Barn Hunt is based on the traditional roles of many breeds in ridding farms, barns, crop storage areas, and homes of destructive vermin. 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 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 beloved family pets. They jump eagerly into their safe, comfortable aerated tubes and truly enjoy interacting with the dogs. This is a great sport for older dogs, and older people too! Tripod dogs can compete, and so can deaf dogs. Dogs 6 months of age or older. A BHA registration number IS required
We hope you try it, we think you'll like it! All dogs welcome regardless of breed

What Our participants Are Saying
"I can't say enough for Olympic Kennel Club Dog Show. It is very hard to pull this all together and offer so much for so many venues of training. OKC has put great time and effort to see that all exhibitors have an opportunity to show. I personally thank OKC for that opportunity as I show in Obedience, Barn Hunt, Dock Diving, Coursing and now working Agility. You can pick and choose and have fun everyday. Thank you OKC ! ."
