Mantrailing is training dogs to find people for fun!
What Is Mantrailing
Mantrailing is a fast growing sport training dogs to find people by following their unique scent trail.
All dog's have a natural ability to hunt and therefore Mantrailing provides them with a natural outlet to do this in a safe, controlled and constructive way.
We teach them how to harness their amazing sense of smell and turn it into a super fun activity to do together as a sport.

✔ 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.
Why Take Part In Mantrailing?
Mantrailing is a low impact sport, which unlike some sports means there is less pressure and stress on your dogs joints (humans as well as it is done at a walk!) 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 from a successful search!

I started training because of my own experiences with my reactive dog Matty. I stumbled through and struggled with lots of conflicting and well-meaning advice that was unfortunately totally wrong for Matty.
I was devastated and that started me on my journey to not only help him but also help others finding themselves in the same situation.
The two things I love about being a dog trainer are seeing a dog who has been experiencing fear, anxiety or a lack of confidence, gain confidence in something and literally beam with pride.
The other is when a dog does something that totally amazes their owner in a good way, the look of total pride and love makes everything worthwhile.
I’m kind, force-free and compassionate with both dogs and humans. And I’d love to help you escape the strain and enjoy the life you deserve.
