Call in to speak with the host
Robin Nuttall has shown, trained, and titled my dogs in obedience, rally, agility, schutzhund, lure coursing and dock diving as well as K9 Nosework and tracking. I have shown in AKC, UKC, NADAC, ASCA, UDC, Ultimate Air, and more. She has now ventured into the new K9 Sport of Barn Hunting. The purpose of Barn Hunt is 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 also for any breed or mix of dog who loves to hunt and who can fit through an 18” wide gap between two hay bales. It will test speed, agility, and surefootedness. Barn Hunt is all inclusive and fun for any dog and human who wishes to play the game. Barn Hunt is a sporting event, and as such there will be levels of difficulty, titles, and championships to be attained. At all times, the safety of the dogs, handlers, and rats is to be of paramount importance. Rats will be humanely handled and safely confined in aerated PVC tubes; Barn Hunt is not intended to harm or kill rats. Tune-in to learn about this relatively new sport that is a twist on an age-old activity.
It's good to talk.
