Today, I’m thrilled to share with you the incredible journey I’ve been on with my two amazing Welsh Springer Spaniels, Trü and Cheeky, into the exhilarating fun of Barn Hunt. If you’re not familiar with Barn Hunt, let me tell you, it’s an absolute blast for both dogs and handlers alike!

Trü has been gaining confidence and has always had an impressive hunting instinct. She’s already achieved success with three Barn Hunt titles in Instinct (RATI), Novice (RATN), and Open (RATO). Watching her navigate the course with such determination and skill is nothing short of inspiring. And then there’s Cheeky, my spirited youngest Welshie, who’s following in Trü’s pawprints with her own RATI and RATN titles. She’s eagerly gearing up to earn her RATO title and has her first leg already. Their enthusiasm for the sport is infectious, and it’s impossible not to get caught up in the excitement when we step into the ring together.

One of the key ingredients to our success in Barn Hunt has been our incredible instructor, Aleta Channell. Aleta’s passion for the sport shines through in every session, and her expertise has been instrumental in helping Trü and Cheeky hone their skills and reach new heights. Her guidance, patience, and encouragement have been invaluable, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have her by our side on this journey.

As for Trü, Cheeky, and me, we’re eagerly looking forward to our next Barn Hunt adventure, filled with challenges, excitement, and plenty of tail-wagging fun. Who knows what new accomplishments await us? One thing’s for sure – with Trü, Cheeky, and Aleta by my side, the journey is bound to be unforgettable!

So, if you’re ready to embark on an exciting new adventure with your dogs, why not give Barn Hunt a try? Trust me, you won’t regret it!
