…You want to start a new business alongside your other job, even if your other job is not animal related.

…You love working with dogs and people.

…You think Mantrailing is an awesome dog sport and you can´t wait to attend the next session or to get started.

...You start hounding your local instructor for more sessions.

…You want to add another string to your existing dog training business and offer a great dog sport that any dog and dog owner can join regardless of the breed, age, fitness, temperament and skill level.

...Your considering another dog just so you can do more mantrailing.

…You want to join a supportive community of like-minded people and further your skills.

Don´t worry if you are not business savvy, or haven't been self employed. The course will provide you with the tools to run a successful business, as well as access to a supportive community of helpful professionals.

Joining Mantrailing UK is more than just expanding your mantrailing knowledge, its about learning to teach others and introduce them to the sport. Joining a community where we support each other on the journeys helps us all become successful, rather than letting you struggle alone.

We want to have quality over quantity for our students, and this is why the instructor course is by application only. Applications are all considered individually, and we may speak to the people you have mantrailing with or other training organisations prior to approving the application.

If you are thinking about becoming a Mantrailing instructor, you need to have participated in the sport with your own dog for at least six months prior to joining the course. You can still apply for the course without having completed the full six months, but you will need to have completed it before the start of the course. The prior experience is only needed on UK courses, international courses applicants won't need to have done any mantrailing but it does help if you have done some.

We are launching our new buddy system soon, which allows instructors that have already signed up to an instructor course to shadow experienced and established instructors to gain extra knowledge. This is going to be invaluable for our new instructors.

If the instructor course isn´t enough for you and you want to take the opportunity to up your skills and continuously learn about the world of scent, then you can do so by joining our Guild.
