We’ll be introduced to the sport of Barn Hunt, which is “designed to demonstrate a dog’s vermin hunting ability in finding and marking rats in a “barn-like” setting, using straw/hay bales to introduce climbing and tunneling obstacles in the dog’s path. Barn Hunt is based on the skills historically used by itinerant “ratcatchers” in traveling the countryside, ridding farms of vermin, thus helping conserve and preserve food grains and cutting down on disease.” While many of us don’t use these skills in our daily lives, teaching our dogs new behaviors and engaging their natural instincts allows us to mentally challenge our dogs and enhance their quality of life.
This is also a great way to get more in tune with understanding your dog's specific body language and signals.
Cost range $10-20 (depending upon number of attendees) payable to Havenlea Dog Training Center upon arrival.
