If your dog loves to chase squirrels and dig for moles, then they would love the sport of Barn Hunt. Dogs get to hunt for rats, which are safely enclosed in heavy PVC tubes that are hidden in hay bales.
The sport is for all dogs of all breeds, including mixed-breeds, like Hexie, who is pictured above. Hexie, formally known as RATCH Sweet Sixteen CDX BN GN RE, is the first All-American Dog to earn the Barn Hunt championship – known as the RATCH. She is owned by Tammy Roberts of Dawsonville, GA.
The American Kennel Club recognizes the titles of the Barn Hunt Association (BHA) for all dogs that are registered with the AKC. Get your dog enrolled today in the AKC Canine Partners program for all dogs: here
