Stay Calm & Keep Trailing

The ABCs of Trailing: C is for CALM One of the best things you can do to help your dog whilst trailing is to stay calm. If you panic or start to have doubts, your dog will pick up on it. Conversely if you’re relaxed and trusting, your canine partner will have nothing else to […]

PetTrailer UK

Hi, I’m Becky and I’m the owner and head trainer at PetTrailer UK.

I was first introduced to pettrailing and mantrailing in Austria and fell in love with it immediately! I was amazed by the skill, enthusiasm and team work of everyone involved – especially the dogs 😉

The sense of accomplishment when the handler-dog team find the missing runner (human or animal) is electric – whether you are the handler or a spectator the feeling is contagious!

After my first trail I was addicted. Since then I have qualified as the UK’s first Pet Trail Trainer with Pettrailer in Austria, myself and my trainee pettrailer dog Mabel have obtained our Advanced level qualification on our way to becoming the UK’s first qualified Profesional Pettrailer team and have set up PetTrailer UK to give others the opportunity to start pettrailing!

Wörthersee Trail 55km


The International Pettrailer Event 2017: Wörthersee Trail 55KM

Aim – find the runaway dog! 55km trail + 55hr old trail + 55 teams

A fantastic event held by Pettrailer Austria in Autumn 2017. A trail was laid over the course of 2 days around stunning Lake Wörthersee in Carinthia. 55 teams took up the challenge of trailing approx. 1km each to trace the paw prints of the runaway dog.

Starting before dawn; ascending to heights of 600m; travelling through forests,  over dams, along roads and under railway tracks; Successfully completed after dusk!!

The runaway dog was found 🙂

Reuniting Lost Pets


Pettrailer Austria was the first charity set up in Europe to find lost animals by means of pettrailing. Since it was founded by Markus Burkhardt, the teams of Professionally Trained Pettrailers is growing and the success stories of lost animals reunited with their human families is expanding!

There is no obligation for those who train with Pettrailer to become a professional search team with their dogs, it is simply an opportunity for those who would like to. Extensive training and dedication is required, for those who succeed the rewards are exceptional!

PetTrailer UK Trainer Becky and trainee pettrailer dog Mabel are currently training to become Professional Pettrailers – we will keep you updated!

Hot Dog challenge

Most dogs love to use their nose. Trailing offers a sport for all dog owners who want to provide their best friends with a mentally stimulating challenge which utilises their natural instincts.

Any dog can train with us even if reactive, nervous or anxious.

– Insecure dogs can be helped with trailing as it gives them a problem to solve on their own, therefore helping reduce their insecurities and increase their confidence.

– Trailing offers the ideal brain teaser task for active hunting and herding dogs.

We will help you and your dog strengthen the bond and trust between you.
