MDTC Barn Hunt Activities

MDTC is pleased to offer Barn Hunt Classes and Trials. Barn Hunt is the new and quickly growing dog sport across the country! In a Barn Hunt, there is a simple maze of straw bales, with plastic tubes hidden in the maze containing live rats. The dog must climb on a bale with all four feet, go through a tunnel, and alert the owner to the rat -- all in a specified amount of time. Barn Hunt has titles, levels of increasing difficulty, and championships. Barn Hunt is an independent sport, but titles are recognized by the American Kennel Club
