How many classes?
This course is four classes.
What is Mantrailing?
Mantrailing is teaching your dog to follow the scent of a missing person until they find them. Imagine Search and Rescue dogs searching for missing people in the mountains or police dogs finding runaway criminals.
If you want to try something new or have a hunting breed in need of an outlet then this could be the perfect activity for you.
What Your Dog Will Learn:
Your dog will learn to find a missing person across a variety of terrains and distances. Whilst we aim to be as skilled in our training as possible this course is intended for pet dogs and shouldn't be mistaken for a training course for operational dogs.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where do you run classes?

When does your next course start?
Immediately! Yes, really! We don't do courses. We run open-enrolment classes that means you can get started straight away. The content is designed so you won't miss anything.
Does my dog need to have done training before?
No, this is appropriate for total beginners. We only ask that your dog is friendly towards other dogs and people.
Will my dog be off-lead?
We leave it up to you as to whether you want to work your dog on or off-lead. Mantrailing can be done either way.
What age is appropriate for Mantrailing classes?
Appropriate for all dogs able to do an hour-long walk. We don't recommend it for very young puppies for this reason.

No, your class credits will remain on your account indefinitely so you don't have to worry about taking breaks or not being able to make classes.
Achievement Bandana & Certificate -
We believe that learning doesn't stop at puppyhood. That's why we give all attendees an achievement bandana, if your dog passes our mantrailing classes you will be awarded your Beginner Mantrialing Patch. This is the equivalent of a martial arts belt or Brownies badges.
If you choose to keep training you can earn various badges through our different classes and prove to the world just what an awesome team you make.
