Scent training and Mantrailing are activities that both you and your dog can enjoy. They are exciting, rewarding and most of all, fun!
Check out our video below for a quick overview of our sessions.
Your Dog Will Love It!
Mantrailing is a fast growing, exciting new dog sport which teaches you and your dog to find a missing person.
Your dog has an incredible nose with up to 300 million olfactory receptors. With their skill alongside our training we will teach you to work as a team to hunt them down in the amazing game of ‘mantrailing’
Victoria is a brilliant trainer. My dog Harper and I are currently taking a scent work course with Victoria. We have also completed the introduction afternoon of mantrailiing. The training is to a high standard. Victoria is a positive individual, who is experienced and wonderful with both the dogs and their handlers. Highly recommended
We absolutely love taking part in mantrailiing with Victoria. She given excellent training and makes everyone and their dogs feel at ease. Most importantly our dogs have the best time! Cant recommend Victoria’s mantrailiing enough for anyone wanting to have a go at this fantastic dog sport, every dog and owner can get involved !
We have thoroughly enjoyed our one to one scent work classes with our puppy. He loves the classes and I feel like he progresses really well each week. We would definitely recommend.
Cannot rate them highly enough. Did an introduction to mantrailiing with them and they couldn’t have been more accommodating. Explained every step of the way what we were doing, and were able to adapt how to do it to my dogs specific drive. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Would You Like...
to turn your pet dog into a ‘detection dog’?
to work as a team and have a great bond with your dog?
to come along to fun, engaging workshops or trials?
Well look no further…….. Scent work covers all of these.
Classes are for small groups. Dogs who attend classes which are indoors may be expected to be worked alongside each other. The information will be given specific to each venue.
These could be longer classes or one off events. Information about the environment for learning will be within each description, so dogs who may be more reactive could also take part (please check the booking specifics).
Events which can offer a competitive element, but dogs are still worked individually – allowing reactive dogs to take part in timed, managed events – check out bookings for these.
Half day or full day sessions focused on specific aspects. These can be hosted via our head trainer Victoria, or guest trainer who comes along to our chosen venue. Times and prices will be depending on location and trainer.
These are suitable for all dogs. We can work individually with each dogs training needs and cater solely for them without distractions. These often work well for clients who struggle with class timings or locations.
