The sport of Mantrailing is open to all breed and ages as well as all humans, no matter what their ability. No obedience is needed as we will be homing your dogs' natural ability to follow scent. Once completed you can attend any Mantrailing Session By booking this service you are reserving a space in one of the Amy Millward Dog Training courses/classes. Class sizes are limited to ensure quality. Therefore, we must be notified at least 6 working days before the course/class begins for any transfers or refunds (minus a 25% processing fee). The cancellation fee after this period is 100%, unless the space can be otherwise assigned. The first step to becoming a Mantrailer team with your dog is to attend the Mantrailing Introduction Course. The course is approximately three hours with dogs being works individually, it is £60 per dog and handler team, which includes reward pots and basic guide. Once a handler has completed the Introduction Course they will then be able to attend Training Sessions at £25 per dog. These are held all over Carmarthenshire and can be booked as and when it suits the handler. Here are a few things that you should bring to your session; • A flat collar & lead (no extendable leads please) • All-weather clothes (incl. waterproof gear) • A harness preferably one that your dog has never worn before (please don’t put it on your dog until instructed) • A long line (8-10m), I have these to borrow • High value (!!) dog treats (NO DRY FOOD!) e.g.: wet food, tinned fish, Primula cheese, etc. (if you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to ask, this plays a very important role). Bring enough treats to fill both pots three times over. • Dog water and a bowl • If your dog is ball/toy-crazy, please bring their most favourite • Bring a scent article with you e.g. a small scarf, headband, glove, sock, etc. and place it in a small, re-sealable bag I stock a small selection of trailing leads, KONG toys, and reward pots so please let me know if you need anything.
