Barn Hunt is the new and quickly growing dog sport catching fire across the country! Barn Hunt is based on
the traditional roles of many breeds in ridding farms, barns, crop storage areas, and homes of destructive
vermin. Some breeds were specifically created to fill this role, and for many of those breeds, Barn Hunt
provides their first true opportunity for responsible breeders to test proper working traits in their dogs.
Barn Hunt is also open to any dog of any breed or mix who wishes to play the game and can fit through an
18" wide by bale-height tall tunnel. Barn Hunt has titles, levels of increasing difficulty, and championships.
Barn Hunt is an independent sport, but titles are recognized by both the American Kennel Club (AKC) and
United Kennel Club (UKC).

Barn Hunt is committed to creating a safe and fun sport for dogs, that also holds rat care at the highest
level of consideration. The rats used in Barn Hunt are often beloved family pets. They jump eagerly into
their safe, comfortable aerated tubes and truly enjoy interacting with the dogs.

We're a great sport for older dogs, and older people too! Tripod dogs can compete, and so can deaf dogs.
To get started first read the rules, then find a club near you, or even think about forming your own club.
You can also find events on the event calendar. We hope you try it, we think you'll like it!
