MANHUNTING

Every person leaves an individual scent wherever they go. The person might leave - but the scent stays.

That's where we come in! Our courses offer experienced and inexperienced handlers ways to teach their dogs search and rescue techniques. Dogs love it, they do it naturally!  Manhunting is not just a dog sport for professionals, but also a great activity for everyone that likes to spend quality time with their dog.  We have certified local law enforcement and military K9's as well as aficionados looking for a better way to communicate with their dog.
