Barn Hunt

A very popular sport sweeping the Nation is barn hunt. In this sport, dogs search out a live rat (protected by a strong PVC tube). They also learn how to tunnel through bales of straw or hay and climb onto the bales. It is a fun sport that lets your dog be a dog. To learn more visit The Barn Hunt Association page.

These classes are held at our Lawrenceville, GA facility taught by our two Barn Hunt Instructors, Rachel Anderson and Paula Nowak.
