However, if this isn‘t the case, we welcome you to still apply as we review applications on an individual basis.

My dog can't be left alone, can I still attend the course?

Dogs are worked one at a time and it is important that they are able to be left alone in your vehicle while you are teaching on the instructor course.

If you are unable to bring your dog to the course with you, please get in touch with us so that we can find a solution for you.

Do I have to be able to drive?

We would recommend being able to drive as your dog is required to settle in your vehicle in between practical lessons. It would also allow you to use different locations for sessions once you become an instructor.

My dog is not advanced, does this matter?

The instructor course is all about your learning, teaching and coaching skills. Your Mantrailing skills prior to attending the Instructor course is important, however, we will be focussing on you as an Instructor rather than your dogs Mantrailing level.
