Thanks for the added information. I really wasn't that worried. I've seen and heard of their protection. Guess I took a misstep on trying to make a funny. I apologize.

Congratulations on the RATN! Your comment made me laugh - my sister-in-law is training her Malinois for SAR. She told me that one of the members of their SAR group has a cap with "Trust the dog" embroidered on it. It's hard to not make assumptions about things but the dogs are unencumbered by our predisposition to worry that we found things too quickly.

Thank you!

Since I volunteered as a rat wrangler I learned a lot!

1. Too many people are talking (find it, look here, tunnel...)and not paying attn. to their dog. Many times once the dog finds it and the handler isn't paying attn. they won't go back to that spot because they believe they already showed the handler where the rat was.

2. My dog DOES have a signal, 2 in fact, sometimes she points and sometimes she pounces, BUT on our first trial run she did neither and just kept going back to the same spot so I called it. IF YOUR DOG KEEPS GOING BACK STOP REDIRECTING THEM!!! So many times this one happened because the handler thought they knew where the rat was and called it wrong.

Dax went to her first Barn Hunt today. First we learned about the sport and then we were introduced to the rats and hay bales. We were divided into two groups. First it was rat introduction and then we switch and went to hay bales. Dax was hesitate to enter the tunnels at first then after several attempts she went in. Never did get the climb. After lunch we did 2 fun runs. Dax's first time was one minute and the second time was one minute 30 seconds. After today I know that my heart is 100% NoseWork and will continue with that sport. It was a good time bonding however Barn Hunt is not for us.

This is a copy and paste test.....

Alberta's Inaugural Barn Hunt Trial - Introduction to dBella Dobermans.


Dang almost worked.

Anywho, I like dbella Dobes and noticed on their blog that gerbals are used instead of rats, as Alberta tries to be a rat free zone.

http://www.dbelladobermans.com/blog/...rn-hunt-trial/

There I think it worked this time.

Yes, gerbils are allowed, but only in locales where pet rats are illegal.

Barn hunt went well today.
Tank was on point and very interested in what wa going on.
Sienna was interested but distractable. She did show interest and ability so we're looking forward to doing more work with her.

UDC Nationals Barn Hunt

Ivan will be doing barn hunt for the first time at Nationals. I didn't see much of a description, so I have no idea what to expect. Considering his hatred of squirrels, I don't think it will take him long to pick it up.

Should be interesting! I love watching dogs play at barn hunt.

My previous Doberman Hannah loved it from day one, she wanted to kill the tubes holding the rats upon first sight.

My Dane Finnegan has a slight dislike of the rats, but will humor me and just thinks of them as another odor for nosework. He enjoys playing on the hay bales, is all about climbing and lately, about tunneling.

My current Doberman Addie just started classes. I thought she would be all about getting at the rats, but she is more like my Dane. She can be convinced that rat smell pays, but she isn't intrinsically motivated to find them. I think Addie would be super excited to chase a rat, but since they don't move much in the tubes, she doesn't find them that interesting yet.

I know my girl would love to barn hunt. She chases and goes after everything that moves.

She has gotten two moles in my yard with the second one being a few days ago.

I know she would be good at finding them, but not sure how trainable she would be to "stop" once she found one. She tends to go overboard with her excitement.

I've got a friend who's dog with super high prey drive (successful killer of woodchucks and other smallish wild animals) absolutely hates barnhunt, because she can't get to the rats and kill them.

Check on the BHA website to see if there is a club near you. A lot of them offer clinics and/or classes. Otherwise, just teaching your dog to go through a tunnel and climb on stuff is helpful. Some people teach barnhunt like the do regular nosework, of course, using the rats instead of oils.

Jazzy does kill them, but I don't think she means to. She likes to play with them.

She killed so many lizards last summer. She carries them around and then drops them so she can chase them again. She actually acts like a cat when she's playing. Lol

You could be right though.

Richter and Sypha both earned their RATI last weekend. They tried Novice runs, too...they found the rats easily, had no trouble with the climb, but need to learn how to tunnel, so no Q's. Tunnels in BH are apparently very different than agility tunnels

Finn and Adele were also at a barn hunt trial this weekend. Finn already had his RATI, and had two novice runs with no Q. However, he was the most relaxed I've seen him at a barn hunt trial, especially in the blind, which was a huge win for us! Finn practices barn hunt probably at the open or senior level, but has a hard time trialing where no food is present.

This was Addie's first trial and she got her RATI and two legs towards her RATN! She is a super sniffer, I have been very happy with her progress in barn hunt and nosework.
