Go mantrailing

 Get connected with your dog, go mantrailing!

Mantrailing:  is to follow one person’s scent and identify that person. The trail can be laid in urban areas, suburbs, public parks or in shopping centre.

Dogs love it, they do it naturally! You can mantrail for fun or as a SAR team. Most important part of mantrailing is reading the dog and together with your dog you are on a hunt to find a “missing” person!
