Intro Class



Intro to           Barn Hunt





Barn Hunt has been going strong for 5+ yrs now.  It is a fun dog sport designed to demonstrate a dog’s vermin hunting ability.  Dogs negotiate obstacle courses of straw to locate rats safely hidden in aerated heavy duty pvc tubes.  This fun game tests the dog’s speed, agility, scenting and discrimination abilities.  

The Intro Class is for dogs new to the sport of Barn Hunt or dogs whose human thinks they need a refresher meeting with the rat.  This class will introduce the handler to the sport of Barn Hunt while the dogs will be introduced to the rat in a cage and transition to finding the rat in the tube.   Additionally, the dog will begin to learn discrimination between the “real rat” in a tube vs the empty tube and litter tube.  This lays the foundation for all future hunting.

This class is taught by Victoria Hall, Barn Hunt judge and the founder of Barn Hunt Casa Grande.  Victoria has been training dogs for over 30 years, has had her own Master level dogs in Barn Hunt and trained & coached 1000’s more in the sport.  Victoria also competes in the sport of IGP (formerly IPO) having earned multiple titles and championships including 12th place in the World Doberman IPO competition in Italy in 2013 with her girl Vesna.   Victoria applies all her years of dog training and how dogs hunt and track to helping dogs learn this fun sport.  You can make an appointment with Victoria to arrange a special time for you and your best friend for an Intro.  Write Victoria at
