"Mantrailing" means the "search for humans based on their scent trail". Everyone permanently loses skin parts, hair and other smallest scent particles that make up an individual scent trail. This track is imperceptible to humans, but for the much more sensitive dog's nose it is no problem. With appropriate training, almost every dog is able to follow a human trace and to distinguish it from the traces of other people and even older tracks of the same person.

Mantrailing as a kind of "nose work" for dogs is therefore different from "tracking" - the search for a trail caused by ground damage - and seeking - the finding of a source of scent.


Mantrailing is used to find lost people. As part of the necessary training it has been found out, however, that it is an excellent way to work with the dog according to its disposition.

In Mantrailing dog and human being are working as a team. The human being learns to read the dog in training and to trust him. The bond will be strengthened and the dog will be more balanced.

Depending on the performance of the dog we train in different environments and always try to create a challenge for the dog by introducing new scenarios.

So Mantrailing will never get boring!
