Mantrailing Dogs

Mantrailing also known as Scent Discrimination or Tracking Dogs are trained to follow the scent trail of a specific individual with the purpose of locating the individual at the end of the scent trail.  Mantrailing dogs are capable of following scent trails that are hours and sometimes days old depending on environmental conditions.  Mantrailing dogs have been known to follow scent trails for several miles to locate missing individuals.
