In July Ani and myself did our first Mantrailing (search and rescue) exam.
It was pretty hot and a hard test.
The rules are:
Distance: 400-600 meters
2-3 time change of direction
The trail is 20-30 minutes old
Ground: Soft, woods, hey, grass
Scent article: fabric in a plastic bag
Start direction: known
Traillayer is hide invisible for the dog and handler
Double blind (nobody knows the trail, only the traillayer)
Time limit: 20-30 minutes
I am very proud that Ani en me pass this exam!
On our group only two teams made it.
This test is not easy and made for experienced mantrailing teams.
Ani is only 1,5 years old…..
We will work hard to see how far we can come in mantrailing in the future.
As we both love this wonderful hobby/sport.
This picture is made just after we found our traillayer, both of us happy, proud but so tired after the hard work!.
