Barn Hunt




At Zodiac Ranch

See information below


Barn hunt is an exciting new dog sport where dogs use their vermin hunting instincts to search through a course of straw bales and signal their owner when a rat target is found.  Rats are encased in a secure tube and are not harmed in any way.


These training sessions are geared to introducing you and your dog to the exciting new sport of Barn Hunt.

Training session #1- Intro to Barn Hunting - If your dog is new to Barn Hunt, this is where you need to start.  You will introduce your dog to the rat, tunnels and climbing on bales.

Training Session 2- Instinct and Novice Training - Build on your skills learned in the Intro class, and teach your dog how to work and search for the hidden rat in a course of straw bales.  This class is for dogs that are working on their basic Barn Hunt skills,looking for one rat, and tunnels and climbs.

Training Session 3 - Open Training- As dogs progress in their skills, they need to learn to search for two rats at a time and do more complex tunnels and climbs.      

Class size will be kept small so the dogs will get plenty of practice time, The safety of the dogs, rats and handlers are of paramount importance.  All breeds and mixed breeds are welcome.

 Price is $15.00 for 25 min individual session, $30 per hour for multiple dogs.
