Barn Hunt is based on the traditional roles of many breeds in ridding farms, barns, crops 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 has titles, levels of increasing difficulty and championships.

Barn Hunt is committed to creating a safe and fun sport for dogs, that also holds rat care at the highest level of consideration. No rats are ever harmed, they are safely tucked away in tubes.

Barn Hunt is a great sport for older dogs, and older people too! Tripod dogs can compete and so can deaf dogs.
