Emma Is a qualified Mantrailing UK
Mantrailing is an exciting new dog sport that teaches dogs to find people.
Do you want to...?
- Build a great relationship with your dog
- Increase your dogs confidence
- Spend time adventuring outdoors
- Attend a fun social activity on a regular basis
One of the many amazing things about this sport is it is fully accessible to all people and dogs, regardless of age, breed or disability. This includes dogs with confidence and reactivity issues, as dogs are always worked one at a time.
Each dog is worked one at a time so that they dont get distracted or worried by any other dog.
Therefore it is it is necessary thats dogs can wait safetly in the car until it is their turn.
Attendees can learn alot from observing the other dogs trailing behaviours. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask.
This means that some time will be spent in your car so please bring with you a bowl of water and some cooling matts (if warm), car sunshades etc,
Why should I take part?
Mantrailing is a low impact sport, which unlike some sports means there is less pressure and stress on your dogs joints. As well as providing physical exercise, Mantrailing also engages your dog's incredible olfactory senses, giving them an intense mental workout.
Most importantly, its fantastic fun for both you and your dog. You will never get tired of the buzz of a successful search!
This introduction course will get you and your dog started on your journey of Mantrailing. This class is for pet dogs only and will NOT allow you to become operational.
This course begins by walking you through the theory of Mantrailing and covers the science of scent, how dogs trail and how to keep your dog motivated by finding the right reward.
You will then be instructed in trailing your own dog using techniques to read your dog and know if they are on the trail and handle the lead correctly. - Mantrailing UK
