This presentation will take participants into the world of Mantrailing, the “art” of following a person's scent and later identifying that person or the end of the trail. Mantrailing, which is used in search and rescue operations and in criminal investigations, can be trained either by amateurs or professionals.
The presentation will take a look at the most important aspects of Mantrailing training; the advantages and disadvantages; the training basics; the terminology; communication on the trail and what you need to start. We will also talk about changes in behaviour especially when it comes to fearful dogs.
