Rat Sports are based on hunting and teamwork skills. The purpose of the Barn Hunt and the Brush Hunt events are to demonstrate teamwork between the handler and his dog. The dog must display his vermin hunting ability by finding and marking rats in a barn-like or field-like setting in which straw/hay bales are used. The handler must display his ability to read the dog’s signal.
There are no pre-requiste's for taking this class. Dogs are on leash to begin and there is plenty of room in the upper barn to have distance in between your turns.
Bringing soft treats, toys a 6 ft leash and possbily a crate to settle the dog when they aren't working.
