INTRODUCTION TO THE SPORT OF BARN HUNT
Open to ALL DOGS. You do NOT need to be registered with Barn Hunt Association, LLC, to participate.
At this workshop we will introduce dogs and humans to the elements of Barn Hunting. This includes rules, rat introduction, building prey drive, climbing and tunneling with straw, finding the rat in a tube on an Instinct course, and practice on a Novice type course. We will be working in an air-conditioned building.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS AN INSTRUCTIONAL EVENT WITH ATTENTION TO INDIVIDUAL DOG/HANDLER TEAMS. THEREFORE, ENTRIES ARE LIMITED AND ARE BY PRE-ENTRY ONLY.
Introduction to the Sport of Barn Hunt starts at 9 am with door opening to the gym at 8 am so that you can set up your crate, sign in, and get settled. The morning session is a demo, lecture, and actual introduction of a live rat to the dog. The afternoon session is a mock Barn Hunt Trial with Instinct and Novice classes, just as you would encounter at an actual Barn Hunt Show. Intro usually ends at 2 - 3 pm, depending on the group of dogs that we have.
FEE: $75 per handler/dog team; $70 for second dog with same handler; $65 for third dog with same handler. $20 for auditors without a dog.
