How Does this Work?
New to Barn Hunt? Start with Rat Familiarization to see how your dog reacts to a rat and move up to Instinct from there. Keep moving up in level as your dog shows interest.
Rat Familiarization: Your dog greets a rat in a cage up close and gets praised for showing interest
Instinct: 3 tubes are placed on the ground or in a cradle. One has a live rat, one has dirty bedding, and one is empty. Your dog must indicate which tube has the live rat
Novice: The 3 tubes mentioned above are hidden on a course of straw bales. Your dog must find and indicate the live rat as well as climb a bale with all 4 feet and go through a designated tunnel made of bales.
Open: Same requirements as Novice, except there are 2 rats, 2 tubes of dirty bedding and one empty.
Senior: Same requirements, but 4 rats, 3 dirty bedding tubes, and one empty
Masters: Unknown number of rats (1-5 rats possible). Handler must clear course after they believe all rats have been found
