Having a great relationship with our dogs is every owner's wish. Playing with your dog is a great way to build that bond and build your dog's confidence but sometimes it's hard to know what to do aside from the usual walks, runs or games of fetch. DOG SPORT is the answer.
Barn Hunt is the very old practice where farmers use dogs to track down and rid their barns of vermin.
The sport of Barn Hunt is a fun event that allows your dog to draw on its instinctual prey drive and an unparalleled sense of smell to methodically search through bales of straw to locate, and indicate when they have found the live rat.
Your dog will be challenged both mentally and physically but above all it is FUN for both you and your dog.
BARN HUNT IS DONE FOR THE SEASON
