Introduction to Mantrailing Workshop

Unleashing Your Dog's Sniffing Skills!

What is Mantrailing?

Mantrailing is the sport of finding hidden people by following their scent trail with a dog – it is not only immensely fun, but can also be a competitive activity.

Although we do this for fun, the techniques used are the same techniques used to train search and rescue dogs.

It can take place in the countryside or an urban setting, and - as long as it is safe for the dogs weather wise - all year round. 

As with most scent-oriented activities, it is highly beneficial to your dog, providing them with both a stimulating and enjoyable experience!

Can any dog do Mantrailing?

Any Breed

Mantrailing is suitable for any breed - even though some breeds have more sensitive noses than others, all dogs are capable of doing it well. Did you know that in some scent detection studies, Pugs have been found to outperform German Shepherds!

Any Age

Mantrailing is low impact and dogs can set their own pace, making it suitable for any healthy dog from young puppies all the way up to ageing seniors. 

Suitable for dog reactive dogs

Given dogs work one at a time, Mantrailing is even suitable for dog-reactive dogs.
It is unfortunately though not suitable for human-reactive dogs.
