Mantrail with The DC

What is Mantrailing?

Mantrailing is an activity for training our dogs to find people by following their unique scent trail. All dogs have a natural ability to hunt and therefore Mantrailing provides them with an 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.

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 doggy sport activity is it is fully accessible to all people and their dogs, regardless of age, breed or ability. This often includes dogs with confidence and/or reactivity issues, as on all of our training scenarios, dogs are always worked one at a time in order to minimize these issues.

Why take part?

Mantrailing is a predominantly low impact activity, which unlike some doggy sports means there is less pressure and stress on dogs joints. We’ll always do our best to make sure our trails are accessible to all of our teams on the day. As well as providing both you and your dog with some physical exercise, Mantrailing also engages dogs’ incredible olfactory senses, giving them an intense mental workout. We find handlers have a fun time learning about their dogs too.

Its fantastic fun for both you and your dog! You will both enjoy the thrill of a successful search each and every time!
