Rat hunt is a fun game of hide and seek for your dog. Rats will be hidden in a course made of hay bales and your dogs will learn how to use their sense of smell to seek them out.

Dogs of all levels are welcome. We will be teaching dogs how to navigate a course, climb up on hay bales, go through tunnels and how to find rats. Rats are protected in PVC tubes and are not harmed. Dogs run "naked" so they do not get hung up on anything. Safety is always the most important thing, followed by fun.

What to bring:
  • Tasty treats or a high value toy
  • Crate, xpen or tie-up for your dog(s)
  • Chair
  • Water for you and your dog
  • Shade on hot days
  • Fans (optional)
