Our training programs are designed to be engaging adventures, fostering a strong bond between you and your dog while simultaneously equipping you both with valuable skills applicable in everyday life.

While designed for pet dogs, our assessments draw inspiration from operational scenarios, providing a unique and exciting dimension to your training. From Entry Level through to Level 5, the levels are designed to gradually prepare the Mantrailing teams to follow are in conditions as similar to a real search as possible.

All handlers must begin at Entry Level and pass each Level before attempting the next Assessment.  

For assessments that are booked as all day events, you will have the opportunity to do some training during the day along with your Assessment.

Entry Level is a crucial starting point for all dog teams embarking on their assessments. This assessment ensures that handlers and their dogs possess the foundational skills necessary for blind trails, setting the stage for a successful and rewarding training experience.
