Ombudsmen

The Barn Hunt Ombudsmen are a husband and wife team, both Barn Hunt judges. Janet and Michael Johnson have Shiba Inu and have run Barn Hunt events in Alaska since 2014. All competitors who have issues which are of concern but which they would rather not bring directly to Robin or the Advisory Committee are encouraged to email ombud@barnhunt.com.

Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee is a group of dedicated Barn Hunters who have wide ranging expertise in the sport. All are judges and several also have individual clubs. The Advisory Committee assists Robin in review and update of rules as well as decisions on difficult cases which occur in the sport.
