WHAT IS IT

Mantrailing is teaching your dog to find a specific human scent.

Using their amazing sense of smell we train them to follow a trail to a missing person 

HOW OLD MUST MY DOG BE?

As long as your puppy is vaccinated you can bring them Mantrailing.

This is a  low impact sport so its fantastic for old dogs as well as young dogs

MY DOG IS REACTIVE TO DOGS

We take all dogs, shy, reactive, loud, boisterous.

Dogs work one at a time and are always on a lead, other dogs in the group wait in their vehicles

MY DOG HAS POOR RECALL

All dogs work on a long line for Mantrailing so no need to worry that your dog will run off after something exciting.

Mantrailing helps to build focus and concentration

MY DOG WORRIES AROUND PEOPLE

Mantrailing will help your dog to build confidence around people.

Dogs learn that people in different places are the bringers of great rewards

MY DOG WON'T WORK FOR FOOD

Our introduction sessions will help us to find the best way to reward your dog. I have lots of ideas to suit all types and tastes to give your dog the best party ever

MY DOG ISN'T A GUN DOG

Mantrailing is great fun for any breed of dog.

As long as your dog has got a nose we can teach him to find a missing person

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

You will need a Y shape harness and a long lead, some plastic pots for your dog's rewards and a dog....or more than one

DO I NEED A WELL TRAINED DOG?

Your dog will be the expert at sniffing and finding the missing person

You don't need any heel work or obedience skills for Mantrailing

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU COME MANTRAILING

Each Mantrailing session is usually 3 hours long, we have a maximum of 6 dogs per session

Each dog will do 3 trails. Handlers take turns to hide for each other, you will always handle your own dog. Your dog will wait in your vehicle until it is your turn to find the missing person. Very quickly  your dog will progress from the Mantrailing For Beginners session to being a confident and brilliant Mantrailing dog. 

In the Beginners session we teach your dog all about the game, you will discover how it works for both ends of the lead and the way your dog likes to be rewarded for his amazing sniffing skills.

I am always with you whilst your dog is trailing so I can help you and your dog to feel calm and relaxed to ensure that the trail is successful. We don't have any missing people still missing 😂.

Once you have completed the Mantrailing For Beginners Session you and your dog can trail with any Mantrailing UK Instructor. There are progression booklets to fill in to keep tabs on your skills as well as badges you can earn to display with pride. You can even take assessments and work through the 3 levels of Mantrailing. 

Mantrailing is a very sociable activity, you will meet new friends and their amazing dogs, you will discover parts of the countryside and towns you never knew, your dog will learn to take new situations and people in their stride and will be exhausted after a session of Mantrailing. 

So all you need now is to click the button to let me know which session you would like to book .....see you soon.
