Entries for our June Barn Hunt Test Close Next Week


Oriole Dog Training Club is hosting a Barn Hunt (BH) trial on June 4-5, 2016 in Severn, MD. The trial closes next week Friday (May 20th).  If you haven’t tried the sport yet, come see what it’s all about.

Please get your entries postmarked by May 20th to avoid a late fee. If you mailed your entry and don’t get a confirmation email within a few days, please contact me ASAP.

The rules for BH can be found at:


We allow move-ups between trials each day; with 4 trials, dogs could earn a title in one weekend (it takes 3 Qs to earn the Novice title).   And did you know – as of April 1, 2013, the AKC recognizes titles earned in Barn Hunt Association events.  (Owners may apply to have the titles recorded on their dogs’ AKC records).

We will  also be offering a Crazy 8s session on Sunday. At this time, dogs do not need to be registered with BHA to participate in Crazy 8s. The full set of rules can be found at:


(Crazy 8s does not show up on the on-line entry form, but is on the premium’s entry form. )

You can access the premium through the club’s website:


Or, through the BHA website:


If you have any questions about BH, please ask.

We hope you can join us!
