Be a part of the exciting new sport of Barn Hunt!

Barn hunt is an exciting new dog sport recognized by AKC and UKC where dogs use their critter hunting instincts to search through a course of straw bales and signal their owner when a rat is found.  Rats are enclosed in a secure tube and are not harmed in any way.


Get Active K-9 LLC gives training sessions on an ongoing basis at Zodiac Ranch in Milford MI  and puts on Fun Matches and Barn Hunt Trials.  This is our Trial Entry site.  Choose your event, and place your entry.   Or Sign up for Training sessions below.


We had a great 2016 trial series.  We will soon be posting our events for 2017.  See below for events scheduled, and trials available to enter.  Most trials will be available for entries 3 months before the event.  When the trial is available for entry, you will see menu tabs at the top and side of this page for each event to download Premiums and enter classes.  Each trial has different prices, closing dates and information so make sure you read through each Premium before entering.  Make sure your dog has its Barn Hunt number before entering trials.  You may enter here online with your credit card or Paypal, or send in a paper entry with a check by printing out, and filling in the entry form in the Premium list.

In the meantime, you can schedule some training sessions at Zodiac Ranch.  Start with an Intro Class where your dog can meet a rat in an open cage.  Then progress to finding rats in tubes hidden among the straw bales.   Classes are in our unheated barn, so dress for the weather.

Sorry I can't keep up with posting training dates.  People with their dogs come out to practice through the week, just email me and let me know you would like to come out so I can schedule a time.
