Mantrailing is a dynamic and exhilarating search and rescue dog sport that taps into your dog's natural instincts. It involves your dog using their extraordinary sense of smell to locate a hidden person by following a scent trail. They’ll wear a harness and are attached to you on a long line. Your dog will be given a scent item (glove/hat etc) belonging to the person they are looking for. They will use that scent item to identify the persons trail and follow it until they reach their hiding place.  This engaging activity not only hones your dog's abilities but also deepens the bond between you and your four-legged friend.

Your dog will work in rural and urban areas. Mantrailing is a suitable activity for dogs of all ages, breeds and reactive dogs are welcome. 

If you have a reactive dog, certain locations will be suitable for starting training. Please check out the description under each date to see if this location will work for you and your reactive dog.
