Mr Wilson left our Rescue Center in June 2018 to live in Germany.

Since then he has become quite the seasoned traveller and has also learnt some new skills.  We recently had an update.

” Dear Kim, remember Mr. Wilson? He went to his new home almost a year ago. He likes man-trailing, ice cream and going on road trips with his favourite humans Rebecka and Fred. This year he went to France, Spain and Corsica. Oh, what an amazing life one can have!”

Mantrailing is something we hear of often from our Germany adopted dogs and Stefi explained a little.

” Mantrailing is a kind of training where the dog uses the individual scent of a person to find him/her, walking more or less precisely on the path the human used. The cue at the start for the dog is e.g. a sock or something else this human was wearing. At the end this person waits (sometimes hidden) and then the dog receives a treat. This is a very simplified explanation”

What a fun way to bond with your dogs, exercise them, and also encourage them to use their natural skills.

Happy man-trailing Mr Wilson and all of the other KAR dogs who are enjoying their “furever” lives all across the world. Don’t worry. Be happy.
