    Here, we let dogs search on them own pace and cut the corners if they want to, in mantrailing we believe that we can’t determined where the scent went so we can’t punish the dog for following it. We are allowed to reward the dog during the search and they can take a time if they need to.

    Those rules which you mentioned are applying here to tracking. I never done it as my older dog Alaskan Malamute Vena had no interest in such an activities ๐Ÿ˜† With my youngest Yakutian Laika Pixel I went straight to mantrailing. We have been trained by Mantrailing Global (very new company on the market ๐Ÿ˜‰).

    I totally agree that this will not ”fix” the dogs even if some trainers think so, but it give good outlet for them drives. I’m training obedience with Pixel, mantrailing it’s a bit of play for us and relax ๐Ÿ™ƒ
