From the back cover:

“Barn Hunt is the fastest growing dog sport to hit North America since dog agility, and it is becoming more popular every day.  This growth is no surprise – Barn Hunt is great fun for people and dogs!  It takes a dog’s natural instinct to find quarry, builds in a requirement for teamwork, and offers plenty of challenge and strategy for both dog and human.

Barn Hunt provides excellent physical and mental stimulation for your dog, and builds confidence.  Through their training, teams build stronger bonds and better communication and can develop a real ‘conversation’ that benefits the pair at home and beyond.  This sport is often found by people looking for ‘jobs’ for their dogs, be they older senior dogs that have retired from a vibrant ability career, dogs that love crittering at home, or dogs that are working through social challenges.  There are all types and all motivations of dogs.

Initial introductions to Barn Hunt are often straightforward, with teams experiencing a high level of success, but as the team progresses, more skills, problem-solving, and proofing are needed to succeed.

This book is for those new to the sport as well as for the seasoned Barn Hunt instructor and exhibitor.  It is intended to give you an in-depth look at the sport, including how to prepare your dog for trials and how to work  through problems with proofing, training drills, and other techniques.

One caution here:  not only is Barn Hunt somewhat addictive, it is often a ‘gateway’ sport.  That means trying Barn Hunt may lead you and your dog to other dog sports such as Nosework, Agility, and Obedience.  You have been warned – once you try Barn Hunt, your life will not be the same!”
