FOR DOGS OF ANY AGE
This is a one-off, two-and-a-half-hour workshop with our guest trainer Elliot Connor.
Mantrailing is the fastest growing dog sport in the UK and is a great way to stimulate and enrich your dog. It is the ultimate game of HIDE AND SEEK for dog lovers! We will teach your dog to find people using their specific scent.
With your dog’s incredible nose and your soon-to-be impeccable handling skills, you can be a fabulous trailing team in no time!
- Build a great relationship with your dog
- Increase your dog’s confidence
- Spend time adventuring outdoors
- Attend a fun social activity on a regular basis
One of the many amazing things about this sport is that 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. Basically if your dog has a nose you can have a go! We guarantee you will be amazed by their skill!
Mantrailing is a low impact sport, which unlike some sports means there is less pressure and stress on your dog’s joints. As well as providing physical exercise, mantrailing also engages your dog’s incredible olfactory senses, giving them an intense mental workout.
Most importantly, it’s fantastic fun for both you and your dog. You will never get tired of the buzz of a successful search!
A bit about your instructor, Elliot Connor
I trained in scent specific/mantrailing with Search & Rescue for 4 years and have my instructors certification with Scent Imprint For Dogs in Holland (https://www.scentimprint.com)
Scent Imprint have trained and worked dogs all over the world in detection and tracking from explosives and narcotics to wildlife conservation. I use their methods because dogs learn quickly and accurately and above all enjoy themselves.
Everything I teach is suitable for just about any dog including reactive ones as there is only ever 1 dog working at a time. You will find that your bond with your dog will become stronger and you will understand the dogs body language better.
I take the best parts of tracking, trailing and detection to enable the dog to find their target in the fastest and most direct way.
Only one dog is worked at a time, please ensure your dog is able to settle in the car between turns.
