Barn Hunt

With barns still being used to store hay and straw…vermin like the norway rat are starting to move in to stay warm.  It is something farmers deal with….but cats are not the answer to large rodents…which can scare a cat away with one bite.

Farmers with terriers/herding breeds of all sorts/hybrids of prey driven breeds/and any breed that has a good nose and perseverance can have tons of fun in a new sport that has been designed to “train” dogs specifically to the scent of a live rat.

Can your dog search 30 bales of hay in under 3 minutes to find just one caged rat?

If you think so…check out Central Bark Canine Events of Central NY website or facebook page.  …

If you are wanting to train for something your dog LOVES to do….old or young dogs….then barn hunt is for your team!   check it out!062

  1. The first New York State Barn Hunt was at Grace Farms run by Eva and Todd and many of their dog friends. It was a Central Bark Canine Events of CNY event a year ago in October 2014. This year is their one year anniversary..and will be occurring on Halloween weekend. Come see how it is done…what fun it is…bring a dish to pass for lunch and a lawn chair!
