Mònica started her mantrailing career in 2014 when she attented a seminar with Kevin Kocher. That's when her passion for mantrailing started. She has been learning, training and teaching mantrailing ever since. She has learned and continues learning mantrailing from many different INBTI instructors from the US, Austria, Hungary..., most of them in Law Enforncement and SAR. She is currently instructing in seminars in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary. She loves teaching and has a lot of experience training operational and non operational teams.
The goal is to provide participants with basic knowledge about mantrailing
and The Kocher Method in particular. At the end of the seminar, participants should have the necessary tools and knowledge to be able to progress in their training. In the case of seminar where participants are already familiar with mantraling, the goal will be to deepen the knowledge of the participants, provide the point of view or approach of the INBTI and help them progress in their training.
This is the perfect course for you if you have:
- participated in training a Mantrailing dog for Search and Rescue.
- have an operational dog team wanting to refresh and develop their skills.
- are training for the sport of Mantrailing and want to further develop and advance their skills.
It consists of two parts: theory and practice. Theory will be delivered in the classroom and out on the trails. Students are advised to bring notepad and pen.
For a good development of the course, dog teams (1 handler plus dog) are limited to 7 (maximum) and 7 (maximum) spectators.
The number of trails that can be done per day depends on the teams, the environment and the length & age of trails themselves.
All students (including spectators) are expected to collaborate in all aspects of the course and will be required to partake in roles such as flanker and missing person.
Who can apply
Open to anyone who is currently training a Mantrailing dog operationally or for sport. Each trail can be adapted for each team. Those who are new to Mantrailing can learn for those more experienced. Experienced Mantrailing handlers can learn from the instruction given to those less experienced.
