      Thanks, that will be fine. If by chance an earlier time opens up, let us know. It's supposed to be over 100 and that's a little hot for our prey to be in their tubes in the sun. Our dogs are Remmie, Reggie and Chuck.
