Scottie Right

Earthdog is targeted to breeds that were originally bred to hunt vermin and other underground quarry. Man-made tunnels are set up for the dogs to go through in search of the quarry (rats in a secure box). The event is timed and starts out with a simple 10 ft tunnel with one right turn and increases in complexity as the dog progresses through the various levels.


Barn Hunt builds off of the traditional roles that many dog breeds had in helping to rid vermin (rats, mice, and the like) from farms, barns, crop storage areas, and homes. A rat (quarry) is placed in a secure tube and hidden in a course consisting of bales of hay with obstacles (tunnels and climbs) as well as decoy lures. The dog is graded by time needed to find the rat and alert the handler as to where the rats are and then the handler calls “rats” the judge then stops the clock. If the wrong tube was called, the judge will show the dog the correct tube.
