This presentation is geared to introduce Mantrailing as a dog sport. It will talk about our methods to teach it, the hypothetical science behind it and how the sport can influence a dog´s behaviour even off the trail.

Lisa Gorenflo | What is Mantrailing and can it help modify behaviour?

  • Lisa Gorenflo gained her certification as a Mantrailing Instructor for Mantrailing International over the past 5 years and is the only instructor to hold this qualification in the UK. She qualified her own dog under the British Mantrailing Academy and was also awarded the Skills for Justice certificate.

    Mantrailing UK is the only Mantrailing training centre in the UK certified by Mantrailing International.

    Lisa has a background in the IGP and THS sport. She has worked with dogs all over the world, including rescue centres in Germany and the US, rehabilitating and training dogs for a better life.

    Her training is based on the Kocher Method, but she tailors all of her training to work for each individual dog handler team. Her goal is for each team to find their way together.
