So since we're doing this, I figured I would start a thread on it!

NOLA Barn Hunt Friends put on an introduction to Barn Hunt and a Fun Test that we participated in to see about getting into this dog sport. We had a great time and it was a totally new experience for us. We are entering our first real trial June 13 in Instinct and Novice. We have some practice to do with recall and tunneling but we will see how we do!

Here is a video and some photos from the Fun Test & Intro.

He looks like he had so much fun! Do they always get to work with other handlers?

That is me in the blue shirt. lol!

The first part when the lady in gray had him, we were just working on introducing him to the tunnels.

George was my camera guy for the day. Lol.

And honestly, you can have someone else handling the dog for you when you enter into a trial.

How much others can work with your dog outside of the intro though, I'm unsure of.

She was the "tunnel queen" so they had her helping everyone introduce their dogs for the first time. She also had some REALLY great treats so of course my little a-hole went through the tunnels for her. Hahaha.

Ashleigh, great pics and looks like so much fun. Do you know if I could find this type of sport my way? I think Miya would love doing that. Any kind of info that I could look up that you know about would be greatly appreciated.

Renee, I know you're in West Texas but there is this group on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/525501257527046/

You can also check out the Barn Hunt website to see if there are any upcoming events near you:
http://www.barnhunt.com/eventcal.html

It's a relatively new sport (like literally was founded in 2013/2014) so it may not be in an area closer to you but you can always look to see with any area clubs if there is one closer!

Thank you, I will check them out. Working dogs are more the norm here than pets(excluding the chis that are plentiful here, lol). So I would think that the barn hunt would become popular here. If not close enough to participate on a regular basis, perhaps close enough to watch one. Thanks again!!

Cool pictures! Mishka looks like he was really into it too! What is in that canister? Is it something with a scent or a live critter?

No problem! Hopefully you can make it out to one to watch! I'm glad our club offered the Fun Test and Intro because it let's you try and learn the rules of the game without it being a real trial to worry about. And the people give you pointers on how to work with your dog better and gives the dog an opportunity to meet the rat and see how they react to it.

It's a live rat. Very Happy

Barn Hunt has different classes - Instinct, Novice, Open, Master, Senior

In Instinct there are three tubes laid out in the open in a row (one empty, one with litter, and one with the rat) and the dog has to indicate which one has the rat in it.

Novice they have to find the tube with the rat that is hidden in the course, but also execute a climb and tunnel.

Open, Master, and Senior the course gets more complicated and there are many more rat tubes and litter tubes they have to indicate.

Live rat? Oh wow! Kinda gross, LOL. Barn Hunt sounds really fun though, and great experiences for Mishka as well. I look forward to seeing more of this Ashleigh Smile

My father worked alongside, and trained, dogs for U.S Customs, they use a "scent" based thing to look for, that's why I asked you what they use in the barn hunt . For some reason I really didn't expect a live animal to be in there, LOL, but it DOES make total sense.

So we had our first trial yesterday! We entered in Instinct and Novice.

We got our first Q!



Just in Instinct but it's a start. Our Novice run went really well until Mishka decided he wanted to roll in the straw and not go through the tunnel. He provided an entertaining run for everyone though. Razz


Someone made the cutest rat cake. XD



And they had a cute photo setup as well for the beach theme.



I was by myself so I have no pictures or videos of our runs but there was a photographer taking photos so I'll hopefully have some at a later time.

We will be exhibiting in the September trial so we will take the next few months to work on getting a solid tunnel and recall. And hopefully we can Q or title in Novice next time!

Looks like a few people and dogs were having fun. Now, would you explain "Q" for those of us who might be dense?

I had the same question - I'm guessing "qualify" ?

Haha. I was too busy about to fall on the floor laughing myself. Everyone was talking about it so it was hilarious. XD

Yep, like Amy said it's a qualifying point. For Instinct you only need one Q to get the RATI, Novice you need 3 Qs to get RATN title, Open is also 3 Qs to title, and so on and so fourth. Smile

Thank you guys! Next time we're doing the whole weekend which is exhausting but it will be worth it! I'm hoping it only takes a week or so to get the pictures and I'll be sure to share them. Smile

Wow, Ashleigh - I always thought of Mishka as a black and white. He's much more silvery in these pics.

He looks like such a pro...right up to the rollin' in the hay picture. Looks like a lot of fun.
