There is mantrailing and professional mantrailing and there is a world of difference between them.
Mantrailing is a specialized form of Search and Rescue work and within this specialism you also have mantrailing and professional mantrailing.
The latter form is used within the actual deployment of finding missing persons.
I mainly focus on the latter and on the proper training of teams.
Do you want to learn to work with your dog in this way and do you want guidance from a professional?
Then attend my group lessons, the modules or the workshops / seminars.
If there are more dog handlers in your town or village or club who are interested I can come to you and give the lessons or workshop on site.

Mantrailing Netherlands is a training center for specialized Search and Rescue work. We guarantee knowledge, experience and honest feedback when training dogs in the most complicated way of working with dogs: mantrailing!
I am Monique and owner of MantrailingNL. I provide the best possible training for people who want to support the police and family when someone is missing.
My strength is the knowledge about the interaction between the tracking dog and the handler. During the training, dog handlers learn to trust their intuition.
So in a real situation they know perfectly well which method they can use best.

“I have been mantrailing for some time now but after starting off I came across difficulties with my first K9. Whilst researching on the web about different mantrailing instructors and methods I learned about Monique Van Weeren from K9 S&R Mantrailing Nederlands. After quite a bit of correspondence working through some problems together and getting to know her better, I invited her to come do a seminar in Cape Town, South Africa in November 2018. This was a good decision.
Monique has an in depth understanding of mantrailing having trained with some of the "greats" learning various methods and skills along the way. She has further tailored her knowledge for Urban S&R having a lot of success over the years. Through her seminars she teaches the tools needed for a K9 team to train in urban areas. She has a incredible ability to read dogs and their handlers and set up trails to match their skill level helping handlers progress quickly. After the seminar I have definitely learned how to push the boundaries, read my dog better and use these tools to help other handlers whilst remaining honest and true to myself about the abilities of my K9. Monique really was great company as well as a knowledgeable mantrailing handler and we certainly look forward to the next time Monique comes out to South Africa.”
“Monique van Weeren ist eine sehr ehrliche, unglaublich erfahrene Trainerin. Sie erkennt schnell die Defizite, aber auch die Stärken der Teams. Sie stellt sich sehr schnell auf jeden ein und hat viele wegweisende Ideen. Wenn etwas gut läuft hat Sie aber auch die Stärke es so laufen zu lassen und zwingt einem keine Methode über. Ein Seminar mit Ihr macht einfach unglaublich Spaß und regt die kleinen grauen Zellen von Hund und Hundeführer an. Vielen Dank ;) Monique
