For years, informal barn hunts were held in conjunction with earth dog events and terrier fun days, using various rules, and as something to enjoy with no pressure on handler or dog. But these informal events were never a sanctioned sport.
The Barn Hunt Association, LLC has created a sanctioned sport honoring the traditional role of dogs in ridding barns, homes, and properties of vermin.
Barn Hunt opens this fun sport up to any dog, of any size, type, breed or mix that can fit through an 18″ wide through approximately 22″ high tunnel. In Barn Hunt, you can earn titles and placements at levels from Instinct through Master, and Championships beyond Master.
