Does your dog need a way to use to burn off extra energy or something to do?
Would you like to give your dog a job to do?
The sport of Mantrailing may be a perfect match for you.
Mantrailing ...is a search and rescue skill set that is quickly becoming popular with all dogs as a really fantastic sport to be involved in.
You and your dog learn to work together as a team .. to find a "missing person" who is well hidden from you!
Friends and family will be amazed with how fast your dog can find them.
Mantrailing is a great fun rewarding sport where dogs love showing us how well they can use their nose.
I have been writing about mantrailing for many years on this site although I have seldom mentioned the actual term of Man Trailing because I was writing to families and the public about training family dogs to find family in disasters, along with other dog skills.
The dog training lessons in Family Disaster Dogs book train family dogs to find friends and family using Mantrailing skills and the lesson in My Puppy Can Find Me children's book uses the same principle of training a dog to find people.
I will be posting upcoming training opportunities, workshops and seminars from different organizations and dog clubs that are welcoming the public to train with them.
Follow Family Disaster Dogs on Facebook or come back often to stay updated on events you may want to attend.
