About our Barn Hunt Slip Leash


So, your dog loves rats. 

Hunting for rats is quickly becoming the #1 weekend activity of pet and sports dogs all over North America. With minimal training requirements, what’s not to love?

Welcome to Barn Hunt for dogs.

Collar with fleece

The collar of your slip lead is embroidered with a heart and rat, as if to say “I love rats.” The collar is made of strong webbing, and is backed with fleece to provide color and comfort for your dog. 

At the end of the collar, the D rings attach to a slip section that is 10″ long. This area allows you to open up the collar widely to easily get it over your dog’s head when they are excited to get started.

Personalized Dog Leash

Up to 10 embroidery text characters (including spaces) are included with your purchase. This is stitched on the leash handle in a font of your choice. You can also let Brie pick out a font that will suit the overall look of your leash by selecting “Brie’s choice.”


More customizations | Trial Prizes 

Need even more personalization? We can create simple embroidery symbols from scratch to make trial prizes or a custom gift.

If your dog is nervous about being slipped, or difficult to release in the barn, we encourage adding a buckle to your slip collar. This will make entering and exiting the ring much easier. Learn more about how adding a buckle to your slip leash can improve your ringside experience.

For dogs of any size

This special nylon slip celebrating rat sports comes in either 1″ or 1.5″ collar widths. The appropriate width will depend on the size of your dog and the shape of their neck. We prefer 1.5″ wide collars for strong pullers to distribute the force of the pulling. It also shows the embroidery better. Smaller dogs with shorter necks will need a 1″ collar.

If you have a mini dog with a neck measurement of 11″ or less, you might like our small dog slip leash, which has a 3/4″ collar and is thinner and lighter than the rest of our competition slip leashes.

About Rat Sports | Barn Hunt Trials for Dogs

Ratting goes by a few different names depending on what organization(s) you compete in.

In the United States, rat sports are referred to as “Barn Hunt” and is governed by the Barn Hunt Association. Both the AKC and the CKC recognize BHA-given titles.

In Canada, rat sports are referred to as “ratting” and is governed by Rats! Canada. There are several games, or components of the overall sport including barn ratting, brush hunting, go to ground, and earthdog. 




The collar of your lead will be custom sized to the neck measurement you provide. The collar and leash do not detach from one another, they are all in one piece. 

Leash Length

Each slip leash is approximately 5 ft long. This is measured from the base of the collar starting with the end of the D rings all the way to the end of the leash handle. If you need your leash to be a different length than 5 ft, please click here to add a leash length modification to your order.

Made to Order | Just for your dog

Brie will construct your martingale leash from scratch when you order, according to your color choices and embroidery specifications.

Brie uses high strength threads and metal hardware to make each seam. Quality is priority! Her sewing machines punch through several layers of material as if it was butter. Brie has carefully sourced materials so your gear will withstand the tests a dog will put it through. 


Collar Measuring

Take a measuring tape and place it softly but securely around your dog’s neck. Do not place any more than one finger between your dog’s neck and measuring tape. If the measurement reads between sizes, size down. Do not size up or add “wiggle room.” The collar must be the exact size of your dog’s neck in order for it to tighten snugly. It’s very important to size down so your dog can’t back out of their slip leash! Any extra room between their neck and the collar when the collar is pulled tight could let them escape. Visit Brie’s slip leash sizing guide for more information on measuring your dog.

Processing times | Leash for barn hunt

Handcrafting your barn hunt slip lead takes time. Brie typically takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete and ship custom leashes. This allows her to focus on the details and get your order right! Processing times do vary by the time of year and number of orders that Brie is working on. Therefore, we recommend double check the current processing time in the store banner. If you are on a deadline, we suggest that you skip the line by rushing your order

Check your email regularly after you place an order for custom gear. Brie will keep you posted on her progress as she creates your barn hunt lead.
