A fun class for dogs that love to use their nose! Urban Rats will focus on introduction to rats used during sports like Happy Ratters and Barn Hunt. This environment will mimic a lot of what you see in an urban setting, encouraging the dogs to find rats. We welcome beginners with dogs who have not been introduced to rats previously and handlers who may be interested to try “hunting” in a different setting. 

Our goals will include:

  • Basic handling skills 
  • Team building for dogs and their owner
  • Basic rules overview for sports that involve rats
  • Developing drive
  • Searching and response
