Mantrailing Intro Sessions

Mantrailing is a brilliant new and exciting dog sport that teaches you and your dog to find a hidden trail-layer. No prior training required.

The Mantrailing Introduction is a 3 hour workshop where we first teach some theory about Mantrailing, then practice the long-line handling. We’ll find the best reward for each dog and then off you go on 3 two-part trails, accompanied by your Instructor, so we can teach you and your doggy the game.

You’ll learn how to be a good trail layer for the other teams in your group, so each doggy has a fresh scent to follow with each trail on the day. There is no need to buy any equipment for the Intro Workshop. We have spares of everything you can borrow and “test-drive” on the day.

The Workshop is £60 including a certificate upon completion which enables you to then book on Continuation Sessions with any Mantrailing Instructor that we are aligned with, out and about.

Continuation sessions are 2 hours long and each doggy-handler team will do 3 two-part trails in the session. These sessions are held out and about, could be rural (National Trust Properties, Parks), urban, indoors (e.g. big office buildings or retail units), or for some, we go metro and trail in town centres.

Continuation sessions are £25

Dates and Locations for continuation sessions are published once a month and you can pick what suits. Teams can trail as little or often as they like. Some of our Trailing Teams join us once a month, others once a week, totally up to you.  

Mantrailing Benefits 

  • Builds on your great relationship with your dog 
  • Increases your dog’s confidence 
  • You spend time adventuring outdoors 
  • Attend a fun social activity on a regular basis 

Another one of the many awesome benefits of this sport is that it is fully accessible to all people and dogs, regardless of age, breed or ability. This includes dogs with confidence and reactivity issues, as dogs are always worked one at a time. 

Why should me and my dog take part? 

Mantrailing is a low impact sport. Unlike some dog sports, this means there is less pressure and stress on your dog’s joints. While providing physical exercise, Mantrailing also engages your dog’s incredible olfactory senses, giving them a profound mental workout. 

Most important of all, it’s first-class fun for both you and your dog. Neither of you will tire from the buzz of the next successful search! 

Thanks to your dog’s astounding nose and your own newly improved handling skills, can you be the perfect team that finds the ‘Hiding Person’?
