Test Your Dogs Dog’s Vermin Hunting Ability at the “Barn Hunt” Workshop – May 21, 2017

“Barn Hunt” Workshop at Double S Feed on Sunday May 21, 2017 at 2pm

Barn Hunt is a fun new awesome dog sport designed to demonstrate a dog’s vermin hunting ability.  Dogs negotiate obstacle courses of straw to locate rats safely hidden in aerated heavy duty pvc tubes.  This fun game tests the dog’s speed, agility, scenting and discrimination abilities.  Dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes may participate.  Barn Hunt rules can be found at www.barnhunt.com. The Intro Workshop will introduce the handlers to the sport of Barn Hunt and its history while the dogs will be introduced to the rat in a cage and transition to finding the rat in the tube.   We’ll follow that with some basic discrimination to imprint the behaviors we want the dog to use.

This workshop is for dogs new to the sport or dogs whose human thinks they need a refresher meeting with the rat. This workshop will be taught by Victoria Hall, Barn Hunt judge and the founder of Barn Hunt Casa Grande.  Victoria has been training dogs for over 30 years, has Master level dogs in Barn Hunt and trains & competes in the sport of IPO having earned multiple titles and championships from local to international levels.    Applying all her years of dog training and observing dog hunting behavior she has been successfully helping dogs learn this sport for 3 years.  She was awarded the 2016 Zipper Award for her dedication and work helping people learn and enjoy Barn Hunt.

Double S Feed is located at 14335 Olde Highway 80, El Cajon, CA 92021. (619) 443-9211 for more info contact Rita Gallant rita@doublestackandfeed.com
