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! You learn to understand your dog’s body language; this comes in handy daily, when walking your dog.

  • How to start a trail and how to lay a trail;
  • Reading your dog while trailing;
