Rodent Adventure Tracking (RAT)™ is an interdisciplinary sport that combines scents and obstacles to engage a dog’s five senses and express their instincts in an urban setting. Dogs apply their hunting instincts to find hidden rodents. Everyday objects found in homes and basements such as fabric, boxes, boards, etc. are used to hide the rodents and add difficulty. This tests the dog’s ability to hunt and the handler’s ability to read the dog.
The sport also includes obstacles that test the dog’s agility, balance, confidence, and creativity. Courses are set up to allow dogs to climb, tunnel, balance, jump, crawl and display other shows of athleticism in pursuit of the rodent. RAT is for any dog and handler, regardless of age and physical ability. This is a sporting event, and as such there are levels of difficulty. RAT is a solo sport, allowing dogs with fear, anxiety, or reactivity to participate and build confidence in a safe environment.
