Chris Puls is the founder, trainer and “rat wrangler” at the S.E. Indiana Barn Hunt Club.  She has been training dogs for 30 years and has used only force-free, positive reinforcement methods since first learning about them in 1999.  She has helped hundreds of people train their dogs for a variety of sports as well as problem solving and behavior modification. 

She was approved as a Barn Hunt Judge in August of 2014 and has Judged many trials in the area (typically 12 or more per year). 

She has owned a Rottweiler, Cattle Dogs and Beagles all of which lived long and full lives learning new skills their whole lives. Her current dogs are a Belgian Malinois that “does it all” and has multiple titles in several different venues including multiple RatChX titles in Barn Hunt!  He has also earned 50 Dog Scout badges.  And her Field Lab is the youngest dog to earn the Championship title at 11 month old!  Instinct to Champion in 5 months is a rare thing for any dog to accomplish, but especially a puppy! He continues to love the sport and compete for RatChX titles as a crowd favorite for his enthusiasm.

Barn Hunt has become Chris’ passion and she would love to meet you and your dog and help you both become successful competitors in the sport.
