Welcome to Barn Hunt
For years, informal barn hunts have been done in conjunction with earthdog events and terrier fun days, using various rules, and as something to enjoy with no pressure on handler or dog. But these informal events have never been a sanctioned sport. The Barn Hunt Association, LLC has created a sanctioned sport honoring the traditional role of “ratcatchers” in ridding barns and properties of vermin. Barn Hunt opens this fun sport up to any dog, of (almost) any size, type or breed. In Barn Hunt, you can earn titles and placements at levels from Instinct through Master, and even Championships and beyond.
As Barn Hunt rapidly expands and grows, we want to hear from you. Join our facebook page and yahoogroup , where we will be actively discussing rules, etc. Look above at the Events link to find upcoming events, and at the club locator map to find clubs in your area.
Dogs must be registered with the BHA to enter sanctioned trials. The registration form can be linked to on the right or through the top menu.
NOTE: The Barn Hunt Office will be closed from May 13 through May 21.
No registrations or trial results will be processed during that time.
