Activities with your Farmdogs
The Barn Hunt
by Sally H Frankel
The Barn Hunt will test speed, agility,
and surefootedness of the dogs. The
Barn Hunt is all-inclusive and fun for
any dog and human who wishes to play
the game. Barn Hunt is a sporting
event, and as such there will be levels
of difficulty, titles, and championships
to be attained. While it can be used as
an instinct test, there is also a handler
component in that the handler must
signal when the dog has reached the
desired target PVC rat tube; thus, the
handler must know and have a
partnership with their dog. Teamwork
will win the game.

Where are they Now?
The first litter born in the United States was in 2001; a litter of one male. Several litters of various numbers of puppies have been whelped since then. Two Farmdogs had litters of seven bringing the average litter size to four or five puppies.
We plan to have each Newsletter feature a United States litter and to show how the Farmdogs are doing as adults. Our featured litters will not be selected in any special order.
