Barn Hunt – The Rat Hunting Game for All Dogs

Congratulations to SKC member Deb Borgo and Sami (Ch Glennhaven’s Belisama D’Borgo RA NJP ROMX PROM CGC) for qualifying with one leg toward a title and winning 4th in small dogs at the first official Barn Hunt Association Sanctioned Trial which took place April 13 & 14, 2013 in Columbia, MO.

The new sport of Barn Hunt is based on the hunting and teamwork skills historically used by “ratcatcher” canines in ridding barns of vermin. Dogs and handlers work as a team to locate and mark rats (safe in aerated tubes) hidden in a maze of straw or hay bales. The event is open to all dogs.
