Happy Ratters® is Coming to Barns and Noses!

We’re excited to announce a new way to challenge you and your dog!

Happy Ratters is a fun teamwork sport based on urban rat hunting. No straw is used in Happy Ratters, and the rats are contained in vented tubes. Dogs search in the ring for rats in an environment similar to a city alley. However, the bags, boxes, trash, and odds and ends are all CLEAN. Dogs will also be required to successfully complete certain challenges in addition to finding rats.

Happy Ratters is a totally separate sport with different rules and titles than other organizations.

Classes will be taught in a group format, and our first offering of classes are for entry level teams who have never searched for rats or have very limited experience hunting for rats.

We are putting classes together now and enrollment will be limited. The cost is $100.00 per 4 week session. Classes will be one-hour long, and will be held on Wednesdays at 4:30, 6:00, and 7:30 pm beginning Wednesday, June 30, 2021.

If you are interested in signing up for Happy Ratters, please email Beth Mann at info@barnsandnoses.com.

We look forward to seeing you and your dog in class!
