What are earth dog trials?

Earthdog Trials for Terriers

Earthdog trials are tests designed especially for toy terrier dogs, for the terrier line of the canine species once had this as their 'job' and were bred for it.

In this test, the dog must navigate through an underground tunnel and find her quarry -- often a rat. Once she has located the quarry, she must "work" the quarry, which includes barking, scratching and pawing at it. At all times, during the earthdog trial, the quarry is protected from actual physical harm.
