We had a fab day out at Rudry Common with Mantrailing UK – Rhondda Cynon Taff . Rosa, fresh out of her induction back in January, really got to grips with the idea that those odd people hiding in bushes have chicken balls that she can eat, and by the end of the session she was dragging me to these hiding new friends!
What is Mantrailing? Think of Hide and Seek for dogs. Gradually, the searches get longer and more complicated; qualifications in the Mantrailing sport are also available to achieve. I love mantrailing with my dogs as it welcomes dogs of all breeds, dispositions and ages (Rosa is 16).
The other thing I love about Mantrailing is that it has taken me around some of the most beautiful parts of the Rhondda Valley and today was no exception. We then rounded off the day with a lil’ hike up to the fantastic view. The perfect end to a fun morning creating a wonderful sporting relationship with my little senior dog. It felt like we were on top of the world!
